The Lamb Shop
The Broadbeach favourite brings their mouth-watering meat to Brisbane Showgrounds.
Eight-hour slow-roasted lamb shoulder. Jam-packed souvlaki filled with lamb, onion, mustard mayo and hand-cut chips. A Sunday lamb roast. In the '80s, they're all dishes Naomi Watts would've given up a date with Tom Cruise to eat. These days, they're staples at The Lamb Shop on the Gold Coast — and they've now headed up north to Brissie.
Anyone eager to devour hearty, spit-roasted, mostly lamb-centric meals should make their way to King Street where Fortitude Valley and Bowen Hills meet, with the Broadbeach eatery becoming the latest restaurant to make the revamped Brisbane Showgrounds their new home. All of the tasty items that have made them such a favourite on the Coast since opening first opening their doors in late 2014 are still on offer, with the exact same menu making the jump. The Lamb Shop is known for their modern take on traditional Greek offerings, as inspired by owner Peter Glouftis' memories of his childhood.
Those after something other than the form of meat mentioned in the restaurant's moniker can snack on char-grilled corn, prawns, octopus or sheeps' cheese, or tuck into chicken versions of their souvlaki and small plates. Their menu is simple — like their concept — but it's also oh-so-succulent and delicious. And it comes with the added bonus of allowing diners to watch their meat rotate over hot coals while they're waiting.
