3 food trends we wish would come to Brisbane this month

  • Food & Booze
In our hunting through Instagram and the interweb, we’ve found a few tasty looking food trends we seriously want to get our hands on!
Coffee waffle cups 
Ice cream comes in an edible cup – why shouldn’t coffee? Don’t worry, these waffle cones are lined with extra chocolate so they won’t leave you with a handful of hot coffee (and we’ll never argue with extra chocolate). Delicious and good for the environment? We’ll take that as an excuse to up our caffeine intake.
food-trends-waffle-coneTaiyaki 
Since coffee is stealing ice cream’s waffle cones, it’s only fair that ice cream gets something new – and we think that should definitely be taiyaki. These fish shaped pancakes are traditionally filled with red bean paste in Japan, but they’ve been co-opted by ice cream parlours and are being filled with soft serve and tasty toppings instead. Seafood never looked so good.
food-trends-cookie-friesCookie fries
You’ve seen burger fries and you’ve seen haloumi fries – now feast your eyes on cookie fries! Forget round or square cookies, fry shaped biscuits are the new way to go – and not just because it makes them all the easier to dunk in ‘sauces’ like Nutella, strawberry jam and funfetti frosting!
