From hidden restaurant gems to the new menus you need to try, this month’s Fork Talk is worth savouring.
FINE KETTLE OF FISH
Fish Lane Festival is set to return on Saturday, May 13 for another full day and night of celebration in South Brisbane’s most iconic laneway.
Now extending all the way to West End, the 2017 foodie festival line-up includes a number of local favourites and fresh newcomers, such as Naïm on Melbourne, Five Sisters Café and Bar, and Julius Pizzeria.
All your sweet fantasies will come true with decadent house-made s’mores from 31 Degrees, and the unveiling of a one-of-kind Gelato Messina creation for the festival.
FROM POLE TO BOWL
The recent Suki launch brought the hottest new foodie trends to South Bank’s bustling dining precinct: poké bowls and sushi burritos.
Simply pick your protein, base, sauce and fillings, and get set for a culinary sensation that’s fresh, fast and made to order.
THE SWEETEST THING
From brittles to caramel, sherbet to honeycomb, New Farm Confectionery offers sweets to satisfy everybody’s tastebuds.
Creations produced by the sweet haven are stocked in more than 20 stores across Queensland, and the grown-up lolly shop is now partnering with UberEats to bring their dream-worthy treats direct to your doorstep.
Eat Street Northshore now occupies the last remaining piece of Brisbane’s shipping history on the historic Hamilton Maritime #2 Wharf. Priceless views accompany the 180 dining and entertaining shipping containers. With more than 70 food vendors creating delicious dishes from all over the world, Eat Street is designed to give visitors an endless adventure.
TO THE PUB
With the menu at The Montague Hotel being based around home-style comfort food, the newly-opened venue is set to become West End’s favourite local hang.
The Monty, as the pub has been aptly nicknamed, boasts Brewery Fresh Cooper Beer Tanks and serves more than 17 premium and craft beers on tap. As well as buffalo wings and haloumi fries, the food menu caters to the health-conscious crowd with a superfood menu specifically designed by a nutritionist.
WHY NOT WINGS?
The genius minds behind Byblos and Blackbird Bar & Grill have brought the American dream to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre’s Station Road precinct with Lord of the Wings. The sports bar and family dinner destination offers wings for every spice preference, as well as alcoholic slushies and Corona-ritas. Yum!
FOR THE LOVE OF GNOCCHI
Offering the same spectacular menu as its Paddington sibling, Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers James Street is treating the inner-north to mouth-watering dishes seven nights a week. The carb haven’s signature dish of gnocchi with wild mushroom and truffle sauce cannot be missed.
BOOGIE WOOGIE BAGEL BOY
New York is often slated as being home to the world’s best bagels. Thankfully, there’s finally an answer right here in Brisbane. Located in West End, NYC Bagel Deli produces doughy goodness, with every possible bagel combination imaginable. 12-hour pulled pork bagel? Sure. Rainbow bagel? Absolutely.
LONELY FOR YOU ONLY
Cheddar and jalapeño waffle with creamed corn, fried chicken nuggets and maple drizzle? Holy yes! Spring Hill’s new foodie favourite is the latest project from Mal Gill and Bec Saul (formerly of Lady Marmalade and the Milk Factory). Lonely Boy serves up mouth-watering breakfast and lunch six days a week.
