When it comes to lining Fortitude Valley with new eateries, King Street is the revamped inner-city space that keeps on giving. The stretch of roadway between Gregory Terrace and St Paul's Terrace has already welcomed The George Bar and Bistro, GG Espresso and Fat Dumpling, announced that Italian restaurant Il Verde and Greek-focused The Lamb Shop will be joining them, and unveiled plans for a new creative and dining precinct. Now, they're adding Brisbane's first Sushi & Nori and a Korean fried chicken van to the mix.

Both arrive courtesy of restauranteur Sunny Lim, who is expanding an existing venture and debuting a new one with her King Street stores. First up, Sushi & Nori will see executive chef Leo Park running the kitchen. The Kaiseki sushi train will feature simple, natural dishes, including the delicious-sounding truffle tuna tartare, within a restaurant decked out to nod to traditional Japanese architecture and evoke a tea-room feel. The best part: it's now open.

In the latter's case, prepare to greet Hello Chicken with an eager smile and a hungry stomach when they start cooking up fried chicken, Korean-style, from a Kombi van. Food-wise, they'll be serving special recipes such soy and garlic, 'snow cheese', carbonara and crazy hot chilli, and cranking out tunes. And, their juicy chook pieces will also be available to takeaway, although hanging around and soaking up Brissie's newest dining destination is definitely recommended.
