Loving it for a Longtime

Dinner at Longtime in Brisbane was a taste sensation. Hidden in a atmospherically reclaimed alleyway off Ann St in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, Longtime delivers innovative Asian delights under the direction of Executive Chef Ben Bertei, ex-Spirit House in Yandina and Longrain Melbourne. Designed for sharing the $90 per head Chef’s choice menu kicked off with delicious spicy oyster bloody Mary’s, tuna tartare with a curry sauce served on a rice cracker, and mini chicken burgers on sweet buns with a tangy Mayo sauce. The starters bode of good things to come with their contrasting textures and clearly defined flavours. We were not to be disappointed the Banana Flower salad with organic chicken, slow roasted pork belly, coconut and turmeric curry of Moreton bugs and wagyu rump with a lime chilli sauce were all delicious. Each dish carried it’s unique flavours to our tastebuds without being overpowered by the use of chilli, or any one spice. Well balanced, ample servings and sharp, friendly service made for a memorable dinner topped off by a superb dessert of Aero textured chocolate with a a smoky chocolate sauce and a delicious lemony gelato. Recommend booking for an early dinner – bookings available between 5.30-6.30 or else arrive early to snatch a table as early diners leave. http://www.longtime.com.au
