Auckland: Bedford Soda and Liquor

I have named Bedford Soda & Liquor a Quick Bite as it follows a similar idea as Burger Burger (Casual, quick eating). Also found in Ponsonby Central, its a place specialising in meatballs. Although this place seams original – which it is in Auckland, after some research, Bedford is a follow on from a place in America. 

The idea is simple, each person is given a menu thats usable with whiteboard markers. Another place thats specialising in Organic, FR, and GF. I like how you are able to choose what meat, what sauce and what size. It opens up the options to a wider clientele and you don’t need to feel awkward about asking to change something on the menu.

I don’t think I can tell you what to or not to order when the choice is yours. It covers a range of sauces that appeal to most such as ‘pesto, tomato, gravy etc and each meat plus vege option. From what I have had, the first time I went I think the meat was slightly undercooked – but if you are having premium mince then you should be able to eat your meatballs slightly MR – not chicken obviously. Second time i went, it was much better. Everything should come out piping hot so thats something to be aware of. If your a soda fan, try the Mandarin sodas, as shown below – super tasty and prob one of the better ones i have tried from most places. The menu is nothing too amazing or special but its extensive and good for a cheapish quick bite. Go on – go try it!
