Vroom Cafe on James Street

After the first exhausting day at Supanova, the SO went online to look for a restaurant that served gluten-free options. Vroom Bistro and Bar came up on several searches and wasn't too far from the RNA Showgrounds, so we went down.

It wasn't a busy night and plenty of seats available. There was a sign out front advertising all day breakfast and we asked if we could have the breakfast menu, only to be told that the all-day breakfast was only till 3pm. Hmmmm...

Nevertheless, dinner was quite nice. bankevair and her sister shared the above, before deciding it wasn't enough.

I went with this salad and octopus can be a bit tricky. Many restaurants serve very tough octopus, but Vroom have it down pat. Served with fried shallots, the flesh was tender and not the least bit chewy. My own gripe was that the lettuce leaves were whole, so some knife skills were required.

mariko_senpai's dinner, which is gluten free and she gave it a thumbs up.

The SO was very impressed with the rosti, which had more of a mash potato texture than a proper rosti. The flavour was amazing and complemented the kangaroo very well. The roo was cooked well, but we weren't very sure what the fried leek bits was meant to achieve. Coupled with the potato, it added texture, but otherwise, we left it to the side.

Unfortunately the SO and I agree that while the food is nice at Vroom, it is not as good as you'd expect for the price you pay.

Speaking of which, when do you plan on visiting Brisbane again?
