Science goes to Brisbane Australia. Our friends Dave and Jaquel have opened a stylish, modern cafe in the heart of South Brisbane. Their previous restaurants have been great but this one is a revelation! They offer a wonderful selection of traditional Spanish tapas and mains, with a few clever, tasty Mexican infusions. Their Sangria is delightful, light with lovely spices. They have a great selection of Spanish wines with a few aussie ones in there too. I had not seen their Spanish beers sold anywhere else in Brisbane – the Moritz was great. As a vegetarian, they had a great set of options including a black bean and salsa taco, goat cheese and pumpkin croquettes, spanish tortilla and a beautifully simple garbonzo bean and spinich dish.
For the meatier, definitely check out their Spanish ham – thinly sliced and as good as you’ll find in spain. Their steak plate comes with corn torillas that they make on the premises and traditional guacamole. The custard dessert finished off the night for us, leaving everyone satisfied. All in all I found this restaurant to be priced reasonably with excellent quality and great service.
They’re located at 154 Melbourne St in South Brisbane. Hours are M-F 12n-11pm, Sa 5:30pm-11pm. Granada website is here.
