A European Holiday: Part 3

A lunch in Greece

It’s time to dress up as Nana Mouskouri. We’re headed for Greece in Brisbane: found at the heart of West End. Locals will argue which of the many Greek restaurants in this rather enticing nook is the best, but today we will visit my personal favourite, Kafe Meze. For lovers of dolmades, spanakopita, kebabs, and souvlaki, with the all-important Santorini backyard feel, will fall in love with this delectable venue. Images of Greek Island escapades will fill your thoughts once more. Wear a chic frock and wide-brim or a flowing off the shoulder sundress!

An afternoon in Belgium

We’ve taken a little leap across countries again to get here, but I think you’ll find it worth the (actually rather short) journey. The Belgian Beer Café on Edward Street is home to a ridiculously wide-ranging beer menu and an impressive list of bar foods to snack on while you see out the afternoon.

A dinner in Turkey

Well tour-group, we’re on the last (but not least exciting) stop on our vay-cay. My greatest European love, Turkey, can be sampled in countless locations, but let’s do dins right next door to Ra Ra at the new Efendi's. It may lack the dirt floor, outdoor cushioned couch-style dining of Istanbul and the view of The Blue Mosque, but your tastebuds will be so tantalised you won’t notice you're still in Brisbane. The enchanting menu includes the most divine falafel salads, lamb pide and for dessert rice pudding and baklava! Wear Turkish delight colours and inspired prints. It’s the idyllic way to watch the sun set on our Eurpoean holiday.

The best part of this trip is that you needn’t say goodbye, you won’t be jetlagged, and you won’t have to face that tell-tale washing basket-overspill that a holiday abroad usually equates to.

Bon Voyage friends!
