Foodies are in luck this week in brisbane with a choice of two very different, but equally amazing food events!
One is a food safari through Brisbane’s traditional Asian food hub, and the other will allow you to sample offerings from the cream of Queensland’s artisan food producers.
If music is more your thing you can check out 2 stages of live music at the inaugural new End of the Line Festival, or get down to some good old Aussie rock as Barnsie takes over Sirromet for A Day on the Green!
WHEN: Saturday 8th November
WHERE: Sunnybank Plaza, 538 Mains Rd, Sunnybank
Sunnybank has long been the go-to spot for Asian dining in Brisbane, but the sheer number of restaurants in the area can make choosing where to go a daunting prospect. That’s what makes the Sunnybank $2 Food Trail such an inspired concept – you can literally taste your way around over 20 outlets, spending just $2 at each venue! I’m taking the boys and I cant wait to discover some new hidden gems.
WHEN: Saturday 8th November
WHERE: Logan Rd, Woolloongabba
The Logan Road end of the Gabba is well known as a thriving antiques and dining precinct, and its convenient cul-de-sac location makes it a perfect spot for a street party! As well as the two live music stages the End of the Line Festival will also feature market stalls, kids activities and food galore as the local restaurants bring their menus into the street to feed the hungry punters. An when you’re talking about restaurants like 1889 Enoteca and The Birdcage you KNOW its going to be good!
WHEN: Sunday 9th November from 6.30 pm
WHERE: Wandering Cooks, 1 Fish Lane, South Brisbane
Small Batch Brisbane is a trade show, an industry development initiative and food expo all rolled into one. After a trade-only event where stallolders can win some of the $9,000 with of development awards on offer, Queensland’s finest artisan food producers will open their stalls to the public with products to taste and buy.
If you go, make sure you don’t miss Coco Bean Down Under. My friend Fran runs it with her husband Brad and they put their heart and soul into making amazing brownies!
WHEN: Sunday 9th November, from 2.30 pm
WHERE: Sirromet Wines, Mt Cotton Rod, Mt Cotton.
If you love classic Aussie rock then you can’t go past its undisputed king, Jimmy Barnes! Spend a balmy Sunday afternoon at the gorgeous Sirromet Winery for A Day on the Green and you could also have the chance to get up on stage and spin the wheel to decide which song Jimmy plays next! . Gates open at 2.30 pm and I’ve heard its worth getting there early to secure a good position.
Got something else lined up this week? I’d love to hear about it!
