With our current penchant for clean lines and minimalist design sometimes it bears reminding that less isn’t always more. The word is in: more is more and an all-you-can-eat repast is the way to go.
But where, how and what do we gorge on? Going all-you-can-eat on the Brisbane dining scene will take you everywhere from Mexican mouthfuls to the Korean coal pits and even a Brazilian bacchanalia.
If you like the cut of that jib, you’ll love these incredible opportunities to dig in around Brisbane. Bib up.
