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...

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...

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...

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:...

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...

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...

Tonic Espresso + Bar

We all have a little story about gin, don’t we? We’ve all got that one friend who bursts into tears whenever she drinks gin at the pub (L, I’m looking at you), and we all remember a time when ordering a ‘G & T’ gave you a bit more of...
