Spicers Balfour Kitchen Overview

One can be forgiven for thinking they are miles away from the hustle and bustle of Brisbane inside Spicers Balfour Kitchen in New Farm. Hosted in a beautiful Queenslander, the bistro-style establishment offers an exciting menu featuring Chef Will Wallace's interpretations of a Modern Australian menu in a sophisticated, yet relaxed environment. Soak up Brisbane’s balmy evenings by enjoying a cocktail or two in the intimate Frangipani tree-shaded courtyard before sitting down for a delicious feast on the wrap-around verandah. Whet your appetite with a starter of confit smoked salmon with ponzu, tuna broth and fennel before mains such as Creole dry-rubbed North Queensland cobia with pineapple and young coconut sambal, finishing with Lindt milk chocolate and malt semifreddo and blondie crumbs.

Spicers Balfour Kitchen Menu Sample

70 day grain-fed South-East Queensland 250 g porterhouse and a side of native peppered hazelnut rommesco sauce.


A few words from Spicers Balfour Kitchen

FOUR YEARS IN the United Kingdom (three of them spent as head chef at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in Regent's Park) has helped Carla Sullivan become the innovative chef that she is today. Upon Carla's return to Brisbane two months ago, her desire to share her knowledge and love of local fresh produce led to a role as head chef at New Farm's Spicers Balfour Restaurant.

The verandah bistro setting makes the hotel feel like a home away from home. Carla is also committed to introducing new ingredients and evolving with the seasonal produce. The freshest local offerings will continue to influence the menus at Balfour Kitchen. Her current menu includes innovative dishes such as whole baked Queensland Murray cod with a green papaya kaffir lime pickle. Marbled beef carpaccio, white anchovy emulsion, dried yellow peach, capers and Treviso utilise Australian and Queensland produce with complementing international flavours all while keeping it simple. In her short time as head chef, Carla has already proven her passion for honouring her ingredients by meeting with the restaurant's farmers and suppliers wherever possible. This personal approach ensures that Carla and the suppliers have a shared respect and pride for fresh and sustainable produce. With the belief that there should be a story behind all food, Carla relies on the simplicity of nature's flavoursome produce to be the hero of her dishes.
