There's no shortage of cheesy places in this food-loving town of ours, but King Street's Il Verde just might be Brisbane's cheese central. Serving up pasta from a wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano has helped put the Bowen Hills eatery on the culinary map — and pairing that delicious delight with gooey raclette will keep it there.
Unsurprisingly, they're calling this tasty double Death by Cheese. If you're going to go, you may as well go doing what you love, or so the thinking goes. And, let's face it, you're going to love this. Take one cheesy favourite, then add another — what's not to love?
It all kicks off on March 1, with sittings at 6pm and 8pm, and then takes place every Tuesday and Thursday evening. Even better — this combo of pasta or gnocchi stirred up in a wheel cheese, wood-fired bread topped in melted raclette, a glass of wine and an Italian dessert will set you back just $55 per person.
