Spicers Balfour Kitchen Overview

Guests can be forgiven for thinking they are miles away from the hustle and bustle of Brisbane city, inside Spicers Balfour Kitchen at New Farm. Nestled in a beautiful Queenslander, this bistro-style venue offers an exciting menu, featuring Chef Jordan Clavaron’s interpretations of Modern Australian plates in a sophisticated, yet relaxed environment. Soak up Brisbane’s balmy evenings by enjoying a cocktail or two in an intimate frangipani tree-shaded courtyard, before sitting down for a delicious feast on the wrap-around verandah. Whet your appetite with a starter such as beetroot kingfish ceviche with cucumber and dill sauce, before mains like Spanish mackerel with an heirloom tomato salad and camel croquette with muhammara sauce. For a sweet finish, try the peach and yoghurt parfait.

A few words from Spicers Balfour Kitchen

Jordan started his career in Paris, working his way through Michelin Star restaurants, including La Croix d'or (1 Michelin Star), L'atelier de Joel Robuchon (2 Michelin Star) and Dominique Bouchet (2 Michelin Star). Moving to Australia in 2013, he continued to work with some of Australia`s best Chefs before deciding to settle permanently in Brisbane.

His passion for local produce comes from working alongside his Father for many years; a passionate Michelin Star Chef himself. Some of Jordan's earliest memories are being in the kitchen next to his father learning the basics of French Cuisine.

Jordan now focusses on creating a stylish; seasonal menu showcasing the freshest produce delivered daily. His menu derives from classic dishes, twisted into modern favourites and is ever changing with the wonderful variety of locally grown items available here in Queensland.

The Balfour Kitchen's Neighborhood Verandah setting provides and intimate experience for our diners just like visiting your great Aunt, or your favourite neighbour. Jordan is committed to introducing new ingredients and evolving with the best of Brisbane's seasonal produce. The freshest local offerings will continue to influence the menus at Balfour Kitchen. The menu changes daily and includes innovative dishes such as Charred octopus, chorizo and saffron whipped potato puree with pomegranate, or Peanut Butter Parfait with Vegemite icecream and honeycombe.

Jordan chooses to highlight the Australian and Queensland produce with complementing international flavours or techniques to provide dishes which are unique, however recognisable and certainly delicious. Jordan has already proven his passion for honouring his local ingredients by meeting with the restaurant's farmers and suppliers wherever possible. This personal approach ensures that Jordan and the suppliers have a shared respect and pride for fresh and sustainable produce and helps to deliver only the best quality produce to our doors. With a belief that there should be a story behind all of his dishes, Jordan relies on the simplicity of nature's flavours and inspiration found in everyday life to be the hero of his dishes.
