Great street food without the street
The Chow House, a haven for lovers of Asian street food, is located on James Street in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley. With a regularly changing menu based around fresh, seasonal ingredients, Chow House is a restaurant to return to over and over again. You can experience their diverse range of dishes for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week, or for dinner from Tuesdays to Saturdays.

We visited Chow House for dinner on a busy Saturday night, but despite the crowds, the service was particularly good. The menu is extensive, ranging from curry and noodles dishes, to their famous "Street Chow" (an amazing range of Asian style Tapas). The Peking duck with shallot pancake was delicious, followed by a great satay chicken, vegetable and pork bao, and chicken pot stickers. Unfortunately, we had to forgo the dessert menu which was extensive.

They have a great range of wine, cocktails, beer and spirits from various parts of the world. By sharing a bottle of wine and choosing the street chow option, we ended up having a very affordable dinner. It is also worth noting that they do hold functions and with a great atmosphere, it's worth thinking about.
