The Spanish restaurant ‘Gordita’, meaning chubby girl, from the owners of Peasant, Lefty’s and Cabiria, is Brisbane’s latest Spanish offering.

The menu at Gordita is Southern Spanish and ranges from snacks, like warm olives with lemon, to dishes served ‘on the bone’.

Try prawns ‘Tio Diego’ with mushrooms, serrano, garlic and sherry, and the stuffed calamari with squid ink, garlic and fried Calasparra rice.

The grass fed 1kg T-bone steak cooked to medium rare, with piquillo peppers, chips and blue cheese has got cardiac surgeons in scrubs ready for action.
