  • I don’t talk about Siam Square Thai Restaurant much and haven’t blogged about it, because it’s our local and I selfishly want to keep it to myself. We also often order takeaway and photographing their food in those plastic takeaway containers doesn’t do it any justice.

  • SOFI Spritz is an all natural, all Australian take on the classic Italian spritz. She's made from locally grown Riesling grapes, blood orange, bitters and citrus zest, blended to create a complex, bitter-sweet taste and a crisp, refreshing finish. With no added sugar, she has plenty of sparkling water and a lower alcohol content than most wines (1.3 standard drinks per bottle).

  • Even though I didn't quite get the breakfast I wanted, we certainly got a very positive service experience from The Burrow  and I really hope to go back to have those Wookie Waffles.

  • That walk took us up Brunswick Street and into Anise, a tiny restaurant squished between Gertie’s and Majo’s. Anise has been around a long time and has built a solid reputation for intimate fine dining. Save one small table right by the door, everyone else gets to sit up at the black bar.

  • PUK Espresso was an unexpected find - I had just attended The Art of Fermentation with Sandor Katz session at Kangaroo Point and was on my way home via the Cityhopper when I stumbled upon this little off-the-beaten-track establishment.

  • It's been too long since we dug down for yum cha and the ones we usually hit up were either too far or it would be too difficult to find parking. Talk about being lazy. Then we remembered that Bamboo Basket had just opened an outlet at Portside in Hamilton, a much more reasonable drive with better chances of scoring a park than its South Brisbane location.

  • For those of you on the north side, you're lucky - you now have the Phoenix Bar at the Bracken Ridge Tavern. It opened last year after extensive renovations and the White family have done a great job in bringing a little bit of the city to the north side.
