The trouble with working in the CBD is you hear all about new restaurants….but you often don't have the time to actually go and eat at them.
Such is the case of the South Side Diner at Southbank, who's menu I've been drolling over for some time.
Luckily, thanks to the opportunity of an 'end of reporting year' celebration at work, my colleagues and I headed across the river to try it out.
All three of us ordered a shake (vanilla, snickers and peanut butter), and then our mains couldn't be more different. I ordered a Reuben Sandwich (and a side of sweet potato fries!), and they ordered a mexican style chicken (which isn't on the menu any longer) and our vegetarian the South Beach Burger (we found it mildly amusing when the waitress checked that he knew it was vegetarian).
The peanut butter thickshake was very filling, and good, but next time I think I'd try the snickers….and the Reuben was delicious. Lets face it everyone loves salty sweet potato fries.
If you're over at South Bank, and you fancy a burger, this place will certainly fit the bill.
