Snag Stand (Brisbane CBD, QLD)
The perks of living in the Brisbane city is that there are quite a number of places to dine during the weekday - but when it comes to the weekend, most restaurants and cafes are closed. Nothing is usually open on Sundays, especially past 3pm, so your best bet would be to find a place in Paddington, West End, or New Farm to relax and grab a cuppa.
Not knowing what to eat on a Sunday, me and Jo decided to grab lunch at Snag Stand in the David Jones shopping centre in the city before watching Monsters University - which we have been planning to see for weeks. While I'm not the biggest fan of hot dogs for the most part - I do enjoy a good sausage, and even a hot dog from Costo from time to time. Since there really aren't that many places that offer sausages etc. in Brisbane, we decided to give this a try, since they apparently offer hand crafted artisan sausages. Their offerings actually sounded delicious, and we ended up sharing the Wagyu Beef (10.9) and the Spicy Cheese Kransky (8.9), along with a side of onion rings (6) and chipotle mayo sauce. The Wagyu beef comes with a butter & garlic mash, gravy, and sauteed onions, and while it wasn't as flavourful as the Cheese Kransky, was good because of the garlic mash (I'm sold by potatoes!). The Spicy Cheese Kransky was barely spicy at all, even with the sriacha mayo component. The sun-dried tomatoes and cheddar cheese added a nice twist on the regular sausage, and I think we both liked this one better. The onion rings were nothing like 'merican style battered onion rings, but were nonetheless fresh and decent.
For a regular "fast food" corner in the food court of Queens Plaza, I think I'm liking this place. Not to mention, the cashier was friendly even though it doesn't matter all that much in a food court...
