Fire up the foodie signal – comic-book-inspired bar 1st Edition opens in Fortitude Valley

It's time to don our secret identities and slip into our spandex costumes – all superheroes are urged to seek out 1st Edition, The Valley's brand-new comic–book–inspired bar and eatery. Tucked away in an out-of-the-way location in California Lane, 1st Edition is drawing inspo from the pages of comics and graphic novels for its range of punchy plates and tongue-tantalising tipples. Hop in the Batmobile, jump in the Quinjet or make like Spider-Man and swing through for a visit ... more

ZA ZA TA – Brisbane's best vegan spots

The round-up: fill up on goodness at Brisbane’s best vegan spots

Put your presuppositions in the bin – plant-based food is not just salad and steamed vegetables. Vegan cuisine is becoming increasingly prominent due to the rise of dietary requirements and a conscientious focus of what we put in our bodies. For those of you who can’t stomach the thought of canning the cutlets and trashing the T-bones in favour of salad, please relax – we aren’t here to sway you to veganism. What we will say is that dining as a vegan can be hard in our predominantly meat-eating society, but also very rewarding – even if you love bacon and eggs. We’ve chosen to point out Brisbane’s best vegan spots well worth sampling. more
