6101 Tapas & Meze - 3 Jun 2015

6101 Tapas & Meze offers up a variety of Turkish inspired tapas dishes with larger dishes also available. The service is excellent and the husband and wife team make you feel welcome. I really enjoyed the cigars which offered a lovely gooey cheese filling encased by the filo like pastry. The beef croquettes were too chunky and lacked seasoning and flavour. The beef chorizo carried less intensity than the Spanish counterpart but was delicious with the Turkish bread. The garlic prawns were tasty with a lovely sumac salad, but the pork belly was absolutely amazing! Crunchy crackling, cut like butter pork flesh, so tasty and oozing flavour! After a heavy meal, the lemon myrtle panna cotta was a delicious light dessert with the citrus flavour to round things off. Great value, generous servings, excellent service. . . . → Read More: 6101 Tapas & Meze – 3 Jun 2015

Beer and Skewer - 29 May 2015

Beer & Skewer - Beef fNoodle Soup

Beer and Skewer serve a variety of skewered meats Chinese style, dim sum, and a range of traditional Chinese dishes. I ordered one cumin chicken skewer ($2.50) which contained tender succulent chicken with a delicious cumin flavour. I also got one beef satay skewer ($2.50) but the beef was a little chewy though the satay sauce was lovely. For mains I chose the beef noodle soup ($12) which was like a big bowl of pho. The beef was like that from a chunk of roast but sliced thinly. It didn’t have much flavour. The broth was quite tasty though and started to soften the beef and the noodles. The noodles were quite chunky and not bad. Very filling dish, a real winter warmer, pretty good. Loved the cumin chicken skewer but you can get better noodle soup dishes (think Mr Bun for example). . . . → Read More: Beer and Skewer – 29 May 2015

Chez Pierre - 26 May 2015

Chez Pierre - Risotto Aux Fruits De Mer

A visit to Chez Pierre trying their Taste of France range never disappoints. We were treated to food from the town of Beaume. It started with a delicious risotto with the flavour of the crab permeating throughout the creamy risotto. The crab and prawn bisque provided plenty of flavour and richness, but this was offset by the tomato and meatiness from the squid stuffed pork balls. The squid was a tad chewy but the subtle herb flavoured super soft pork meatballs were delicious. A highlight of the night. That was followed by a beef cheek which cut as tender as the soft creamy mash that lay underneath. This was melt in your mouth stuff, the beef combining superbly with a red wine full bodied sauce, slight saltiness from the bacon-like lardo, sweet shallots, and soft mushrooms. To finish the heavy meal, a light dessert was required and millefeuille fitted the bill. Easy on the stomach, but delicious on the tongue, the crispy layers of puff pastry encased Chantilly cream and a delicious creme patisserie, enjoyed with fresh strawberries. I particularly liked the tart raspberry coulis. Amazing! . . . → Read More: Chez Pierre – 26 May 2015

The Brisbane Hotel and Stand Up Comedy at Lazy Susan's

The Brisbane Hotel - Confit Duck Leg

I was expecting a visit to the Brisbane Hotel to be the usual pub food but was pleasantly surprised that the menu is a little more upmarket. I took a particular liking to the chicken liver parfait and also enjoyed the arancini balls. The sausage rolls seem a bit out of place on any menu but were tasty but the beef cheek taco’s were a bit on the bland side and didn’t go with the creamy guacamole. For mains, I throughly enjoyed the confit duck leg where a decent portion of juicy, tender, and perfectly seasoned duck is presented. I enjoyed each and every bite which carried moistness and flavour. I also loved the mushroom filling in the tortellini which carried a real earthiness, though, I’m not sure why the tops of the tortellini were crisped. The ensuing comedy show at Lazy Susan’s is fantastic and if you love comedy then I recommend a visit and definitely recommend you get the duck. . . . → Read More: The Brisbane Hotel and Stand Up Comedy at Lazy Susan’s

Grill & Chill - 29 Apr 2015

Grill and Chill - Chocolate Cherry Naan

For me the highlight of the meal was dessert where I loved the cherry and chocolate naan with vanilla ice cream. The creamy pepper chicken carried a completely different flavour to the other dishes I have eaten here previously. In contrast to the rich creamy chicken, the Achari gosht contained a fair pungency and was a very tasty lamb curry. The entrees were also excellent. Another excellent night out enjoying tasty flavoursome Indian cuisine. . . . → Read More: Grill & Chill – 29 Apr 2015

Shiro Izakaya - 24 Apr 2015

Shiro - Pork Belly Set

Another visit to Shiro to try one of their lunch sets and they don’t disappoint. I like the variety, quality, taste, and presentation. It’s excellent value for money and will leave you comfortably full. On today’s outing I enjoyed the pork belly set which served lots of tender pork belly immersed in a delicious sauce which made the rice so delicious. I like the variety of the set with a delicious warming miso soup, fresh salad with a delicious dressing to liven up the greens, and today I went for the sushi which had soft shell crab which was tasty. . . . → Read More: Shiro Izakaya – 24 Apr 2015
