Stokehouse Brisbane

It’s getting really hot lately, isn’t it? Well, of course it is. You live in Brisbane. Don’t act so shocked. And yet every year we complain about the heat, spending our weekends in whatever venues are air-conditioned, and trying desperately to find cool breezes. Look, I’m going to make it...

Atticus Finch coffee 0

Atticus Finch, Paddington

I don’t remember jack from high school. For instance: in grade 8 or 9 we read To Kill a Mockingbird. We did essays on it. I’m pretty sure I smashed out an A or at least a B+ for mine. So you would think I’d remember the messages and the themes at the...

This is 5th Element’s Barrel Aged Kentucky Breakfast ($17):   That’s bacon fat-washed Woodford Reserve and house...

Picnic big breakfast 0

Picnic at Camp Hill

I hate that dilemma where a dish like muesli or yogurt sounds appealing, but you’ve got a slightly raging appetite that morning and know that a bowl of nuts and oats just ain’t gonna cut it. Enter: the side dish. That’s right folks, I solved this problem that has plagued...

Kwan Brothers Opens

I’ve come to the realization that Damian Griffiths is like that chick from high school. You know the one – she was popular, everyone liked her, she got good grades, but she knew how to party too. She somehow ticked all of these damn scholarly boxes and still had a good time, and had...

Rogue Bar and Bistro

Some big, BIG things happened on the weekend. First: I baked brownies and miraculously didn’t eat the entire pan in one day. Second: We found our new FAVOURITE breakfast place in Brisbane. Rogue Bar and Bistro at Newstead is plonked in the middle of a bunch of nondescript buildings (we drove...

Sheraton four points dessert buffet 0

Sheraton Four Points Buffet Opens

Buffets are those kinds of things we all secretly love, but we think that admitting it will somehow show we’re gluttonous pigs. You know what? I’m not here to judge you. I say, embrace the buffet. Go forth and dive into the unlimited seafood, soup, and hot dishes. Get another...

Bay Leaf Albion Indian Delivery 0

Bay Leaf Albion

Some nights (okay, most nights), I really don’t feel like cooking. I want to get home, get into my jammies, and munch on toast while watching The Real Housewives of X.  So when the folks at Menulog contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their online takeaway website,...
