Zullaz Bar & Eating Place

John and Allison Boswell have been in love with coffee all their adult lives. They met in a coffee shop, proposed in a coffee shop… so it was natural that, when Premiato Coffee became available, they would buy the roastery to pursue their passion.

Eight years later, they’ve added a restaurant to their holdings, extending their passion to the food industry with the purchase of Zullaz Bar & Eating Place in Burleigh.

Leaving the Sub-continentalal flavours of the former owners behind, John and Allison have put their own touches on the simple, internationally-influenced menu.

Using locally sourced meat that is antibiotic free, organic and free range, almost all dishes at Zullaz are gluten-free or have a gluten-free option.

From cheese platters to plates from sea, earth and land, there are a range of dishes to enjoy, most in two sizes, providing the option to share. Cape Grim Eye Fillet with steamed green beans, buttered kipfler potatoes with chimichurri and homemade gravy ($36) and Crispy skinned salmon with beans, sweet potato purée, balsamic cherry tomatoes in a citrus butter sauce ($32) – they’re classic favourite comfort dishes rather than ground-breaking cuisine.

Most dishes are Mediterranean-inspired, such as Spanish baby octopus ($16/$24), or the Italian-inspired warm vegetable salad with grilled feta and pine nuts dressed with olive oil and balsamic ($21), which is sure to please vegetarian diners.

Sizzling Duck is the exception to the menu. Inspired by the East, yet mild and aromatic, it’s cooked with star anise and cinnamon stick, served in a Rangoon spice and coconut sauce, laced with coriander and kefir (read Kaffir) lime ($29).

But even more than in its menu, it’s the appeal of Zullaz that stands out.

There are not many venues with appeal to older diners, but this is one. With the city’s post-retirement community expected to inject $3.5 billion into the local economy over the next five years, it’s certainly a market that bars and eateries need to consider.

Zullaz has great appeal to older diners, while still not alienating Gen Ys. Quiet, with ambient lighting, a stocked bar, various meal sizing and live music from 6 – 9pm on Thursday to Saturday, it’s a top drop-in spot for a range of age groups. Diners spread out across the arcade, far enough apart to give privacy to each table.

Thursday night is blues and jazz nights, Friday and Saturday acoustic guitar, and on Wednesday nights there are $10 tapas, $5 Coopers or Stone & Wood Pacific Ale on tap or rosé as you enjoy the music.

There’s plenty of parking behind the restaurant in Park Avenue parallel to James Street, the parking free after 5pm.

Most of all, Zullaz is a casual open-faced venue where you can relax in the atmospheric vibe without feeling rushed, enjoying a drink and nibbles with friends and maybe a meal with your partner.

This is a place to unwind, enjoy music, a glass of wine and conversation; a place with classic home-cooked food and, of course, Premiato coffee.
