Peel St Kitchen
Standing proud in the crook between West End and South Bank, Peel St Kitchen carries the casual air of a mate’s place, where guests are welcome to drop by any time of day for a bite and a beer. But that’s where the comparison stops, for the modern-Australian fare dished up at this South Brisbane locale is top-notch, lovingly prepared by some seriously qualified chefs. Owners Angelo and Angela Velante have taken fragments of inspiration from their combined heritage and world travels, and merged them effortlessly to create a quirky all-day dining destination. Their mothers’ faces watch on from a giant mural handpainted by local artist Gus Eagleton, while tropical plants climb up the walls and the glittering bar beckons with all its temptations.
