Tucked behind Harveys Bar and Bistro on the bright lights of James Street, Tinderbox Kitchen is staking a claim as one of the city's pizza frontrunners. Using free-range pork, Moree stoneground-wheat and seasonal produce, Tinderbox ticks many boxes when it comes to tasty ethical pizza.
Crowd favourites, including mushroom arancini and pork and veal meatballs, kick off proceedings. Mains include a small selection of Italian classics, such as duck pappardelle and veal scallopini, but we know you're really here for the pizza.
Expect authenticity here — bases are crisp and smoky courtesy of the custom-made woodfired oven. The toppings are simple yet inspired, including 'nduja, roasted corn and handmade ricotta. The Tinderbox signature sports Mooloolaba prawns, chilli and zucchini. Adjacent to the Palace Centro cinemas, Tinderbox Kitchen is an ideal pre-movie stop-off.
