Pony Lounge & Dining is a tapas eatery that Jen and I stumbled across while wandering around The Rocks in Sydney. It’s a pretty trendy looking bistro that offers up a modern Australian form of tapas which basically means its a hodge podge of food from just about everywhere. For our seven courses we had a mixture of meats, seafood and vege that was pretty tasty and also reasonably priced. My favourite course was the sashimi spring roll. I can’t say I’ve heard it done before so there was a bit of novelty about it. More importantly, it tasted awesome.
I came away pretty impressed with Pony. So it was great to read on their website that they’re planning on branching out of Sydney and opening a bistro in Brisbane.
