South Side Diner at Southbank, Brisbane

  
     

South Side Diner
Shop B8/B9 168 Grey St, South Brisbane

We wanted to have dinner seated down by the river so walking past the Night Noodle markets where we later had some dessert, we found South Side Diner after a lovely little stroll. One look at the enticing menu had us hooked and it didn’t take us long to order our meals. If only we had room in our tummies to order the jumbo prawn thermidor and mac n cheese! Oh well there’s always next time.

We ordered:

– Crispy fried duck with toasted waffle, roast pumpkin puree, candied apple and shallots
– Twice cooked beef brisket with smoked mushrooms, blue cheese and potato crush
– Kansas City baby back lamb ribs with smoked tomato chutney, and potato crush with fennel salt
– Char-grilled New York steak with seasoned kipflers, salsa verde, golden fried onion rings and duck fat aioli
– strawberry milkshake
– Dr Pepper

Ambience:
A fun and relaxed atmosphere with cool wall prints and neon lights. A retro American diner where you can enjoy milkshakes seated on the bar stools or get cozy in the big booths with wooden panelling – this place seems to be suitable for both families and couples on dates ūüôā

Service:
Friendly service even towards the end of the night when they were probably wanting to close up!

The Details: 
Loved the beautiful stroll along the river to get to this place. The archways covered in vines that lined the pathway made our night time stroll even prettier (the ferris wheel and lights from the Night Noodle Market were already a treat!). The ribs had quite a bit of fat on them so much so that hubby left almost half his meal on his plate which, isn’t normal. He totally had dish envy with my delicious crispy fried duck!  Southbank Brisbane South Side Diner

Chasing Father’s Day lunch

The Urban Ma TGIFTGIF Parmesan meatballs

Father’s Day lunch at TGIF
Forest Hill Chase Shopping Centre

What a Sunday adventure! We got the¬†address mixed up¬†and went to the wrong TGIF – Doncaster instead of Forest Hill Chase shopping centre. But all was good in the end and D got to have a meat-filled Father’s Day lunch with his YeYe (Chinese for grandfather!) and his uncles, aunty and cousin Will at TGIFriday’s. Thank goodness for the online menu – I looked it up on the drive there and sent a message to my sister-in-law so she was able to order for us!

A family friendly atmosphere with high chairs and change facilities for the babies and toddlers. Also situated next to the games and movies so D was free to run around afterwards. The staff were friendly and happily refilled our lemon, lime bitters and made sure we were happy with our meals. Now I just have to eat right for the rest of the week and get  my running shoes on!

Parmesan Meatballs – Three breaded meatballs smothered in marinara, melted Monterey Jack, Parmesan & Romano. Topped with fresh tomato-basil bruschetta
Jack Daniels Mixed Grill – Crispy Shrimp, Half-Rack of Ribs, Chicken
Baby Back Ribs РSlow-cooked baby back pork ribs basted in Tennessee BBQ sauce, then fire-grilled. Served with seasoned fries and ginger-lime slaw
