Which suburb do you call home?
Fave place to stop, relax for 20 mins and enjoy a morning cuppa? And what treat is on the plate beside your hot bevvie?
I’m a bit indulgent with my morning cuppa. A Lindt Mocha from Elk Espresso is my go-to. And when the weather’s great, I love sipping on it by the beach. Beside it would probably be the Aged Cheddar & Corn Beef Croquettes or the Pork Belly Waffles from their current winter menu.
Fave Gold Coast casual dining location? What’s on the menu?
Lucky Bao has always been an all-time fave. I love their spicy tuna crackers, wok fried xo mushrooms and lamb ribs. I’m also an avid Taco Tuesday-er, and the newly opened La Diosa Mexicana in Surfers serves up a mouthwatering fiesta!
You’re planning a fun, local night out with your mates? Which three locations top your list and why
Miami Marketta: There’s plenty of food option from pizzas to baos to paella, so it’s great for even the pickiest eater. Plus, with an extensive bar selection and a live band performing, its good vibes all around! 2. Island Rooftop Bar: It’s centrally located, boasts amazing cocktails and great views. Perfect for if you want to hit the clubs after! 3. Mr. PPS Deli & Rooftop Bar: This hidden gem is often overlooked because it’s located in the city’s commercial district, but I think that’s what I love about it. Their menu is predominantly Italian (the best Margherita Pizza I’ve ever had!), and their drinks aren’t bad either.
Best local spot for family hangs and why?
Nothing beats a good old picnic on Burleigh Hill. The kids can enjoy the playground while the adults have a drink and watch the sun go down on the Gold Coast skyline. It doesn’t get much better than that!
