Honkas Bar + Eats
Stationed on the back streets of Potts Point, Honkas Bar + Eats has been whipping up tasty feeds inspired by the street vendors of Korea, Japan, and Vietnam since it opened back in 2018.
The beauty of Honkas is that it’s full of both crowd-pleasers and surprises. While it’s street-level entry is painted over with custom street art, Honkas extends into a multi-purpose venue featuring three private events spaces (which can fit up to 150 people) and a central courtyard. To make things even better, Honkas is completely dog-friendly.
To fill yourselves up, peruse the menu mixed with a dedicated bao bun line-up and a selection of small to larger-size dishes. Get your bao fix with a chicken bao loaded with maple syrup, sriracha mayo, and Vietnamese slaw, plus the barramundi bao slathered in miso mayonnaise. It’s absolutely as delicious as it sounds.
If you’re looking to clean up a bit more, the prawn toast partnered with Vietnam slaw and chilli mayo is a clear standout, as are all the pan-fried dumplings and fried cheese wonton with sweet chilli. Moral of the story being, try as much as possible.
And while the drinks menu is packed-to-the-rafters with cocktails and a full suite of vino, Honkas does you a real solid with a smorgasbord of weekly food and drink specials that will have you living your best life without breaking the bank.
From Wednesdays through to Fridays, this joint plates up $1 wings, dumplings, and karaage chicken (different on each day). On weekends, Honkas doesn’t shy away from a mega bottomless brunch feast that starts at midday and gives you unlimited beer, wine, and sparkling for two whole hours at $80.
Finally, Honkas also throws down a bottomless yum cha feed that needs to be on your feasting radar. Every Sunday, with bookings starting as early as 11.30am, tuck into a 90-minute bottomless yum cha feast for a very nice $35. On top of that, you’ll get to swig back $7 Bloody Mary’s and $6 beer and wine. Too good to be true? We thought so too.
