Miel Container, Cnr Mary St and Albert St, Brisbane CBD

Miel Container (Premium Homemade Burger) lies at the corner of Mary and Albert St., easily noticeable with its bright red shipping tin with seats both inside and outside. A simple but eye catching joint offering the food where we all know, everyone loves, which is.. Burgers, of course.. This isn't your fine dining, nor your food court food, what reminds me of this were the American street food, selling simple but delicious food where you won't be able to resist to try when you walk past..

Billykart Kitchen, Annerley, Brisbane

Spanner Crab Spaghetti, tomato, chilli and basil
With all the buzz that has been happening in the CBD or around it, more restaurants or more cafes opening up, don't under estimate or forget about those restaurants that may be away from the city centre but offers great food. Here we have Billykart Kitchen, owned by celebrity chef, Ben O'Donoghue and his wife, Dee, located in Annerley in a suburban area.

Kwan Brothers, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane

Too Bao To Handle, Too Cold To Hold
Okay.. I finally tried Kwan Bros, though after a long delay of not trying them when they opened. I finally visited Kwan Bros and made new friends along the way too. Kwan Bros is the newest establishments of Damien Griffith's line up of restaurants, following Alfred and Constance, Alfred's Pizzeria and Chester Street Bakery. Though parking may be a hassle once you realise it's in the Valley, but don't worry, Kwan Bros offers free parking right in front of the restaurant, just remember to get it validated. Before I go on, Kwan Brothers isn't really your typical asian restaurant, nor is it your typical western restaurant, I may just call it as a fusion.. but, not as a fusion of normal typical asian food, but focusing more on street food. This includes, hawker markets of Singapore, street carts of Bangkok and Izakayas of Tokyo.. Now, where should I begin?

French and Mor, Albany Creek, Brisbane

Though this may not be Le Bon Choix in the CBD, this place may be known as the original Le Bon Choix until it changed its name to French and Mor. Offering a wide variety of freshly baked breads, salads, sandwiches and of course, offering Le Bon Choix cakes. Located in Albany Creek in a humble shopping complex, we came for brunch or maybe it was lunch, I can't recall.. there were a few parking spots available though it may get filled quickly.

Little Larder, New Farm, Brisbane

Smoked Salmon & Spinach on pesto scrambled eggs
Little Larder lies at the corner of Moray St and Barker St, named one of the best brekky place around in New Farm, we came here. We arrived in the morning and it was quite not too hard finding parking since there were street parking available. Seats were available but limited as the other tables and seats seemed to have been filled.. Before coming, I had a quick look through at the menu online so I had an idea of what to order.. well, unless something changed my mind..

Newsroom Cafe, High St, Toowong, Brisbane

Was wandering around Toowong one day and found this cafe in the corner in front of Toowong Village. I've kind of seen it but maybe didn't really pay much attention to it as it didn't really appeal to me as much. Though on this day, for some reason, I ended up here.. I've only glanced across it when going from Uni to Train Station but I guess it was time for me to try it as it seemed kind of the only decent cafe around..

New Shanghai, Queens Plaza, Brisbane CBD

New Shanghai Xiao Long Bao
A short re-visit to New Shanghai in Queens Plaza which ended up having them giving us the wrong recommendations. I remember my last two visits here was good and bad, so another visit which was quite dissapointing. When we came, it was about late arvo and the seats and tables weren't quite as packed as when it is lunch time, but it was a moderate amount of diners at the time.

Fine Food Queensland, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Brisbane

I know, I know.. this may be very late to post but I have quite been busy and since currently being on uni holidays, I might say.. I do have more time to do this and that and trying to update and post as much as I can, though maybe not too much because then the blog will get bombarded.. Well, here is my review of the annual event of Fine Food Queensland which was also held in Western Australia but Fine Food Queensland was held this year in April. For a thorough introduction regarding the event, please click Fine Food Queensland and read about it.

Guylian Belgian Chocolate Cafe, George St, The Rocks, Sydney

Guyliannnnnnnn... Oh, chocolate goodness.. Oh, Lindt, Godiva, Haigh's, Hersheys, Royce and so many more chocolate brands that you could ever think of. Well, I think they really need more specialized chocolate stores in Brisbane I might say, other than San Churros or Max Brenner or Monty's or Dello Mano and so on. Originated from Belgium in 1960, sold in more than 100 countries worldwide, you may know their famous Guylian seashells too and they still remain faithful to their original praline recipe..
