The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to forgo many pleasurable things: travelling, dining at restaurants and meeting up with friends, to name a few. But Bondi diner Panama House wants to help Sydneysiders continue to do one of the things they really love by launching a virtual bottomless brunch.
On Saturday April 11, the Campbell Parade restaurant will replicate its regular bottomless brunch service over Zoom. In the morning, diners will receive easy-to-assemble DIY three-course meal kits from the restaurant (booze included). Then, from 12pm to 3pm, DJs will be live-streaming sets while you eat – or you can just hang out with your mates on the app of your choosing.
The three meal kits – all priced at $99 for two people – come with tortilla chips, guacamole, pico de gallo and a salad. For your main dish, choose from chicken enchiladas, vegan enchiladas and Mexican baked eggs (gluten-free and dairy-free options are also available). Also included in the kit: a starter cocktail (either a Bloody Mary or a Paloma) and a “main” drink (choose from a bottle of rosé, eight beers, or a bottle of sparkling wine and OJ to mix up Mimosas). If you’re hoping for a really sloppy Saturday you can add on extra brunch cocktails, including Espresso Martinis and Margaritas ($26 for two serves).
Revellers are advised to dig up their best party outfits and get on FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or Skype with their mates as they drink, dine and dance.
Delivery is free to Bondi, North Bondi, Bondi Junction, Tamarama, Coogee, Rose Bay and Dover Heights, with an additional fee for suburbs outside those areas.
Buy your brunch package online before 12pm on April 9 (or until sold out).
