  • Pig’s Ear Wine and Grill is not quite the posh romantic restaurant for a date night, but it certainly looked swanky with its handcrafted spotted gum furniture, green rendering on the wall and copper curtains, which to some might exude rich elegance that would spot on in a really nice bed and breakfast in England.

  • If you haven't tried Korean Fried Chicken, you are really missing out. Korean Fried Chicken is apparently a huge part of modern South Korean culture and is cooked twice, so the batter is crunchier and less greasy.

  • After seeing a slew of drool worthy photos of gyros served up at George Calombaris’s Jimmy Grants Fitzroy establishment by several Melbournian foodies, I had my sights set on tasting a gyros for myself. And Gyradiko Brisbane on James Street sounded like just the place to do it.
