Late night diners in Brisbane have hit the jackpot with chef Luke Nguyen's stunning eatery Fat Noodle serving up delectable Pan Asian dishes night and day from its grand colonial home in the Treasury Casino.
Not only is this the place to grab a pork congee at 11pm or a pre-theatre Mee Goreng but it makes an unbeatable place for a post mall crawl city lunch. With dishes hovering around $20, menu must-tries are Luke's signature Fat Pho Noodles of Angus sirloin, brisket, Chilli, Thai basil and rice noodles in a 20 hour broth, the seafood-based Singapore Laksa, Wok-tossed Angus beef with lemongrass, vermicelli noodles, nuts and Vietnamese herbs and the Atlantic Salmon Sashimi.
All meals come with a heavy earthen pot of jasmine tea and as well as a small boutique wine list, there's bottled and draught beer and a refreshing range of Asian style drinks including young coconut juice, ginger or sour plum lemonade, lychee and lemon soda or Vietnamese ice coffee.
Just as good as the food is the setting – sit on the arcaded verandah over Reddacliff Place (ideal for people watching), pull up a seat in the gorgeous communal room backed by a bar with back-lit paper feature wall or be seated in the grand dining room under the 3000+ chopsticks hanging garden.
Worth noting: with the extended hours and at just a short stroll across Victoria Bridge from QPAC Fat Noodle makes a great pre or post theatre diner.
