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...

Bacon washed bourbon cocktail 0

5th Element South Bank

There’s something quite magical about bacon. It’s cheap. It tastes good. You can use it in everything from breakfast, to pizza, to doughnuts. And now, you can use it in a cocktail too. This is 5th Element’s Barrel Aged Kentucky Breakfast ($17):   That’s bacon fat-washed Woodford Reserve and house...

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...

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 chips 0

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 0

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:...

Papa Jack’s

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...
