There are so many Noosa restaurants to choose from nowadays that even deciding where to go for dinner can be a chore! Well, not quite, but you get what I'm saying. To simplify things, today we're going to narrow the parameters a little and talk about restaurants in Noosa that offer farm-fresh local produce. Why? Well, there's no better food than fresh food for a start. But more importantly, these restaurants don't just sell great food, they boost the local economy and help create sustainable local industries which can flourish for years to come. Sound good? Thought so.
Best Noosa Restaurants
Luckily, there's no compromise on taste, as many of the best Noosa restaurants use locally sourced produce. But we're going to ignore Noosa Heads, Noosa Beach and to be honest, the entire rest of the Sunshine Coast, in favour of one little gem that opened up this year. Nestled in the foothills of Mount Cooroora, you might think the little town of Pomona has little to offer in the way of top food. But you'd be wrong. The Pomona Distilling Company are putting this little town on the map, and it's not just the home-distilled gin we're talking about.
With a beautiful setting and a menu hand-picked to match perfectly with the drinks on offer, these guys provide a dining experience to rival any Noosa restaurant. In a beautiful setting, with a lovingly handcrafted interior made from nearly 100% reclaimed materials, and ample outdoor space, there are few better places to kick back and enjoy locally produced food and fresh seafood from the Sunshine Coast alongside a locally distilled gin. It's worth noting that even the gin itself, Pomona Signature Dry Gin, is made with locally sourced botanicals, which is why we think this is one of the best restaurants Noosa has produced this year.
Best Fish And Chips In Noosa
Top of the menu, is in our opinion the best fish and chips Noosa has to offer. A bold claim maybe, with so many restaurants offering this classic. The line-caught barramundi works perfectly in light tempura batter, and the yellow curry-spiced chips add a touch of intrigue. The fact it pairs perfectly with the signature gin is another huge plus. Elsewhere on the menu is the yellow curry-spiced calamari, which is available as one of the small plate options for sharing or as a main. Locally sourced produce also features in the amazing Bao Buns, which are available with pork belly, beef brisket or locally grown vegetables.
Also highly recommended are delicious Buffalo Chicken Wings, Chicken Parmy and a revolving curry of the day (available for vegetarians also). And of course, they offer a dizzying array of gin cocktails to go with your food, and a decent wine list. So if you're looking for great food and great drink, in a beautiful rural setting, then this place really does take some beating. If you're looking for a restaurant with locally sourced produce, right down to the botanicals in the gin, this is it. With the building even built from reclaimed local materials, this is an excellent opportunity to support the Noosa economy, whilst treating yourself to a great day out. Make a reservation at Pomona Distilling Co. today and enjoy a wonderful evening.
