HOT – Taro’s Ramen & Cafe – Ground Floor, 363 Adelaide St, Brisbane CBD

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 […]

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: 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: Andavanth – 46 Douglas St, Milton

This week sees the return to business for our friends at Andavanth, who were one of the hardest hit Milton based companies in the January floods.  With water well and truly over the roof, as well as a couple of random air conditioning units from downstream, it’s been a long road to recovery for owners […]

HOT: Grindhouse Espresso – 9/360 Logan Rd, Stones Corner

Remember the theme tune to hit 80’s sitcom Cheers?  Something along the lines of “you wanna be where everybody knows your name”….well that’s kind of what came to mind for me when I first stumbled across Grindhouse Espresso.  And to be honest, that’s what keeps me going back…as well as the fact they make a […]

NOT: Sticks Restaurant – Chalk Hotel, 735 Stanley St, Woolloongabba

Many a seedy yet fun-filled night has been spent at Chalk Hotel, doctor cutting a serious rug upstairs over a fruit tingle or two.  So it was a totally new perspective to visit Chalk in the harsh light of day and sit for a morning meal at Sticks, knowing full well what sins would have […]

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: Bunker – 21 Railway Terrace, Milton.

My usual coffee supplier is still re-building after the January floods, shop so getting that hit first thing in the morning has required some exploration around the Milton area, whilst keeping a wide birth from the Euro cafes on Park Rd that never seem to get it right.   Railway Terrace has sprouted a few new […]

NOT: Caffe Di Vita – Shop 3, 1 Macgregor St, Wilston.

It’s not too often that I get a chance to venture to the North side of town for an evening meal, look so I was quite looking forward to meeting EM upon her suggestion of Caffe Di Vita in the popular Wilston village area. Truth be told, for a Thursday night it was a little quiet […]
