  • What do you eat for lunch in St Petersburg, Russia? Needing fortification after the Hermitage Museum, crepes with roe, beef stroganoff and potato pancakes with cream fill up the cold corners. All in a day's research with the team! #stpetersburgrussia #foodgoldcoastontour #russianfood #caviar
  • What can you expect from a Michelin starred restaurant? Stars are awarded to restaurants (not chefs, as many believe)...places worth travelling to visit, and we had come across the world! We experienced luxe surrounds, gorgeously plated exquisite food and attentive cordial service when we lunched at Marchal, d'Angleterre Hotel, Copenhagen. Take a look...
  • Discovering smorrebrod in Copenhagen at Torvehallerne Market in Norreport, Copenhagen. Delicious street food... But not at street food prices! #copenhagenfood #foodgoldcoastontour #smørrebrød
  • Do you ever get stuck mid-week wanting a cheap but tasty lunch? We continue our LUNCH DEALS series with a list of restaurants serving lunch for $10 - $12pp. Read the article on our website foodgoldcoast.com.au #lunchdeal #lunchdeals
  • We were ecstatic at being asked to preview Kokum's Mother's Day menu. What an amazing craftsman Chef Sabir Merchant is! Each one of the dishes was pure delight, his modern Indian cuisine taken to new heights every time we try it. This 6 dish, 3 course meal with a complimentary peach bellini is a must if you have a foodie mum! #mothersday2019 Bookings at @kokumrestaurant @marinamirage #goldcoast
  • Baoing down to Mano's on Tedder, where we love spending rainy Friday afternoons eating bao and dumplings handmade by Chef Woody Zen, drinking a wine or cocktail, and chin wagging to the 'publican' of this fine establishment, Mick Ellison. Bring on the weekend! #fridayfunday @manostedderave #bringiton Review on website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • There's that moment of anticipation when you dip your hot churro into the melting chocolate and then bring it to your mouth...the first bite of #churro is always the best!
It's a party 🎉 dancing on your tastebuds.
Make sure you get a mouthful @spanishdoughnutsgc #surfersparadise
