Every culture has one- a dish that makes you feel so good inside, it can’t possibly be wrong. A dish that tastes like it should be good for you, that it should be able to beat anything that ails you into submission. Folk food, family food, street food. Pho, (pronounced “fuh” for the uninitiated) is …

Rice Boi, Mooloolaba

Let me say this first: I’m in dumpling heaven. Now that I’ve got that out of the way…actually no, I need to say it again – the dumplings really are that good. In fact, Rice Boi really is that good. This is the street food style eatery that Mooloolaba has been needing. It’s the street …

Bohemian Bungalow

  I knew I loved this place before I met it. No, bear with me a minute. It wasn’t just the name (which I love), or the graphic daisy logo (which I also love). It wasn’t even that it’s in Eumundi (which I love) and has a John Lennon inspired heart All You Need Is Love …

Hong Sa Bar at Spirit House

We’ve been fans of The Spirit House for what seems like forever. I hate to think how many times I’ve posted about it on the old and anyways site. They absolutely deserve the accolades they’ve received – speaking of which, they retained their hat status in the recent Good Food Awards…I digress. Anyways, just when …

La Canteena

Bucket of beers. Do three words ever sound as good as these do? Especially on a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon on the Coast. What if I throw in another few words? Words like tacos, and corn, and chicken wings. Dude food Mexican style. Yeah. Those words sound pretty good too. At La Canteena on …

Guru Life

It’s a funny thing, but one of things I remember distinctly about holidays to the Sunshine Coast was the sugar cane. I remember that on the road to Nambour there was lots of sugar cane. I even remember that sometimes you had to stop for the train that took the cane up to the mill. …

Winnie at Woombye

There’s something about Woombye. It feels a lot like Bangalow (in the Byron hinterland) did before it was Bangalow and got all quirky hipster fashionable. (As an aside, I still love Bangalow). Anyways, Woombye, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, feels a little like that – full of potential and possibility. As if it’s yet to …

20 things to do on the Sunshine Coast this Spring

The birds and the sun are waking earlier and the days are getting longer. In a couple of weeks the rest of Australia will be winding their clocks forward for the start of daylight saving and those of us here in Queensland who work remotely back to Sydney each day will be cursing the time …

Scrub Turkey

I’m a bit of a fan of the scrub turkey.  They’re a clumsy looking bird that you either tend to love or hate – I’m in the love category. To me, they’re part of the coast. Anyone whose had their lunch stolen or their camp site ransacked by one would, however, probably wouldn’t agree with me. …

Caloundra Street Fair

If you’re into street markets, this is a good one. Apparently it’s been voted best street market on the coast. I’m not sure about that, but it is certainly the largest. As an aside, I’m not counting Eumundi as a street market – it’s in a class all of its own… Anyways, every Sunday – …
