Usually, the prospect of associating with West End’s overwhelming hipster and hippie population is enough to steer me well clear of the admittedly decent restaurants the suburb has to offer. After our experiences at Siam Samrarn, perhaps a second chance is in order?…After all, we were pretty impressed with this Thai restaurant in West End shopping complex.
Chompers — Yeronga
American cuisine to the max… that’s how I like to put it. And that’s how they serve it up at Chompers, a local chain fast-food eatery with stores in Oxley, Yeronga and Daisy Hill. The Brisbane Bites team hit up the Yeronga eatery with a insatiable desire to devour the Oh My Goodness burger — succulent beef patty with cheese & bacon in-between two Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
Maru Korean BBQ Restaurant — CBD
Alright it’s true, we here at Brisbane Bites love a bargain (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?). A few weeks ago the team descended (or ascended – it’s on the first floor) on this neat little Korean BBQ haunt to check out the $10 ($9.90 to be precise) lunch specials.
Alfred & Constance pop-up restaurant, Teneriffe Festival
Ethical food. Simple. Homely. Back to basics. These are some of the tenants of the NEW Alfred and Constance menu as they steam roll ahead for a late September grand opening.
Ben O’Donoghue signature wine sampling at South Bank Surf Club
Looking out from the deck of South Bank Surf Club I can see through the night to the edge of the shore, albeit a man made one. There are sporadic glints of light off the water which could perhaps even be reflections of the moon, should I allow myself to forget my urban surrounds.
Together with the wind rustling through the passionfruit vines trellised along the railings, patio heaters and the spiced apple cider upon which I sip, I am provided with a feeling of warmth that is more reminiscent of a summer night on a nameless Australian coast rather than a June evening on the busy South Bank Arbor.
