Sunday Funday Roast Sessions

We’re bringing Sunday back. Yeah!

Sunday Funday Roast Sessions

The Sunday roast is a timely tradition all about sitting down to a big meal of veggies, gravy and roast meat with your family to reconnect after a long week of hard work. The roast remains a dish that is treated with respect and care, something special. A meal that takes time and thought to prepare and should be celebrated with family and friends instead of something to be scoffed down in front of the television on your couch in your underwear. But with the many restaurants around Brisbane serving up delicious roasts any day of the week, makes it easy to keep this tradition alive. It might just be perfect the time to reinvigorate this age old tradition, disconnect from our gadgets and gizmos and reconnect with family over a delicious meal - whether it’s on a Sunday or not.

Word On The Street #115

Out with the old and in with the new (well, sort of). Staying on top of seasonal foodie trends and produce is something most Brisbane eateries take pride in #lucky. Menus are continually being updated and tweaked to suit, not only our wants and needs, but also, what's current, fresh and locally sourced. We've had the privilege of taste-testing a number of new breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink menus over the past few weeks, and we think you should try them too. Be quick though, time fly's when you're having fun and before you know it, it'll be spring and the menus will be different again!
