Food, Fire & Fu Manchu!

GC Word on the Street #98

New season, new you! Now that we can actually get out of bed before 9am without freezing, going out with your gal pals for brunch isn't such a bad idea. Cafe's and restaurants right around the Coast are breaking out their Spring menu's, with Waffles and Pancakes being swapped for Acai Bowls and Avo on Toast as we shake off the Winter blues and move back into the days of blue skies. There's nothing better than a day out with your gal pals - So why not hit up a cafe for their new Spring menu then head to NightQuarter for a show afterwards?

New Menu | Fu Manchu Oriental Kitchen

If you haven't been down to Fu Manchu yet, you're seriously missing out. Hidden behind a dark wooden door and complete with hanging lanterns, this place has some seriously cool vibes - And to top it all off they've just released their brand new Spring menu! Combining Asian and European flavours, Fu Manchu has something for just about everyone, with everything from Bao to Broccolini ready to suit even the pickiest eaters. Book yourself in for lunch or dinner and dig into Pork Belly, Karaage Chicken, Crispy Tofu or their ever-popular range of Dumplings and Bao, then finish the evening off with a bottle of bubbles or one of their incredible desserts! Check it out... You'll thank us later.

Saturday Spectacular | September 21st & 22nd @ NightQuarter

We all know that NightQuarter is seriously cool - I mean, who doesn't want to spend the evening eating food, sipping cocktails and listening to live music? But they're about to get a whole lot cooler, with their newest Saturday Spectacular show! Grab a cocktail and a beanbag as fire jugglers, stuntmen and acrobats fill the stage of The Paddock, combining dancing, stunts and fire into a truly incredible performance! Haven't figured out what you're doing Friday yet? Problem solved.

New Menu | Main Street Burger Bar

Mmmm, burgers. There's nothing more satisfying than biting down into a juicy burger when you're getting hungry, so we were pretty excited when Main Street Burger Bar announced they were bringing out a bunch of new Burgers right in time for Spring! Sink your teeth into a traditional cheeseburger or try something a little different with their Spicy Chicken Burger or Fancy Joe (complete with cheese, bacon, double beef and caramelised onion). They've also got heaps of snacks and sides, so if you're not a huge fan of burgers you can still dig into Wings, Onion Rings, Fries and even Mac and Cheese! Can't decide? Me neither - Why not just get it all!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
