The Lamb Shop is the new kid on the block, joining a strong cast of characters as a part of the King Street and RNA Showgrounds precinct redevelopment. This Broadbeach staple has just opened the doors to a brand-new Brisbane store and boy do they have our mouths watering.
The Lamb Shop totes a modern spin on traditional Greek souvlaki, food infused with the flavour and nostalgia of both Greek and Australian upbringings. Their tender lamb is soft and smoky enough to convert any non-believers and you can have it every which way – on a share plate served with tzatziki and soft, pillowy pita bread, falling off the bone in a serve of lamb ribs or in one of their signature souvlakis, made with fries and a delicious tangy mustard mayo. There’s plenty of wonderful side dish options available too – grilled corn with oregano butter and shaved sheeps milk cheese, traditional Greek salad, organic grain salad with lentils, freekeh, raisins, nuts and a cumin and honey yoghurt dressing and sides of mouth-watering fries topped off with garlic oil and crumbled feta. Hungry yet? Fear not, their menu is available for takeaway as well.
This is the perfect place for a night of feasting! The Lamb Shop also offer a delicious whole lamb shoulder, marinated for 24-48 hours and slow cooked for around 8. This tender meat is just right paired with a collection of sides, a few beers and some good quality banter.
If you’re looking for a little more adventure, head on in to try their secret dish. Ask for the “pink lamb” and find out a little more info from there!
Inside, the fit-out takes its cue from the food ethos, stripped back and simple but oh-so good. White-washed walls and dim neon lighting add real atmosphere to this small, inviting space where you can sit at the bar and watch the lamb sizzling on the spit and smoke rising from the grill.
With this standout joint joining neighbouring restaurants like Super Combo and Il Verde, it’s safe to say that King Street is set to become the King of the Brisbane food scene.
