The Urban List is home to some serious cheese nuts. We’ve been known to switch a birthday cake for a wheel of brie, when ordering pizza we make like Kevin McAllister and always choose the cheesiest option, and in the eternal dessert VS cheese platter struggle, cheese always comes out on top.

And we know we’re not alone, ‘cause Brisbane is home to some epic cheese feasts: be it a cheese-stuffed burger, oozy soufflé, gooey bake camembert, crispy grilled cheese, or a well stocked cheese platter, there’s no shortage of cheese dishes to keep our dairy quota up.

Got milk? Yeah you do. Here are 50 of the best cheese dishes in Brisbane

  1. Bar Alto’s Cheese Platter: 3 Italian cheeses, with walnut toast and quince mermalata. One of Brisbane’s best cheese platters.
  2. Spring’s Four Cheese Jaffle: Cheddar, mozzarella, Swiss, and brie. 
  3. The Blue Cheese Soufflé at The Alliance Hotel
  4. Miss Kay’s Mac Daddy: an epic mac n cheese burger.
  5. Getta Burger’s Filthy Fries: smothered in cheese and topped with smoked brisket, pulled pork, grilled onions and maple bacon. So called filthy, ‘cause that’s how you’ll feel afterwards.
  6. The Bounty’s manchego fritters.
  7. Papa Jack’s Fries with cheese fondue and bacon crumbs. Double dipping’s never been more appealing.
  8. Black Pearl Epicure’s epic cheese fridge. Go to here.
  9. The Cheesy New York pretzel at NY Brew Co.
  10. Red Hook’s Deep-Fried mac and cheese squares with fries. One of the most intense cheese experiences in town.
  11. The Cheese Pleaser’s cheese hampers, ideal for picnics.
  12. The entire cheese menu at Coppa Spuntino. One of our favourite new Brisbane cheese menus.
  13. South Side Diner’s mac n’ cheese with green pea leaf spinach and goats cheese.
  14. The Cheese Menu at Customs House, served with warm walnut bread and house-made lavosh. An oldie and a goldie, the triple cream will change your life. 
  15. The ricotta gelato at La Macelleria.
  16. Bread & Meat Co.’s pulled pork, spinach, and mac n cheese on a toasted ciabatta.
  17. Roast mushrooms, tarragon crumb, and black pepper mascarpone at The Survey Co. An uptown twist on everybody’s fave dessert cheese.

  22. Standard Market Co.’s cheese pit. Dive in.
  23. Newstead Brewing Co.’s pulled pork chilli cheese fries.

  26. Tank’s manchego and sopressa croquettes.
  27. Aria’s poached rhubarb and ricotta ice cream with beetroot marshmallow.

  34. The grilled cheese at Southside Tea Room: Swiss and cheddar on white bread with Dirty Mayo dipping sauce.
  35. Super Whatnot’s pao de queijo, a Brazilian cheese bread. Ideally washed down with a beer.
  36. Chip Tease’s nacho fiesta chips, topped with salsa, cheese, sour cream, and jalapenos. Artery-clogging,
