Bragging in Brisbane: restaurant proud of stars

Restaurant inspection disclosure in Brisbane (that’s in Australia) sucks because it’s voluntary: only two stars out of five? No need to post.

The South Bank parklands on the river is a 10-minute-train-ride away, or a 25-minute bike ride. It’s a fairly awesome gathering point with beach, playgrounds, and street markets. The girls and I went there to chill on Sunday morning and grabbed a bite at one of the many cafes.

The particular place was not only displaying its 4-out-of-5 star rating on the door, but had it written in letters on a large display within the restaurant. The Aqua Café was proud of its rating and wanted to make sure customers knew; above and beyond what government required.
