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 – The Villager Hotel (Gastrobar) – 185 George St Brisbane CBD.

Underwhelming is probably the best term I can use to describe my verdict on lunch from the gastrobar menu at The Villager Hotel.  Once again my expectations probably got the better of me, cialis but gastrobar and supper club are the kinds of words you associate with awesomeness and big expectations when it comes to […]

A friend of mine ‘checks in’ to Taro’s Ramen & Cafe every Thursday night and just raves about the quality of food.  Can ramen really be that good?  I eventaully managed to wangle myself an invitation (after some not so gentle persuasion) to see what all the fuss was about. The four of us kicked […]

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

HOT: Bavarian Bier Café – Level 1, 45 Eagle St, Eagle St Pier, Brisbane

If I had to sum the Bavarian Bier Cafe up in ten words or less it would be a no brainer – big jugs, cheap tight shirts, generic short skirts.  Interested?  The BBC takes up serious real estate at the old Vinos premises, order at the top of the Eagle St Pier escalators.  Decked out […]

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 […]
