One need only utter the phrase “Brisbane’s worst vegetarian restaurant” and odds are you know exactly what they are talking about – the iconic Norman Hotel. Woolloongabba’s mecca of all things meaty has earned its place in our city’s heart as a beloved institution that specialises in steak – from the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with a meat cabinet fully stocked with 16 succulent cuts to choose from. While the beef takes centre stage, there is a full menu of hearty pub-style mains to select from if steak ain’t your thing – think braised pork, mussels, parmigiana and more. Dine in the rustic-casual restaurant or go al fresco in the Garden Bar, where there are often themed pop-up bars to be found alongside cocktails and craft brews. If your grill skills are a little rusty, the Norman Hotel also offers regular Mastersteak BBQ Cooking Classes where you can learn the art of perfect steaks.
