#FoodReview – Lunch @ ribs and rumps, Brisbane

Byebye 2015 welcome 2016 009

Wow the year 2015 flew by so fast, before we could say Jack, it was already 31st December, 2015.

2015 was no doubt a challenging year for me, my family and business and to a larger extent the whole world. Despite all odds, it is quite ok to be thankful and hopeful for a better 2016.

To round up the year, we decided to have a good lunch since we won’t be attending any of the fireworks in the city of Brisbane to welcome 2016.

Ribs and rumps Fortitude Valley, a bar & grill restaurant was a good choice for us since we had steak in mind. 

We arrived at the restaurant a little early before opening time but the place was all set and the friendly staff easily got a us a good spot despite our  not having a reservation (don’t mind me, I never remember to make reservations, I once got in trouble for that on mother’s day).

We ordered mocktail (cocktail without alcohol) for drinks.

It was cool and it had Lemon, Lime mint and some other stuff I can’t remember. 

 

Byebye 2015 welcome 2016 005

Mocktail Cost – $8.00

We got the grilled banana prawns as entree which was on the ‘to share’ part of the menu, oh my God this was finger licking. You should try it whenever you go to ribs and rumps.

Byebye 2015 welcome 2016 007

Grilled Banana Prawns (buttreflied then grilled with garlic and herb butter) Cost – $17.50

Then came the main meal which I was looking forward to. It came quite fast beyond my expectation, I am still trying to work out the kind of magic the chef did to make our meals that quick.

I ordered the 250g PINNACLE RUMP w/ SLOW-ROASTED LAMB RIBS with herb and garlic potatoes.Byebye 2015 welcome 2016 009

The lamb ribs was my favourite on this dish, It was succulent, tender and well cooked. It was literally melting in my mouth.

We also had Caesar salad to go with it. That was yum.

Byebye 2015 welcome 2016 010

This was a perfect way to round up 2015 and welcome 2016.

I recommend this restaurant for anyone who love to have a decent dining experience in #Brisbane.

The staff are friendly, hard working and full of smiles.

I scored this meal a 7 out of 10.

#FoodReview – Dinner @ George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant

Today is a public holiday in #Australia, and in continuation of the Christmas celebrations,we went to #Brisbane to feed our eyes and eventually had dinner.

Wifey wanted seafood and i was craving meat (steak, lamb) in fact, any grilled meat will do. No diet this week, that will resume in January.

We have eaten at George’s Paragon seafood restaurant before and our experience there was awesome , so it came naturally on our radar when we decided to have dinner.

We didn’t have a reservation, but the duty manager or staff in charge of bookings, Casandra was quite helpful as she sorted that out and gave us a vacant table quickly. She is an angel.

One quick tip for you , if you are seated in the restaurant between 5:30pm and 6:30pm, it is half rice, yes, you read that right, HALF PRICE !!!. I discovered that today too.

Starters.

We chose hot bread rolls with butter

Tzatzaki with Greek Yogurt

Drink.

We all opted for mocktails since we didn’t want alcohol, this drink was the bomb. Sweet, cold, fresh and quite fruity.

There are lots of options on the menu for seafood and meat, but I settled for the ‘Souvlaki’ which is the name for their grilled lamb dish.

City shots & dinner @ George's Paragon 031

The meat came out tender, fresh, yummy, properly cooked and awesome. I enjoyed every bite and would have ordered for more if not that i am conscious of my weight.

In case you want to try to cook that at home, the ingredients are listed below;

Souvlaki – Lamb, oregano, garlic, onion, capsicum, lemon, olive oil, served on rice with pita bread and Greek salad.

I gave the food a score of 8 out of 10 and will recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for an excellent place to dine while in Brisbane.

We were attended to by a waitress named , Kelly (in training) and she did an excellent job making sure our food came out on time , we never ran short of cold water and was quite courteous and friendly.

Restaurant : George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant

Address: Level 1/45 Eagle St, Brisbane QLD 4000

Reservations quite essential to avoid disappointments.

SuperPower Salad @ Grll’d #FoodReview

SuperSalad2

I was out yesterday to have some fun and explore Ipswich, a beautiful city 40 km outskirt of Brisbane in Queensland.

So after a good swim (playing with water), at the Robelle Domain lagoon, Springfield Central I decided it was time for lunch.

After a quick browse of the different restaurants and cafes located in the Orion Springfield central mall, we settled for ‘Grll’d’, a cafe with specialty in burgers and salads. I had a cook glance at their menu looking for something healthy to eat. Grill’d as stated on their menu, “uses 100 % grass fed beef & lamb and chicken that is 100% free from antibiotics & added hormones”, so I fell in love with the brand philosophy and ordered the ‘SuperPower Salad’.

Ingredients.

Grilled chicken breast

Avocado

Beetroot

Almonds

Cherry tomatoes

Cos Lettuce

Carrot

Mint

Extra virgin olive oil

Quinoa (extra at $1.50)

Food came right on time after ordering, in fact I was looking at the chef through the transparent kitchen glass while he was preparing it.

I love the shape of the plate and presentation was cool.

I started to eat with an expectation for some ‘yumminess’ in my mouth.

The chicken wasn’t sweet, it was as if nothing (salt, spice) was added to it at all. 

I also feel with the extra $1.50 I paid for Quinoa, there should be some good quantity in the salad but it looks it was just sprinkled on it.

Overall, for $15.00 worth of salad, my expectation was higher than what I got. An extra dash of olive oil would have made the salad juicer too.

I score the food 5/10.

The staff no doubt are good and friendly and the cafe setup was cool.

I will be back again to try a burger.

Fortitude Valley is the fun precinct of Brisbane, this is home to China town, famous clubs & pubs, Asian/Oriental restaurants, luxury car showrooms, residential and commercial apartments.

This is the fun headquarters of Brisbane city on weekends, i mean it rocks here.
