HOT – The Hutch Bistro – Shop 6, 100 Days Rd, Grange.

I don’t often hear of too many North-side based venues making a fuss on the culinary scene, advice so when I first heard about The Hutch Bistro in Grange, capsule I made a special trip just to sample their wares. To be honest I can’t actually remember where I read about The Hutch Bistro in […]

HOT – Des Alpes Swiss Restaurant – 47 Blackwood St, Mitchelton.

Market-goers of Brisbane will know Blackwood St for its monthly Jan Power’s market day.  But did you know Blackwood St is also home to a lovely, ed unassuming, ask family run restaurant that serves delicious, honest, home-style Swiss cuisine? Swiss food, like its people, is largely influenced by its neighbouring countries with the exception of […]

HOT – Ipoh Laksa Malaysian Kitchen – 738 Main St, Kangaroo Point

Continuing on my quest to devour as much Malaysian cuisine as humanly possible (thanks to Malaysia Kitchen Australia), Ipoh Laksa in Kangaroo Point was the most recent venue to have the pleasure of watching me and some friends scoff, groan and visibly expand our waistlines over what was a Malaysian feast of epic proportions, great […]

NOT – Campo Dei Fiori – 278 Junction Rd, Clayfield.

Campo Dei Fiori had come highly recommended to me, rx not only for their filling, hospital home style Italian cuisine, but also their great selection of Italian wines.  Unfortunately this little house of flowers didn’t stack up to its reputation on this occasion, their food and service being very bland and underwhelming. MM and I […]

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, […]

NOT: Egg Bistro – 989 Stanley St, East Brisbane

A couple of false starts and high expectations may well be the reason behind Egg Bistro being awarded a NOT; but after much deliberation and consultation with MM and my inner self, clinic I’m now confident this NOT is justified. I’ve being hearing ‘Egg this’ and ‘Egg that’ in every local rag, stuff and unfortunately […]

HOT: Green Papaya – 898 Stanley Rd, Woolloongabba.

It’s almost starting to wear thin, buy this constant and enduring search for a Thai restaurant in Brisbane that really blows my mind. Time and time again I stumble across venues that do your stock standard (read: mediocre) red curry, or chicken satay with minimal innovation and not a lot of love in its creation. […]

HOT: The Lido – 120 Racecourse Rd, Ascot.

In a spur of the moment decision to venture out for dinner on what was otherwise supposed to be a lazy Saturday night in front of the tele, remedy MM and I decided to hit one of Brisbane’s la-di-da strips – Racecourse Rd in Ascot just for something different. Friends of ours had recommended The […]

HOT: Thai Seasons – 10 River Esplanade, Mooloolaba

In line with our recent Thai theme and my eternal search for the world’s best Thai restaurant, this review exits the geographical boundaries of what’s hot or not in Brisbane, and ventures north to the Sunshine Coast.  Another one of our Christmas time tours of Mooloolaba, Thai Seasons was definitely a highlight and one of […]

HOT: Minh’s Asian Restaurant – Shop 5, 336 Ipswich Rd, Annerley.

Tucked away in the back corner of a small business complex on busy Ipswich Rd, no rx Minh’s Asian is clearly one of south side suburbia’s quiet achievers; it’s a no frills, nurse no fuss restaurant with only a small dining area – but what it lacks in size and grandeur it makes up for […]
