Mashed potato is the best thing to happen to humanity. Feel free to disagree, but some things are just fact. Whether it’s in a deep fried form, a creamy puree or the traditional mash, you can’t find a mash you won’t like. Given how obsessed with the humble mash we are, we’ve decide to put together a list of Brisbane’s best mashed potato dishes, because it’s the best and you’re probably craving it now, so it would be rude not to.
Bar Alto | New Farm
Bar Alto’s Pollo is a perfectly crispy skinned, yet moist chicken dish. The best bit though, is the potato puree that comes with it. It’s the smoothest, silkiest iteration of mash we’ve ever had. You’ll want to order a serve of it alone as a main, and we say do it. It’s delicious, and we definitely won’t judge you. When we say this dish inspired this entire list, you know it’s a bloody good mash.
Aria | Brisbane
The truffle mash at Aria is one of those things that you try once, and then simply must have it at least a once a week for every week thereafter. It’s the perfect amount of creamy, garlic-y and not too truffle-y while still being the perfect accompaniment to any delicious main dish.
The Alliance | Brisbane
The Alliance’s BBQ Wagyu brisket is great and all, but it’s the smoked mash that brings it to life. Full of smoky flavours, and piled onto the plate, you can’t go wrong with this dish. It’s creamy, it’s garlic-y and it’s perfectly mashed – no lumps in sight here.
Moorooka Bowls Club | Moorooka
Good food can often be found in the most unlikely of places, and the Moorooka Bowls Club is no exception. With a reserved menu focusing mainly on carbs, fried stuff and beer, there’s no other place we’d trust to put on an epic mash. Keep an eye out for their daily specials, because they tend to showcase the buttery, garlic-y stuff to its best ability. If you’re looking for a traditional mash that tastes just like your Nan’s, this is it.
Cha Cha Char | Brisbane
Being a steak restaurant, you’d think that Cha Cha Char would have the perfect mash down pat. And they do. It’s creamy, it’s rich and it’s oh so buttery. With thyme scented olive oil and the smoothness of silk, this one’s next level luxe. As someone who often craves a hefty serving of mashed potato, this offering always seems to hit the spot for me.
