If you’re keen to fill up on belly-warming eats this winter, read on to find out what you can stick a fork in to …
Like a lighthouse that sits pretty atop the cliffs, The Barracks is found perfectly perched at the peak of the lively Petrie Terrace precinct. It’s on this inner-city hill where you can indulge in a smorgasbord of sips and snacks that up the ante when it comes to flavour and decadence. Kick off your culinary adventure with Spanish tapas and entremeses from beloved fine-dining restaurant Moda, and lap up menu winners like beef-cheek empanadas with truffle emulsion and cauliflower panna cotta with Avruga caviar. Next stop is flavourful French-Vietnamese spot Libertine, where you can devour elegant eats like Moreton Bay bug toast, tiger-prawn croissants and lamb dumplings. Just don’t forget to leave room for dessert, as Libertine’s melt-in-your-mouth chocolate fondant is a must-try.
Those hankering for a cheesy concoction should look no further than The Bavarian, where you can dig in to mac-and-cheese croquettes with smoked bacon and blue-cheese mayo, sticky pork ribs and loaded chicken schnitzels. Sizzling dishes from Tiger Eye Bar will act as a cosy cuddle with appetite whetters like roast minted lamb rack in red wine and rosemary jus and seafood ravioli with sand crab, prawns and scallops gracing the jam-packed menu. If you’re strapped for time, grab-and-go bites can also be found at Oporto (hello, hot chippies!) and Sushi Edo – because who doesn’t love some cheeky sushi-train action, especially when all of the train plates start at $4.20?
