Prepare to be excited as Good Food Month launches in Brisbane throughout July, bringing exciting options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
There’s almost 150 fun, funky and fabulous events lined up for Brisbane’s first Good Food Month throughout July that will keep food lovers occupied from breakfast through to late night suppers in a four week feast.
We’ve waited a long time for our own Night Noodle Markets but they’ll be taking over the Cultural Forecourt at South Bank from July 17 to July 27. Expect to be greeted by the aromas of charcoal-grilled yakitori sticks, gyoza, steaming bowls of Vietnamese pho and ramen noodles.
Putting aside logistics and a possible food overload, here are my top five picks for the month. I hope to see you there!

All the fun with none of the cleaning up. It’s a different region of Spain for each of the four Sundays in July and a bargain at $35 a person.
