Brisbane food news

Brisbane is well known for its top-notch foodie scene, with new restaurants, cafes and impressive menus constantly popping up across the city. It’s almost impossible to keep up to date on it all.

To make it easier, we’ve introduced The Feed, your best place for finding Brisbane’s latest updates in the world of food and drink. So, without further ado, here’s all the food news you missed in Brisbane this week. ​

  • There’s nothing better than backing a local business and one that’s doing wonders for our planet. I Am Grounded has created an innovative way to upcycle the fruit of coffee into healthy, vegan and gluten-free snack bars. The bars include the Espresso, Tahini and Coffee Fruit bar with ingredients like organic dates, coffee fruit extract, organic tahini and organic ground colombian coffee. If this interests you, check out their Kickstarter campaign and stay tuned...

  • Pencil the 19th of March into your calendar, because Gerard’s Bar is getting a whole new menu. Executive Chef Adam Wolfers is bringing a mixture of flavours influenced through travels, his Jewish heritage and other restaurants he has worked in throughout his career to bring you a delicious range of Middle Eastern eats. The menu includes a selection of mezze such as chickpea miso hummus, wagyu basturma and aged tahini.

  • Here's another reason to head for Howard Smith Wharves—you can now grab a delicioso breakfast from 7am–11.30am at Ciao Papi. The menu pays tribute to the essentials of Italian cuisine, with items such as a mortadella, smoked mozzarella and fried egg roll with tomato relish and eggs benedictine with prosciutto di parma, baby spinach and toasted focaccia.

  • Moving on to bigger and better things, the faces behind the current Wandering Cooks pop-up have now found themselves a permanent home on Hope Street for their new meat-free Mexican restaurant. El Planta’s famous plant-based tacos will stay front and centre, with other share-style mains, sides and desserts to join the menu as well. Stay tuned for an opening day.

  • Plant-based foods seems to be the theme of The Feed this week, and Mad Mex is one of the leaders of the pack with the introduction of Meat-Free Mondays. Alongside their usual vegan options, Mad Mex has launched a new plant-based Baja BBQ Vegan Chicken to delight your taste buds. Thanking you for your contribution to the environment, Mad Mex will take $2 off your meal when you opt for any of their yummy plant-based options. 

  • Here’s another rooftop bar to add to your bucket list: Elevate Bar & Lounge will open on the 17th floor at Linton Apartments at the end of March. Just a short walk away from The Gabba, guests will be able to enjoy an array of exotic beers, wines and spirits as well as aseasonal grazing-style menu. Elevate Bar & Lounge will serve tequila-cured kingfish with jalapeno margarita granata, fried chicken karaage with wasabi mayonnaise and other delectable share plates to munch on as you admire the view. 

  • After the shock closure of The Dalgety Public House in Tenerife we were lost for words. Luckily, rumour has it they’re reopening as Dalgety 2.0 Public House. With a sign out the front of the restaurant stating they’re reopening with a new team and new direction, we’re excited to see what they have in store for us. 

  • Join PappaRich to celebrate their eighth anniversary. To mark this momentous occasion the Malysian restaurant will be offering $8 meals across two marvellous weeks, from 16 to 19 March, with a new special deal every day. From the fiery Nasi Lemak, to the crispiness of the Roti Canai, head into store to celebrate with PappaRich.
