Dip fragrant Falafel Balls ($9.00) into their dukkah-and-cayenne-pepper-spiced yoghurt dipping sauce that is silky smooth with just a hint of something lemony. Ditch the friend and keep this all to yourself.
Forget the diet as you munch your way through grilled fingers of Serrano Ham & Buffalo Mozzarella ($11.00) oozing its soft golden perfection across crisp and crunchy Turkish bread engorged with butter infused with a hint of garlic.
Held together by lightly toasted and crunchy Turkish bread, and offset by a side of rustic chips, this dish is Modern Aussie at its best. The Gourmet Chicken Burger ($15.90) is constructed from tender char-grilled chicken breast, avocado, tomato, red onion and lettuce greens, topped with a savoury beetroot chutney and creamy mayonnaise. Yum.
You may have guessed. This is not your typical Shingle Inn.
This current incarnation of Shingle Inn at Oracle is only 11 weeks old, and the baby is clearly thriving. The savvy new franchisees, Paul and Dawn, and their two daughters, have set out to provide something special that suits the clientele attracted to the area. Their menu is an almost carbon copy of what has proven so successful in Brisbane's trendy Oxford Street at Bulimba, and it is appealing to patrons here in Broadbeach.
Menu items are marked as gluten free (GF), milk free (MF), healthy living (HL), and suitable for vegetarians (V).
The quality and freshness of their menu is unmistakeable, as all produce is sourced from local suppliers whenever possible, and fresh supplies of all baked goods arrive direct from the Capalaba bakery every morning.
