At the ground level of Enclave, one of the recently completed residential complexes along the main drag of Bay Terrace, Haijime (meaning to begin) is a Japanese eatery offering beers on tap, Japanese street food, sushi, and delectable hot bites plated up with the flair and attention to detail that Japanese hospitality typically excels at.
While the full menu and the official opening haven't been announced, according to their Facebook page, the restaurant will stage a soft opening from the week beginning, 10th October, 2022.
Hajime is located at Cnr Charlotte and Bay Terrace
2. Munja Pizza
The venue will offer alfresco seating for 30 diners and occupies a prime spot in the heart of Wynnum, and is also in the process of applying for a liquor license. Munja Pizza is expected to open mid October
Munja is located at 82b Bay Terrace
3. Adelita Wine Bar
With the success of Tide on the Jetty (formerly Tide Wine Bar) in neighbouring Manly, there's no doubt there was a demand for Wynnum to have its own hallowed wine hall. The credentials behind the shopfitters and owner are impressive - with a resume of co founding Monocle Coffee, and Bulimba's Melrose, and fit outs Opa Bar and Mezza and Massimo Restaurant and Bar in Eagle St respectively.
The set-to-be emerald green themed Adelita, named after the owner's grandmother, will offer a wine list of more than 80 wines (including a house red and wine on Tap) and occupies the ground floor tenancy overlooking Greene Park and Wynnum Creek. The kitchen will create a range of small and larger share plates featuring modern Australian ingredients. Adelita is set to open mid November.
Adelita is located on the corner of Fox and Glenora Streets
4. D&W Republic
The venue will also offer food made to order prepared off-site at a nearby 'dark kitchen' through a QR ordering system. Details of an exact opening are scant, but D&W Republic is due to open before the end of the year.
D&W Republic is located at 64 Edith Street
5. Miss Mexicana
Who doesn't like the fun and frivolity of Mexican? Margies, chimichangas, guac, and all the nachos hit me please! Miss Mexicana has all the dishes you'd expect but also some of the more traditional and less familiar, including Pescado a la Tala (grilled Barramundi in lime and parsley sauce) and Carne Asada — a marinated chargrilled rump, with pico de gallo, rice, beans and salsa verde
With intense orange walls, Frida Kahlo cushions and cacti pots adorning walls and crannies everywhere, the cocktail menu is also impressive, with Miss Mexicana open to midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.
Miss Mexicana is open now and at 3/89 Bay Terrace
