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.
While hops scotch and beans may sounds like some strange mix of a child’s game and a bedtime story, don’t be fooled into thinking you’ll improve your coordination or score magic beans at this Paddington bar and cafe’. Hops scotch and beans is a cafe’, bar and kitchen in Brisbane’s Paddington up on Petrie Terrace.
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.
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.
