  • Doomben Racecourse

    Racing Ascot, QLD
    I've been a racegoer since I was a kid (which was a long time ago!) so I've seen Doomben recently be transformed into a much more 'general public-friendly' place to spend a Saturday afternoon.

    They've changed a few things for the better - more bars and dining areas, nicer parade ring for the horses and umbrellas out on the lawn for the punters who want to catch a glimpse of their moneymaker!

    A few things haven't changed at all - the prices are quite expensive for what you get and the food, depending on where you get it, can be a bit hit and miss. For instance, we ordered the cheese platter, and the crackers come in those little individually wrapped packets like you're in hospital - come on!

    A couple of little improvements here and there would see this being the classy day out it's touted to be!
  • Burger Project

    Specialty Food South Brisbane, QLD
    So there are massive Burger Project signs up in Edward Street promising that they're opening soon and we (work buddies & I) have been constantly walking past to see if there's anything happening. Then we discovered they'd opened at South Bank already! So we planned an adventure to try it out.
    I was surprised to find that it was more of a fast food vibe (clearly, I hadn't read the media properly!), but it wasn't a problem. It's also relatively cheap so that's a bonus. We all decided the classic/American chese burgers would be the best bet to start on, to gauge quality.
    We weren't disappointed - the buns came out hot and piled with fresh salad and a nice char grilled beef patty. Mine was perfect and the chips with chipotle salt were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The other girls mentioned their patties were a touch on the salty side which was unfortunate, but I'm sure this is just a teething issue. It was definitely worth the trip to South Bank and I'm still looking forward to Edward Street opening as we'll be visiting this joint frequently!
  • Gelato Messina

    Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt South Brisbane, QLD
    I was so excited to hear that Gelato Messina was finally coming to Brisbane and had been incessently checking the social medias for news of when it was actually opening it's doors. So of course friends and I planned an eating adventure based entirely around visiting Messina. After so much deliberating I ordered a double scoop cone - tira misu and a special flavour of the week - 'the bosses wife' (not sure about that title!) anyway - it was hazelnut and praline and white chocolate and it was glorious. Both gelatos were creamy and rich with generous chunks of chocolate and nuts. There were quite a few people there but we got served pretty quickly. If I lived/worked closer to Messina, I'd be there all the time!
  • Mr Edward's Alehouse and Kitchen

    Restaurants Brisbane, QLD
    Work friends and I quite enjoy to steal away for a midweek lunch at Mr Edwards. Lovely atmosphere and the staff are amazing. The drinks list is extensive and reasonably priced.

    The last time we've visited, we shared a charcuterie board (you choose your own meats and cheese and they serve it up with breads, olives, pickled veg and relish. The proscuitto, brie and olives are outstanding and fresh. The other condiments on the plate let it down a little though, the house made pickled veg were a bit on the sad side, they just looked like they could be a bit fresher, and same with the crostini.

    Before that, we had the fish of the day which was salmon. It was a nice piece of fish, a little overdone but that doesn't really worry me, served on a bed of salad with some potatoes and olives. It was ok, I wouldn't get it again though. There's a steak special we've had previously which is definitely worth getting, and a daily pie which a friend ordered and looked amazing.

    The staff and locale keep me coming back - I'm willing to forgive tiny issues with the food's consistency for it.
  • Kinn Imm

    Restaurants Brisbane, QLD
    Colleagues and I went to try Kinn Imm for lunch recently.

    It was a Friday and pretty busy but we managed to get a table. Wait staff were friendly enough and took our orders fairly promptly. I quite like the decor, it's like you've been transported to another place (presumably Thailand!).

    One thing that bothered me was that everything came out all over the place, so our mains, then what we'd order as entrees and then our drinks. So the table was all cluttered with plates everywhere.

    Anyway, more importantly, the food. Between us we ordered the massaman beef, red duck curry and pad thai as mains, and chive dumplings and thai sausage for entree, washed down with a couple of Asahi beers.

    Chive dumplings were fried in a lot of oil and none of it drained off before it was served which was a bit disappointing. I was hesitant to try the sausage, not knowing what it was meant to be but it was actually quite nice with a strong lemongrass flavour.

