Next Door Kitchen & Bar – lunch

Southbank offers opportunities for many choices in the type of cuisine you’d like to sample.   Today was an enjoyable relaxed lunch, catching up with friends.   With a compact menu which still caters for most tastes, we easily could find something for everyone.

Ggreeted by bubbly staff as soon as we stopped to view the outside menu, it did not take long to reach the division and dine here.   Before long, our group was seated, with menus in hand and water delivered to the table.

One of the drinks at the table, was a cocktail delivered in most intriguing silver ware.  Not only was this very heavy,  Hubby was shown how the top lifted from the base to drink.   This is all in keeping with the 1920’s, prohibition era themed restaurant.    Their beverage list makes for entertaining reading with Homemade Hooch, Moonshine, Bootleggers and Giggle water being among some of lingo used.

 Meals followed within a reasonable time frame, my choice for today was Calamari.   Served with a delightful coconut lime dressing and Vietnamese salad, this salt & pepper style calamari dish was most enjoyable.   Nice to enjoy a non stringy or rubbery calamari.  

Another meal was this sharp looking, packed full burger., with fries.   Certainly well enjoyed.

Hubby today chose the Gangster chicken wings, accompanied by a blue cheese sauce and chilli peanuts.   The combination of flavours, I’m told, made for an enjoyable meal.   Southbank never fails to deliver on entertainment or dining.   With plenty to choose from, remember to keep Next Door Kitchen & Bar in mind.   

We have enjoyed breakfast here before and I’m sure dinner would not disappoint ether.  Remember to check this one out when you’re in the Little Stanley Streey area, we have never had a problem here.  

Next Door Kitchen & Bar – South Brisbane

You really are spoilt for choice in the Southbank/South Brisbane area.  We have visited a myriad of eateries in this precinct, some on numerous occasions.   However, this visit, we chose a new venue.  Next Door Kitchen & Bar.  The view from inside or outside the restaurant is eye-catching in itself.  Pops of colour along the Southbank walkway hang about in front of the city skyline.

Menu choice for breakfast, had enough to cover a variety of tastes, not an extensive menu, but enough.  One at our table chose the ‘Tommy Gun, It’s loaded’ meal, all the while declaring ‘I won’t eat the BlackPudding…’   Well apparently the black pudding was fine, nothing like he thought it would be.  

I’m not usually too tempted with smoothies and juices, only because I do find they have a tendency to make me feel full and not enjoy an actual meal.  However, on this occasion, the celery, spinach, kale and cinnamon mix sounded different and tempting.  Let’s give it s go!  Quite refreshing, mainly tasting like celery and cinnamon.  Not too bad really, although, for my personal taste the cinnamon was a bit over powering. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy this, as I definitely did.

Staff here were friendly, attentive and happy to assist.   My choice of the Filled field mushroom was not ever going to disappoint. A delightfully presented and enjoyable dish.

Look forward to returning to this venue  in the future.  Perhaps we should be looking at an apartment in this area, hmmm, one would be spoilt for dining and activity choice!

Check out the scrambled egg & salmon dish below,  another delightful meal.    Keep up the good work…!
