The last time I went to Brisbane, William and I spent one day there and it was pouring all day long so we saw two movies back to back and not much of Brisbane. This time however, I had two whole days to spend in Brisbane so I made the most of it. I thought I would share all the delicious food that I ate in Brisbane as I didn’t really do much else other than wine and dine.
Breakfast – Coco Bliss
I had an acai bowl and avocado bruschetta. The food was delish however there was more onion on the bruschetta than there was tomato which wasn’t too great. After I picked most of the onion off, it was perfect.
Lunch – Stokehouse Q
Stokehouse Q in Southbank was one of the most pleasant fine dining experiences I have had. I ordered off the bar menu and had the sweetcorn risotto with basil and chili oil, and chips with chili salt accompanied by an old fashioned. The risotto sounded a little too adventurous for my palette however it was heavenly and the chips with chili salt were perfect dipped in the risotto. I could not recommend this place enough for a light lunch and a few cocktails by the river.
Dinner – Spaghetti House Trattoria
Spaghetti House Trattoria has been on my list of places to dine at for a few months now and it could not have been in a more perfect location. It was across the road from the hotel (I stayed at the Rydges, Southbank) and they had the cutest pink velvet bar stools which I unfortunately didn’t get a picture of. I ordered the bruschetta to start and aglio e olio for my main which was good however, not the best. I am very picky when it comes to aglio e olio because it is my favourite pasta dish so it was good however I have had better.
Cocktails – Cobbler
After dinner, I headed over to Cobbler for an old fashioned and ended up having a few more drinks than intended. The vibe is very old school and they have lots of little lounge areas where you can sit with friends and have some privacy. They also have table service which is great until the end of the night when you’ve had one too many drinks and don’t realise it until you stand up.
That is all for part one of my Brisbane food diary, I will be posting part two on Wednesday.
