It's not all about eggs and avo at this Gabba hotspot!
While they’re best known and loved for their fresh and healthy breakies, dinner time at Paw Paw is an Indo-inspired exploration of pan-Asian dishes, with everything from bao to curries set to tempt.
Having recently had a refresh, the dinner menu now features a diverse range of dishes broken up into entrées, salads, noodles and rice, meat and poultry, seafood, curries sides and… dessert, of course!
Popcorn pork belly arrives as juicy squares of pork encased in a super crispy batter ready to be covered in a vinegar-heavy spicy dipping sauce, while the fish bao are equally as crisp, nestling huge chunks of white fish in a fluffy bun also featuring Asian slaw, fried garlic, chilli, coriander, and roasted garlic aioli – bao down, we say.
If you know and love the massaman, the new beef short rib rendang is an equal stunner; tender meat (yes, slip-off-the-bone tender), braised kale, and beef floss make for a fresh take on a classic curry, while the spicy-sour fish with snow pea, carrot, enoki mushroom, shiitake mushroom, eschalot, ginger and cashew nut is a classically fragrant take on an Asian seafood dish.
With dining comes wining, and Paw Paw has thought it through, too! The refreshed drinks list features plenty of drops selected to complement the food, while the cocktail menu is classically rooted with some fun, colourful options like the Lavender Butterfly with Ink gin, elderflower, lavender syrup, lime juice and tonic making a perfect aperitif!
With plenty of veggie and vegan-friendly options, dinner at Paw Paw is a one-stop, Insta-worthy shop for feeding a crowd, with banquet menus highlighting an array of top picks – and with a menu like theirs, we always recommend leaving it to the experts!
