We Want More Paw Paw

So nice they had to name it twice, Tingalpa favourite Pawpaw Asian Kitchen is bringing the heat of Southeast Asia to Brisbane!

With a focus on fresh, healthy food, the Venzin Group is now expanding their empire to include Balmoral – hello springrolls!

Open seven nights a week for dinner, and open for breakfast and lunch to soothe your hangover Friday-Sunday, Pawpaw Asian Kitchen will transport you away from Brisbane – and into a Southeast Asian paradise. pawpaw asian kitchen

The all-day breakfast features Pawpaw’s signature twists on classic dishes like hash benedict and avo toast (goodbye mortgage, hellllllllo heaven).

Their take on a benny comes with spinach, poached eggs and your choice of bacon, salmon or halloumi on potato hash – it’s the perfect start to your day – hungover or not. More about shots of wheatgrass than tequila? Revel in the fact that you’re better than everyone else dying around you and order the nutrient bowl with roasted vegetables, edamame, pickled ginger, kale, poached eggs and dukkha.

Hit 11am and we can’t resist the Roti Canai for lunch. Exclusive to Pawpaw Asian Kitchen, the roasted pumpkin, sweet potato and eggplant yellow curry is available veg or vegan – and it’ll satisfy even the fussiest omnivore. Dinner is where the magic really happens, and we suggest hitting up some of their Asian-fusion favourites like steamed bao (pork belly – more like GET IN MY BELLY) or their irresistible DIY duck pancakes – you’d have to be ducking mad not to get around these bad boys. Tingapla and Balmoral too far to travel for their award winning Massaman or lamb rendang? Luckily Pawpaw Asian Kitchen will deliver the goods to your door through their Pawpaw app! Even better, for G&G readers, use the GG20 code at checkout for 20% off your order.

Hungover or healthy, Pawpaw Asian Kitchen is here to look after you, no matter the time – or your state.