    The pad thai was pretty good, not the best I've had and there wasn't much meat or substance to it - just a lot of noodles (I do love noodles though so not so much of a negative there). The curries were what made the meal though, the meat was tender and falling apart and the curries were rich and creamy with just the right amount of spice.

    All in all, a pretty good experience with a couple of areas for improvement.
  • valentina Cafe

    Cafes Mitchelton, QLD
    Visited Valentina this morning for breakfast - we were happy to discover it was open on Good Friday. We ordered coffees and breakfast at the counter and took our seats. Coffees may have taken a little long to come out but maybe I was just keen to get my first caffiene hit of the day. My almond milk coffee was nice and smooth, so it was worth the wait.
    Food came out not long after, other half's big breakfast was massive, and he couldn't finish it. The eggs were silky and well scrambled, surprisingly hard to find sometimes! the bacon had nice colouring. I added his haloumi and tomato to my avocado on house made pumpkin bread.
    The pumpkin bread was pretty tasty, but maybe a bit on the sweet side for my liking, and the feta was just cubes plonked on top of the avo, rather than being crumbled over it as I'd imagined.
    Apart from these couple of nit picky things, our breakfast was really quite good and I'd go back.
    Cafe is also dog friendly which is a bonus!
  • Montezuma's

    Restaurants Albany Creek, QLD
    We know what to expect with Montes, and to be honest we come here regularly. I must admit a couple of visits ago I considered never returning, but have since been lured back by my husband who loves it. If you order the right meals - it's pretty good! The shredded beef is always a winner and I love the rice that's baked on the plate. Glad they changed it back! I think it's back on track, and it's always busy so that can't be a bad thing.
  • Deathproof

    Pubs & Bars New Farm, QLD
    I was so pumped to visit Deathproof Bar after stalking them on Instagram. I was pleased to see something amazing in the gaping (but physically tiny) space left by Anise. Love the artwork, theme and patrons. Bar staff were welcoming and friendly and we didn't want to leave! Great selection of American style bar snacks - think fish tacos, loaded fries, cheese toasties, cocktails, beers and spirits. Can't wait to return.
  • Brooklyn Standard

    Venues & Event Spaces Brisbane, QLD
    Had a quick drinkie here after work recently - good location and I like the underground space. Drinks and bar snacks were reasonably priced, tasty and came out quickly. Bar staff were a bit snooty and there's definitely not enough tables and chairs for everyone unfortunately.
  • New Farm Cinemas

    Cinema New Farm, QLD
    Lovely cinema with indie and 'normal' films shown regularly - great wine selection and massive bean bags to sprawl in, if you're so inclined. Prices are very reasonable for tickets and food and beverages.
  • The Apo

    Restaurants Fortitude Valley, QLD
    I've been to the Apo twice recently(ish). First time late last year we took clients and work colleagues for a Christmas lunch. Decor is a sparse industrial style and very chic. Staff are so friendly and welcoming and they were happy to recommend dishes and cater for vegetarian and gluten free members of our party. We ordered just about everything on the menu and there was so much to choose from. The fried chicken, carrots, charred cabbage, kingfish and steak were all presented beautifully and absolutely delicious. We were there for hours and they were happy to have us.
    I enjoyed myself so much at this lunch that when the next appropriate dining opportunity rolled around, I didn't hesitate to nominate The Apo.
    They had condensed the menu but I was pleased to see most (but not all) of my faves from last time. I was looking forward to the carrots and cabbage again (who'd believe these vegies could taste so good) but the had been struck from the menu. However, we did order many similar items as at the previous visit as well as the lamb ribs and the tuna sashimi. Everything was delicious. A tiny let down was the fact that I was very much looking forward to the Aperol ice pops I'd been seeing on Insta, only to be told that someone had left the freezer open and they'd melted! Espresso martini was a worthy replacement though!
    Love it here and looking forward to returning.
  • Storia on Queen

