First, Tony Kelly and Scott Hoskins brought their delicious doughnuts to town. Then they decided that the city really could use some more burgers. Now, the folks behind Donut Boyz and Hello Harry are unleashing two new ventures upon Brisbane. We hope you like Asian street food and fried chicken.
No, both types of cuisine won't be available at one eatery; instead, Junk will serve up the former, and 2 Birds will focus on the latter. Like its predecessors, Junk heads down south after satisfying hungry stomachs on the Sunshine Coast. 2 Birds, however, is a new concept.
If you've been paying attention to Brissie's recent dining news, you can probably guess where Junk will be opening its doors in October. Prepare to grab crispy pork belly salad, Peking duck spring rolls, Korean fried wings, soft shell crab steam bao and hearty bowls of ramen from its two-storey digs in Fish Lane (where else?). The chain plans to expand to Toowoomba in September and Melbourne's Punch Lane in November as well.
As for 2 Birds, it's still looking for a space to call its own in Brisbane, though it'll open in Toowoomba next month. Once the poultry joint finds an ace location, it'll specialise in fried wings and pieces, and flame-grilled chicken sandwiches. Yep, you'll be able to eat chicken for days, although roasted corn on the cob and mac and cheese will also be available.
Find Junk in Fish Lane, South Brisbane, from October. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for more information. To stay up-to-date about 2 Birds' plans, head to their Facebook page as well.
