Morbid at first glance, last meals are something we ruminate on often here at The Urban List. It’s not that we have a death wish, more that our food choices in our imagined final hours force us to play favourites in a way our day-to-day eating can never deliver.

To put this list together we it up brisbane's best restaurants, then put it to the team to tell us their 'final request' Brisbane dishes to eat before they died. The results were very fattening and pretty glorious. It's your last meal, go hard.

  1. The Survey Co's Death Row Meal changes depending on the day but take our word for it: it's as lavish as you would expect. 
  2. The half Peking duck at Spice Den
  3. Penny Coffee Co.'s eggs Penny. Because puns and because delicious!
  4. Red Hook’s unbelievably good Peking duck tacos. 
  5. The dry-aged New York strip at Walter's Steakhouse (oh, and their entire potato sides menu!).
