Brisbane by Night

It may only be because I’ve lived here for so long that I feel like this, but one of the things that I am constantly thankful for in Brisbane is how safe it is to walk around at night. Thank god too, because this city sure is beautiful at night! This is just some snaps from a little stroll I took with my fellow Potterhead Amy a couple of weeks back.

A Shoukingly Good Breakfast

Brisbane foodies have been losing their mind over Paddington’s Shouk Cafe’ recently, so of course when I finally got a day off I headed straight over to check it out! Going in with such high expectations is always a risky move, but when those expectations get met, it’s a really good time.

Brisbane’s Worst Vegetarian Restaurant

While I like to think I am fairly open-minded, being vegetarian is something that is definitely not for me; mostly because there are few foods I enjoy more then a big, juicy steak.

Brisbane’s Taste of Italy

While Italy remains close to a 25 hour flight from Brisbane, our love of Italian food is as strong as if they were next door, and that means competition is fierce to find the best Italian in our great city. Last night though, I was fortunate enough to head out to one of Brisbane’s best destinations for Italian cuisine.

Dinner Under the Cherry Blossoms

Being so close to Asia, Australia is blessed with a lot of different options when it comes to Asian cuisine, and if you’re hunting for Asian food, you’ll rarely be disappointed.  In saying that, things can go well, or they can go brilliantly. Fortunately for me, last night when I ventured out for Japanese, which is not something I normally go for, we scored option number two.

It’s Always Summer in Kangaroo Point

Opening in May of 2014, Summer House in Kangaroo Point is the love child venue of three kiwi lads, and despite my love of paying out our cousins from across the way, these gentlemen in particular cannot be praised highly enough for this venue.

The Not-so-Dicky Dicky Beach

While Schoolies week is busy turning the Gold Coast into an drunken underage orgy, the weather in Brisbane is most definitely necessitating a trip to the beach. Fortunately enough, residents of Brisbane have plenty of options. This trip, we took the option of the very underrated Dicky beach up on the Sunshine Coast, named after the shipwreck adorning the sand near the flags.
