On Lonely Planet's Hot List
You don’t have to travel the world to find new great flavours, but we did it anyway.
While others spent their nights in Thailand neck-deep in Sangsom buckets, Mal went in search of the World’s Best Pad Thai. While others spend their London evenings chasing Libertines through Camden dive bars, Bec perfected her relishes and chutneys.
Of course that’s only half true. Travellers that they are Mal and Bec saw the sun rise over the Hat Rin beaches, Full Moon Partying in their wake, the taste of salt air and street meat still fresh on their lips.
While self-professed “food geek” Mal did dutifully note the flavour combinations through Asia and Europe, they scarcely could have imagined the outlet the Lady Marmalade Cafe would afford them.
Now it has come full circle. The memories still fresh in their minds of Las Ramblas baguettes, of Borough Markets tapenades and Hoi An’s dumpling soups, now Mal and Bec’s dusty old Lonely Planet guide’s are given new life and vindication by Lady Marmalade’s inclusion on Lonely Planet’s Brisbane Hotlist.
