“Life is too short – enjoy”
Litse Lounge is a welcome surprise. I say ‘surprise’ because it is located at the Great Western Super Centre shopping complex on the corner of Samford and Settlement Rds, Keperra. Now, I have nothing against shopping centres (for buying groceries!) but they are really not the sort of place I would imagine finding a licensed restaurant of the calibre of Litse Lounge.
It’s a family business, opened by the Chrisanthou family in 2005, and a sibling of their equally good Portabella Restaurant in Albany Creek. Not only the locals love this place. Litse won the Café Restaurant of the Year for Brisbane and the Darling Downs at the 2013 Savour Australia Hostplus Awards for Excellence, proving it has attracted a much wider audience.
Air conditioned inside, with lots of undercover seating outside surrounded by potted plants, Litse is open for lunch and dinner every day and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. They also offer the benefits of Club Litse with a changing array of special offers.
As well as traditional entree, main and dessert offerings, there is a good range of tapas and the excellent value lunch specials: one-course $14.90, two-course $22, three-course $29.
If I was ‘forced’ to choose from each course, I would heartily recommend: stuffed button mushrooms (cream cheese, reggiano, bacon, garlic, parsley) for entrée, chilli prawn linguine (Mooloolaba king prawns, spinach, chilli, garlic, parsley) for main and sticky date pudding (spiced rum caramel, vanilla bean ice cream & double cream) for dessert.
Let’s face it – Remember, ‘Life Is Too Short, Enjoy’! Litse is a much better option than grocery shopping!
