On Easter Sunday, myself and Ryan were at a bit of a loss with what to do with ourselves. Everything closes in Australia on Good Friday, and I knew a lot of the shops in the city were closed on Sunday too. We fancied a bit of a Sunday session, since we both had the day off work (a rare occurrence), so we decided to head down to South Bank in the hopes of finding some lunch and a watering hole.
South Bank was actually buzzing with activity, a lot of families down at the pool and beach area, and most bars and restaurants were open (YAYY!). We decided on a light lunch and headed to Zeus. We have been past this place a few times and have always said we would try it, when we did it was so worth it!
Zeus specialise in Greek street food, think pitas and salads. It is a chain restaurant with a few stores in New South Wales, but the South Bank store is the only one in Queensland. The store had a really fresh, clean, modern feel to it and you could tell there had been some work put into the place. Everything was embossed with the Zeus logo, even the napkins! I loved the feel of the place before I had even ordered my food.
We both had the Uncle Tzimmy pita, mine with lamb and Ryan’s with chicken. They came with tomato, tzatziki, onions, paprika and chips all wrapped up in a thick, soft pita. We both really enjoyed our pitas. The meat was cooked to perfection, every bite was full of flavour, and I was comfortably satisfied when I had finished (so its a good job we didn’t order sides!).
We were very happy with our lunch which set us up nicely for our Sunday session. We headed to South Bank Beer Garden, for a pint (yep, not a scooner!) to wash down our dinner before we headed to Fortitude Valley for more cider and a bit of a pub crawl! All in all, an excellent Easter Sunday!
Bye for now
