Flavours of Ipswich is Good to Go!
Smoked BBQ ribs and wings with housemade BBQ, hickory and cola sauce, served with crunchy apple slaw and sweet potato wedges…that’s the showstopper you might want to seek out when visiting Jets Ipswich this month!
The North Ipswich venue, just across from Riverlink Shopping Centre, is home to another of Ipswich’s restaurants set in historic buildings.
The site has actually been a licensed venue since before 1880, firstly as the Unity Hotel then the Imperial Hotel from 1887, then the Cecil Hotel from 1904 which eventually made way for the Ipswich Jets Rugby League Football Club in 1998.
Much of the original architecture can be enjoyed in the front bar of this establishment which has been tastefully decorated with a large railway mural, a nod to the famed Queensland Rail workshops which launched the first rail services in the late 1800s and is still in operation today as well as housing a museum. Beyond this is a modern club venue with various dining areas.
For Flavours of Ipswich Head Chef Liu has created beautiful menus for a $25 two-course lunch and a $35 three-course dinner.
Start with bruschetta or pan fried scallops with white wine and bacon sauce on sesame rice, then for the main a 200grm grain fed, rump steak, served with chips, fresh garden salad and Bordelaise sauce or chicken saltimbocca wrapped with prosciutto and served with crushed chat potatoes and blanched broccolini, finished with mustard cream sauce.
For dinner, standouts include the aforementioned ribs and wings which vies in the mains slot with herb crusted salmon with creamy mash potatoes, garlic prawns, prawn crackers, blanched asparagus and lemon.
Desserts on offer are the banana fritter made in house and served with ice cream, salted caramel and toasted coconut or a coconut vanilla panna cotta with strawberry, raspberry, toasted coconut, passion fruit and mango puree.
Jets Ipswich general manager Teresa Cavill-Jones said she was excited about the opportunity to showcase what the club offers through Flavours of Ipswich: “We have an amazing and diverse menu and that’s all thanks to Liu and his passion for what he does,” she said. “This is a great way for us to show that we do a bit more than what people might think.”
