Have you been to Bulimba?

By Laura Frendon | 28th February 2019

The suburb of Bulimba offers a touch of village charm mixed with contemporary and urban features. Boasting fashion boutiques, cafés, restaurants, grocers, jewellers, hairdressers and so much more, it’s a great place to visit for a weekend of exploring. We’ve picked out a few of our favourite businesses to give you the perfect guide of the best spots in Bulimba.

Belle Property Bulimba

In a short period of time, Belle Property Bulimba has become the second highest performing agency in the 4171 postcode. In terms of relativity, their agents now out perform all competition, boasting quality over quantity, with four agents rather than 40.

Tony O’Doherty and his team at Belle Property Bulimba highly regard culture within the business, believing you cannot have a healthy and happy working environment if you are forced to compete internally. From a market point of view, he believes clarity around who the local experts are is essential to success, making them less at risk of becoming a volume agency, which is against Belle Property’s core values. Tony enjoys working within the industry, due to the incredible people he meets on a daily basis and knowing that when his job is done successfully, it can have an immeasurable effect on the buyer and the seller.

What really sets them apart from the rest is that they’re a service based agency. This means they don’t try to sell an unsuitable property to a buyer, because they will never pay a premium and the transaction will not be optimal. Instead,
they always remain honest and take the time to match the highest and best buyer with the most suitable commodity.


Burger Time 69

There’s nothing quite like a stacked juicy burger and a serve of loaded fries to satisfy the biggest of hunger cravings. Burger Time 69 offers an incredibly extensive range of hearty burgers, from classics such as the Philly Cheese Steak and BT Cheeseburger, to specialties like the Cajun Chicken, Death By Maple, and even a Vegan Pulled Pork. Offering street style vibes and options to dine in, takeaway, or deliver, it’s the perfect spot for a catch up with friends, a quick bite to eat, or a grand celebration. If you’re not quite up for a stomach filling burger, try out their loaded fries, tacos, chicken wings, or delicious milkshakes.


London Spice

Taking flavour, heat, and pace from the classic South-East Asian cuisine and adding in their own personality and style, the talented team from London Spice serve up scrumptious Indian and South- East Asian style food to Bulimba and its surrounds seven days a week. Diners will enjoy authentic meals beneath the dazzling neon lights, taking in their surrounds of sizzling plates and clinking wine glasses. It’s the perfect spot to take either family, friends, or lovers, with the team at London Spice full of knowledge, dedicated to good hospitality and serving you delicious food.


The Source Bulk Foods Bulimba

This zero-waste foodie heaven stocks a huge range of package free pantry staples, cooking essentials, specialty superfoods, and on-tap cleaning and personal care products. From gluten free and paleo, to vegan and organic, there are options for everyone’s dietary needs and ingredients you might struggle to find at the supermarket. The team at The Source Bulk Foods Bulimba encourage shoppers to make conscious decisions when it comes to doing the weekly shop and say goodbye to single use plastic packaging. When shopping at The Source Bulimba, you can take as much or as little product as you like and even choose to take in your own jars, containers and bottles from home to fill up, making it a zero-waste shopping experience.


Vietnamese Mint

Husband and wife team Tze and Tran started their own little eatery in Morningside in 2013, before relocating to Bulimba in 2016. With Vietnamese and Malaysian backgrounds between them, it’s certain that each dish is made as authentically as possible, incorporating only the freshest herbs and ingredients. Their menu ranges from rice paper rolls, Vietnamese salads, and Pho, to Singapore Noodles, Pad Thai and laksa, with all of their sauces and pastes made in store and cooked with Tze’s master stock. They’re always trying to create something new, recently producing unicorn noodles and magic noodles, which change colour as you eat them.
