Word on the street!

Do you follow the mantra ‘fries before guys’? Are you more into club sandwiches than actual clubs? Look, everyone has a weakness – some drop cash on Camilla, some just lock down the biggest UberEATS order in Aussie history. You do you. If you’re daydreaming of burgers and brews while the galpals drool over Brad Pitt, welcome home. We’ll keep you up-to-date on all the latest cravings comin’ outta Brisbane.
Welcome to our house. Westfield Chermside has never looked better, and they’re adding another looker to the list! The two-storey Casa Cibo is due to open early December, serving up a pizza Italian goodness. Chalk it up to good taste – we’ve got the scoop on Stanley Street’s Chalk Hotel! Rumour has it, the closed-down giant will be part of a multi-million dollar refurb, with construction set to start over the next 12 months. We’ll be ready for a brew when it’s done! We’ve bun hearing whispers… Melbourne’s iconic Huxtuburger is rumoured to be making the trek up north. Stay tuned for more deets come 2018! Take a seat, ‘cause we could waffle on all day about this gem. The GC is welcoming its very own waffle bar in December! Oh My Waffle will boast DIY waffle creations, goodies topped in ice cream and sprinkles, and milkshakes (they’re better than yours). And that’s a six, folks! Things are heating up in The Salt Village precinct, with The Bombay Cricketers Club currying out its launch before NYE. The trendy Indian restaurant will welcome Ved Navghare as head chef, and a menu edgier than a good ol’ samosa. Planning a trip down the coast? Water you waiting for? The doors to Ancora will open in Tweed Heads come 2018, with the waterfront spot rolling out Mediterranean-style bites come March.
This is how we Aperol. Brisbane’s flagship Regatta is hosting an Aperol Spritz popup this December. Yeah, we’ll have summer that! Keep an eye out for more details. New year, new cravings. Ring in 2018 with Spicers Hidden Vale’s upcoming Flavours of Summer Festival! The gourmet food feast will run for 20 days for its inaugural run, celebrating fresh produce from local suppliers.
