Word on the street: foodie news

Brissy is well and truly delivering the goods this week.

It’s a gourmet world, and we’re all just living in it. 


One of the city’s hubs of gastronomy is finally reopening its doors on Wednesday, November 4! GOMA Restaurant will reopen with a new menu highlighting the skill of the kitchen and the freshest local produce, with some special menus and promos planned around upcoming exhibition ‘The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire’.

There’s a cheeky new spaghetti bar coming to Teneriffe–the brainchild of three of Stokehouse Q’s former crew members. Siffredi’s is set to open its doors in mid-November, with a concise menu of four snacks, five spaghetti-based mains, and a boozy soft serve. Stay tuned!

Brisbane’s highest quality luxury catering company, DALTON Catering, has been hand-picked by The Victoria Racing Club at Flemington to be the official local supplier to Brisbane! Their Melbourne Cup and Spring Racing Carnival catering packages are available here, with everything from prawns and oysters with champagne, caviar, cold canapes, petit fours, and more! 

Darvella Patisserie is set to open its doors on Bulimba’s Oxford Street in late November! From the crew behind Pawpaw (and their delicious pop-up bakery), Swiss-inspired Darvella will be serving up cakes, pastries, and breads, alongside coffee and chocolate-infused treats. 

This Sunday marks the most delicious and carbolicious day on the foodie calendar… World Pasta Day. To celebrate, Il Gancio is giving away 100 bags of its finest fresh pasta, and hosting a pop-up with enough fresh pesto pasta to feed an army. The huge pasta pan will be tossing up fresh basil pesto pasta for just $7.

Treasury Brisbane is transforming into a footy lover’s paradise this October and November! Swing by for grand finals this weekend and be treated to 1kg of chicken wings, a beef or veggie burger, or a pizza coupled with a schooner of XXXX for just $20 at Livewire 24/7 Sports Bar!  Foodie specials (and lots of beer!) will continue when State of Origin and the Bledisloe Cup hit the screens–stay tuned here

We’ve long been fans of Newstead speciality coffee house Salt Coffee Roasters, and have been (impatiently) waiting for their newest instalment! Little Salt officially opened its doors on Friday, sitting pretty on the corner of James Street and McLachlan Street in the Valley and slinging Salt’s signature Julie blend, a weekly rotation of freshly roasted single origins for batch brews, and delicious pastries from Sprout Artisan Bakery.
