Proving there is more than high rises, arcades and expansive beaches, Surfers Paradise promises a smorgasbord of cuisines to satisfy, no matter what you are hungry for.
Hungry for a humble hamburger? Well Wahlburgers have you covered with a plethora of popular options including the Aussie chicken schnitty burger or loaded wasabi fries. For a healthy take on the classic BLAT burger, get down to Grill’d where you can find their ‘HFC’ (Healthy Fried Chicken) varieties. Head to Hero Sushi for tuna and avo subs or tuck into a taco at El Camino Cantina.
Proving there is more to breakfast than bacon and eggs, Charlie’s Café and Bar hits breakfast on the head with their Spanish omelette boasting chorizo, red peppers and red onion. If you're in the mood to tantalise your taste buds, Nahm Talay Thai will surprise and delight with their crispy enoki eggs benny and popular soft shell crab egg lava croissant.
No visit to the glitter strip is complete without succumbing to a kebab and Surfers Pizza and Kebab have you covered with their range of fresh toppings, marinated meats and sauces enclosed in a Turkish flatbread. Whether you need a pepperoni pizza pronto or you're salivating for a salad, Enzo's Cucina have bite loads of options to keep your hunger pains away.
If your energy levels are waning and the 3pm slump has hit, we suggest hot-footing it to Ben and Jerry’s, Gelato Messina, Royal Copenhagen or Krispy Kreme for ice creams to impress and doughnuts to delight.
And to quench a hard-earned thirst after a morning of riding the waves, you will be spoilt for choice with everything from bubble tea at Gong Cha or Gotcha Fresh Tea, freshly made smoothies at La Playa to an ice-cold beer at Kitty O’Shea’s Bar and Restaurant. If sipping something sweet is more your style, why not treat the kids to TGI Fridays' ultimate unicorn shake or swing by Surfers Paradise Beer Garden for a cocktail or two. Cheers!
So undo your belt buckle, round up your foodie friends and make your way to this surfside suburb to enjoy some of the coast’s finest cuisine with a solid dose of sunshine.
