But Shortgrain is not just going to be a place for amazing food. It’s a culinary treasure trove waiting to be discovered. They will also stock the shelves with homemade curry pastes, imported products, and the freshest ingredients you can imagine. 

From crunchy snake beans to fragrant Thai basil, each item is carefully chosen to create an authentic experience that will leave you wanting more.

The mastermind behind this culinary haven is none other than the award-winning Sydney chef, Martin Boetz. After leaving a mark on Sydney’s food scene with his extraordinary talent, Chef Boetz has now brought his expertise to his hometown of Brisbane.
