restaurants by cuisine

Hankering for some finger lickin’ American buffalo wings, authentic Spanish tapas, fresh-baked Ethiopian injera, Chinese dumplings or hearty German sauerbraten? Or perhaps a tasty Korean BBQ, Brazilian stew, Iranian Fasanjan, Swiss fondue or Peruvian style paella...Brisbane’s multicultural eateries form a melting pot of over 35 cuisines, as compiled alphabetically in the list below. While most are random need-to-know pop-ups, some are concentrated in their neighbourhood precincts: Sunnybank being the hub for authentic Chinese and South-East Asian cuisine and Vietnamese restaurants concentrated in the Inala and Darra area south. Meantime Moorooka holds the mantle of Little Africa with its Eritrean, Ethiopian, Somalian and Sudanese eateries and traditional Italian is largely found in the inner city, predominantly New Farm.
