Four-days of flavour filled festivities are coming to Maroon Festival in just three weeks, with some of Brisbane’s best local eateries, cafes and food trucks popping up as the Tastes of QLD Food Stalls and a special Waterfront Garden Bar popping up overlooking the Brisbane River.
At the Tastes of QLD Food Stalls there’s something for all Queenslanders – you’ll be able to feed your troops and satiate even the most savage appetite with a deliciously diverse menu of multicultural flavours and foodie-festival favourites.
From 10am daily, a handpicked line-up of local food stalls will be serving up a special menu of signature dishes that showcase and celebrate the phenomenal range of quality produce available from our great state.
Queensland institution, Schulte’s, will be offering their tasty cured meats made in the Lockyer Valley region. Their mouth-watering mettwurst, beer sticks and beef jerky make for the perfect footy snack!
At The Farmers Table, you’ll be feasting on organic Gympie pulled pork sliders and free range chicken burgers topped with kimchi made on the Gold Coast.
Hand-crafted arepas, tacos and nachos, all made with fresh local ingredients, can be found at the Fiery Deli.
Southbank favourite, Popolo will have plenty of Moorish Italian goodies including toasted fennel meatballs with Bundaberg tomato sugo and shaved parmesan, along with slow roasted Gatton pumpkin and feta arancini.
Sultans Kitchen will spice things up with their tasty butter chicken sourced from Ipswich, crunchy fire chips loaded with minted aioli, and mixed vegetable curry filled with seasonal vegetables sourced from the Darling Downs.
Brazza will be throwing Eight Mile Plains grass fed beef on the barbie, along with Tamborine Mountain halloumi and mushrooms, all grilled over natural Australian charcoals. Yummo!
Also joining the celebrations are popular Brisbane food truck Saté House, with their signature Malay and Indonesian inspired delicacies.
South East Queensland’s healthiest mobile van, Whips & Co will also be joining in the foodie festivities. Treat yourself to their refreshing soft serves made with vegan CocoWhip, topped with goji berries, blueberries and other delectable raw goodies from the Gold Coast.
Meanwhile, each day and night at the Waterfront Garden Bar you’ll be able to meet, eat, drink and enjoy the abundance of free entertainment by the river.
