Chilliwow’s New Tex Mex Menu

We’re suckers for a good bit of Tex Mex, so when Chilliwow invited us to try their new Smokin’ BBQ Tex Mex Menu – well, we rocked up for dinner as early as we could, senior-citizen style, at 5pm. We started with a couple of Margaritas ($16 each), of course...

Moose & Gibson

Do we have any Block fans out there? I’m sure there are. If you’re like me, it’s difficult to go out on a Sunday night because you’ll sit there the whole time going, “Did it record? What if it didn’t. What if it’s not recording.” When The Block is in...

Sixes and Sevens

Anyone else always feel scruffy when they’re on James St? Come on, you know what I mean. Despite putting care into your outfit, using a bit of hairspray, maybe even putting some face slap on – you still can’t help but feel a little daggy next to all the other...

Claret House Wine Bar

I love me a good hot chip. They’re hearty, salty, carby, and just damn good (especially with a wine or beer). One usually expects to find good chips in a pub, or a dodgy seafood takeaway joint. But I have found them in a chic, hip wine bar/restaurant. It’s true – Claret...

Alfredo’s

What’s happening to Brisbane lately? Recently, we tried to get into three different places for dinner and drinks, and at each place we were turned away as they were all full. What happened to this sleepy little town? It got even crazier when we decided to try our luck at Alfredo’s. Brisbane:...

I love what’s happening to the Valley lately! Oh sure, it’s always had “stuff”, but I’m loving all of the fun new restos and bars that are popping up – especially since they’re all walking distance from eachother. So I can go blow all my cash on organic yogurt at...

Peng You Opens at Gasworks

Yup, yet another funky resto has popped up at Newstead’s Gasworks! Although it opened in November last year, Peng You China Kitchen and Bar had its official launch last night to coincide with Chinese New Year. Promising a modern stance on traditional Asian dining, Peng You features such favourites as...

Artie & Mai

I know a lot of people were devastated when the beloved Stockholm Syndrome shut its doors recently. But guess what? I’m giving y’all a belated Christmas present (or a really, really early one). I’m giving you news about Stockholm’s super-cute, younger, hipper replacement! You’re welcome. Artie & Mai has taken...

Anderson Valley IPA 1

Tippler’s Tap

I’m at a bit of a loss for words. What to say about your new favourite bar in Brisbane? What to say about the place that you immediately race over to, when you read what new beer taps they have? How can you really describe the happiness you feel when you bite...

Chilliwow’s New Menu

Last night the amigos at Chilliwow invited us to have a sneak peek at their new, expanded menu. I’ve never been to the Mexican bar/casual eatery so was excited to check it out – oh heck, I was just excited at the prospect of Margaritas. I tried something different though...
