Breakfast Sized Adventures - Bungalow 4171 - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

After all of my bold promises about visiting cafes whilst we were on holidays, we barely visited any. Mainly due to the fact that every morning I kept saying ‘Look, I can make us a nice breakfast. We don’t need to spend that money – we just blew heaps on the house.’ The planner vs the realist. There …

In The Tiffin Box VIII - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

There’s quite a lot in the Tiffin Box so best not to waste time and share what’s happening. Date Claimer! Paniyiri 2016 This year is a biggie for Paniyiri, the Brisbane Greek Festival, as it’s their 40th anniversary. They’ve come a long way from a small celebration within the Greek community to a huge festival …

Breakfast Sized Adventures - King Arthur Cafe - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

You’ll have oft heard me grumbling about not queuing for breakfast and the dire state of parking in popular hot spots around Brisbane on weekends. Well here’s an idea I hadn’t encountered…getting up early. I recently met up with some friends on Saturday morning to fuel up for a road trip out to the Scenic Rim. Whilst …

Cake For Breakfast? Yes We Can - Gertrude & Mabel - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

You face a big issue when heading to brunch these days. No parking. Brisbane must surely be the apartment capital of the universe. Where once there was one Queenslander (house) on a double block, there are now 15 units. Fifteen units with two cars per unit, half of which are parked on the street. Yes, parking …

Fish Lane Bistro - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

Brisbane has a lot to offer the local diner. Food festivals, new openings every week, a climate suited to footpath dining, hidden gems and elegant salons. The one thing it really doesn’t have is laneways. Oh sure, there are a couple of re-purposed loading docks and some ‘fake’ laneways that have been architected into new …

*** THIS VENUE HAS NOW CLOSED *** I am woefully behind in telling you about my dining out experiences, so it’s catch up time here at TIFFIN. This week it’s all about the restaurants! After a thwarted attempt to see Mad Max (hordes, queues, sold out sessions, diverted Jurassic World patrons…) Anthony and I found ourselves in …

Toro Bravo - A Great Little Secret (shhh...) - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

I like to think that I’m across what’s happening in Brisbane. I read the weekly digital mags, engage on Twitter, read the Brisbane Times every other day and generally collect bits and pieces along the way that gives me a pretty good idea of what’s hip and happening. So how is it that Toro Bravo …

Big, Fat Deal - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

A few weeks ago I finally visited Fat Noodle, one of Luke Nguyen’s ventures outposted to the Treasury Casino in Brisbane. It opened to much fanfare 12 months ago but has had mixed reviews. When I say mixed reviews, I’m being generous. A quick tour of sites such as Urbanspoon and Yelp! consistently provide poor …

At The Kong Foo Sing - Kwan Brothers - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

The other night we took a trip down memory lane and listened to Siouxsie & The Banshees ‘Once Upon a Time’ & ‘Twice Upon a Time’ greatest hits. The first track of the first CD is the exuberant Hong Kong Garden. From the opening notes of the xylophone and cymbals crashing everywhere to the wonderful …

Lunch Sized Adventures Malaysian Style - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

Over the years I’ve waxed lyrical about my love of Malaysian food. One of my favourite dishes (Malaysian or otherwise) is Char Kway Teow and if you’ve been reading along for any length of time, it makes regular appearances in TIFFIN. Another fave is the curry and flat bread meal known as Roti Canai. Indeed …

Lunch Sized Adventures - Indian Chaat - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

We’ve all been there. You’re out and about and planning to grab a quick bite of lunch between activities and errands. Because of detours and dallying, the number of ‘quick bite’ options dwindles as the lunch window closes and suddenly you’re in a dining no man’s land. Cafes have shut, sold out or are not offering …

The Loaded Shot * Read about it at TIFFIN - bite sized food adventures - Brisbane Restaurants, Bite Size Food, Restaurant Bar, Ethnic Recipes

Local &/or General - The Loaded Shot - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

Though it’s been a while since I have written a Local &/or General post, there’s plenty of activity in the suburb. The set of shops at the local express bus stop is a day by day proposition for most businesses. Once upon a time it would have been a thriving terminus for trams travelling from …

Bacon Ice Cream for Brunch? You Betcha! - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

Dessert restaurants were a thing in the 90’s. They were places you went after going to the theatre or movies or for a romantic date. The selection was general variations on chocolate mousse and cheesecake. They had a certain appeal but over time this appeal waned as it dawned on people that there is only so …

Lunch Sized Adventures - Greek on Cav - Tiffin - bite sized food adventures

Originally we were going to a Nepalese restaurant to celebrate my niece’s 21st but they were closed for renovations. Jackie’s ‘plan B’ was to travel to the other side of the globe and head to Greek On Cav, very handily located in the suburb next to ours. So, we found ourselves on a sunny Sunday lunch …
