What to eat and drink this weekend in Brisbane

Food coma, incoming.

We’re ending Autumn in pretty sensational fashion with a number of food and beverage events gracing our river city.

So, whether you opt for an afternoon of cocktails, a five-star Moreton Bay bug croissant, or the best breaky roll in town – this weekend is yours for the taking. 

 

EAT ME 

Gourmet | Moreton Bay bug croissant from Customs House | CBD 

Sea to the City is rolling into town with ocean delicacies in tow this Sunday, May 29, and we’re kicking things off with a Moreton Bay bug croissant at Veuve Clicquot In The Snow

We’ve caught the Moreton Bay bug going around lately, and this buttery, flakey croissant is the only cure. Catch us wining and dining by the river this weekend with croissants in hand.

Hot tip: Wash down your croissant with a glass of Veuve. Duh! 

Gourmand | Bacon & Egg Roll from Yolk | Gasworks Plaza, Newstead 

If you’re feelin’ a seriously good breaky this weekend, we’ve got you covered with a bacon and egg roll from Yolk. Widely known for producing the best bacon and egg rolls in Brisbane, Yolk knows how to do the basics right. 

From creamy cheese to crunchy bacon and the gooey-est eggs on the planet, these humble rolls are the bees knees. 

Hot tip: ask the team to add a hash brown to your roll. Just do it. 

 

DRINK ME 

Gourmet | Urban Cocktail Trail | Various Locations, CBD  

A self-guided cocktail crawl? Count us in! Sip and stroll your way through Brisbane’s best bars this Saturday, May 28 for the Urban Cocktail Trail as part of Dine BNE City. 

The trail begins with a bite to eat and a complimentary glass of bubbles at your starting location, before you set out on your own adventure – sampling 11 signature cocktails as you go. 

Limited tickets remain, so you’ll want to be quick. 

Hot tip: The bootstrap cocktail from Banc Brasserie is a must! 

Gourmand | Alto Espresso from Bar Alto | New Farm 

For the ultimate energy hit this weekend, Bar Alto is coming to the rescue with the Alto Espresso. 

This espresso martini may seem ordinary, but the hint of vanilla Absolut vodka makes this the perfect dessert cocktail to cap off a stellar weekend. 

We’ll have two please! 

Hot tip: Order the arancini – made up of mussels, saffron and ndjua. It’s a no brainer.
