The Brisbane bucket list: 10 things to get on your fork in June

The rest of the world might not think it’s cold when the temp drops below 20 degrees, but we do and we’ve got a hankering for some cozy comfort food. And of course we’d never stop at one, we’re going to be eating our way through sweet, salty and every comfort food in between, all season long. Starting with these 10 dishes to brave the chill (just put a light jacket on, ok) for in June. #1. Lemon ricotta hotcakes | Little Loco | New Farm Soft, fluffy and everything you want in a pile of hotcakes, they’re also so pretty you’ll be instagramming pics until they’re almost cold! #2. Choc fudge brownie shake | Flute | Cooparoo Milkshake? More like cake-shake! Flute’s chocolate loaded, brownie laden milkshakes are the breakfast of champions. #3. Dark rendezvous | Delfina’s Bistro | Fortitude Valley This sinful mix of Cuban rum, Tia Maria, condensed milk and fresh espresso will have you shimmying your way into the night! #4. Fast wrap | Public | CBD Public’s infamous Texas brisket, lamb shoulder or tender chicken all wrapped up for a speedy lunch. With a side of salt ‘n’ vinegar fries, of course. brisbane bucket list june 2#5. Taco del Perro | Bloodhound Bar | Fortitude Valley Tac-oh my is more like it!

Pulled brisket hoagie | Mighty Mighty | Fortitude Valley Got a mighty lunchtime hanger? Not after chowing down on a foot long roll stuffed with pulled brisket, crispy slaw, hot sauce and pickles, you won’t! #8. Sichuan salt quail | Alchemy | CBD Always pushing the boundaries, Alchemy never fails to impress, and their Sichuan salt quail with pickled cabbage is worth hitting the city for. #9. Chocolate brownie | Cicada | CBD You may not want to order one of these if you have an addictive personality – because you’ll immediately order five more. They’re that good. #10. Fairy floss brioche | Ramekins Café | Carseldine Making fairy floss for breakfast totally acceptable, Ramekins throw it atop toasted brioche smeared with marscapone and strawberries. Get ticking!
