Everyone’s new Friday night plans: Wine (or beer) in hand? Check. Crew live on Houseparty? Check. Bangin’ playlist turned up? Check. Epic charcuterie plate in front of you? No? Well why not?
Albion’s Vaquero, easily one of the tastiest spots for charcuterie, tapas and all things Spanish feasting in all of Brisbane, has gone takeaway, dishing up their delicious feeds for you to take home and enjoy. So you don’t need to settle for supermarket ham and roasted peppers from a jar, you can just order up a spread from the team at Vaquero, and even throw in a bottle of red if you don’t feel like making two stops.
On their new takeaway menu, you’ll find omnivore platters like the handmade charcuterie with mushroom pate, pickles and sourdough, and the braised goat with corn chips, mole, yoghurt, Spanish chilli and avocado. Add a side of Josper roasted piquillo peppers with almond puree and you’ve got yourself the ideal self-isolation party for one.
Not isolating alone? Then their family feast, which serves four to five, has your name all over it. For $80, you’ll get an epic spread including charcuterie, local pork with apple puree and roast carrot, braised goat with corn chips, wood-fired broccoli, fried potatoes, peanut butter custard with strawberry jam and salted peanut brittle, and carrot and walnut cake to finish. So much better than that batch of spaghetti bolognaise you were planning on whipping up.
You can check out the full menu and order on their website, or you can also just drop in to the deli and choose from their charcuterie range—BYO board for extra quarantine points.
