  • Got plans for this week? On Wednesday it's National Tequila Day. Why not celebrate at La Diosa Mexicana @circle_on_cavill  Did you know that the best tequila has a national Mexican government seal of approval? It's made from blue weber agave, aged and distilled, tequila from the best area classified like 'grand cru'. Don't waste time on the rest, just head for the best margaritas and tacos @ladiosamexicana_gc
  • Holy moly! Can you believe this dessert at @ladiosamexicana_gc @circle_on_cavill #surfersparadise?  It's a flaming cactus... Literally! A cactus-shaped caramel corn and chilli chocolate ice cream Bombe Alaska, it's doused with smoky mezcal tequila and set alight at the table! Amazing to watch and tastes great too! What a special birthday 🎂 cake it would make! Cool bananas! @ladiosamexicana_gc #flamingoandcactus Review on website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • Loving this winter sunshine @5b2fbakehouse #chirnpark Girl time catching up with @barbphilip #holidaytime
  • PIPIT: "Simple, beautiful food with layers of complexity, this is contemplative dining begging us to pay attention to subtle nuances of flavour and texture." Read our full review of Pipit on foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • When you're craving that sweet, but not too sweet treat mid morning, head to Bam Bam Bakehouse for their Creme brulee tart, specially created by Head Pastry Chef Aurelio Gulino using CSR specialty sugars. Its short, biscuity base is filled with luscious caramelised coconut sugar patisserie cream, flamed off on top for a crisp, cracking layer of brulee. So delicious, it will be staying on their menu for some time to come 😋! 📷 @lukemarsdenphoto
  • If you're up at Runaway Bay, pop into Klein's Coffee Bar and Grill for a snack. They do Tradie Burgers for $11, lunch specials, such as our Smoked salmon and capers on Turkish bread or Fish, chips and salad, all with a view of the Runaway Bay Marina.
  • Loving the depth of flavour of Nahm Kitchen and Bar's food in @theoasisbroadbeach Pop along at lunchtime and just try one dish!
  • We don't often think of pairing wine with Thai food, but at Nahm Kitchen and Bar sommelier Carlos will help you do just that! How gorgeous does this blushing combo look: Tempura prawns with a gorgeous rosé. @nahmkitchenandbar @theoasisbroadbeach
