If we could order everything off the entire menu at most places, we would. Trust us, we know the share-plate-picking-woes all too well, so we’ve done the heavy lifting to curate a list of our top picks.
1. Sangria Bar
The Sangria Bar’s Sunset Tapas menu is the stuff of legends! Settle on in at the bar and enjoy a meal comprised of Fried manchego cheese with mojo picon or the Grilled octopus, chorizo, fresh lime, parsley and tomato. Finish it off with a jug of sangria (there’s only a lousy seven mixes to choose from) and you have the makings of a great night. Salut!
If you only do one thing this week, get yourself down to Ahmet’s (on a weekday for lunch!) and order their Istanbul Meze Board. It comes with *takes deep breath* Glazed Turkish Bread and your choice of two dips, served alongside a minced lamb and beef skewer, tomato and cucumber salad, zucchini fritters, potato salad and Turkish-style calamari, followed by Turkish delight and sweet apple tea. The best part? Its only $19.50pp. Now, if that’s not value, we don’t know what is!
3. Hop and Pickle
Come and partake in the ‘Hop’ culture. These guys have given ‘pub classics’ a gastronomical twist! Think slow-cooked pork belly with fondant potato, jalapeno poppers with cream cheese and beer battered pickles with pepper jam and aioli! Wash it all down with a pint of craft beer.
This is the original home of the share plate. Everything at Popolo is designed to not only be shared, but draw people together. And with dishes such as hand made burrata, four cheese aranchini and ricotta-stuffed olives, how could you not come together over these?
Junk has established itself as the go to for quality, well priced and delicious modern asian food in Brisbane. The popular Hawker-style eat house serves up all your Asian faves in a relaxed setting that aims to capture the fun and casual culture of South-East Asian street food. Whether chicken karaage, crispy eggplant or teriyaki salmon is your muse, they’ve got the share-plate fuel for you.
