Pay a visit to a new resident on Racecourse Road and you’ll find those four big neon words perched outside one fantastic new Italian establishment. Brisbane meet Prego Pizzeria! Hamilton’s new star pizza haven. It doesn’t matter if you know zero Italian outside the three basics (ciao, grazie and spaghetti), in Italy the word Prego is the buzzword for good news. Example. You’re in a restaurant. A rowdy Prego! means this delicious three cheese gnocchi is YOURS! In a gelateria? It means one pistachio gelato coming right up! So what does it mean in Brisbane?
HOT OFF THE PRESS: A food truck gold mine has permanently descended on our darling Brisbane Showgrounds. From Wednesday through to Sunday, Brisbane foodies will find a mountain of street eats at the Dairy Hall and Sugar Building in our very own Bowen Hills. Repurposed to preserve the character and heritage of the building, the Welcome to Bowen Hills venue is licenced to hold a truck-full of hungry people (up to 1000) and will feature three to five continually rotating vendors to choose from daily. Just recently, it was announced that food truck royalty King of Wings has signed on for six weeks. How fab! Think names like Mr Burger, Cheeselane, Flavours of Eataly, Bruce the Foodtruck, I Heart Calamari, Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers + more.
