Christmas is right around the corner and we’ve rounded up the ten best eats in Brisbane right now to sample your way through and get you in the festive feasting spirit!
#1. Waffle burger | That Little Place | Mount Gravatt East
Excuse us for waffling on, but the Waffle burger at That Little Place is about to take your breakfast game to the next level, with 3 waffles sandwiching bacon, pulled, cheese and pickles.
#2. Ricotta hotcakes | St Coco Café | Daisy Hill
This new suburban spot has us willing to go the distance for breakfast, with fresh fruit and edible flower topped hotcakes for that bonus Instagram ‘cred.
#3. Riverside picnic | Popolo | South Bank
You bring the wine, Popolo brings everything else – including the blanket, the basket, the arancini and the pizza!
#4. Mac ‘n’ cheese loaded fries | Mac from way back | Food truck
If a whole food truck dedicated to mac ‘n’ cheese wasn’t enough to get you loaded with excitement, they’ve gone ahead and piled it on fries for you!
#5. The Brunch Club | Cloudland | Fortitude Valley
Set up your Sunday with bottomless mimosas under the open sky in Cloudland’s Rainbow Room. Cloudland is inviting one and all for 3 and a half hours of food and booze for their glam Brunch Club!
#6. Soft shell crab taco | Ten Piece Cutlery | Eat Street
Taco ‘bout tasty! Ten Piece Cutlery, the brainchild of Masterchef’s Matthew Sinclair, is dishing up soft shell crab tacos from their home in Eat Street.
#7. Pink Peppercorn cocktail | Sixteen Antlers | CBD
We’re tickled pick by the Pink Peppercorn cocktail – Absolut Vodka, peach schnapps, apple juice, cranberry juice, pink peppercorns, chilli and lime.
#8. Polenta chips | Il Verde | Bowen Hills
There’s polenta to love above Brisbane’s newest Italian spot but their crispy polenta chips take the carb-loaded cake this month!
#9. Smoked pork belly | King Arthur Café | Fortitude Valley
Turns out you don’t need bacon and eggs to make a droolworthy breakfast, no with King Arthur’s juicy smoked pork belly with eggs, creamed leek and fresh apple to tuck into!
#10. Passionfruit lamingtons | Reid Street Kitchen | Market stall
Regular lamingtons are so 1990s. Reid Street Kitchen has taken the classic lamington to the next, sweet, fruity level with their HUGE passionfruit lamingtons!
Happy festive feasting!
