Hearing whispers of a $15 Parmi special on a Thursday; this created the perfect opportunity to catch up with an interstate friend and show him just how good the Parmi's up in QLD are.
Andrew: Meeting up with a friend from Sydney, I wanted to impress him with a good Brisbane Parmi. I had seen Brew Master's advertising a $15 special on a Thursday and jumped at the chance. We even managed to sneak in for the happy hour beers, double win!
First things first, this is one decent sized Parmi, with no expense spared on the cheese! For those that hate their chips under a Parmi, unless you were eating straight off the table there would be no way around it...the Parmi is big!
Now obviously the cheese is a standout feature, it could have been a little bit more grilled for my liking. I think that for the amount of Parmi we are given some extra Napoli would definitely go a long way here. Ham servings were bang on. Chicken was crumbed well and as mentioned is a great portion.
Side salad was refreshing with a light dressing and beer battered chips are always a pleasure.
This was a perfect Parmi to show what Brisbane has to offer.
My Score - 7.9/10
Mat: On a roundabout and nestled in next to a Thai restaurant, my guest appearance as a ParmiHunter began. I wasn’t expecting much given the decor and location, but how looks can be deceiving.
The parmi arrived, a very well endowed breast, topped with ham and cheese laying on a bed of chips and accompanied by a healthy dose of salad, the presentation was on point.
The first bite wasn’t as intense as I had hoped for, with me wondering if Brisbane had a tomato shortage due to sauce being used sparingly round the edges, the only criticism to note. However, the next bite was in my face, like Harvey Weinstein’s appendage to a young actress, although this was much much more pleasant.
With every bite it got more fulfilling, the ham to cheese ratio was perfect as if crafted by mathematician/chef hybrid. The accompanying salad, crisp and palate cleansing, as if it’s sole purpose was to kickstart my taste buds for every new mouthful. And then it was over....All in all, a very solid parmi.
My Score - 8.0/10
Average Rating 8.0/10 - A decent Parmi just outside of the city. For $15 on a Thursday this is up there with some of the best value for money Parmi's in Brisbane!
