Friday night @ The Gabba

Rymill sparkling Chard Pinot & Te Whare Ra Sauv blanc to kick start the night !!

We weren't technically at The Gabba but rather near it...We decided on dinner at The Crosstown Eating House as it has indeed been a very long time since our last visit. On our first visit, Crosstown hasn't had the Uptown lounge bar yet on the 2nd floor and so we were excited to see what the new bar may be like....Things have changed a get your menus, cutlery, salt & pepper etc. on the table all ready for you.

We had such a pleasant mid-sunday afternoon yesterday.....
There is this tranquility being in Hawthorne and with the expansive park nearby, it felt wonderful to have a stroll around after our satisfying meal at Pompidou!

Nest Cafe

This post was meant to be about 3 weeks back but it was in someway forgotten being caught up with other posts. Nest Cafe is part of a block of units and located down a very quiet lane away from heavy traffic. We were there on a weekday lunch and their main patrons were business people from around the area. It was past 2pm but there were many who came in for takeaways.

Hellenic House

We were quite surprised upon entering the Hellenic House to see a vast hall where the greek community gather for conversations and their games of chest...or some other game perhaps... We suppose this is the original Greek Club? The interior is rather dim so we decided to sit outdoors right at a far end, after placing our orders at the counter.

Milk Ashgrove

This is our second visit to Milk and the first was at their Newmarket outlet which is much smaller in terms of seating capacity. And the reason for why we enjoy Milk, is for their signature Milkshakes that are truly frothy and comes in a tall metal cup.

La Vosh Patisserie

Miss food hunter was craving bagels and decided to visit La Vosh as was recommended on another food blog. Can't say that we are good judges of bagels as Mr food hunter hadn't had one before and Miss food hunter's closest bagel binge in Singapore was either frozen or the Blueberry ones from Starbucks. This was several years back too!

Aria Brisbane

Complimentary Amuse bouche Mushroom Veloute
We had a small gathering of 4 gd'ole friends at Aria for lunch today and boy was it a delightful experience! It is a weekday and we must say that Aria is doing very well, service was busy and we suppose the Lunch Course Specials are indeed attractive deals!

The Ponycat Cafe

What a great addition to the cafe/ restaurant scene along Brunswick street! Au Cirque is probably the only prominent breakfast brunch place along this stretch and we can see that the Ponycat is fast becoming a strong contender! We arrrived slightly before 12noon on a windy saturday and service was busy busy but thankfully, a friendly waitress came to us and told us we could have the high table indoor soon as she cleared it and that she'd take our orders.

Day out @ GC & Burleigh Brew Co.

We planned for a weekend out at Gold Coast as we booked in for a tour at the Burleigh Brewery. We revisited one of our favourite Japanese restaurant- Yuuga at Surfer's for an early lunch before the tour. We like Yuuga for the variety in their bento lunch sets, their reasonable prices, friendly service, restaurant atmosphere and but of course, quality of food.

Mr and Miss food hunter have been to Vapiano a long long time ago when it first opened in brissie.  We left quite happy at the time but havent been back in a while.

June Markets & Festivals

Le Bon Choix & their delectable pastries

We have been having fun-filled weekends since three weeks back as there's always something to look forward to....There was the Zilmere Cultural Festival, Ascot Street Party in conjunction with the Eagle Farm Markets and recently, Home Festival held next door to the Pineapple Hotel.  

Soul Bistro

We would have liked to have taken at least a shot of this very simple eatery nestled at a corner of Milton Centro, but lunch was a little bit of a rush as we had an appointment to make after. The first time we tasted Chef Terry Leung's creations was way back in June 2006/7 as there was a X'mas promo on at their food & Soul restaurant at Auchenflower. We have been wanting to try his new venture- Soul Bistro for some time now and finally we've made it here....
