  • 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.

The SO and I hit up Kettle and Tin's 2nd annual Chilli Cookoff to check out what some of Brisbane’s best chefs from restaurants like Anise, Cove Bar & Dining, Statler & Waldorf, Super Whatnot, Locanda Osteria & Bar and Padre Bar.

  • After unpacking and tackling 2-weeks’ worth of laundry after 2 weeks of work travel in December, we hopped into the car to check out Primal Pantry enroute to the supermarket for the first time. We have been several times since, always for breakfast.

  • 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.

  • There’s roast chicken. And then there's roast chicken. La Rotisserie opened not long after the Gasworks Plaza began welcoming residents last year, and its offering is the humble roast.

  • Swimming works up an appetite, so after a shower back at the hotel, we were in the market for a good breakfast. While we walked back to the hotel, a place caught our eye - Barzura. It had been busy when we went to the beach and now walking back, we noted the buzz hadn’t waned.

The nurses had a couple of recommendations and gave me specific instructions on how to navigate through the inner bowels of the hospital to Boundary Street. Why do they always build hospitals like mazes?
