I love trying new places and it turns out so do many other Gold Coasters.
The latest place to try on the glitz beach strip is Hideaway Kitchen & Bar in Broadbeach.
These photos are from my iphone so I will have to go back during the day and take my camera.
Tonight is packed and it’s only the second week this new creation of Bine and Ex Nobby’s Arc owner has been open.
I recognise many of my favorite waitresses and bar tenders from around the coast and as expected the chef (ex Etsu) concocts amazing food bites.
The menu is extensive and delicious. I don’t think you can go wrong and it’s the place to lash out and be adventurous.
We try a variety of “street foods” which is the gist of the place.
We start with Beef Cheek Rendang done with coconut cream and Crispy Prawns with jalepeno salsa. Delicious and enough to wet our appetites. I want more.
I am a little overwhelmed with the menu to be honest and struggle to settle on one item so happily hand it over to my friends who have at least 2-3 things they all want to try.
Our tasters are followed by Pork Belly with apple and cabbage, served in lettuce cups and so much fun. I love getting down and dirty with food and having the sauces drip down my sleeve as I eat makes me feel alive and in love with food.
The Mooloolaba Prawns are delicious with Asian sauce and the boys fill up with a pad thai.
Lately I have become a big fan of cocktails . The Kama Sutra is devine. It’s a vodka, elderflower, lime concoction – elegant and not over the top.
The wine however takes the winning drink award tonight. It is a Tomich chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills and is served chilled to perfection.
Surrounding the incredible food action is a bustling vibe, loads of energy and movement. The restaurant does capture a “street” vibe. Clad with graffiti and funky umbrellas outside I feel like the Gold Coast is finally catching up with swankier and adventurous Asian districts like Hong Kong.
Oh and for some fun, have a drink on one of the bars funky swinging chairs. And I am sure you could pop in for a fun cocktail on your way to else where.
This is a definite place to book ahead as you won’t get a table.
Well done Scotty, you have made a winner.
