At the end of this week, a British friend will be joining me in Brisbane for a couple of weeks, perhaps longer. As the local, I need to show of the best of this city. They've been to Brisbane before so I don't need to start at square one. I want to show the bars and restaurants that make it fun, the day trips that highlight a weekend, the cafes that jazz up your morning.
All without breaking the bank - so 5-star restaurants are off the list.
Some of places I'm thinking of showing off are:
- Tipplers' Tap
- Scratch (already been and liked it)
- Green Beacon (depending on when it opens)
- Sixes and Sevens
- The R.E. - for sentimental University Days reasons.
- Lady Lammington
- Black Star Coffee
- Saabi on Manson
- Kettle and Tin
- Harajuku Gyoza
- Pearl Cafe
- Soul Bistro
(why is this list so short? I must drink out and eat in all the time.)
- Gold Coast Hinterland
I need to flesh out my list. There are dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars opening in Brisbane that I haven't got around to visiting yet. This might be the time.
Any suggestions will be gratefully received!
