Here are the best new foodie spots to add to your must-try list (we’ve all got one)!
King Street Precinct | Bowen Hills
Brisbane’s newest food precinct is gearing up to celebrate its first Ekka! Whether you feel like a cheeky burger from Super Combo, finger lickin’ Hello Chicken or a Vietnamese feast from Banoi, present your Ekka ticket to receive a discount at selected stores. Check out our guide for more details!
The Racing Café | Hendra
You won’t have to worry about not getting your caffeine fix over the Ekka either with The Racing Café serving $2 coffee between 7am-9am on August 12th. Stop by, fuel up and then race to the showgrounds!
The Fox Hotel | South Brisbane
Melbourne pizza institutions Lucky Coq and Bimbo Deluxe are joining forces with The Fox Hotel to bring you their $4 pizzas from Wednesday 9th August. With seventeen fresh new pizzas on the menu, the hardest part of your week will be deciding which to get! We can’t wait to get our hands on the Angello with lamb mince, pine nuts, sultanas and rocket. Can never decide between nachos or pizza? Por que no los dos? Go for the Poncho, a Mexican inspired mouth fiesta with tomato’s, beans, sour cream and corn chips. Ole!
Darling & Co | Paddington
It’s already the darling of Paddington, but with its new trans-seasonal menu you’ll have even more reason to visit Darling & Co. The team have created a menu that suits Queensland’s unpredictable weather with dishes that are perfect for warming you up, like the 16-hour Cape Grim short rib with polenta and roast vegetables. Don’t let a hot August day bug you, get stuck into the Moreton Bay Bug linguine with chili, basil and lemon.
Sake | CBD
Leave the leftovers at home this morning and power lunch with style at Sake. Available between 12-3pm, experience the $49 express Bento Box with a selection of some of Sake’s best, including popcorn shrimp, ginger garlic chicken and grilled eggplant. Enjoy the river view and finish up with green tea ice-cream, but book in fast- it’s only available for a limited time.
Effervescence Festival | Grandchester
Epic champagne festival Effervescence is bubbling into its second year with more than 25 champagnes houses on show at Spices Hidden Vale. Add great food, live music and coach transfers and your weekend is sorted.
Hervey Bay Seafood Festival | Hervey Bay
Ocean vibes descend on Hervey Bay this Sunday for the Seafood Festival. With demonstrations from Chef Andrew Mirosch, plus loads of food stands serving the freshest seafood around it’s a day out for the whole family.
