Chur Burger, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane

All the buzz about Chur Burger hyped up as soon as they opened their doors at the bottom of the new Tryp hotel in the Valley. With an anticipation through the social media pics, and also our never-ending burger adventure, we ventured out to Chur one night, to try it. A branch from Sydney, the much acclaimed Chur Burger has finally stepped into Brisbane soil, and maybe make a name for itself here too..

Midam Korean Charcoal BBQ, Sunnybank Hills, Brisbane

Midam Korean Charcoal BBQ is located at Sunnybank Hills, just behind Pinelands Plaza. They offer a wide range of Korean dishes, either a-la-carte or bbq buffet, though I think they specialize more on their Charcoal BBQ. From the outside, the restaurant may look small but when you step in, it is rather big.

Kushi Q, Hawken Drive, St Lucia, Brisbane

Kushi Q offers traditional Japanese dishes, both eat in and takeaway is available. Located on Hawken Drive, easy access for students especially. Came here for lunch with a friend of mine and wasn't sure of where to eat but wanted to go somewhere around St Lucia. Students do get 10% off by the way, so make sure you do show your ID. It was really empty when we came in, there was only probably only one table filled and that's it.

Made's Warung, Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia

Made's Warung aka. Warung Made is located in Seminyak and has been established since 1969, being one of the many favourite restaurants for locals, expats and tourists offering traditional Indonesian cuisine. Many people would recommend this restaurant and for those who like history, then this restaurant definitely has its own history. A western man who fell in love with the restaurant's owner's daughter. They do have their history in the restaurant in pictures in which you can see for yourself. A spacious restaurant with natural light and fresh air also shining upon the outdoor area, there is also a stage for events such as live performances. When we arrived, it was quite empty inside but since they had an outdoor and an indoor seating area, the outdoor area had a few diners though not as much as I thought there would be.

Nanny's Pavillion, Beachwalk, Kuta, Bali

Nanny's Pavillion is one of the few cafes in Beachwalk, Kuta in Bali. The place do give you somewhat a homey feeling and I have just realised that they do have quite a number of outlets around in Indonesia, each of them named under various rooms that you would typically have in a pavillion, such as Bedroom, Kitchen, Library, Sewing Room, Terrace, Barn, Playground, Laundry room and so on. This one here, in Beachwalk was there 'Barrel Storage', which is presented by their wooden interiors as well, as their counters being surrounded by barrels (see the photos below). Its concept is based on a French American pancake restaurant.

Bebek Tepi Sawah, Jalan Raya Goa Gajah, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

'Bebek Tepi Sawah' literally means 'Duck next to the rice fields'. It is definitely a must try restaurant if you are in Bali and wanting duck dishes. I would recommend coming to the Ubud branch instead of the other branch, just simply because of its location and being able to eat and enjoy the paddy fields backdrop. Although many of their dishes are quite delicious, when coming to a restaurant, I would rather choose and eat what the restaurant specializes in, instead of having other restaurants which other restaurants may have. So, here comes the quacks...

PJ's Steaks, West End, Brisbane

Philly cheesesteaks has gone back as far as we can imagine it to, reminds me of those street hotdog vendors in America in which you would see basically everywhere. Since the American feel has been booming here in Brissie, I do have to say, sometimes you don't really need the up-end restaurants to have a decent hearty or that American authenticity taste. Located in West End, PJ's Steaks do serve your freshly baked roll filled with rib eye fillet with assorted ingredients or toppings, and of course, topped up with cheese.

Himawari, Sunnybank Plaza, Sunnybank, Brisbane

so-called Chicken Karaage Curry
Oh Himawari, what happened? I remembered the first time I tried Himawari was in Elizabeth Arcade in the CBD, way back years ago. They have another branch which is in Sunnybank Plaza. We decided to come here for lunch, since we were wanting Japanese curry for lunch during the time. Unfortunately, it was disappointing...
