Pavement Whispers: Volume 89 September 13
From whispers of Korean fried chicken to secret pop-up dinners, 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 …
Miss Kay’s Mitchelton
Always hankering for a mammoth Miss Kay’s burger but never find yourself in The City? Rejoice, dear reader, for Miss Kay’s is hitting the ‘burbs. The burger joint has found a second home on Blackwood Street in Mitchelton, and will be opening its doors in the coming days. Miss Kay’s Mitchelton will have the same menu as its sibling, with both venues’ offering getting a little shake up, including more breakfast options. The Mitchelton eatery will also boast a large outdoor beer garden, perfect for kicking back with a burg and cold one in the coming warmer months. We’ll have more details on the opening next week!
Sushi & Nori and Hello Chicken
Brisbane Showgrounds’ King Street dining precinct is continuing to grow, following the opening of The George Bar and Bistro, GG Espresso and Fat Dumpling in August. The next two instalments come from Sunny Kim, who will be bringing her modern Kaiseki sushi train restaurant Sushi & Nori up from Sydney and Melbourne, as well as Australia’s first Hello Chicken restaurant. Sushi & Nori will serve premium sushi and modern Asian cuisine, while Hello Chicken will dish out Korean-style fried chicken from its Kombi van takeaway and eat-in restaurant. The two eateries are set to open in late September – we’ll keep you posted with details.
The Lamb Shop
That’s not all that’s coming to King Street. Peter Glouftis’ Broadbeach favourite The Lamb Shop is also setting up shop in the precinct, due to open in October. The casual Greek eatery gives the traditional souvlaki a modern makeover, alongside Mediterranean-inspired dishes such as chargrilled octopus, and corn with oregano butter and shaved sheep-milk cheese. The concept will be much the same as the Broadbeach location, where you can watch the lamb on the spit rotating over hot coals while you await your meal to dine in or takeaway.
All of our Italian dreams are about to come true in Yeronga, with acclaimed chef Lorenzo Nobilio (formerly of Ash + Monties and Bistro Alegria) due to open his latest project in late October. Osteria Epoca will offer the full Italian package, combining cafe, restaurant, bar, salumi counter and alimentari (provisions store) in one. Hungry visitors will be able to dine in or takeaway a selection of handmade pastas, traditional Italian dishes and sweets, or create their own feast at home with the various house-made products in the alimentari, such as marinated olives, dips, sauces and more.
Secret Foodies is back for its second Brisbane pop-up event, this time hosting an Arabian Nights-themed dinner and cooking class on Thursday September 29. As always, the secret location of the event will be revealed to ticket holders two hours before via SMS. For September’s Secret Foodies event, guests will create, cook and feast in an Arabian market-style setting, with the flavours and aromas of pomegranate, saffron, rosewater and spices adding to the kasbah feel. Tickets are available now – head to our Event Guide for more details.
