John's Prawns at Gambaro Seafood in Brisbane

When the hungries hit in Brisbane, the place to remedy the situation is Gambaro.

Since opening a simple fish & chips shop back in 1953, three generations of Gambaros have been serving up Queensland's finest fresh catches, and earning a well deserved reputation as one of the city's enduring institutions.

The tradition was properly on display when we dropped in, as our "John's Prawns" were prepared tableside, fully flaming.

Absolutely phenomenal with garlic, butter, cream, and just enough chilies to give it a kick.

Already famous for seafood, Gambaro has taken on the world of beef with the opening of Black Hide Steakhouse right across the street.

After our shrimp we crossed over to feast on some prime cuts from 100% Queensland Stanbroke cattle. Rather than limit ourselves to trying just one each, we decided to share a sample of both Angus and Wagyu steaks.

Angus  and Wagyu steaks at Black Hide Steakhouse in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

We were not familiar with the term Wagyu, but learned that it is the breed of cattle best known for Kobe beef.

Tender and delicious, the only thing tough about these steaks was missing them when they were gone.

Served with potato and asparagus, this was a meal to satisfy even the hungriest koala cuddlers and kangaroo wranglers.
