September 6th, 2016

What is it about this time of year that has me craving the best ribs in Cairns?



We have tried some good ribs over the years at Cairns restaurants

But these are the BEST RIBS IN CAIRNS without a doubt.I gotta get on down the the Waterbar and Grill

Teach a man to fish…

… and he’ll drink beer in a boat!

Well, there was no beer yesterday (although you can bring your own) when Nico and I headed out with Paradise Sportfishing. It was an idyllic day on the water and we watched in awe as our trusty skipper John netted a supply of shimmering bait-fish in the mangroves before heading down the inlet to catch ourselves some lunch.

We tried a few different locations, and did get numerous bites in the second spot. But nothing that we landed was suitable for eating. Nico was thrilled to land this beauty though!

Introducing our guest blogger, and budding restaurant reviewer, five year old Nico. For Fathers’ Day, he offered to take me to one of my (and his!) favourite Cairns restaurants, Bushfire Flame Grill at the Pacific Hotel on the beautiful Cairns Esplanade.

Bushfire is an ‘all-you-can-eat’ Brazilian ‘Churrasco’ inspired barbecue restaurant, and is a veritable paradise for carnivores…

Here are his thoughts:

Its name really sounded nice, and even it had some fires, and the people were really nice and really kind and they didn’t talk hard to you.

It’s like people go around with big sticks and they put meat on it; lamb, beef, not chicken - it comes in a bowl - pineapple with addings. Everything there was really good because when something we wanted wasn’t there, something else we wanted was…

I liked the chicken best, because there wasn’t a lot of fat and it was nicely cooked and they put a lot of work into it.

The dessert for me; the things that looked like glass, one looked like a plastic and we could eat it. I thought we couldn’t eat it but then when I ate it, it was nice. But my own dessert, a little bowl of ice-cream, was really nice and I didn’t even have to ask for it; it just came.
