HOT: Jubilee Hotel Bistro – 470 St Paul’s Terrace, Fortitude Valley.

Another of Brisbane’s well known pubs that’s undergone a serious face lift in the last few years is the Jubilee Hotel, case in particular the beer garden and dining area.  I held a mid-week customer meeting over lunch at the Jubilee Hotel Bistro recently and it was a good thing we rocked up early as the crowds began to descend once the clock struck midday. 

With a couple of tap beers on the go and the cricket playing quietly on various screens scattered through out the alfresco dining area, viagra the casual vibe and ambience made it tricky to strike up any work related conversation at all. 

The menu has a good selection of burgers, vcialis 40mg wraps, salads and more substantial meals all of which sounded really tempting.  I had trouble going past the Tandoori chicken burger with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and minted yoghurt plus a side of thick but chips ($17).

 

There was a bit too much bread for my liking so I discarded the top of my burger bun, but that would be the only criticism.  The chicken was tender and the Tandoori was just the right amount of spicy.

 CT had the Waygu beef burger with caramelised onion, mixed lettuce, tomato, bacon, Swiss cheese and smoky BBQ sauce with chips ($17).  I think he had similar issues with getting through the thick layers of burger bun, but quietly wrestled his way through to the good bits and commented on how tender and tasty the meat was.

 

BF overlooked the burgers and opted for the chicken saltimbocca – oven baked chicken breast filled with prosciutto and mozzarella with white wine and cream sauce on mash with garlic greens ($23).  It looked like something you’d expect from a fine dining establishment and although it was a little heavy and rich for my stomach, it really was an exceptional meal, particularly for the price.

 

Gone are the days of rough n tumble at The Jube, and whilst they’ve spruced things up, they haven’t gone overboard with the whole gastro pub thing.  They’ve kept things real, avoided the snob factor and created an atmosphere for enjoyment by all, whether they’ve poured out from the Tivoli Theatre next door, the RNA showgrounds or the corporate offices across the street.
