South Bank played host to the festive Christmas Markets presented by Eat South Bank. An event boasting all things Christmas from twinkling lights, festive decorations, traditional puddings to carols as well as Adriano Zumbo‘s famous Macarons.
We were lucky enough to immerse ourselves in some of the best the extravaganza had to offer. Local businesses collaborated on dishes to create dishes that were not just mind blowing in taste, but were a spectacle on their own. Embracing the Christmas spirit was Nitrogenie Ice-Cream who paired themselves with Donut Boyz to create a marvel. Their collaboration birthed the Gingerbread Nitrogen Donut; a buttery brioche bun donut covered in gingerbread crumble and custard with a condensed milk syringe to sweeten.
Nitrogenie and Harajuku Gyoza also worked on an unexpected partnership creating the Crepe Cone Dessert. A crepe cone with nitro Nutella ice-cream sliced banana and a Harajuku dessert gyoza filled with chocolate and banana. So much goodness in one serving. The perfect way to indulge this Christmas whilst accommodating for the Queensland heat.
If you were after something a little more traditional, My Sweetopia was serving up a Vanilla Cupcake with Strawberry Frosting and a little Strawberry Jam surprise at the bottom.
Savoury options were also on the table at Pig & Kraut. The Brat and Iced Tea stall have combined forces to deliver options that are unmissable. We got to try the Cheese Brat with Sauerkraut and Onions served on a White Roll. Worked a treat with refreshing Ice Teas.
