Southbank. One of the delightful areas in the heart of Brisbane with so much to see and do. Including many which are totally free. Swim at the man made beach, enjoy a picnic and Sunday concert, stroll the extensive walkways, admire the many photo opportunities contained in this area or partake in a fitness class. All for free.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, then realise you forgot to pack a picnic basket, (oops!), now it’s time to choose from one of the many restaurants in the area.
This trip, we chose Obsession Restaurant & Bar. On a wet, dreary day, their menu looked to include dishes to satisfy the tastes of all our group. Asian style with the specials menu above providing choice enough without the main menu.
Service was prompt, polite and very helpful. Now we had chosen our lunch venue, it was nice to sit in a comfortable area, whilst watching others battle the rain. My choice today was the Hong Kong fried jasmine rice. Fresh ingredients made this dish, which was light, non spicy as well as very filling. I have to admit it was a struggle to the finish line, but the dish beat me today. I just couldn’t finish it all. Good value for the price. Hubby loved his Mongolian beef, which he had no trouble devouring. Still enough satisfy his hunger though, which is always a good thing! These beautifully fresh, lightly egg white battered king prawns tossed through Obsessions own aioli batter from the main menu, were a hit. Resting on a bed of coleslaw, and coated with a most palatable,non spicy, slightly sweet aioli sauce. A lot bigger than it looks in the photo, there were enough pawns for everyone to have a taste. Most enjoyable. Lastly this chicken curry chosen from the specials menu, was apprently mild, and easy to eat. Very tasty.
Another restaurant for you to try in the Southbank Precinct!
