100 GO-TO eats in Brisbane based on your #FOODMOOD

posted by Karlicca Culalic January 31, 2018 0 comments

Food mood, it’s real. You know when you say, “I’ll eat anything” but low-key, c’mon you won’t be eating just anything. Somewhere deep in your subconscious resides a small innately stubborn part of you, triggered at any mention of food and where it will be consumed. To paint the picture, I am 70% likely to be in the car when this happens. Dropping dead fuel, making suggestions with my shotgun rider, none of which are satisfactory to my secretly set criteria, and where do I end up? Paying $10 for a plate of carbs I’ve eaten three times this week. So to do us all a solid we’ve curated some of Brisbane’s best food faves to satisfy some of the most common #FOODMOODS. Best use? When you’re driving around on the verge of a first-world mental break-down. Pull over. We got you.

Eating For #freshtodeath Skin

posted by Stephanie Dee April 12, 2016 0 comments

Glowing skin is a #lyfegoal for most of us young ladies getting about town.  And while having a good skin routine is important in keeping our skin free from outbreaks, enjoying a healthy diet is second-to-none in getting that glowing skin. What some of us tend to forget is that eating for #freshtodeath skin is just as important as a good cleansing routine if not more important.  Given that new skin cells are constantly being replaced (out with the old and in with the new, every month!) –  having a healthy diet free from toxins is no surprise in fuelling healthy cell renewal.  With only 8% of Australian adults meeting the recommended 5 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit a day (as per Australia’s Health, 2014), more often than not you’ll be missing out on the key nutrients that important for good health, particularly for healthy skin renewal.

Eat: The Mercure Brisbane

posted by Joanna Fraser June 16, 2015 0 comments

I don’t know about you but there is something just a little fancy about dining in a hotel. It’s the kind of fancy that makes you want to peel off those skinny jeans and put on a pretty dress. Perhaps you might even order a cocktail or a glass of wine instead of just sipping on the free tap water or the standard lemon, lime and bitters.

Featuring beautiful river views, a locally sourced menu and sexy, ambient lighting, the restaurant and bar at the Mercure Brisbane achieves that perfect level of fancy.

With the kind of menu that makes you ask the waiter to come back in five minutes because you can’t possibly decide what to have (slow cooked lamb shank!? Chinese braised pork belly?- help!), the Mercure Brisbane doesn’t fuss around with tiny portion sizes or pretentious ingredients. Instead it offers wholesome food that celebrates Australia’s love of fresh seafood, tenderly cooked meat and the innovative use of fruits and vegetables.

Perfect for a weekend date night or a wholesome after work dinner, the Mercure Brisbane brings sophisticated without prestige, making it an enjoyable affair for young and old alike. So next time you’re reaching towards that little black dress, why not head to the Mercure?

Here’s just some of the colourful array of food you can expect!

Winter Wednesday’s At Station Road Dining

posted by Madi West June 12, 2015 0 comments

Forget dining in at home this winter and say hello to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre’s new “Winter Wednesday” dining offers at the Station Road dining precinct.

This month-long mid-week dining offer includes exclusive specials each Wednesday throughout June at the precinct’s leading restaurants to offer diners a delicious range of cuisine and culture at a fraction of the price.

We were lucky enough to be invited to try one of the “Winter Wednesday” offers and was delighted to stop by Ole Fuego this week to try their sunset tapas and sangria deal. The offer includes the choice of three tapas dishes from the menu’s large selection and a jug of sangria. It’s a deal for 2, so grab your lover or a mate and enjoy a tapas feast for $55.

So what did we pick? The Jug Blanco Sangria, which was a white wine, peach, liqueur and apple juice concoction was the sangria of choice. Hands down it was the best Sangira I have ever tasted – not too strong but with a subtle kick of punchy flavour. For our selection of tapas, the Croquetas, Choriza and Morcilla and Patatas Bravas (spiced potato with red pepper sauce), all of which were as deliciously tasty, packed with flavour and full of authenticity as they sound.

“Winter Wednesdays” at Station Road offers are:

Breaky share plates at Riverbar and Kitchen

posted by Danielle Lewis March 26, 2015 0 comments

Well leave it to the Riverbar and Kitchen to take a meal as awesome as breakfast and make it even more amazing. Share plates people. Share plates. What I love about tapas for dinner is it’s like ordering one of everything off the menu and being able to taste it all. And now that experience can be had at breakfast time as well! With amazing new menu items like granola pots, bacon and egg sliders and smoked salmon bruschetta you’ll want to order one of everything as well!

Their new breakfast menu was put to the ultimate test this morning as over 20 Brisbane food bloggers gave it a whirl. We were in amazing company alongside blogger heavyweights like Gourmand & Gourmet, Bianca Eats, Hello Brisbane Noms, BNECafesDelicious Dishes and little grey box.

