Take the Wheel

On the first Wednesday of every month, you can tuck into creamy pasta served straight out of a parmigiano-reggiano cheese wheel.

There's no shortage of cheesy places in this food-loving town of ours, much to every dairy lover's delight. But King Street's Il Verde just might be the cheese haven of Bowen Hills — once a month at least.

Before the pandemic, the King Street spot would regularly serve up pasta from a parmigiano-reggiano cheese wheel. In fact, doing just that helped put the eatery on Brisbane's culinary map. Now, from Wednesday, August 3, that delicious dish is back and tempting in diners on the first Wednesday of every month.

Unsurprisingly, the venue is calling this tasty feast Take the Wheel. And, that cheese wheel pasta, which is served straight out of the wheel at your table, is just one part of the three-course $55 feast.

You'll also get polenta chips and wood-fired focaccia to start with, plus seasonal panna cotta served for dessert — and a house wine or schooner of beer as well.

Bookings are a must, for sittings between 5.30–7.30pm.
