Sheraton Four Points Buffet Opens

Buffets are those kinds of things we all secretly love, but we think that admitting it will somehow show we’re gluttonous pigs. You know what? I’m not here to judge you. I say, embrace the buffet. Go forth and dive into the unlimited seafood, soup, and hot dishes. Get another...

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...

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...

Burger Urge: Take 2

I’ve actually reviewed Burger Urge before, a couple of years ago, and I distinctly remember passing out in a delirious, slightly comatose state after eating their delicious sweet potato fries. So, obviously when the kind folks offered me a couple of vouchers to use recently, I was game to hit...

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...

Quick Bites: Mother’s Day 2012

When was the last time you took your Momma out for brunch? Maccas drive through doesn’t count. If it’s been a little while, celebrate your ma this Sunday. I’ve rounded up a few ideas on where to go for Mother’s Day brunch in Brisbane. Sadly, Momma T and I are...

Sono restaurant outside 3

Sono Portside

Many years ago a work colleague of mine introduced me to Sono, a fantastic Japanese restaurant above Tattersalls Arcade, off the Queen Street Mall.  We spent many lunch hours dining on delicious bento boxes and sipping the occasional sake. In 2007, Sono opened their second restaurant at Portside, a location...
