Word on the street: foodie news

So the weather gets a little cooler and my stomach immediately expands to the size of a baby whale? Love that for me.

If you’re feeling the seasonal hanger kick in, we have news that’ll tame your feast beast (with a 24/7 coffee shop assisting your daily rampage without a second wasted on sleep).



A sweet new addition to FudoDori is opening at the end of the week! Amai Kawaii Dessert Depot is set to be the precinct’s staple Japanese dessert bar, with over 25 regularly changing offerings keeping up to date with current foodie trends. Until Instagram deems it unworthy, you can expect to see the likes of Japanese fish-shaped cake and Japanese crepes stuffed with everything from cream to whole slices of cake! Cute.

Have an assignment due? Reckon sleep is for the week? Alright now, hot shot. Brisbane’s newest coffee shop is standing out from the pack thanks to being open 24/7 and slinging old-school gaming consoles your way! Head to Hot Shot Espresso Bar from June 12 for all the java juice and Saga you can physically handle.

Pull up at Motorwagen to experience new head chef Federico Gramignani’s Middle Eastern-inspired menu. The new menu launches today, where you’ll be able to indulge in everything from chargrilled octopus with hummus, tomato, goats cheese ricotta, and an olive crumb to cumquat and vanilla panna cotta with honeycomb and chestnut. Dinner specials will be also be added on Friday nights, perfect for a post-work and pre-payday treat.
