  • Some brekkie love from Doko Demo V at Burleigh. Loved these bao and the meals Chef Jared is putting on the table. Great locally ground organic coffee as well! @dokodemov #burleighheads Review on foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • "Cooking with fire🔥adds dimensions to flavour that you can't get any other way," say the chefs at The Lamb Shop. There's no better lamb than this - succulent and juicy, packed with layered smoky flavours of meat slow cooked over char. We didn't taste better in Greece! @thelambshop @oracle.broadbeach
  • Thinking lunch by the water? Then go to Quarterdeck Kitchen & Bar just behind Dreamworld. Warm welcome, amazing views and delicious food and wine...to be shared with the best of friends! @quarterdeckkitchen With planning, you could arrive by boat. Review and details on website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • Blendlove's Happy Hashies - truffled potato hash browns  with garden greens, kale-naise, coconut bakon, avocado and black sesame. It's plant-based food brimming with goodness 'of generous proportions' to misappropriate Alexander McCall Smith. @blendlove #southport Review on website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • How does the 'Great Aussie Picnic' fit into a 21st century lifestyle? We give you some great options - think bakeries beside the river, hillsides with views and pre-prepared picnics. There are lots of ways to get together.

  • There's lots of entertainment and noise upstairs at Westfield Coomera, so we settled into a peaceful indulgent lunch downstairs at Piato. Their Wood Fire Platter of grilled chicken, beef and lamb includes a Greek salad - a great deal to share between two or four people for $45. We topped up with burrata, grilled peaches and an interesting sweet potato baklava. Check it out. Sharing is caring @piatowoodfiredeli #westfieldcoomera #goldcoast Review on website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • Congratulations to Cafe All Sorts Kirra, one of GCB's Top 10 brekkie cafes for 2019 @cafe_all_sorts With great service and generous tasty food, it's a little gem! Pictured: Chocolate milkshake, Byron Bay Haloumi stack, Sweet potato, red lentil and kale fritters with avo, field mushrooms and cashew cream cheese. Review on website.
  • Here's a little look at what's behind our home plate. Despite a 600sq.m. canal-front block, we've planted garden, miniature fruit trees and lots of herbs. Who wants lawn! #myhomegarden #kitchengardens #herbgarden #goldcoastlife #plantbasedlife
