Entree number 1 – Chilli coriander bread with thai peanut jam
Cocktails – The Blue Jeans, Honey Basil Martini and Vanilla fig sour

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of attending the second Eat Brisbane (@eatbrisbane) Instameet event with a bunch of local foodies at Chow House on James Street, Fortitude Valley.

It was Thursday curry night, so each dish was inspired by the street stalls of exotic world destinations, it was a mouth-watering experience.

The four curries were dished up with perfect presentation and aromas like nothing else. One tip before I make you drool on your screen – the curries are a little spicy, so if you’re like me and like your curry very, very mild, add some cucumber, yoghurt and mint raita or the sweet fruit chutney – it makes the world of difference, and is quite delicious. For those who like a kick to their curry, you will be very impressed!

The curries were…

Green Prawn Curry with local ocean prawns, thai eggplant, seasonal vegetables, spinach, lime and thai basil

North African inspired beef, chickpea and sweet potato curry served with almond and apricot flat bread

Slow braised England lamb rending curry with toasted coconut, pickled onion

Vegetable jungle curry with seasonal vegetables, krachai, water chestnut and kaffir lime leaf

There was also house baked chilli coriander bread with thai peanut jame, peking duck with home made shallot pancake served with cucumber and hoisin and the house special spicy thai pork street sausage with tomato and chilli relish.

And it’s not just the food that is divine, the serve is top-notch and I’d definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of a hot (pun intended) new dining experience!

Mouth watering? Curries are regularly available at Chow House and are the perfect winter warmers, so stop in for curry night and send your tastebuds to exotic places!
