Being hungry is the worst. But you know what’s worse? Being hungry with an empty fridge and nothing but ‘closed’ signs shutting down your cravings. We get it. Trust us, we’ve been there. Enter: this nifty little list of where to eat when you’re hungry AF but it’s way past closing time. We present to you, Brisbane’s best late night dining spots.
The totally secret Greaser Bar holds the key to unlocking a 10/10 late night dining experience. The Greaser Burger is a delicious bite that doesn’t deserve being shunned to late night dining though, so make sure you pop by in the sobering light of day, too because you’ll want seconds of this one. Trust us. Obviously, you have to order to the fried chicken too—it will change your life.
The QA is home to a secret Brisbane supper club, FYI. And yes, they’re open late night! This isn’t your regular late night fare either. No way! You’ll find truffled fries, cheese boards, bao, seared tuna… you get the gist. It’s late night dining, but fancy. We’re guessing you feel pretty silly for never having heard of Farrier yet.
Tucked away in a sneaky laneway in the CBD, Red Hook answer all our late night hunger pangs. The resolution breaker is enough to sabotage your diet come 1am cries of ‘I’m hungggrryyy’: double beef, bacon, tomato, cheese, ketchup and special sauce. Oh boy. But, we saved the best for last–there’s a cheese burger martini on the menu!
If you don’t crave Pho late at night you’re either a) lying or b) not a real person. Luke Nguyen is here to save the day though (as per), with Fat Noodle. Order a big bowl of steaming hot pho and let all your troubles float away!
Pair your late night binge feed with a stiff drink; here's how to make a perfect espresso at home.
