Top One Seafood Chinese Restaurant | Southport

Having just arrived in Brisbane on New Year’s Eve, we had to drive about an hour to reach our accommodation near the Gold Coast. While looking for a Coles or Woolworths nearby to do some grocery shopping for the next few days, we were this close to having fast food again for dinner when were able to find a Chinese restaurant in the same shopping centre complex. Located in Australia Fair Shopping Centre, Top One Seafood Chinese restaurant is situated in a prime location with a lot of exposure for tourists or anyone living down near the Gold Coast.

Pho Hung |Southport

There’s nothing like tucking into some good Vietnamese food that reminds you of food from home when you are in a faraway place like Queensland. And by home, I mean Springvale. When my family and I were up on the Gold Coast, breakfast was a conglomeration of leftovers, while deciding what to have for dinner was always a tricky affair. Luckily, we were able to find a nice Vietnamese restaurant close by to where we were staying and when the craving something that resembled for home cooked food was strong, we would stumble into Pho Hung.

Surfers Sandbar |Surfer’s Paradise

On our last morning on the Gold Coast, we decided to eat out for breakfast before our 2pm flight back to Melbourne. As we walked along the beach towards Surfer’s Paradise we came across Surfers Sandbar, an establishment that offers an all you can eat buffet breakfast every day from 6:45am until 11:30am for only $17.00 per adult. For children, the cost is even less than that and varies with age. With a view along the Esplanade facing out towards the beach, what was there not to like?

Dundees |Cairns

When my family and I went to Cairns as part of our Queensland holiday trip, we decided to celebrate my mum and dad’s anniversary dinner at Dundees, a seafood restaurant along the waterfront by the docks. Being highly recommended by a friend of a colleague and the internet, I had come with great expectations of the place we were about to have dinner at. And so, it didn’t come to a surprise to find the place fully booked until later in the evening when a last minute attempt to make a booking on the night we arrived in Cairns.

Royal Stacks

Last week, I was invited by Dani Zeini and partners to take an exclusive first look at their new burger venue, Royal Stacks. From the people that brought you Dandenong Pavillion, Grand Trailer Park Taverna and Easeys (just to name a few), there were high expectations all round for the quality of their burgers throughout the night. Presenting American style burgers with a Melbourne twist, Royal Stacks is now open and is located on Collins St in the CBD for all to access and enjoy.

Scroll Ice Cream

If the last week can be of any indication of hot you can expect it to be in Melbourne this summer then I say, bring it on! After our first little Hawker Hall dining adventure, we went to check out a new ice cream pop up store that just opened on High St. For people who have never seen or heard about the concept of rolled ice cream before, the novelty of having your ice creamed made to roll up in front of you can be pretty cool.
