Tuck into Tukka

If you find yourself in Brisbane with guests from overseas, head to West End and ‘Tukka’ restaurant – it looks Indian by name but it serves up excellent Aussie ‘tucker’. You’ll find locally sourced specials like Barramundi, Moreton Bay Bugs and Rack of Lamb, but there are five and seven course degustation menus where you can hoe into the Coat of Arms and other delicacies you may have only previously seen as roadkill. And it isn’t a gimmick – this is an amazing chef! None of it is just whacked on the barbie – the emu, for example, is “Seared Marburg farmed Emu fillet with an orange and wattle seed jus and braised fennel on a potato gallette (gluten free)” – and you can order with or without suggested wines – the one suggested to complement the old emu palette is a Vasse Felix Cabernet Merlot…

Open for lunch on weekends and seven nights for dinner with wheelchair access.you
