Hunter and Barrel is one of the restaurants at the new hub in Whitfords Shopping Mall. It occupies quite a large space with an open kitchen and friendly staff. Every time I had previously tried to book, the restaurant was pretty much fully booked, so it was nice to finally get a table.
The ‘barrel’ menu is a very impressive wine, beer and spirits list with seasonal specials and tempting cocktails. The ‘hunter’ menu showcases steak, ribs and skewers, with a few sharing ‘feast’ options and several hearty pub fare options like pie, lamb shoulder, and schnitzel. there is a vegetarian skewer options, but this is not really a venue for non-meat eaters. (NB Since this original post, Hunter and Barrel have introduced some more vegetarian friendly menu options).
For starters we shared (between three of us) some chicken wings and flatbread with dukkah.

The chicken wings were outstanding (6 in a portion), very very meaty and with a light honey glaze that wasn’t too sweet. They were perfectly cooked. The flatbread and dukkah was also nice with quality olive oil to dip.
For mains, ribs were the order of the day and I chose half a rack of pork ribs with chunky chips and aioli and a side of pickled red cabbage.

Everything on the platter was incredibly good – nice fall-apart ribs with a great bbq glaze, smooth aioli, crispy fluffy chips and lovely pickled red cabbage with sweet sultanas.

My male companions chose the beef short ribs – one portion with chilli, and the other with bbq sauce

They also enjoyed the mushroom dipping sauce for the chips

All in all it was a really tasty meal, very fulfilling, and we left with happy tummies. This is definitely the best rib venue in the Northern suburbs.

Les Bubbles is an imposing building on Wickham Street in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. It used to be a brothel, and has a downstairs bar with a jacuzzi tub for those who are brave enough to jump in.

In 2016 we were regulars here and the menu consisted of very little – steak and frites – but wow they know how to do steak and frites.

The meal usually started with a leafy walnut salad and bread, followed by a steak with frites and the sauce of your choice from:

  • Cafe de Paris
  • Bearnaise
  • Green Peppercorn and Cognac
  • Bordelaise

Steak is always perfectly cooked to your liking, good quality, and flavoursome, and the chips are great.

If you love a steak, this is the place to come to for a treat in Brisbane.
Oh and if you have vegetarian and pescatarian friends, there is usually a special on offer that will suit each diet.
