  • Mighty Mighty cue & brew sits in prime M&A lane real estate with plenty of on-street visibility on McLachlan St. They offer a meaty menu with a Southern American flavour, so think hickory chip smoked flavours and cornbread them Southerners worship their mamas for. Overall on this visit, we came away disappointed and wondering if we had simply ordered the wrong dishes.

  • Chai Thai is a tiny hole-in-the-wall eatery that's tucked at the very end of a shop row, which is also home to Vespa Pizza and Tandoori King. Yet, despite its little size, it always has a bustling trade and so after one of the SO's physio sessions, we dropped in for dinner.

  • Hey, I’m not suggesting that I have an ounce of street cred to my name, but for the sake of research (and my ever expanding tummy rolls), let’s just say I strutted down with my ace (the SO) to break it down for you readers and check if DA'Burger deserves some props.

  • When I was invited to visit Queensland's Sirromet Winery, I was hesitant. What can a non-wino (and definitely no wine expert) say about their award winning wines? I laid out my concerns to their marketing manager and she very kindly invited me to visit one of their 3 dining venues, Tuscan Terrace. So of course I said yes.

  • While the SO enjoyed the fresh selection of seafood in the chirashi don set at Reef Seafood and Sushi, he lamented that it still didn’t match up to our favourite chirashi don on the Gold Coast by way of variety or aesthetic arrangement. On those fronts, we weren't wowed.
