About The Balfour Kitchen

Escape the bustle of the city at charming and serene The Balfour Kitchen on Balfour Street in New Farm. Set in a beautiful Queenslander, guests can dine on the verandah, enjoy relaxed gatherings under fragrant frangipanis in the courtyard, or cocktails on the rooftop bar, as the sun sets over the iconic Storey Bridge. Serving edgy modern Vietnamese inspired cuisine with a French twist, the enticing menu delivers fresh, light and punchy flavours, along with vegan and vegetarian options. Perhaps start with soft shell crab bao, sriracha slaw and tamarind dressing, before mains like sweet, sour and hot beef short ribs, house pickles, sugar snap peas, radish and cabbage salad; finish indulgently with dark chocolate mousse, caramelised white chocolate ice cream, crunch, pop and poached cherries.
