Venues with standard kitchens: that's so last year. Bars with street food options: that's more like it. Southside Tea Room, Death Valley and Red Robin Supper Truck did it, and now the Brightside and Lucky Egg are too. Yes, it's officially Brisbane's latest trend.
From June 25, the Brightside will say goodbye to the toasted sandwich menu punters have come to know and love, and will say hello to fried chicken goodness served from a shipping container. Burgers and wings are the main attraction, of course — all buttermilk coated, free range and locally sourced.
That means slabs of chicken topped with American cheddar, garlic pickles and spinach, or with Hellmann’s slaw and honey mustard sauce — whichever takes your fancy. Wings come with a choice of blue cheese, honey mustard, chipotle mayo, Asian style kimchi mayo and ketchup. If they taste as good as they sound, all other fast food poultry places will soon be nothing but a memory.
