Newtown has racked up an impressive collection of vegan places of late, but there’s a whole lot of plant-based eating to be done in Bondi too. Back on Glenayr Ave there’s a pocket-sized establishment selling golden, flaky pies with not an iota of meat in them. The ‘g’day satay’ has many fans because we all know satay sauce goes with everything, including the sweet potato, pumpkin and potato in the filling, but the crowd favourite is the ‘funky chunky’. It’s going for the traditional hallmarks of a classic meat pie, but instead of steak and mushroom, it’s just straight mushies in a salty, savoury gravy with a little mash in there to pad it out. If you’ve been missing your Four’n’Twentys a visit here will cure your cravings. Been pounding the pavement or out in the surf and need to refuel? Say yes to the mash, peas and gravy on the side – tastes like mum’s used to, but is 100 per cent cruelty free.
