Pop-up food stalls from South Bank's favourite restaurants
South Bank's Regional Flavours Festival is described as "the Sunshine State on a plate" and is one of Brisbane's most popular free-entry food and wine festivals. While the focus is firmly on seeing, sampling and enjoying some of Queensland's best produce from all across the state, one of the festival's closer-to-home highlights is the eatSouthBank Street Stalls on Saturday 21 July and Sunday 22 July 2018, featuring dishes from some of South Bank's favourite restaurants.
South Bank is arguably Brisbane's most beloved dining hub and home to a treasure trove of highly popular restaurants, cafes and bars. It's a go-to dining destination for Brisbane locals and the place you're most likely to take your interstate guests. It has flavours, cuisines and food styles to suit everyone. That eclectic and tasty mix will be on display at eatSouth Bank with local eateries putting on a street show at pop-up market stalls along Little Stanley Street, with specially curated menus for the event.
Think of it as your very own progressive lunch or dinner where, for just $8 or less for each dish, you can pick up chicken wings here, marinated lamb there and cupcakes or cronuts under a canopy. There will be gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options available from a host of traders you've come to love. American, Asian, Greek, Italian, Lebanese, Mediterranean, Mexican, Modern Australian, Spanish, Turkish, Vietnamese cuisines will all be represented.
The eatSouthBank Street Stalls will be open from 10am to 5pm on 21 and 22 July so you can pace yourself and your sampling regime. Once you've had your fill you can wander over to the River Quay area for more food, wine and musical entertainment. The River Quay zone is open until 9pm.
