Southside bistro is an exciting new eatery in Sunnybank mixing modern contemporary cuisine with asian-fusion. After seeing many rave reviews about the food we were keen to try it out ourselves.
We were spoiled for choice by a unique tapas menu that includes dishes such as fiery chili beef brisket, quinoa fried rice, slow cooked lamb belly ribs, haloumi, mint and carrot fritter and lamb skewers to name a few. The restaurant also boasts a delicious sweets and beverage menu – so make sure you leave room for dessert.
For us, the double cooked pork belly burger was the stand out, it was a generous serving and the pork belly was cooked to perfection. All of the burgers on the menu are served on a Chinese milk bun which was light and fluffy – a nice change to traditional burger buns.
We visited on a busy friday night and even though most tables were full our food was served promptly.
The kitchen closes at 11pm and the restaurant closes its doors at 12am making it the perfect place to grab a late night sweet treat.
Here are the dishes we tried:
Cumin spiced lamb skewers
coconut prawn beignets
Double cooked pork belly burger
Drinks: Lychee, mint, lime / Raspberry
