Quick Bites: 18 September

Chocolate, chocolate, and a bunch of other stuff

I have to get the first two items out of the way very quickly. You will see why soon.

1. 2009 Gluten Free Food Expo. Good for coeliacs/anyone curious about wheat-free food. The Queensland Coeliac Society holding it. More than 35 exhibitors. Food tastings, cooking demos, products for sale. Sunday (20/9) from 9.30am-4pm. RNA Showgrounds. Tickets available at door. Visit site for more info.

2. Pesta Rakyat. AKA Indonesian Festival. 26 September. Lots of good Indonesian food. Traditional and modern Indonesian art, music, and dance. Celebration of Indonesia’s Independence Day. South Bank Parklands, 10am to 10pm. Some events ticketed. Sounds cool.

3. Ok. Now I’ve gotten those two (but important and no doubt awesome) things out of the way, I can move on to the main event: the Chocolate Buffet.

Was that you passing out? Did you fall off your chair? Maybe you dribbled on your keyboard. That’s cool, I won’t judge. And hopefully neither will the geniuses at Bistro Allure, at The Sebel King George Square. They’re holding a 31 Days of Chocolate this month. That means for every day this month, you can slap down $20 and partake in a chocolate buffet. All you can eat chocolate. I KNOW. It’s not just a slap-up soft serve machine and some Sizzler-style chocolate bavarian, either. We’re talking creamy ice cream, Italian coffee and kahlua cups, chocolate cheesecake, petit fours, and warm chocolate puddings. The best bit? You can go twice in one day! The Chocolate Buffet runs from 11.30-3pm and from 5.30pm-10pm. If you have your main meal at Bistro Allure too, the Buffet drops down to $10.50. But you must book-3222 1128. Let’s see, $20×2=$60, and there’s 13 days left in this month, so $20×13…
