About Comuna Cantina - Brisbane

Comuna Cantina’s two locations – here in Brisbane’s CBD and in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast – are true clubhouses devoted to Latin American culinary culture. The menu ranges from market treats and street snacks to Venezualan and Colombian arepas, Mexican tacos and Mesoamerican-style burgers, salads, sides and salsas galore. It’s all best approached with one of Comuna Cantina’s many, varicolored cocktail concoctions in hand, of course, and you’d best book ahead. This crazy busy spot in the Queen Street mall – accessed from Albert Street as well – has very limited opening times. Seats are sought after.

More about Comuna Cantina - Brisbane, Brisbane CBD

Let’s tackle the long conga line of Comuna Cantina’s menu piece by delicious piece. Starting small but with no less a bang are the CBD restaurant’s street snacks and market treats, built from the ground up atop those ancient, taken-for-granted South American staples that have become familiar to anyone that eats: corn and potatoes. Here, simple grilled corn on the cob is spiked with chipotle aioli and queso fresco. The old bowl of wedges becomes a bowl of sweet potato chips served with aioli and queso fresco and sprinkled with rosemary and smoked paprika. Less familiar starches – plantains – are dunked in guacamole and pico de gallo. And we haven’t even really fired up to what else is on offer at this essential Brisbane eatery...

Latin American locals in Brisbane will drool at the sight and smell of Comuna Cantina’s arepas, taco pocket’s packed with pulled pork, marinated prawns, roasted sweet potato and other fillings that have become a staple among Venezuelan and Columbian communities. The classic tacos with chargrilled chicken, pulled pork or chia and coconut-crumbed fish with pineapple salsa are themselves enough of a drawcard to pull hordes of Mexican food fans through the Albert Street and Queen Street mall’s entranceways. If you’re all taco’d out and hungry for a Latin American-flavoured restaurant in the CBD, whack the same fillings in a burger and wash it all down with some of Comuna’s fantastic house cocktails!
