Arguably the best wings in Brisbane. These guys have reached cult status and are followed closely by a loyal fan base- for good reason too! If the wings leave your mouth watering for more, they’ve got a range of other sides including their incredible sweet potato fries. For the ultimate night out- catch them at Green Beacon Brewing Co in Teneriffe for an ice cold beer to chase them down. Facebook | Instagram

Rolling Stone Woodfired Pizza

Quality pizza on the go! With a range of traditional and gourmet pizzas from their wood fired oven- these guys sure know how to turn it on.

They’re a much loved local on the food truck scene- find them near you soon! Facebook | Instagram | Wesbsite

The Bun Mobile

Brisbane Threads

If you’ve lived in Brisbane for a quick minute, you’ve probably heard of or seen The Bun Mobile around town. Their buns are made on ‘gua bao’ which is a traditional Taiwanese style steamed bun and their range of healthy fillings are sourced locally too. The hardest thing about visiting the Bun Mobile is choosing what to order- everything is super tasty and they’ve usually got specials to choose from too! Facebook | InstagramWebsite

Abiocco Food Truck

Brisbane Threads

These guys sure know their stuff! Their name essentially means ‘food coma’ which we consider a promise. Serving up slow cooked meat Italian sandwiches and tasty Arancini balls with their scrumptious home made sauces, you’re sure to be satisfied. Passionate about doing everything from scratch, you’re sure to enjoy a home style meal that will likely rival your nonna’s… It’s traditional, tasty Italian food, done their way. Facebook | Instagram | Website

Istanbul Eats Kebabs

Brisbane Threads

No longer should a HSP seen as a drunken, beautiful mistake. Embrace it, and chow down on one of Istanbul Eats’ yummy creations. Rumoured to be the best in town, you’ll kick yourself if you don’t give them a try… If a HSP isn’t quite your style, they’ve also got a range of kebabs, burgers and even dessert! Facebook | Instagram

How We Rolls

Brisbane Threads

If you hadn’t figured it out from their name- these guys make rolls. Darn good ones at that! Choose from 3 types of toasty brioche rolls, stuffed with smoky spiced and seasoned meats, covered in house made sauces all resting on top of fresh salads. They’ve also got open plates and a range of sides to choose from… We’re hungry just thinking about it! Facebook | Instagram | Website

Koma Sliders

Brisbane Threads

Fusion style food is the greatest- it’s like ticking two boxes with one meal! Koma Sliders are Korean/ American burgers and they are out of this world. With three main burgers on their menu, it makes it marginally easier to choose but they’re all so good you’ll have your work cut out for you. Facebook | Instagram

La Cucina Mobile

Brisbane Threads

For the guys at La Cucina, they respect the history, culture and traditions of food but are keen to challenge and adapt to 2017! They’ve done exactly that- think of a full, traditional, Italian meal from a Food Truck. Penne, Risotto, Spaghetti, Lasagne, Steaks, Burgers- you name it, they’ve got it! Facebook | Instagram

Phatboys Food Truck

Brisbane Threads

If you’re as obsessed with Portuguese food as we are in the office, you’ll be relieved to know the Phatboys has you covered and is constantly touring Brisbane. With a range of traditional rolls, they’re sure to have something to tickle your fancy. Combining local Brisbane produce with homestyle Portuguese recipes, you’ll have the best of both worlds! Their menu is constantly changing, so get in quick! Facebook | Instagram | Website

Is there anything greater than sitting with your best friend, (or you mama, grandma, godmother or anyone special) and sipping on champagne and eating scones? We think not! Scones, champagne and cakes are a perfect way to spend a few hours on the weekend.

A few weeks ago we had the privilege of eating and drinking the afternoon away at the Brisbane Marriott High Tea. Oh-so-fancy and oh-so-fabuous! Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, wedding, baby shower, birthday or just after a lovely way to thank you friend, the Brisbane Marriott’s High Tea is the perfect opportunity to feel oh-so-speical. I took my bestie along and we commenced the afternoon sipping on bubbles!

The last time I was in Italy was nearly ten years ago. While that actually seems like a lifetime ago; I feel that spending five weeks in the country makes me an expert. Ok not an ‘expert-expert’ but more like a I-have-actually-been-to-Italy-so-I-can-write-about-Italian-food expert #youfeelme? So this brings me to Prova Pizzeria.

Umami

posted by Emmy O'Neill March 30, 2017 0 comments

‘Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/), or savoury taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness).’ Thanks to George, Matt and Gary (aka those Masterchef boys) Umami is part of our food vocabulary, but I still found myself unable to describe Umami; instead just going with ‘it is Umami.’

Umami is not only the mysterious fifth taste; it is also the name of one of Brisbane’s tastiest restaurants located at the top of the China Town Mall, Fortitude Valley. Umami Bar & Asian Tapas isn’t the new kid on the China Town block but it has had a menu and venue makeover and it is fabulous.
