Birthday Feast I

Started my Birthday Feast on Friday 23rd May – a day before the day!

Lunch at Ahmet for delicious Turkish food with Alice – Turkish bread and a platter of 6 dips (hummus, beetroot, yogurt & cucumber, chilli, pumpkin and garlic). Then we went for dessert at Passion Tree for Banana nut waffles.

In the evening, went to dinner with Emma whose birthday is 2 days before mines. So to celebrate our birthdays we went to Aria for a quintessential dining experience, with striking river views. The restaurant is owned by chef Matt Moran and currently holds two coveted Chef’s hats awarded at the Brisbane Times Queensland Good Food Awards.
