  • When you're craving that sweet, but not too sweet treat mid morning, head to Bam Bam Bakehouse for their Creme brulee tart, specially created by Head Pastry Chef Aurelio Gulino using CSR specialty sugars. Its short, biscuity base is filled with luscious caramelised coconut sugar patisserie cream, flamed off on top for a crisp, cracking layer of brulee. So delicious, it will be staying on their menu for some time to come 😋! 📷 @lukemarsdenphoto
  • If you're up at Runaway Bay, pop into Klein's Coffee Bar and Grill for a snack. They do Tradie Burgers for $11, lunch specials, such as our Smoked salmon and capers on Turkish bread or Fish, chips and salad, all with a view of the Runaway Bay Marina.
  • Loving the depth of flavour of Nahm Kitchen and Bar's food in @theoasisbroadbeach Pop along at lunchtime and just try one dish!
  • We don't often think of pairing wine with Thai food, but at Nahm Kitchen and Bar sommelier Carlos will help you do just that! How gorgeous does this blushing combo look: Tempura prawns with a gorgeous rosé. @nahmkitchenandbar @theoasisbroadbeach

  • Fresh and vibrant, the food of La Diosa Mexicana in Circle on Cavill is modern Mexican: small bites to party on, tacos for a quick lunch, margaritas to lead into the weekend and sangrias to prepare for the week ahead. @ladiosamexicana_gc @circle_on_cavill @visitsurfersparadise
  • There's no way a photo can convey the deliciousness of this dish, the Japanese Green Tea Noodle Salad at Ida's with a side of Salt & Pepper Tofu. Chock full of avo, edamame, slivered beans and snow peas, wakame and pickled ginger with a ginger miso dressing, to me it's heaven on a plate! Also loving the Kimchi waffle with spicy Asian watercress and peanut salad with tender karaage chicken side.
Out of this world! Do we really have to choose? @_idaskitchen #heavenonaplate #asianfusion
  • Hope you enjoyed World Chocolate Day! I am a sucker for Nutella dessert pizza from Arlo's Pizzeria, the home of 24-hour proved sourdough base. Who needs a special day to celebrate!
