Too Bao To Handle Too Cold To Hold: Kwan Brothers opens in Fortitude Valley

There's a new kid in town and it's about time you checked him out. Kwan Brothers recently opened in Fortitude Valley. Brought to you by the masterminds behind Alfredo's Pizzeria, Aflred and Constance, Limes Hotel etc. This new restaurant draws inspiration from Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Bangkok to create a fun, flavourful menu that will leave your mouth watering for more!

We can almost guarantee this Asian fusion restaurant isn't like any you've tried here in Brisbane. It has a very energetic, party-like atmosphere equipped with disco balls and pretty lights. You can instantly imagine yourself there after work, enjoying a few cocktails with your mates. This place is truly unique. They even have a secret whiskey bar in the back. We predict the whiskey bar at Kwan's will become the place to be seen down the track. Decked out in plush black leather seats, and black walls this place oozes coolness & style. I felt my cool points go up just stepping through the door expertly disguised as a freezer! The bartender in Kwan's secret whiskey bar uses a very interesting Japanese technique of carving ice. The ice is carved to fit the glass. The idea is that by using one piece of ice that perfectly fits the glass you prevent a nice whisky from becoming watered down. Whiskey drinkers rejoice! 

We absolutely loved this place. What a fun evening we had with Lucid Media and Brisbane Devoured sampling the menu. Some of the highlights from the menu for us were: Fried Chicken Bao Bao, Crispy Silken Tofu, Crispy Pork Belly, and Southwestern Brulee. We can't wait for our next visit! Check out some of our pictures from the night below:

Fried Chicken Bao Bao Sliders

Crispy Peking Duck Spring Rolls

Cripsy Pork Belly was perfection. The pickled watermelon was refreshing and helped break down the fatty pork.

Salt & Pepper Squid was seasoned very well and incredibly tender...

Beef Short Rib- so messy but so delicious!

Pineapple fried rice uniquely presented in a pineapple...

Shaking Beef Salad

Southwestern Brulee

Sticky date pudding - so good!

We couldnt go past the Banoffee Pie...
Too Bao To Handle Too Cold To Hold- the BEST icecream sandwiches! I loved the ginger ice cream sandwich.

If you haven't tried Kwan Brothers yet...what are you waiting for? Get down there!
