Bungalow 8

Ah BUNGAS! One of few places on King Street Wharf that I haven’t boycotted. All the brown and wood of the place give that island, resort, beach bar kind of feel. It helps to have plenty of couch booths and tables facing a part of Sydney Harbour in the covered air to chillax. By night, they fire up the Survivor torches and spin tracks for a bit of a boogie woogie.

But before all the dancing, the crowd needs a feed, which is what the kitchen is for. Pretty much your standard pub grub, tweaked slightly for the ever so slightly more up market types that graze the venue. Pepper steak is garnished with sweet potato crisps, thickly beer battered fish and equally thick cut chips with gourmet greens separated, suspiciously Bird’s Eye crumbed salt and pepper squid also comes with the same chippies to a generous chicken Caesar salad. Fish pie satisfies, diced firm white fish fillet chunks cooked in a thick white sauce carried in a bowl and lid of baked crispy pastry.

So it sounds like a decent place for booze and not bad for grub either. What’s the catch? The unfortunate KSW premium.
