We’ve made it through Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Australia Day and Valentine’s Day. Now, there’s no more stressful holidays, unwelcome relatives, and expensive gifts to buy until at least Mother’s Day. This means more dollars to spend on ticking off the best food on our bucket list. Get eating!
#1. Gangnam fries | Junk | South Bank
You won’t find any junk at this new South Bank spot, just crispy seasoned fries topped with house made kimchi, nacho cheese sauce, spring onion and nori. Along with plenty of other pan-Asian eats of course!
#2. Doughnut fries | The Doughnut Bar | Eat Street Markets
Doughnut. Fries. Yes, you read that right. The Doughnut Bar, are dishing up deep fried sticks of dough coated in cinnamon sugar with your choice of chocolate, caramel or raspberry dipping sauce. Fry to keep us away!
#3. Gnocchi | Pearl Café | Woolloongabba
Pearl Café’s brand new menu includes such mouth-watering eats like handmade gnocchi with zucchini, lemon cream, and crisp artichoke.
