Italian Street Kitchen is opening on Thursday 9 September.
We’re a sucker for Italian food. Whether it’s pizza or pasta, meatballs in sugo or salumi and cheeseboards loaded up with tasty Italian ingredients, we can never get enough. This is especially true at Italian Street Kitchen which imports stone-ground flour from Parma, San Marzano tomatoes and pecorino cheese from Sardinia for that true authentic Italian flavour.
To celebrate the opening of their new West End venue, they’re throwing a party with Brisbane’s local talent Tayla Mae providing the tunes and Apertivo hour across the entire weekend. Normally found on weekdays from 5-7pm, you will be able to get special deals on drinks, cocktails and antipasti plates from $5. There will be prizes and giveaways to be won too, free Margherita pizza slices and free Margherita coupons within the ISK app, and facepainting and games for everyone to enjoy.
”Our pasta is made in house daily from a blend of different flours imported from Northern Italy that is exclusive to ISK. We developed a unique blend in collaboration with Le 5 Stagioni to ensure the pizza and pasta experience is unique to the brand,” food Manager Giulio Marchese said.
And unique it is with the menu items influenced by Isabella’s travels through the Mediterranean country. It’s the sort of food you would expect to eat with the family but is also sufficiently modern enough for a classy night dining out and sipping on Italian wines and cocktails. It’s the best of a bustling street-side cafe and a contemporary dining experience.
Some of the menu highlights include the funghi pizza with fior di latte cheese, gorgonzola, mushrooms (enoki, oyster, and portobello), gremolata and extra virgin olive oil as well as the traditional Sardinian gnocchetti Sardi salsiccia with pork and fennel sausage, tomato, chilli, white wine, garlic and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. ISK is also one of the few restaurants in town that serves vegan cheese and there’s a few vegetarian and vegan options on the menu because times are changing.
Even better is that ISK does weekday lunch deals where locals, or anyone passing through West End, can pop in for a pizza, pasta or salad with a drink for $19 feed.
