We can all agree that April tends to be a month of indulgence.
With the Easter long weekend looming (hello chocolate eggs) and a series of other long weekend’s on the horizon, it’s easy to feel a little sugared out. So if you’re looking for some delicious dining ideas to balance out your chocolate-induced sugar high, or if you’re simply a savoury fiend at heart, here is our guide for where to eat this Easter.
Fritzenberger – Nothing say’s holidays like a delicious, juicy burger with a side of hand cut fries! If you haven’t tried the Nashville Hot Chicken Burger from Fritzenberger you are SERIOUSLY missing out.
Ma Pa Me – Delivering all your nostalgic favourites with a modern Asian twist, Ma Pa Me know how to banquet in style. Their slow cooked, sticky lamb ribs are *chefs kiss* to die for!
SUKI – When in need of a quick and healthy lunch on the run, head to SUKI. Their fresh Yuzu Tuna bowl with mixed leaves, spring onion, cherry tomatoes, cabbage, cucumber & coriander is always a winner.
Banh Mee Time – Who could go past a grilled pork Banh Mee on a fresh, crispy roll? Serving authentic, Vietnamese eats every Monday to Saturday, Banh Mee Time is seriously addictive.
The Jetty – All long weekend’s should include a luxe, riverside dining experience at The Jetty. Featuring the best in Australian produce, their beautifully curated menu will have you hooked! Psst… their Tasmanian chilli mussels in sugo are something else.
River Quay Fish –Whether you tuck in to a delicious main or share a premium seafood platter, stacked high with Queensland king prawns, crab, oysters, smoked salmon, salad and fresh baguette, you won’t be disappointed by an evening at River Quay Fish.
Aquitaine – Indulge in Aquitaine’s sumptuous degustation menu this long weekend. With the option to pair with wine, their talented team will step you through a number of delish courses – from citrus cured kingfish (one of our personal faves) to glazed Borrowdale pork roulade.
OTTO – When it comes to luxurious fine-dining, it doesn’t get much better than an evening spent by the river at OTTO. We still can’t stop dreaming about their hand rolled pasta with blue swimmer crab, tomato, chilli, lemon and basil.
VICI Italian – VICI is THE spot to go for traditional, Italian fare that the whole family can enjoy. From mouth-watering, woodfired pizzas to shared antipasto and mains (the addiction to their prosciutto di parma is real), you’ll be wanting to make a booking ASAP.
Mucho Mexicano – Make your next savoury fiesta a Mexican fiesta! Serving up authentic eats 7 days a week, Mucho Mexicano know how to bring the fun and the flavour (oh and tacos… so many delicious pulled pork tacos).
Baba Ganouj – If there’s one thing that Baba Ganouj know how to do well, its traditional, savoury Lebanese food. For those who haven’t tried their cheese sambusek - lightly fried pastries filled with halloumi, feta and mozzarella – we suggest you change that STAT.
Viet De Lites – If you share our obsession for delicious, authentic Vietnamese food, you’ll want to get yourself a booking at Viet De Lites this long weekend! Their soft-shell crab in tamarind sauce holds a small place in our heart (and in our stomachs).
