Barbeku Charcoal & Grill (New Farm, QLD)
One of the most valuable things I've learned about blogging is that I don't have to post every picture I take. Some photos will definitely add appeal, especially on a food blog, but some will take away from the better ones. As a food blogger, sometimes it's difficult to do this, because I'm a firm believer that pictures (especially for food) are worth a thousand words, yet restaurants sometimes have the worst lighting - or I just get lazy and don't bring a camera (and then later regret it). What do you think? Is it better to have pictures to give readers an idea of what to expect, regardless of the quality of the photos?
Anyway, I woke up late this morning and had to rush to run some errands, but thankfully have a massage booked cause my back's been bothering me for quite a while. I made myself a ham quesadilla along with my daily apple, and rushed out.
New Farms seems to be the hub of all the places to eat around Brisbane, as even the little fast food-y places like Barbeku reside here. One of the non-cafe eateries around New Farm, Barbeku is a simple Turkish 'bistro' that serves kebabs, as well as some plates like Charcoal Lamb Shish.
I didn't have lunch, as I was studying and running errands, and so I had a late 'supper' at 3pm. I ordered the Chicken Kebab (9), which comes with all the usual works - tomatoes, lettuce, and free sauces to choose from (hummus, garlic, tomato, etc.). The kebab was nice and hot, and really fresh. The meat was tasty (and there was a whole lot of it!) and it was really quite filling. It's simple and good as a grab 'n' go food, or you can sit around outside, drink and play a card game like some of the dudes were doing when I was there.
