What to eat and drink this weekend in Brisbane

It’s an end of month special!

Firstly, how are we at the final weekend of March?! Secondly, here’s your weekly foodie list to munch (and sip) your way through.

It’s a goodie! 

EAT ME 

Gourmet | Share Board Sundays at La Costa | Fortitude Valley 

You’ve heard of cheese boards, you’ve heard of charcuteries, you’ve heard of fruit platters…but have you ever heard of pizza boards?? Devour two of your favourite La Costa pizzas from a HALF A METRE pizza board. That’s 50cm of carbohydrate heaven.

Or, if you feel like grazing, chow down on yet another HALF A METRE board of antipastos loaded with Italian goodness including fritto misto, burrata, arancini, focaccia and more! Catch these shareboards every Sunday arvo from 12-3pm. 

Hot tip: La Costa is also having a Seafood & Bottomless Sips event this Saturday! Grab your tickets here

Gourmand | Tacos (+ Footy) at Sonny’s | Suncorp Stadium, Milton 

Attention all footy fans – it’s time to level up your game day experience! Cheer on the Broncos this Sunday at Suncorp Stadium’s new Tex-Mex rooftop bar, Sonny’s. 

Tuck into two fresh tacos for $16 while you watch the game from the best seat in the house. With four superb varieties to choose from, each complete with guac, lime, coriander and spanish onion, Sonny’s is guaranteed to be THE place for pre-game and all post game celebrations (or at least make commiserations so much better)!

Hot tip: Grab an ice cold marg while you’re there for an epic day at the footy!

 

DRINK ME 

Gourmet | Hot Cross Bun cocktail at Covent Garden | West End 

It’s hard to believe we’re talking about Easter already (isn’t it still Jan?) but this year, gather your Easter Eggs and get hopping to Covent Garden to try everyone’s favourite seasonal treat – cocktail style. 

Made using limited edition Prohibition X Covent Garden Easter Gin, The Hot Cross Bun cocktail is served warm to highlight the cinnamon and raisin notes of the gin. It’s Easter in a glass! 

Hot tip: Visit CG Gin Co and pick up a bottle of this limited edition gin before it sells out! 

Gourmand | A black cold brew at Fonzie Abbott | Albion 

For those who like their coffee strong, and we mean strong, take your morning cold brew to the next level with Fonzie Abbot’s black cold brew. Made with single origin beans and served in a can straight from the fridge, this is one refreshing pick me up. 

Hot tip: Treat yourself to one of their breakfast wraps – they’re out of this world!
