When you can’t decide what cuisine is going to scratch your food itch, a wander down some of these Brisbane food streets might solve the problem.  Here you’ll find a vibrant atmosphere and plenty of choice.  You won’t be hungry for long! Here’s my Brisbane food guide on where to find a tasty meal.

1-Railway Parade, Darra

If you feel like authentic Asian food, Darra certainly has plenty of options with a strong selection of Vietnamese, Chinese and Asian restaurants.

2-Mains Road, Sunnybank

Another Asian hotspot, Sunnybank Plaza runs food tours to help visitors explore the different types of restaurants on offer. Eat your way through Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese and general Asian restaurants.

James Street is an urban food epicentre with bars and restaurants back to back.

There’s always something happening here so head down and dine on Italian at Bucci, modern Australian at Harveys, middle eastern cuisine at Gerard’s Bistro, fabulous cakes at Jocelyn’s Provisions,  pizza at Tinderbox Kitchen, and the best burgers at Ribs & Burgers.

4-Nash Street, Rosalie

A much loved local’s haunt, this busy corner stretch is always busy around feeding time.

Work your way through the numerous options but do try my favourites – Sing’s Asian Kitchen, Il Locale, Rouj Modern Lebanese and Moga Izakaya and Sushi.

5-Latrobe Terrace, Paddington

This food street starts off as Latrobe Terrace, morphs in to Given Terrace and eventually ends up as Caxton Street.

One thing that doesn’t change is the quality and variety of the restaurants along the way.

Try Montrachet,  Shouk,  The Kettle & Tin and Remy’s.

6-Macarthur  Avenue, Hamilton

You get a double food whammy here on Friday and Saturday nights with both the Eat Street Markets and the restaurants of Portside Wharf.

During winter Eat Street Markets opens on Sundays too.

7-Oxford Street, Bulimba

Catch the ferry to Oxford Street and walk from one end to the other to find coffee shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, juice bars, pizzerias and more.

8-Logan Road, Woolloongabba

Curled around the top of Logan Road, just opposite the Gabba Cricket Ground is a wide selection of restaurants and cafes including Desmond & Molly Jones, Crosstown Eating House, The Catbird Seat, Pearl Café and Canvas.

9-Little Stanley Street, South Bank

Little Stanley Street in South Bank has one of the highest concentrations of dining options in Brisbane.  River Quay offers excellent dining with a river view, Little Stanley Street is almost wall-to-wall restaurants,  and there’s even more to discover at South Bank Parklands and the Stanley Street Plaza.

10-Station Road, Indooroopilly

There’s a multitude of surprisingly good food choices inside Indooroopilly Shopping Centre but the highlight is definitely the strip along Station Road which contains some exciting restaurants and food options.

My top food picks include Harajuku Gyoza, Nantucket Kitchen and Bar, Nitrogenie, Ole Fuego and Pig N Whistle.
