A quiet contender for one of Brisbane's best restaurants, Kid Curry features a chic, minimalist and inviting interior with wood-panelled walls, polished concrete floors, ambient lighting and smooth jazz, while outside the giant fairy lit fig trees form an enchanted backdrop through the windows.
Dishes are designed to share and include starters such as Filipino-style ceviche with coconut milk, lime juice, chilli and exotic herbs; dry-fried king salmon with lemongrass, lime leaf and kampot pepper; marinated pork skewers, chargrilled with dipping sauce or flame grilled lamb with pickled onions and mint chutney.
For mains, there are delectable choices such as Butter Chicken (roasted chicken in smoked tomato and butter sauce); Massaman (tender beef cheek in rich spiced gravy and cucumber pickle); Choo Chee Goong (flash-fried prawns i red curry paste) or Rendang (confit duck in dry and savoury sauce with potato).
Desserts are equally scrumptious and not to be missed - try the heavenly Shrikhand Kulfi (cardamon yoghurt gelato, turmeric cream, pistachio and rosewater) or Roti Gulay (roti with banana, Thai tea ice-cream and chocolate ganache).
Not only do the Kid Curry folk know their food, they're also wine aficionados, so there's a cracking curated wine list to match including their own drops produced in conjunction with boutique wineries. The well-versed waiters can assist with choices too.
