What to eat and drink this weekend in Brisbane

Another long weekend? Don’t mind if we do.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The humidity is on the way out (finally) and we’re being treated to THREE long weekends in a row. What a time. 

Make the most of your long weekend, dear foodies, and fill up on all the gastronomic goodies you can get your hands on.

EAT ME 

Gourmet | ‘Feed Me Now’ Banquet at Ping Pong | Newstead 

Looking for a way to avoid any hangry family members this weekend? Keep the fam satisfied and tummy rumbles at bay with Ping Pong’s scrumptious ‘Feed Me Now’ banquet. Chow down on caramelised pork belly betel leaf, san choy bow, fried chicken ribs, a good old pad Thai and so much more! 

Hot tip: Their $16 cocktail slushies are a must! 

Gourmand | Donut King x Playstation Pop Up at Pacific Fair | Gold Coast 

Calling all gamers! Celebrate one of the greatest crossovers to mark this generation: PlayStation and Donut King. With $50,000 in prizes to be won, including one of five PlayStation 5 consoles, head over to Donut King’s Pacific Fair pop-up this Labour Day weekend and enjoy FREE sugar coated donuts shaped like controller buttons. It’s the ultimate gaming snack!

Hot tip: Grab a box to take home! 

 

DRINK ME 

Gourmet | Santorini Southside from Greca | Fortitude Valley 

A contemporary Greek taverna complete with river views and warm mediterranean hospitality; could there be a more perfect place to unwind this weekend? Sip away the stress of the week with Greca’s Tommy’s Margarita, made with Espolon Blanco, agave, lime, and dehydrated lime salt. Aaaahhhh. 

Hot tip: Order the saganaki to go with it. Just do it. 

Gourmand | Pilgrim Passion Juice from Kiki Kiosk | South Brisbane 

Start your weekend refreshed (or maybe grab it Tuesday morning….) with the zesty goodness of Kiki’s pilgrim passion juice – made on freshly squeezed apple, cucumber, spinach, orange and pineapple. 

For a healthy pick me up, look no further!

Hot tip: Grab a Doughluxe doughnut to go. Because it’s all about balance, right?
