I’m sure we could all get around a Spanish getaway. The dancing, the décor, the siestas, the fiesta’s – sí, it all sounds great, until your bank account gives you the Spanish inquisition. 

But word on the street is that Brisbane has its very own hacienda for authentic Spanish cuisine. Peasant is the place to be if you want to eat like a king (and one of our favourite private dining options in the city!).

You’ll find yourself working your way through Spanish sips and eats right in the heart of Petrie Terrace, and we’re here to guide you through the seemingly endless and equally delicious options with five must try dishes.

#1. Char grilled chorizo

This dish puts the cha cha in char grilled chorizo. Who doesn’t go weak at the knees for this classic, delicately spicy Spanish sausage? Add some yellow capsicum and saffron aioli, and you’ll be dancing all the way home. Peasant Croquettas

#2. Croquetas

There’s nothing better than a croqueta, making it hard to share this tapas favourite. Peasant’s croquetas are full of sweet potato and smashed green pea, with a vegetarian olive tapenade base. You’ll have a real ball trying to keep everyone else’s hands away from your tasty bundles of joy. Peasant Beef Cheeks

#3. Beef cheeks

This cheeky dish features Rangers valley beef cheeks with celeriac and cauliflower puree, shaved kumara crisps, and PX reduction. You’ll want to come back for another meating ASAP.

#4. Pequillo Peppers

This dish will bowl you over. Vegetarian (and adaptable to vegan!), the pequillo peppers are stuffed with saffron rice, seasonal vegetables and romesco sauce. Peasant Dessert board

#5. Dessert tasting platter

Chu know you’ll be wanting churros at the end of your dining experience. Served on a platter with chocolate syrup and a rotating smorgasbord of other Spanish sweets like catalana and cheesecake, you’ll find it pretty hard to be anything less than contento.

How perfecto is that?
