Dagwood dogs but make it fancy – level up show-day festivities at this Ekka-inspired high tea
We’ve arrived in August, dear readers, and that means one thing – Ekka is on the horizon! Queensland’s largest annual event brings us bucketloads of joy (and a cheeky public holiday) so it’s safe to say we’re pretty darn excited. We thought we couldn’t be more pumped up … but we were wrong. Amping up the festivities and flavourful delights is Treasury Brisbane’s show day-inspired high tea, which is brimming with celebration-worthy sweet and savoury bites.
One of our favourite times of year, the Ekka, is nigh heralding the resurgence of some of our favourite show-day treats. From Saturday August 13 to Sunday August 14, The Lab at Treasury Brisbane is getting in on the action with an Ekka-inspired high tea that’s sure to knock your socks off. This heavenly feast includes bottomless La Maison Du Thé French hand-crafted teas, dainty gourmet ribbon sandwiches, petite quiches and frittatas and even mini dagwood dogs! On the sweet side, you can tempt your taste buds with super-cute cakes and pastries topped with strawberries, fairy floss and popcorn.
If you really want to take things to the next level, you can indulge in the Chandon high tea for $70 per person – and personally, we can never say no to bubbles. Prefer cocktails? You’re in luck – The Lab will also be doling out a Showground Spritz for $15, which is a lip-smacking locally themed concoction of Brisbane Gin, creme de framboise, framboise Monin, cream and strawberries – all topped with a delicate bundle of rose-flavoured fairy floss. Treasury Brisbane’s show-stopping high tea is $50 per person and is available from August 13–14 only from 1:00–3:30 pm. There is a limited availability of spots – to make a booking, call 1800 506 889.
