Pavement Whispers: Volume 104 January 10
From whispers of hip-hop burgers to fried-chicken joints, The Weekend Edition is always on the search for the latest news in Brisbane, dedicated to ensuring its readers are in the know. When we put our ears to the pavement this week, this is what we found out …
Momo Chicken City
Korean fried chicken is certainly taking the city by storm and it’s not hard to see why – if done right it’s damn delicious. Fried-chicken lovers have been flocking to Runcorn for arguably some of the best crispy chick in town at Momo Chicken & Beer, but if that’s a little too far for you to travel don’t fret – Momo Chicken City is opening in the coming weeks. The second venue for the eatery is set to open on Albert Street in late January/early February and will have a very similar offering to its Runcorn sibling, with the addition of eight new menu items including burgers. Yes please! Keep an eye on The Weekend Edition – we’ll have more details for you soon.
There’s a new burger joint coming to town and one thing is for sure – these burgs are going to be juicy. Biggie’s Burgers (named after the Notorious man himself) comes from the creative team behind Bulimba’s Barcadia and is set to open the week of January 16. But there’s a twist – you won’t be able to come to the burgers, the burgers will come to you. Biggie’s menu will only be available via UberEATS and direct delivery for lunch and dinner Tuesday through to Sunday. On the menu you’ll find five burgers – such as the Big Poppa Pork Belly, East Coast Chicken and Bad Boy Brisket – alongside wings, chilli cheese fries and shaker fries, complete with a Biggie-style baggie. Biggie’s popped up at Barcadia on Boxing Day with a roaring success and you can expect another pop-up on Australia Day – keep an eye on its Facebook page for details.
Wine and charcuterie are two of our favourite things, so news of a new wine and charcuterie bar is good news to us. Copado is underway on Macquarie Street in Teneriffe, in the space formerly occupied by Urban Cellars. The wine bar is the brainchild of The Dalgety Public House’s Mic Uebergang and entrepreneur Jordan Grives, and will serve up a curated selection of interesting and independent wines alongside Spanish-style share plates and charcuterie. With its name translating to ‘copious’, we think you can expect to have a rather indulgent time when Copado opens its doors in the coming months.
Small Coffee Co.
Spring Hill locals, listen up! There’s a new place for you to get your coffee hit. Small Coffee Co. quietly opened its doors yesterday in Spring Hill Marketplace, with operations set to be in full swing next week. The cafe has teamed up with the Gold Coast’s Blackboard Coffee, pouring a custom house blend and the roastery’s Guatemala Santa Clara. Pastries, paninis, baguettes, smoothies and acai bowls will soon be added to the menu, which you can grab on the run or dine in at the cafe. Well have more details for you next week!
