Quick Bites: 31 July

Ambiwerra: more than a mouthful

This year’s Ambiwerra festival promises food, wine, and entertainment to sink your teeth into. The name may be hard to say, but you ought to be concerning your mouth with more important things: like food from more than a dozen of Brisbane’s best restaurants.

River Canteen, Zenbar, Restaurant Two, and Olivetto’s will be just a few of the providers this Sunday, when the festival will kick off from 10.30am at Erinvale St in Corinda. I’ve got my eye on the house made mini doughnuts from Olivetto’s. Wait, maybe some freshly shucked oysters. On the other hand, I have heard good things about Zenbar’s duck wraps. Because all restaurants are presenting their dishes in entree-sized portions, I can have them all! Yay!

Oh, there’s also entertainment, live music, and the traditional ‘Fashion Platter’ fashion awards. Did I mention there’s also wine? There will also be more than 100 wines available to buy, which means no BYO (leave the Fruity Lexia at home. I know, it hurts me too). Awards will be presented next week to the best food and wine supplier, so make sure you get over to Ambiwerra and do a little judging for yourself first. I hope to see many people clutching their bellies in joy this Sunday! Do me proud!
