So do tell… how did I go? If you like burgers head to bare grill. But on Tuesday, the stars of Nine's 60s-based drama stripped down to film a scene at a 'nudist' beach at 's La Perouse. Found at the southern end of the National Park of Middle Head, you can make your way there by car, or for a more glamorous option get your friends together for a day and all pitch in to hire a catamaran to take you around the harbour. The first stretch of Little Congwong Beach Walk is a sloping concrete path that opens out after about a hundred metres into Congwong Beach, which is quite small and serene. So it was appropriate that I should visit while my friend Matthew is in town. Yes I will freely admit, formerly I was a hater.
The show has been running in the area for over 100 years, but now focuses on education and promotes the awareness and protection of reptiles. Mostly this is commonsense and obvious respect. Not so with Bare Grill's crisp waffle fries topped with juicy pulled pork, more of the epic cheese, spiced aioli, Carolina sticky barbeque sauce, bacon and shallots. Everyone has their own favourite Sydney beach, so do feel free to share your own hot tip for a beautiful beach in the comments below. Rugged bushland, sandstone cliffs, the odd inquisitive lizard at your back and a perfectly calm, clear harbour inlet out the front.
I ordered the Bare Grill burger with grass fed beef, cheese, tomato, sautéed onions and house sauce. There is also markets on Sundays. So I'm blaming Ompty for taking me to lunch at Bare Grill and making me eat burgers, because hot-damn those burgers were delicious! Next time my partner and I agreed just to order one Epic Fries and one burger to share. It was the roulette of pickles. It would appear that I'm on a roll picking out the best burg joints in Sydney of late if you've read my prior reviews. Snuggled in the bays of La Perouse between Fish and Chip restaurants is this neat little cafe which houses some mighty fine burgers; burgers that will absolutely and without a shadow of a doubt obliterate any and all traces of hunger which you may be experiencing. Some people benefit from a sense of appreciation that bodies come in all shapes and sizes.
No 45: Little Congwong Monday 2 January Little Congwong is not officially clothing optional and yet it is. The tail end of the lunchtime rush was wreaking havoc in the cafe's kitchen. After finishing every morsel of my share of The Fatties I moved onto something bigger. If you think the Fort looks familiar, you probably had seen it before — it was one of the locations used in filming Mission Impossible 2! Fries were cooked perfect, they had a good taste I'm not sure if it was from the oil but these had a golden crunch. Once more I must confess to having been a non-believer: one who thought loaded fries all too often presented as a sloppy mess.
This was restated in April 2016 following another petition to the Labor State Government who said they would not approve a nudist beach. It's also a verrry popular spot with the boys, who tend to show off their gym efforts with aplomb here all year long, and especially on hot, summer days, when this area is jam-packed with glistening, muscular bodies in the smallest budgie smugglers you can imagine. It was gone in minutes might Make a menu somewhere sometime soon hopefully I was on a business trip to Sydney from California. My recommendation would be to try the Waffle Fries. Service is A+ when I was there. To buy a drink means a long walk back to the La Perouse shops.
Little Congwong is about 17 kilometres from my home. The house sauce was very nice, probably halfway between a Mary's sauce and thousand island. Natureboy, to his credit, followed the dresscode but I was too chicken to go completely nude so I kept my bikini bottoms on. Little Congwong is traditionally a clothing optional beach, so be aware of what you are getting into. The Bare sauce and melted cheddar combine powers and will literally ooze out of the sides. Double american cheese and pickles are always welcomed and Bare Grill hit the nail on the head. There's an easygoing vibe that's miles away from the prance-and-preen contests that always seem to happen out at North Bondi.
From Watson Bay it is about a 15 minute walk to Lady Bay Beach. I overheard him calling it. Unfortunately dogs are not permitted inside the Royal National Park. No serviettes readily available for eat-in patrons and I had to go back and wait a few minutes to ask for sauce for our chips, these things may sound minor but it could all be easily fixed for a perfect dining experience. The bun was so buttery and everything just melted all together with a hint of truffle from the truffle mayo. The only issue I had was the slices of pickles not mentioned in the description. Then, just before Christmas, rode to Sydney.
There are several restaurants and cafes outside of the national park near the parking loop. History The area is steeped in history. My recommendations are of the beaches I have discovered and appear to be the most popular. Pickles were awesome and added a nice acidic action whilst simultaneously adding texture crunch. He messaged back that he was in Sydney and asked if I were free that afternoon. Booking tickets through the nearby La Perouse museum is a must.
