EAT ME 

Gourmet | Chef’s Menu at Citrique Restaurant | Gold Coast 

Citrique restaurant has once again exceeded our dining expectations, this time with their indulgent Chef’s Menu. Designed to be experienced by the entire table, Citrique’s five-course degustation is truly on another level. With a menu featuring locally-sourced produce, this is one dining experience you’ll want to relive again, and again. 

Priced at $120 per person, do yourself a favour and lock in your booking, ASAP. 

Hot tip: They also do an excellent breakfast! 

Gourmand | Cheese bomb burger from Slow Smoke Bistro | Redcliffe 

There’s no such thing as too much cheese! Slow Smoke Bistro has upped the burger ante with their mouth-watering Cheese Bomb burger and we’re so here for it.

Watch on in awe as the cheesy waterfall cascades down the sides of the burger, enveloping it in all its glory. True burger fans, this is an absolute must! 

Hot tip:  Try the pork ribs if you’re extra hungry!

 

DRINK ME 

Gourmet | Patron Tommy’s Margarita from Patina Alumni Court | St Lucia 

Over at Alumni Court, Patina’s Patrón Tequila pop-up is in full swing, featuring three Patron cocktails and a seasonal bar menu. Sipping the Patrón Tommy’s Margarita has to be on your weekend agenda, featuring agave syrup, a zing of lime juice, and the all-important Patrón Silver. Perfect for university students looking to blow off some steam before exams! 

Hot tip: Order the tempura pumpkin flowers. Just do it. 

Gourmand | Italian Hot Chocolate from La Macelleria | Bowen Hills

Looks can be deceiving – luckily, La Macelleria’s Italian Hot Chocolate is just as creamy and rich as it appears. Like a comfy, warm hug, you can’t be down with hot chocolatey goodness in your hands.

Hot tip: Grab a scoop of gelato while you’re there, obviously.
