It’s a bit of an understatement to say we’ve eaten a lot of food around Brisbane (if we actually sat down and calculated it we imagine the figures would be nothing short of dumbfounding), so if we say that something is nek level good, we mean it.
Tucked away in Spring Hill’s boutique The New Inchcolm Hotel & Suites, Thomson’s Reserve is dishing up food that is not only delicious, but beautiful enough to make you low key jealous of your dinner. Recently named amongst one of the top 500 restaurants in Australia, it’s unsurprising that it’s considered one of the best culinary experiences Brisbane has to offer.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Thomson’s Reserve is ready and raring to blow your mind any time of day. Offering both a la carte and the option of a five or eight course tasting menu, the food is described as progressive Australian cuisine, utilising premium local produce to create wonderfully unique dishes.
The menu is anything but boring. The tasting menu features dishes such as beef with pumpkin, mushroom, miveok (a type of seaweed, we checked) and marigold and for dessert, how does a combination of rosemary, honey, chocolate and sherbet sound? Yes, exactly, like happiness. With the tasting menu you can opt to have a matching beverage with each course (as if they even need to ask), just to tantalise your taste buds even further.
The a la carte menu is equally as impressive, whether you’re in the mood for some spanner crab with a crème fraiche, sorrel, grapefruit and walnuts or a smoked duck breast with prune, edamame, turnip and wakame, the menu is sure to have you salivating before the waiter takes your drink order.
So next time you’re in the mood for something incredibly delicious, inventive and gorgeous, make sure you try Thomson’s Reserve. Another bonus is that if you’ve eaten yourself into a food coma, you can just spend the night in the hotel. Problem solved.
