6 new spots in Brisbane to add to your must-try list

With everything from new juice bars to food trucks to fine dining restaurants popping up in Brisbane each week, it can be hard to keep up. But stick with us and we’ll give you the scoop on the best new foodie spots to add to your must-try list (we’ve all got one)! Wham Bam Banh Mi | Petrie Terrace Wham bam, lunch times just got interesting with the opening of Libertine’s fast and fresh Vietnamese takeaway counter! Drop into the Barracks for a 3 Little Pigs banh mi stuffed with roast pork, braised pork and pork terrine with pickled vegetables or a crispy salad bowl and you can dash back to work with your goodies or stay and linger on the lantern terrace with some complimentary iced tea. Can you keep a secret? | Woolloongabba Not so secret anymore, Woollongabba’s newest watering hole is a funky den inspired by your Nanna’s house. Full of retro furniture and knick knacks collected by the vintage boutique of the same name next door (which is soon to re-open), Can You Keep a Secret will take you back to the decade of velvet armchairs and macramé. Sip on wine, beer, ciders and spirits and send out for takeaway – the bar is BYO snacks (and Vespa Pizza is handily right next door). Workshop 14 | Hamilton Does Brisbane need another craft beer bar? Of course it does! Just opened last week in the Hamilton Harbour dining (and drinking!) precinct, Workshop 41 is all about the brews and booze, with local and international beers, wines and some top shelf whiskey (and whisky!), scotch, gin and rum for the spirit lovers. And as there should be, there’s some tasty bar nibbles alongside the drink offerings, with pizzas, cheese boards and antipastos to cure any late night hanger. new restaurants brisbane steam trainSteam Train Espresso | Red Hill Perfect for a morning coffee pit stop, Steam Train Espresso is Red Hill’s newest addition, with hot drinks, smoothies, fresh sandwiches and baked goods.
