Himawari, Sunnybank Plaza, Sunnybank, Brisbane

so-called Chicken Karaage Curry
Oh Himawari, what happened? I remembered the first time I tried Himawari was in Elizabeth Arcade in the CBD, way back years ago. They have another branch which is in Sunnybank Plaza. We decided to come here for lunch, since we were wanting Japanese curry for lunch during the time. Unfortunately, it was disappointing...

Hatch & Co., Gasworks Plaza, Newstead, Brisbane

Hatch n Co has been one of the most talked about restaurants since it open their doors. Being one of the popular restaurants in the Gasworks Precinct in Newstead, I do have to say, it is definitely a good lunch or dinner spot. At night, sitting outside would give you the nice view of the changing coloured lights of the Gasometer area whilst also getting fresh air. I do recommend making reservations since they do get booked out quite easily. Coming here for my mum's birthday was quite a minute-thinking-moment since I had a few places in mind but finally made my decision and chose to have a birthday lunch here.

Ren Japanese Restaurant, Eight Mile Plains, Brisbane

Located in the Runcorn Shopping Plaza on Warrigal Rd, opposite Warrigal Square, a few variety of different restaurants are offered including Korean BBQ, Korean Dessert, Chinese hot pot and 'Ren', a Japanese restaurant amongst it. A few tables were filled but the restaurant weren't fully filled and this was on a weekend. The menu had a good range of different Japanese cuisines with reasonable prices.

Domino's Pulled Pork Range Review

Good Ol' Dominos, they've recently released their new Pulled Pork range which consisted of three different varieties of Pulled Pork pizzas. Now, pulled pork is everywhere at the moment, it's basically a hit in restaurants around here. Don't let the name 'pulled pork' hold you back or under estimate it, it's not as easy as you think to cook pulled pork. Pork meat pulled apart? Well, not exactly.. it's pork meat being slow cooked at a low temperature until it becomes tender to pull itself apart without you having to put extra effort by getting your forks and pulling the meat off each other.. Domino's gave me the chance to try their new range and who could say no to pizza and pulled pork? Oh, and also without having to move an inch or get out of the house and drive to pick it up..

Gallery Cafe, Westfield Chermside, Brisbane

Gallery Cafe is situated right at the centre of the mall in front of David Jones in Westfield Chermside. I would always walk past it but never tried it though I have tried their sister restaurant in Carindale. We decided to have a quick not-so-filling-lunch as we weren't that hungry and whilst walking past it, we thought we would try the place.

The Ponycat Cafe, New Farm, Brisbane

Another New Farm based brunch place, Ponycat located in Brunswick St in New Farm is at the corner amongst other restaurants and shops. One of the things that caught my eye from the online photos I have seen were the chalked menu on the counter and the graffiti art walls. Oh, also the food I guess, but it seemed more of classic meals instead of fusionised or hyped up dishes offered when compared to the other brekky competitor eateries around in Brisbane.

Hong Depot, Melbourne St, South Brisbane, Brisbane

Hong Depot, a Korean restaurant offering both A-la-carte and BBQ. Though its location is a bit out of place, the corner of Melbourne St in West End, opposite where Coles is, and close to the well-known Three Monkeys.. I don't usually go for Korean in West End, a bit off for me as my usual Korean restaurants would either be in the CBD or in the southside..

Wunderbar Bakery Bistro, Vernon Terrace, Teneriffe, Brisbane

Apologies for the delays and the absence of the posts.. I've been extremely busy with uni studies, since mid-sems has been over-taking my time and I've also been getting so much lack of sleep :( But now since I'm having a 'little' bit of time on my hands, what better way to use that time to blog... I have so many photos to show you, so many queuing posts coming up which has been screaming to get uploaded online.. I'm getting there, I'm getting there..

So let me start off, with a sweet start.. Wunderbar Bakery Bistro is a German eatery located in Teneriffe. Offering both desserts and light meals, coffee and alcohol. I remembered when this place used to be Passione and I loved their waffles especially and was quite upset when I found out they had closed down. There are German restaurants in Brisbane however, not bakeries.

Little Pawpaw, Kitchener Rd, Chermside, Brisbane

It's nice to see brekky places in the north side or south, not having to always it being around the CBD area.. Little Pawpaw is under the same group of Pawpaw Cafe, Mons Ban Sabai, Green Papaya and Picnic. Hidden in a suburban area of Chermside, though not too close to Westfield Chermside, going by car is preferable.. It was quite troubling to find it, since having thought that it would be near the main road side, but instead, was at the far end of the other side..
