Forget the diet, it's Good Food Month

Whilst we don’t believe in bad food (yes, even that greasy 3am kebab has a special place in our hearts), we are always especially excited when July rolls around and brings Good Food Month with it.

From Night Noodle Markets to seafood feasts and luxe degustations, we’ve rounded up the best of Good Food Month.


Get ready for oodles of noodles at this year’s markets from 25 July – August 5! With over twenty sizzling Asian food stalls, feast on signature dishes from favourites including the phorito from Little Kyoto, Bulgogi Beef egg waffle from Puffle, juicy pork and chive dumplings from Little Red Dumpling and chicken adobo fries from Hoy Pinoy. Searching for a sweet treat? Hit up N2 Gelato or Black Star Pastry for their famous watermelon cake! #insta.


There will be no regretti over this spaghetti! Join two of the country’s biggest names in Italian cooking, Shaun Malone of Bucci and Monty Koludrovic of Icebergs Dining Room & Bar for the epic Pasta Party on July 12! Indulge in CarbFest 18’ with four decadent courses. Each course will be introduced by the Chef and matched with an equally delicious wine. This event sold out in hours in Perth and Canberra so get in QUICK. Tickets are $120 and available here.


Lookin’ to lunch? Look no further friends. Let’s Do Lunch serves up Brisbane’s best lunch experiences – all for just $38, including a cheeky beer, wine or soft drink. Tuck into two courses from The Wolfe, enjoy Ora King salmon with white wine and sorrel sauce from Montrache or sit back and savour slow cooked beef cheek at ARIA.


Worked up a thirst from all this feasting? Sip your way through the best of Coonawarra at Brand’s Laira Pop Up Cellar Door. Try the classic Coonawarra Cabernet, refreshing whites and even a cheeky rosé. Looking for something special? The 2015 Flagship One Seven One Cabernet Sauvignon is globally known as one of the best in the business.

Clear your calendars folks, there’s eating to do!
