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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
