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 […]

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: 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 […]

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: Sake – Level 1, 45 Eagle St, Eagle St Pier.

Another addition to the revamped Eagle St Pier precinct, try Sake is one of several contemporary Japanese venues to have popped up in and around Brisbane in the last few months.  Japanese cuisine never ends up being a cheap eat; whether you’re taking sushi from the train, viagra doing Tepanyaki, or having a sit down […]

HOT: Spirit House – 20 Ninderry Rd, Yandina, Sunshine Coast.

Several credible sources have suggested to me over the last couple of years that the best Thai experience to be found is well off the beaten track in the Sunshine Coast hinterland at Spirit House, order Yandina.  So whilst on our week-long break at Moooloolaba earlier this year, story MM and I decided to indulge […]

HOT: Siana City – Upper Plaza Level, Riparian Plaza, 71 Eagle St, Brisbane.

I’ve always enjoyed Siana City for the sweeping views of the Brisbane River from the alfresco area and they shake some mean cocktails from a list that is well worth sampling on a balmy summer evening.  Filled will suits talking shop most weeknights, and it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, diagnosis but if […]
