The world may never know another indulgence as naughty and pure as the sheer blessing that is deep-fried food. Who do we thank for this marvellous method? Which certifiable genius was it that decided one teaspoon in the pan wasn’t enough? Whoever it was, their legacy lives on in the gleaming, gnarly morsels lighting up the faces of diners all across Brisbane.

Your inner clean-eating votary may implore you to opt for a salad, but you’ve been doing that all year and gosh darn if you aren’t overdue to cut a little loose. The golden crunch of deep-fried anything is as titillating as it is wicked so go on, be a devil. You know you want to…
