Carolina Kitchen Morningside
Southsiders mourned the loss of Coorparoo’s Carolina Kitchen – a member of Brisbane’s first wave of American barbecue joints. Tears of sadness turned to tears of joy, as the Southern-style American diner opened a new venue in Morningside (next to Lick! Ice Cream), in the final weeks of 2017. Carolina Kitchen Morningside serves up the same menu as its James Street and Riverland locations (think burgers, wings, ribs and fries), while also looking to bring back a few of the old Coorparoo favourites such as cornbread and Southern pies. Fans of the iconic hoagie can expect them to pop up as rotating specials, and a few new items like chicken ribs and sweet potato fries could also potentially appear in the near future. The new location also sees a new diner model for the eatery, with seating inside, on the footpath and in the alfresco area at the back.
