So you know how last week we told you about Australia’s coolest new garden party slash festival, Royal Croquet Club, hitting South Bank in November? This week, we’re here to make it even better by letting you know that we’ve got the scoop on the food stalls—and they are epic.
The 17-day wonderland (kicking off 6 November) will take over the Cultural Forecourt, transforming it into an immersive riverside playground full of cultural attractions, bars, food, visual displays and art installations. Oh and croquet, of course!
Because food—and Brisbane’s best—is close to our hearts, we’ve teamed up with the cool-cats at Royal Croquet Club to source the BEST Brisbane restaurants for your noshing pleasure at this inaugural event.
If we don’t say so ourselves, the line-up is banging, natch! (Warning: You’ll be hungry after reading…)
- Authentic—and in our humble opinion, the best—gelateria spot in Brisbane, La Macelleria will be launching their new 3-wheeled gelato cart (um, yes!) especially for Royal Croquet Club! They’ll be rotating exclusive customer flavours, made specifically for the event, that no one has tasted before!
- Steamed bun-loving newbies, Bao Down Now will be dishing up a delicious assortment of baos including their signature chicken karaage.
- CBD burger joint Miss Kay's will be dishing up full-size burgers, and there are rumours of a possible donut burger… Squee!
- Mexicano authentico SIN VIDA are all about the tacos, quesadillas, and deep-fried pork crackling—the perfect festival food.
- Mighty Mighty are planning a meat feast; a brisket carving station and their can’t-get-enough pulled meats!
- Interstaters Street ADL are road-tripping up from Adelaide specially for this event. They’ll be doing their signature Aussie street food, and their famous crocodile hotdog!
- Ducking delicious, The Defiant Duck, who have just opened are bringing the tasty American fare, so you know it's going to be good!
Sounds killer, right? Yep, we knew you’d be stoked.
Aside from the food (is there anything else?), there’s also going to be tunes on the daily from interstate and international artists, the RCC Members Champagne Bar, Pimms Garden, roving street performers four croquet pitches and plenty of chillaxing space. Summer, come at us.
