Suburban foodies: Newstead

  • Food & Booze
Often overlooked next to the glittering gems that are the New Farm and Fortitude Valley dining precincts, Newstead is coming into its own, with the best of both the bustling inner city and the leisurely riverside lifestyle. And with an ever-growing selection of spots to eat and drink, we’re developing quite the crush on the leafy suburb – and it’s easy parking. Offering feeds for all times of the day, and for every palate, it is with some hesitation that we share the best of Newstead. We almost want to keep them all to ourselves! Hatch & Co. | 76 Skyring Terrace With a direct line of sight to the iconic glowing halos at Gasworks, Hatch & Co. is sophisticated simplicity done just right. Perfect for any time of the day and any occasion (post-grocery shopping cocktails, perhaps?), you’ll find yourself becoming a regular after sampling their chargrilled lamb ribs and bucket list worthy calamari. Rogue Bar and Bistro | 14 Austin Street Rogue takes ‘simple’ and turn it into jaw-dropping. Take their menu item named simply ‘pig,’ which is actually a savoury apple pie creation with shredded pork belly, apple chutney and horseradish ice-cream. Madness or genius? We’re going with the latter. Don’t even get us started on dessert. chester street brisbane restaurants Chester St. Bakery | 32 Chester Street Bakery by day, cocktail and beer bar by night, Chester St. Bakery has all the bases covered. Stop in for an afternoon slice of black forest cake, balance it out with a fresh and healthy smoothie (that works, right?) and stay for wood-fired pizzas and sangria. Then finish everything off with their Nutella lasagna. Newstead Brewing Co. | 85 Dogget Street Turning an old bus depot into their own brewery, Newstead Brewing Co. are living every home brewer’s dream. While their food menu is every carnivore’s dream, we’d recommend stopping by when one of Brisbane’s tasty food trucks is visiting, because there’s nothing a freshly brewed beer goes down better with than good street food. Peng You | Gasworks Plaza, 76 Skyring Terrace ‘Chinese’ and ‘tapas’ aren’t two words you see together often but Peng You, another Gasworks restaurant makes it work – and makes it work well. Part yum cha, part typical Chinese feast (you know – eyes always bigger than the stomach), you’ll find favourites like sizzling prawns alongside curried roast duck and slow-cooked pork hock. tipplers tap brisbane restaurantsTippler’s Tap | 22 Masters Street Dubbed as THE place for beer enthusiasts to frequent, with a rotating tap menu and an extensive list of bottled brews, Tippler’s Tap is not your average craft beer bar. Their dinner menu is bursting with Chicago style feeds (including $2 Taco Tuesdays) like properly loaded chilli fries and classic hot dogs. Gianni’s Kitchen | 5 Kyabra Street Forget microwaved mac ‘n’ cheese, next time you’re craving cheesy carbs, head straight to Gianni’s for their deep-fried, mozzarella stuffed dough balls. If cheesy carbs aren’t your thing, the deli next door is overflowing with fresh pasta, takeaway eats and traditional Italian deli goodies. The Golden Pig | 38 Ross Street Not just a fabulous cooking school and event place, The Golden Pig is also a café during daylight hours. Owners use their mad cooking skills to plate up creative breakfasts and lunches like their teriyaki pork burger with Japanese mayo and eggplant. All using goodies from local, small scale producers – the best kind! When did you get so delicious, Newstead? Words by Ranyhyn Akui and Sheldon Hitaiki
