The Dish: Brisbane food news you might have missed this week

There’s a lot happening in Brisbane these days, almost too much to keep up with. The Dish is a rapid-fire rundown of Brisbane food news – quick taster-sized tidbits to keep you in the know and, perhaps, tickle your taste buds. This week we’ve got word of Southside’s duck dinner, the Sunnybank Food trail and more!

Duck Duck Pinot
The Fish Lane precinct is hosting a laneway wide food celebration this month, with Duck Duck Pinot taking place from July 12–28. A bunch of Fish Lane’s best eateries will be serving its own unique duck dish paired with a glass of primo pinot, with every combo coming in at under $55. This year, sleek NYC-inspired haunt Midtown will be serving a 2022 Delamere Flyleaf pinot noir alongside a plate of slow-cooked confit duck leg with broad beans, peas, zucchini, orange segments and jus. Down the lane, Hello Please will sling serves of its new crispy duck wontons, Julius Pizzeria is the spot for piping-hot plates of pappardelle al ragù d’anatra (served alongside a 2022 In Dreams pinot noir from Yarra Valley), La Lune is dishing out hearty duck pithiviers and pouring the venue’s very own pinot, while Chu The Phat is warming bellies with its tea-salted duck legs with duck-egg noodles, mushrooms and garlic butter (paired with a glass of Coldstream Hills pinot noir). Head to the Fish Lane website to see which other venues are getting amongst the action this year.

Duck Dinner at Southside
Mark your calendars, folks – one of Southside’s most beloved dining events is making its return for the third year in a row. On Thursday July 25, the Fish Lane restaurant will host another edition of its Duck Dinner, with head chef Benny Lam showcasing the culinary versatility of the humble duck across a five-course, ten-dish menu. This year, Duck Dinner guests will be able to tuck into the likes of smoked-duck parfait with Sichuan pickles and crispy rice, duck xiao long bao with master stock and Pedro Ximénez, crispy golden calamari with salted duck egg and chilli, and classic Hong Kong-style tea-smoked roast duck with lilly pilly plum sauce. Diners will also be able to pair the menu with matched speciality ‘flocktails’ and explore a special menu of pinots by the glass. Head to the Southside website for more info and booking details.

Sunnybank Food Trail
Returning for its tenth year, the Sunnybank Food Trail is set to take foodies a mouth-watering adventure through China, Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Korea. On Saturday July 13 from 2:00–8:00 pm, more than 40 stalls will serve an array of Asian eats for a bargain, from noodles and dumplings to stir-fries, curries and soups. Those with a sweet tooth will be able to sate sugary cravings with the likes of bubble tea, cream buns and hot cakes. With Sunnybank Food Trail’s offering going for just $2, $3 and $5, guests will be able to sample a smorgasbord of bites for a steal. The day will also feature live entertainment – including performances from traditional Chinese lion dancers – and chances to win a holiday to anywhere in Asia. Head to the Experience Sunnybank Website for more info.

Falls Farm Wednesdays at Ach Wine Bar
Sunshine Coast-based organic and regeneratively farmed produce supplier The Falls Farm is teaming up with sensational Hamilton eatery Ach Wine Bar for a new weekly dinner series. Every Wednesday, head farmer Pedro Ramos will be delivering a mystery box of fruit and vegetables, which Ach chefs Marty Coard and Noam Lissner will be converting into five-plate menu, which will rotate weekly. The feast is available for $50 per person, with a matched pairing of Middle Eastern vino available for an additional $40. Head to Ach Wine Bar’s website to make a reservation.

Adelita Wine Bar launches breakfast
The community has been asking for it and now the team at Adelita Wine Bar in Wynnum is delivering the goods. The emerald-hued nosh spot has just launched a weekend breakfast service, offering a cracking menu available between 7:00–11:30 am every Saturday and Sunday. In true Adelita fashion, the menu boasts a mixture of familiar faves and some more experimental options. We’re talking Italian Benedicts (poached eggs and your choice of prosciutto or smoked salmon, pepperberry hollandaise and focaccia), chilli baked beans with pulled pork and sour cream on sourdough, winter rice pudding with red wine-poached pear and puffed rice, and the breakfast poke bowl – a chirashi sushi bowl topped with kingfish, salmon, cucumber, edamame and wasabi. Furry friends are now welcome to, with Adelita now pet friendly until 5:00 pm.

Buttery Boy at night
If you’ve tried to snag a table at Buttery Boy in The Valley recently, there’s a good chance you might have seen a line snaking its way down Duncan Street. So popular is the brunch spot that folks have had to wait for a taste of its plate-sized buttery cakes and bougie hot chocolates. If you don’t mind a bit of breakfast for dinner, then this bit of news might offer a solution – Buttery Boy is launching an evening service this Friday June 7. From 6:00–8:00 pm on Friday and Saturday nights, guests will be able to pop in and satisfy their nighttime cravings. To celebrate the launch of its after-dark service, the Buttery Boy team has added some new items to its menu. Diners now have two more kinds of hot chocolate – a cookies ‘n’ cream and white-chocolate brulee variety – as well as a new Nutella bombe Alaska-inspired buttery cake. Buttery Boy is also pouring a range of vino and coffees until close. Save room for dessert next time you’re dining in The Valley and make tracks for Buttery Boy to get your sweet fix.
