We all love to get stuck in exploring our gorgeous city, revelling in the blissful Brisbane weather and generally being a bit smug (#brislyfe), but, if it we’re even the slightest bit hungry, life’s just not enjoyable. Call us dramatic, but food is everything.
So, instead of giving you the best things to do this week in Brisbane, we thought, ‘hey, you guys would probably much prefer to plan your social lives around your eating habits’. So that’s exactly what we’ve done.
Here are the 5 must-eat dishes you have to devour this week. Hunt them down and gobble them up, you greedy go-getters.
Tapi’s Unicorn Shake
Having a rough Monday? Tapi has you covered! Nothing will cure Mondayitis woes like a pastel, fairy floss laden, bubblegum flavoured cup of sweet sugary goodness from Brisbane’s newest bubble tea café. Topped with whipped cream, popping candy, and unicorn magic (I assume) this drink is a must have to start your week.
4Fingers Signature Drumsticks
Iconic Singaporean fried chicken joint, 4Fingers joint has finally made its way down under, and what better way to make a work week more bearable than a bucket of crispy fried chicken? Err, not much, tbh.
Charboy’s Scorcher Burger
Yeah, we’re totally not over our burger obsession. If anything, Charboys has only made our cravings worse such is their tremendously fluffy brioche bun and decadent fillings. Whether you need to toss your Charboys V plates or you’re already a regular, make sure you order the Scorcher: double patty, bacon, cheese hash brown and jalapeños. We’re not drooling, you are!
Banoi’s Imperial Spring Rolls
We’ve been waiting a looong time for this Melbourne institution to open its doors in Brisbane; but, boy, was Banoi worth the wait. Apart from their infamous banh mi rolls, you really ought to get stuck in to a serving of their imperial spring rolls. Stuffed full of crab and prawn meat, these crunchy morsels will soon become a regular on your dine-out hit list.
King Tea’s Crispy Pork Belly
A lot of fabulous new openings have graced Brisbane’s streets these past few month, but King Tea really takes the cake. A gorgeous little spot serving up traditional taps dishes like nobody’s business, is all well and good you may say, but until you’ve tried King Tea’s crispy pork belly, you haven’t lived. Bonus points for pairing your pork with some top shelf Spanish plonk…
