Teppanyaki Lovers

Teppanyaki Lovers
Shop 7, The Myer Centre, Brisbane CBD

It's astounding that I practically lived in the city for 3+ years doing uni and never ate at this place. I recall they refurbished at one point and came up with the current cartoony shop front and food that wasn't just teppanyaki-based.

Byron and I were in town last weekend. We arrived absolutely famished some time in the afternoon. It was pouring too. We had planned to go to Ajisen on George Street but with the increase in hunger and rainfall, we quickly changed our plans to somewhere closer.

After fleeing to the Myer Centre for shelter, we spotted Teppanyaki Lovers and thought BAM: fast food Japanese. How perfecto.

Lure on Latrobe for Breakfast

No comments:
Lure on Latrobe
24 Latrobe Tce, Paddington

After a wonderful, big weekend (happy birthday shout out to my dear friend Howl!), Byron and I were hung over and starved on Sunday. We woke up relatively early and picked up our stuff from a mate's house in Paddington. While we were in the area, I thought it'd be crazy to bypass the local offerings, since Paddy is considered a cafe hotspot.

Mochi recommended Lure on Latrobe ages ago but while I have a goldfish memory when it comes to almost everything, my food memory is still sharp as a tac. We did a quick Google search to locate this cafe and hopped right to it.

Beastie Burgers

Beastie Burgers
Shop 60d Little Stanley St, South Bank

As an avid fan of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo franchise, I was hell keen on the release of the Hollywood version of the first film. I love the books and thought the Swedish movies were brilliant. I was a bit skeptical as to how I could accept any new versions when the first were already so good but there was no way I was going to miss out.

Marc and I headed to South Bank for the movie and as a pre cinema lunch, we decided to stop by at Beastie Burgers because I'd never been to Beastie Burgers and at that period of my life (a couple of months ago), I was absolutely addicted to burgers (a really bad addiction to have if you're trying to diet).

Jiu Wan Ban

Jiu Wan Ban
Shop 22-23, Sunnypark Shopping Centre, Sunnybank

A Hang Zhou style restaurant opened up in Sunnypark where Soman used to be. As a keen tester of new Chinese restaurants, my grandpa actually scouted the site a few times to be among the first to try it once the restaurant opened for business.

Unfortunately for him, my parents and I beat him on that one. We walked past by chance (grocery shopping perhaps) and noticed that there were already customers inside. We lost no time in popping in ourselves to see what the go was.

Hotel Bravo - Bravo Bar b que

Bravo Bar b que

I remember going to Hotel Bravo a long, long time ago back when Monsoon was there. We were actually dining in Monsoon and my family (who arrived separately) accidentally found themselves at the Bravo bar and were sipping water and getting comfortable before they realized we were in the adjacent restaurant.

Well, Monsoon is gone now and in its place, Bravo's grill restaurant. I headed there one weekday night with my mate Marc for dinner. We took a seat at an outdoor table and started looking through the menu.

We decided to get a main and side each, plus a couple of desserts and a jug of sangria to wash it all down.

Caffe Republic, Gold Coast for Lunch

Caffe Republic on Hedges
3 Montana Rd,City of Gold Coast

After our breakfast at BlackStar, Trinh and I were thinking about going to Southbank to jump around in the pools and dispel some heat. Then we figured, why not go to the Gold Coast?

Prepped for adventure, we drove down a bit past Surfer's Paradise and had the most fabulous time sunning and swimming and gossiping.
