Black Bird Bar & Grill

I feel I don’t appreciate the Brisbane River enough. Yes, most of the time it looks like crap. Yes, it was a bit annoying in January 2011 (and January 1974. And January 2013. Anyway…). But at night, the view is something special, even more so when you’re in the heart...

Ping Pong @ Grill’d!

Do you like burgers? Do you like Ping Pong? Do you like kittens? Well, you’ll get the first two at Grill’d in the Wintergarden! The funky city spot has transformed their back area into a Ping Pong wonderland, with two tables and balls galore. We popped by recently and grabbed...

South Bank Surf Club’s New Menu

Have you ever heard of warm up ribs? They’re the ribs you have the night before you go out for your main ribs. They are absolutely, totally necessary. So D and I were pleased to see them recently at a ‘sneak peek’ event for South Bank Surf Club’s new summer...

Bacchus

          D and I were recently invited to try dinner at Bacchus, but there was one issue. No, it wasn’t the location (upstairs in the Rydges Hotel in Southbank – hello, cool rooftop vibe!) And it wasn’t the menu (sticky date soufflé…goat’s cheese panna cotta…pan roasted snapper, to...

South Bank Surf Club

Why are there hardly any river-front bars in Brisbane? Okay, let’s take Fridays and the like out of the equation. Seriously, for a city that dedicates a yearly festival to the damn river, there’s not many restaurants and bars taking advantage of the views. Thankfully, South Bank has a new-ish...

Jeremy’s

                I am a major procrastinator. I always put off things like cleaning my room, because I’d rather 1) pick all the raisins out of the muesli and eat them, 2) lie on my bed and read six month old issues of NW...

Siana Review

So, I have a bit of a burping problem. Shocking, I know. But let me tell you: I can let out some amazing belches. They are whoppers. My brother taught me how, and now I beat even him when we have a burp-off (and before you ask, we’re both in...

Bar Barossa Blogger Dinner 4

Bar Barossa Blogger Dinner

Blogger Bonanza (oh and good food + wine) Blogging (or is it pronounched ‘yohging’?) has not quite taken off in Brisbane as it has in Melbourne, Sydney, and especially North America. Usually when I tell people I have a blog I am met with a blank look. It was, therefore,...

Cicada Review

Cool Confusion I hate Crocs. Not because they’re sort of ugly (apologies to any Crocs lovers out there). I hate them because as a shoe, they fail. What are they? Are they gardening shoes? Are they shoes to wear in the shower at the gym? Are they casual weekend shoes?...
