HOT: Vio’s Italian Ristorante – 157 Given Tce, Paddington.

For someone who is based in Milton for work, it’s odd that I’ve not sampled the myriad of local dining options and watering holes around the Paddington and Caxton St Entertainment precincts.  I’m not sure what it is, but I rarely venture to that area for a meal, however following my lovely dining experience at […]

HOT: Sono, Portside Wharf – 39 Hercules St, Hamilton.

Not too much of an introduction is required for Sono (Portside or City), stuff particularly for fans of Japanese cuisine.  So I’ll get straight to the point.  I’ve found a new love when it comes to teppanyaki….sorry Kabuki, we’re having a break. MM and I joined our besties for a double date recently to celebrate […]

HOT: E’cco Bistro – 100 Boundary St, Brisbane

This was a long overdue dining experience.  E’cco is nothing new to Brisbane and I don’t even hear its name thrown around so much anymore as a dining destination for locals or out-of-towners, ampoule but it’s been on my list for years.  Celebrating 2 years of wedded bliss last month, MM and I figured we’d […]

NOT – Gillian’s Garden Cafe – 999 Stanley St, East Brisbane

Sigh.  Gillian’s Garden Cafe has so much potential; lovely food and beautiful surroundings however their far too close-to-zero care factor was a real let down when MM and I sat for breakfast here recently. Nestled in amongst the lovely greenery of the Cottage Garden Nursery, Gillian’s Garden Cafe couldn’t be better as far as ambience, […]

NOT – Harajuku Gyoza – 394 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley.

Ok…so some readers will find this one a little controversial, but I’m willing to take the risk.  Harajuku Gyoza in the Valley is one of the most talked about, raved about and word-of-mouthed about venues to hit our streets recently – and I’m going to bag it.  Read on if you dare…. After being warned […]

HOT – Max Brenner – Shop 1.1 and 1.2, Stanley St Plaza, Southbank

Ok, so Max Brenner and his wicked stores don’t need much by the way of introduction, so I’m just gonna tell it how it is.  There’s always a queue, if not 10 or so deep it’s well out the door, particularly in the evenings.  There’s a general lack of order and grace in the whole […]

HOT – Bistrot Bistro – 14 Logan Rd, Woolloongabba

Watch out Montrachet, tadalafil you have a new contender in the modern French cuisine competition with south side contender Bistrot Bistro. Regulars to the Logan Rd precinct across from the Gabba (with the occasional tipple at nearby Canvas), ailment Bistrot Bistro was a chance encounter for MM and I recently, malady even though we’d had […]

HOT – Biagio Restaurant – 191 Musgrave Rd, Red Hill.

Congratulations Red Hill, you’re now home to my favourite Italian restaurant!  I have no idea how Biagio has remained off my radar for this long, but thanks to a friend who literally stumbled across this little gem, I now know where to go for awesome Italian cuisine. Biagio is essentially a fine dining Italian restaurant, […]

HOT – Stone and Metal – Shop 3/60 James St (Cnr Arthur St), Fortitude Valley

From June 2nd to 9th, sildenafil James St businesses will kick things up a notch in with a cool, new local project which sees the showcasing of contemporary art within the design and retail stores that reside on the funky strip. One of the participating retailers is the ultra cool and seriously original Stone and […]

HOT: Moo Moo (The Wine Bar & Grill) – Stamford Plaza, Edward St, Brisbane.

Moo Moo’s probably doesn’t require too much of an introduction – it’s not too hard to guess they know a bit about how to cook a decent slab of meat.  Having only sipped on delicious champagne in Moo Moo’s very funky, New York-esk bar on one occasion, it was with utter delight that I accepted […]