    Restaurants Brisbane, QLD
    Caught up with friends last week for a quick bite at Storia, a fairly recent addition to the lower end of Queen Street. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and the place is always busy which is a good indication. I ordered the arancini and a gourmet salad, while others at the table ordered the vegetarian risotto and beef burger respectively. Food arrived promptly and we dug in.
    My arancini looked the goods and came with a side of aioli dipping sauce. I'd have preferred a napoli based sauce for them in hindsight. However, the outside was crunchy and cooked perfectly which was a good start. The inside was a bit of a let down to be honest. The rice was quite gluggy and unseasoned and for this reason it seemed there wasn't enough bolognese filling - overall, a bit bland. The salad wasn't particularly gourmet, being mixed leaves topped off with some antipasto mix. It was fine, I definitely ate all of it but wouldn't order again. As a side, the vegetarian risotto was way too saucy with what seemed to be a tomato based pasta sauce. I had a taste and it was a little overpowering. Servings were decent and the burger was good according to Friend No 3.
    I'd give them another chance, as the previous time I visited, the godfather pasta (pork and chilli) was quite good!
  • Master Tom's

    Restaurants Brisbane, QLD
    Visited Master Tom's for the first time last week. We liked the decor and location was convenient to where we work which can be a bit of an abyss for restaurants. They seem to have a good selection of food and drinks (including craft beers). We all ended up ordering burgers. I got the 'Master' which was a basic beef burger on a super soft bun. A friend ordered the 'Plant Master', obviously this was the vegetarian version. Burgers came out fairly quickly with only a modicum of confusion! It's a new business after all. Bun to burger ratio is a bit off, everyone's burgers fell apart all over the place! Potato fries that friends ordered were amazing - they had the skin on and well seasoned. Unfortunately my sweet potato chips were another story - they were a bit limp and not crunchy at all. This seems to happen a lot, no matter where I go though so I'm not holding it against Master Tom's too much! Overall, I think this could become a solid lunch location once they get on their feet a bit more.
  • Mizu Japanese Restaurant

    Takeaways Teneriffe, QLD
    I've been to Mizu for lunch and dinner - both meals were really lovely and you can BYO! For lunch they do mostly bento boxes which are fresh and tasty. Dinner was the winner for me though - they do a wagyu steak stir fry which was incredible. Decor is a bit meh but the food makes up for it! Staff were really nice too.
  • Saks Gourmet Sandwich

    Takeaways Brisbane, QLD
    This is the place to go in the city if you want a fresh sandwich for lunch (or raisin toast for breakfast!). Great range of breads and fresh delicious toppings. Staff are always running around like crazy as it's so busy but they're always polite and friendly.
  • Gusto Da Gianni

    Restaurants Hamilton, QLD
    Gusto da Gianni is traditional Italian fare done exceptionally well. The food is rustic and simple but oh so good. I love it here, the best thing to do is order a selection of small plates and share with friends and a bottle of (insert your drink of choice here!). Staff are welcoming and friendly. Price is a little expensive but I don't have a problem paying for quality food and ingredients.
  • SONO Japanese Restaurant Portside

    Restaurants Hamilton, QLD
    Sono is a fantastic authentic Japanese experience. Staff are lovely and attentive, the food is absolutely delightful and so fresh. Consistently excellent. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for! Love it.
  • Grilling Art

    Restaurants Stafford Heights, QLD
    We went here expecting great burgers, and sadly we were disappointed. Nothing terribly wrong with them, but you could tell the quality of the ingredients was just average. Service was pretty slow, especially considering we were there with only a couple of others.
  • Grill'd

    Restaurants Everton Park, QLD
    I must admit I have a soft spot for Grill'd - any Grill'd, anywhere but this is my local so it gets all the credit. I love the bugers and fries here (potato fries that is, the other kinds aren't that great). Staff are always welcoming and friendly - it's a regular cheap dinner venue for us.
  • Stones on Everton

    Restaurants Everton Hills, QLD
    I am torn by this place - I did have a nice time and I enjoyed the novelty of cooking my own steak. It was a lovely quality eye fillet and I did do a great job of cooking it if I do say so myself! The prices are pretty hefty though and you end up with the sizzling juices flying everywhere so don't wear white! The staff are super friendly and helpful and the other half and I are keen to try their takeaway rib special one day.