If you followed along on Instagram, you would have seen they all gave it the ultimate tick of approval!

Check out the Riverbar and Kitchen’s new menus and shared menus online. And go hungry!

From Crop to Cup : The Di Bella Experience

posted by Georgia Terry February 6, 2015 0 comments

As you take the first sip of your morning latte I bet you didn’t realise the beans you’re drinking are meticulously sorted, separating the cream of the coffee crop from the screws, bolts and bullets – literally. Or did you think that the coffee you’re swilling was sourced from exotic places around the world? There’s a lot of work that goes into one humble (yet delicious) cup of Java. And thanks to Di Bella Coffee I now know a bit more.

As a self-confessed caffeine addict I was tha-rilled to join Brisbane’s best food bloggers to get a peek at the inner workings of the Di Bella Coffee Warehouse. Teaming up with Eat Brisbane and paleo pundits The Primal Pantry, this local coffee roaster put on an event that was more than a pleasure to attend. Golden shots of liquid goodness (coffee), a delicious two course paleo meal – including Maple Glazed Lamb (YUM!) – it was all Brisbane’s insta-snap-happy foodies could’ve wished for.

The stellar part of the night was seeing Di Bella’s “Crop to Cup” ethos play out. From the traditional espresso methods to the alternative brewing techniques – like the Chemex filter brew (which was super cool!), each cup I tried was made expertly with a delicious coffee blend.

A fine cup of Joe and fabulous food – who could ask for a better way to spend a Wednesday night.

Jamie’s Italian: A recipe for success!

Located in the historic Rowes Arcade in Edward Street is Brisbane’s newest hotspot for all Italian lovers, Jamie’s Italian.

Celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, is known worldwide for serving up simple, fresh and classic dishes in his restaurants, television shows and cookbooks – and there are no exceptions here in his Brisbane restaurant.

Caution: the following sequence may cause unexpected drooling, hunger pains or tummy rumbles.

For entrée, the antipasto or seafood “planks” are ones to try. They are beautifully served on long wooden platters in true Jamie style, resting atop of San Marzano tomato tins. The meat plank is piled high with Italian prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella and a crunchy veg salad to cleanse the palate; the seafood option is stacked with cured and crispy fish, Italian cheese, pickles and mackerel pate.

For the mains, a selection of hearty meals are on offer. Squid ink risotto, fillet steak with polenta chips, sausage parpadelle and Jool’s (Jamie’s wife) favourite tuna fusilli are just a few of the selections. There are also a number of lighter vegetarian options in the pasta and entrée selections for all you veggie lovers out there.

Any pizza I hear you ask? Not at this Italian place! It seems Jamie has decided to stick to what he knows best. As a pizza lover I can safely say this did not dampen my experience on the night – in fact I didn’t even notice the lack of pizza until someone asked me about it the next day.

All the delicious food aside, another highlight is the impeccable staff. They are full of enthusiasm and were more than happy to explain the ingredients, history and stories behind each dish. They all seem very proud to work under Jamie Oliver but I am sure he is just as proud to have them.

All in all, it seems Jamie has served up another success story here in the Brisbane store. It is definitely one to put on the ‘to do’ list. Buon appetito!

Open for lunch and dinner. Bookings are required for groups larger than seven.

Riverbar & Kitchen review!

posted by Danielle Lewis September 20, 2014 0 comments

I am not typically a cocktail drinker. So when Riverbar & Kitchen invited me along to sample their tapas and cocktail menu, I really didn’t know what to expect. Not one to miss an opportunity, I got there and dove headfirst into a Marshmallow Colada! Sailor Jerry, toasted marshmallow, fresh lemon, pineapple juice, coconut …. what a drink! I don’t know if it was the Sailor Jerry talking, but suddenly the cares of the week faded away and I was relaxed, enjoying the fabulous view of the Brisbane River and soaking up the lively atmosphere.

Round two, I ordered a Crimson Blossom.  Belvedere citrus, raspberry, fresh lemon, grapefruit juice, passionfruit. Excuse me, I think someone drank my drink, I giggled as my stunned partner wondered how I guzzled it down so fast!

For dinner we enjoyed the Crispy Chicken Wings with chipotle ‘slaw; Salami pizza and Lamb Kofta. All a perfect size to share amongst friends and delicious to boot.

Round three, and I could no longer remember what cocktail I ordered… but it looked fancy and tasted great!

Riverbar & Kitchen is open from 7am – late 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, after-work drinks and afternoon drinks on the weekend; and they officially have my vote for cocktails, tapas and an amazing view.

Why not take advantage of the location and book a table for Riverfire on Saturday 27 September? On the night they’ll have live music and there’ll be River Gin Fizz cocktail jugs for  ladies and buckets of four local bottled craft beers for the gents at just $25 each.
