Just south of the Queensland border is a collection of restaurants that have mastered the art of international cuisines. There’s everything from French, Greek and Italian – through to flavoursome Indian. And the best part is -they’re all within close proximity of each other!
Sitting beside the Tweed River is the suburb of Chinderah and if the smell of freshly baked pastries fills the air, you know you’ve come to the right place! The team at Cubby Bakehouse have proven that you don’t have to be born in France, to bake like a French pâtissier. The owners travelled to France to train with a master baker to learn their craft. And let’s just say, the proof is in the baguettes!
The beauty of this area is that you can taste your way around the world, all within a couple of minutes. Just down the road in the neighbouring suburb of Kingscliff is the Bombay Cricketers Club. This bright and airy restaurant serves up authentic Indian, with a modern twist. The fresh, vibrant menu is designed to be shared, although you probably won’t want to when you get a taste of their dishes!
If penne pastas are more your pick, Osteria in Casuarina is a must! Osteria in Italian means ‘a simple and inexpensive Italian restaurant.’ The owners named the restaurant this after their love of the simplicity and perfect emphasis placed on good food, wine and produce at all the Osterias found scattered throughout Italy.
