We’ve welcomed some pretty awesome members to our South Bank clique this past month. If you haven’t paid a visit to any of the below, we suggest you change that ASAP!
Fresh, healthy, nourishing. SUKI specialise in poke bowls and sushi burrito that satisfy and sustain the body. Made to order in front of your eyes, their poke bowls and sushi burrito are perfect on-the-go meals – minus the guilt! Customers can completely customise their meal, with seven base choices (hello black rice or quinoa and kale), five types of fish (including our fave kingfish and tuna), nine dressings (try SUKI’s namesake sesame sauce) and more than twenty toppings (we’re looking at you seaweed salad, avo, radish and orange segments). As for those of you who hate making decisions, you can select from one of SUKI’s signature pre-made bowls or burritos.
RAMEN has arrived on Grey Street! The sister concept of SUKI dishes up hot bowls of Brisbane’s best ramen. The space is monochrome but the simple menu boasts a choice of ramen that brim with colour and flavour. Pork, chicken or vegetable ramen are on offer in a variety of styles. If you’re feeling extra hungry, order a side! Pork or vegetable gyoza, agedashi tofu, kimchi and chicken karaage are among our favourite sides on offer.
Describing themselves as a ‘locally owned and operated purveyor of fine consumables,’ Malt’s focus is on unique, sustainable and craft beverages (specifically craft beer, bio dynamic and organic wines and single malt whisky). But wait – is it a bar or a bottle shop? The answer is both! The good people at Malt Traders allow you to choose your tipple directly off the shelf and then take a seat and enjoy it in the comfort of the store (think warm wooden interiors and alfresco dining tables). They have a great selection of meat and cheese boards to pair your drink with, or alternatively you are able to BYO food. Rumour also has it that they will be teaming up with local restaurants in the precinct for delivery so watch this space!
South Bank fave Baba Ganouj has re-opened on Little Stanley Street with a brand spanking new fit-out and menu to match! A wholly unique concept showcasing thousands of years of tradition, Baba Ganouj combines fresh cuisine with traditional cooking methods to give South Bank patrons a taste of authentic Lebanese dishes. Their Saj flat bread complements all manner of toppings, allowing you to enjoy the full flavour of your food while experiencing the unique texture only Saj possesses. Each Saj is made fresh to order with a bevy of toppings including lamb, garlic chicken, and triple cheese (plus some sweeter dessert options). You can also sample a wider array of gourmet Lebanese dishes with an assortment of wraps, grilled meat skewers, and salads.
Okay so… Denim Co. is not technically ‘new’ however the longstanding Little Stanley Street favourite has just had a facelift and the results are fabulous! West End based interiors team Derlot kept wall art stylish, furniture modern and colour to a minimum. The setting isn’t the only new thing. Steve Warden-Hutton has joined the team as Head Chef, revamping the menu to include house-made cold pressed juices, israeli cous cous vegetable salad and chipotle spiced savoury mine with poached eggs and flat bread. Don’t worry, the jaffles and waffles aren’t going anywhere. In fact, golden waffles are now being served with vanilla panna cotta, chocolate honeycomb and butterscotch sauce. Thank you, Steve.
