Brisbane’s fanciest Chinese restaurants
Pek(ing) dining starts here.
Whether it's for a power lunch or bougie date night, Brisbane has plenty of spots to enjoy one of the ocean's finest pleasures.
While we usually enjoy our seafood served in its natural state, it’s hard to beat a golden Mornay, silky pasta, or indulgent brioche bun! Read on for our picks of where to enjoy lobster, in all its glorious forms, in Brisbane.
A newcomer to the Eagle Street Pier scene, this place is lobster by name, lobster by nature! Start off your deep dive with a lobster bisque served with crustacean foam and grissini, move on to the brioche roll loaded with lobster pieces, old school Marie Rose sauce, lettuce and herbs, and finish off your lobster odyssey with a rock lobster, either served chilled with condiments and fresh fruit, or wood-grilled and served in your choice of preparation (butter and garlic, chilli, tomato and shallots, olive oil, lemon and fresh herbs, or with pappardelle in white wine and tomato). Phew… that’s a lot of lobster.
Get your claws around silky lo mein noodles, garlic butter, glistening roe and meaty pieces of painted crayfish at this Howard Smith Wharves hotspot. Okay, okay, it might not be lobster, but it’s a cousin (and we like it just as much!).
For a taste of New York-style opulence (and great food and wine), SK is your go-to! Spoil yourself to the lobster risotto with crustacean bisque, go big with a baked southern rock lobster in garlic butter, lemon, or Mornay-style, or add a little taste of the good stuff as a side with the decadent bug and lobster mashed potato (now that’s our idea of surf and turf).
This buzzing hub of dumplings, dim sum, and deep golden barbecued meats does a mean lobster tail straight from the tank, served with garlic butter and black pepper. Pair it with some crab XLB, scallop and caviar shu mai, and prawn and goji berry cheung fan, and Lob’s your uncle.
Anyone partial to a spot of seafood knows that Reef has the goods… and, like, all of them! Mix up your usual sashimi order and sample the grilled lobster Mornay (available by the half or whole) served with garlic bread and salad.
Lob it to me.
