  • Pizza - one of Italy's most ubiquitous contributions to the culinary world. After conducting The Australian Supermarket Spaghetti Test, I was invited to conduct a test taste challenge with pizzas by Domino's. Well, why not?

  • Since I had heard all manner of good things about The Fishmonger's Wife and I had a hankering for fish, we dropped in one evening to give them a go. But the sour service left enough of bitter aftertaste that we would reconsider making another visit.

  • There has been some excitement in the foodie world, seeing as Minh Le (formerly head chef at Deer Duck Bistro) is at the helm of this new establishment. It is not quite as close as the bustling Gasworks, trendy James Street or neighbourhood Merthyr Village. With the newly opened Escobar just down the street, will The Foraging Quail mark the birth of a new chic dining mini-strip?

  • 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.

  • 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.
