Adventure calls: the weirdest food items you'll end up loving
But with so many delicious Chermside food items on offer and nowhere near enough time to try them, we’ve put together a list of our favourite menu items that will take you by surprise.
Hash Brown Waffles
The folk at Bootlegger serve up a delectable menu of American eats from their smokehouse and grill, including their truly original hash brown waffles. Accompanied by a flavoursome chipotle dip, these crisp potato-ey waffles can be enjoyed alongside a main dish or as a standalone starter. Sunday cheat meal sorted.
The wonderfully weird Pina Asada is every bit as exotic as its name suggests. It’s one of the Spanish desserts (postres) on the menu at Hermosa, and it features charred pineapple with citrus chilli caramel, topped off with sour cream ice cream. The combination of sweet, sour and spicy is not one you often see in desserts, but it’s what makes this sweet Chermside food an absolute winner.
Beetroot & Cacao Latte
From the superfood experts at Coco Bliss, this latte will do as many favours to your health as it will to your tastebuds. Packed with powerful antioxidants, the beetroot and cacao latte is said to improve oxygenation to the brain and body, acting as a natural mood enhancer and antidepressant. As for the magical ingredients that do this? Organic raw cacao, beetroot powder, ginger and pink rock salt are combined to make a drink packed with flavour. This latte has definitely earned its place in a list of weird foods, but trust us, it’s delicious.
Rice Bubble Prawns
Similar to coconut prawns, this seafood dish by Pho Vietnamese is simple, crispy and delicious. Grab a plate of three rice-bubble coated prawns as an entree before trying a signature bowl of Vietnamese noodle soup. Finish off with your choice of bubble tea for dessert and you’ll have yourself one delicious meal at Pho Vietnamese.
Much like the rest of the fare served at Motto Motto, seaweed fries are a creative take on Japanese cuisine. These shoestring fries have a light but totally moreish coating of seaweed salt, making them a much more interesting alternative to everyone’s favourite side dish. The best part? You can try this wacky Chermside food for less than five bucks!
