If Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, or so the song goes, then July in Brisbane has to be the tastiest.
From the beginning of the month right through until early August, that's when Good Food Month takes over the city with a lineup that includes street food eats, a pasta party, unlimited mimosas and bloody marys, a dinner that's all about surf 'n' turf and a showcase of Brissie's up-and-coming young chefs. And like all good menus, they're just the appetisers.
Truffle degustations, four-course whisky feasts, lunch specials in some of the best spots around town — the list goes on, and includes long French-Vietnamese meals, cocktails and charcuterie, and a Queensland-focused tasting menu as well. Or nab some top wine from a pop-up cellar door, celebrate all things French at a Bastille Day midday meal or tuck into an endless supply of pizza. Whichever you choose, you won't be feeling hungry or thirsty afterwards.
