Head for the beach with a well-made bagel in hand thanks to the team at Lox In A Box Bondi.
A day by the water is how Sydneysiders love to do summer. With the festive break nearly upon us, we’ll all be flocking to the sandy shores of our city’s beaches to beat the heat and kick back with our crew. And if you’re looking for the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat during your next visit to Bondi Beach, we’ve found just the spot.
It might just be a hole-in-the-wall but Lox In A Box certainly packs a punch. This newly opened bagel bar and Jewish deli takes inspiration from traditional Jewish delis and kitchens, on a mission to elevate Sydney’s lox and bagel game to the next level. In fact, Lox In A Box prides itself in crafting the perfect lox (or thinly sliced cured salmon served on a bagel and loaded with cream cheese, capers and all the trimmings).
Here, the focus is simple. It starts with hand-sliced, paper-thin and melt-in-your-mouth lox wedged between two slices of freshly baked bagel. The signature Lox Bagel comes packed with pastrami cured lox, schmear, capers, onions and tomato. But the menu here extends beyond just the traditional salmon-focused bagel. You’ll also find LB’s Salad Bagel (with jalapeno schmear, vintage cheddar, grated carrot, cucumber, tomato, onion, beets, rocket) and the Hot Salt Beef Bagel (with corned beef, dill pickles and yellow mustard) on the menu. Plus, all bagels come served with dill pickles and salty potato chips.
As for sides, these guys sure give you plenty of choice. In fact, there are 22 side options punters can add to load up their LB bagel. From a serve of Nanna’s Smashed Avo to a Creamy Potato Salad and even a bottle of Minor Figures Cold Brew coffee ($4), you won’t go hungry from this hole-in-the-wall spot.
Lox In A Box’s takeaway window is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8am until sold out. Organising a picnic or catch up with your crew this summer?
