Super Whatnot (Brisbane CBD, QLD)

Fall break has officially begun, and since the girls have been eyeing Super Whatnot in the city, we decided on a low-key rendezvous there.  The narrow entryway to this trendy bar is easy to miss.  For one, it's located on Burnett Lane, an alleyway off of Queen Street and George.  The lighting is dim, making the entrance unassuming and even more difficult to find, but this definitely isn't stopping it from being a popular hangout spot!

The ambience is warm and relaxed, which I immediately liked.  The brocade couches, wooden panels, day of the dead skulls, and picture of a deer on the wall did it for us!  We ordered a few plates of nibbles along with our beer, which were all pretty decent.  We had the Pao de Queijo (9), a Brazilian cheese bread, which was essentially a cheese flavored mochi bread ball.  It was freshly made and had a nice crunch on the outside, with a chewy bread center.  The Nachos Locos with beef (14) weren't quite as impressive, as they were a bit dry, as one of us pointed out, and the portion was just a bit small for what we were paying for (even for Oz!).  Lastly, we had the Rasta Chicken (11), a crunchy Jamaican peppered chicken drumsticks, which came with "Bob Sauce."  The chicken itself was nice and crunchy on the outside, but the highlight was definitely the sauce.  I didn't pay attention to what it was, but it was good!

Overall, the food was quite decent, along with the place itself.  My only complaint was that the food took over 20, maybe even 25 minutes, to arrive.  It wasn't busy at all, so I wonder at why their service was a bit slack.  Either way, I would definitely recommend this place for a drink if you're in the city, as they also serve a variety of cocktails.
