When it comes to fine food, initial thoughts might draw you towards Sydney or Melbourne, but according to Good Food, Brisbane is a city offering a spectacular range of gourmet treasures.
Self-confessed foodie Natascha Mirosch recently shared her top 50 things for food lovers to do in Brisbane. The list included:
Tippler's Tap: For a night of '80s rock, beer on tap and chicken wings, head to Newstead's beer bar.
Monty's Chocolates: On a cold day in Paddington, nothing beats a smooth and creamy European hot chocolate from this deliciously wicked chocolate importer.
Esquire: Brisbane has just one three hat restaurant, but one is all you need when it's Esquire. Sit down to a truly special degustation lunch and see why food reviewers call this the best restaurant in Brisbane.
Public: Recently voted "Best New Restaurant" and awarded a one chef hat by Queensland's Good Food Guide, Public is the perfect place to try some memorable food and drink, including its insect-inspired cocktails!
Paladar Fumior Salon: Smoke a Cuban cigar while sipping on an Espresso at this unique South Brisbane cigar bar and cafe.
Gerard's Bistro: For a night out with friends, you can't go past a Middle Eastern-inspired share plate at the fashionable Fortitude Valley eatery.
