Daniel Ward, whose Stables Craft Bar and Kitchen is already
a hot spot in Ascot, has teamed with hospitality veteran
Maris Cook to open Hello Please in the funky Fish Lane
at South Brisbane. Influenced by the likes of Melbourne’s
Saigon Sally and Kong BBQ, and LA’s E.P Eating House,
the vibe is fun and casual – the setting a Drapl-decorated
shipping container – while food is a take on Vietnamese
street eats – fresh-made bao, dumplings, rice-paper rolls and
banh mi are signature dishes. Eat-in or take away but we
suggest hanging out to sip one of the specialty cocktails.
Hello Please, Fish Lane, off Grey Street, South
Brisbane. Open Tuesday to Sunday midday until late.
Who doesn’t like a rowdy Mexican banquet and Mucho
Mexicano, recently opened in South Bank and Milton, is
just the place, designed for shared dining on quesadillas,
burritos, build your own tacos, tostadas and more. Choose
from slow-cooked lamb, chipotle braised brisket, crispy
pork belly, or wagyu, truffled chicken and Moreton Bay bug
ingredients. And you can’t miss the Margarita bar.
Mucho Mexicano, Shop 15, Little Stanley Street, South
Bank and 4/55 Railway Terrace, Milton. Open 7 days for
lunch and dinner, breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays.
Head chef Buphen Gurung brings a taste of
the Turkish food bazaar to leafy Hawthorne
at Downtown Istanbul. Turkish pizzas, pides
and gozleme, a traditional hand-made Turkish
flatbread filled with toppings such as sweet potato,
spinach and feta and grilled, are menu staples
but specialties such as Pilic Sehrazat (a charcoal-
grilled chicken breast, with beetroot and creamy
mushroom sauce) and Ali Nazik (roasted eggplant,
capsicum, onion and garlic with yoghurt and a
choice of meat) are highlights. The bevvy of choice
– their special Sangria by the jug, of course.
Downtown Istanbul, 4/274 Hawthorne Road,
Hawthorne. Open 7 days lunch and dinner
plus weekend breakfast.
