Worth Seeking Out

A small Restaurant that is definitely worth searching out. Degustation menu was excellent, and Chris has done a fantastic job of creating dishes of few ingredients where the flavours really pop. Definitely a restaurant worth seeking out!

Innovative, quality and value

One of the negatives of looking to move to coastal Queensland is the lack of alternatives to innovative dining that we currently have in Sydney. Tasting menus can sometimes be endurance test, but Black Ox in Brisbane doesn't put you through this. Their 7 course menu is quality, flair, innovation and value. The opening course of house baked rye & spelt bread with house churned butter was superb - fascinating was the story behind the grains for the flours, and the quality showed. The next dishes of Lamb, Peas, Wild Whiting and Beef showed a great diversity of styles and tastes. Excellent value at $140 for the quality.

Elegant Creativity

Such a wonderful dining experience. Every single morsel was delicious. There's not one thing I could fault in their service, food or drinks. Chris the Chef was Super friendly and came by our seat and wished my Wife a happy birthday. Chris and his team have created a truly wonderful atmosphere and an amazing experience.

Fantastically Produce Driven

5 of us took part in their most recent Pop Up degustation, and 5 of us walked away absolutely delighted. An experience that no description can do justice. Highly recommend letting these guys take you on their unique gastronomic journey!

In a city with a changing dining culture, Black Ox Dining might just be on the way to being the best dining experience in Brisbane. At $140 per head including wine pairing it is exceptional value when compared to the likes of Urbane. The food is exquisite, only bettered by the friendly, highly professional service. Brilliant.

Wonderful Evening of "Bistronomy"

We arrived on a hot Wednesday night for Valentines dinner. Enjoyed the originality of the dishes and the careful preparation of the quality ingredients. Service was very good, and the menu was the perfect size with a few snacks thrown in. We could see into the kitchen from our table and the teamwork was a pleasure to watch. Everything was enjoyable including the spritz at the end. Can't wait till there next Pop Up in Thorneside!

Couldn't have been more enjoyable! Beautiful historic venue in the old Tramway Substation. Impeccable food and wine. Would be great to have some cocktails or similar part of the menu, but was definitely worth dining at.

Fantastic Dining Experience

Not something you'd come across every day in Brisbane. You need to really search for this hidden gem of the Brisbane food scene, but you would as they are a pop up! Ambience - Black Ox Dining has a very chill vibe, which is unusual as you are enjoying a degustation menu, but i think it is a nice touch that make this sort of dining more approachable. Service- Absolutely wonderful! The two wait staff are very active and have great knowledge and passion for what is being served. Food- Excellent and Thought Provoking. Each course has a story about it, and it should as the Chef says everything is organically grown in there gardens or from growers in Queensland. We really enjoyed experiencing a new style of food and cooking. Is a place worth trying if you are a foodie and want to experience something new in Brisbane. We will be watching for new events in the future!

Wow

I wanted to experience something a little different and the last pop up 'cooking with fire' was exactly what i was looking for. The food was amazing and you could see the effort the chef had put in. I will definitely be attending more events.

Black Ox Dining Overview

Brisbane pop-up restaurant Black Ox Dining brings a paddock to plate philosophy to their degustation dinner fare. With a semi-permanent location at the historic Paddington Substation on Enoggera Terrace, Black Ox can also be found at various other venues around the city, sharing some of the best produce and seasonable, sustainable ingredients from local farmers and fishermen with their guests. Salivate over a six or eight course degustation menu with choices such as smoked Queensland jewfish with Paddington greens, or cured barramundi with star anise, lemon and cucumber; before delving into thinly sliced kangaroo with plum sauce. Enticing desserts such as grilled fruit with fermented honeycomb and Mount Tamborine rhubarb with Muscat, resemble art on a plate and will tempt any diner.
