Parma Ladder (Updated to the end of October)
Here is the current ladder in the quest to find Brisbane’s Best Parma:
Parma Number 44: The Crown Hotel
The Verdict: In the aftermath of a fairly ordinary day on the punt (an 80-1 winner of the Melbourne Cup was not what I expected) I was looking for a chicken parmigiana of quality to little my floundered spirits. Whilst … Continue reading
Parma Number 43: The Stock Exchange Hotel … sometimes the easiest things are the most difficult to get right!
The Verdict: For the first time in a while my Parma test this week was in a CBD pub, in this case the Stock Exchange Hotel. This Parma had a lot of great elements but was let down by two … Continue reading

The Verdict: When the this parma first came out I raised an eyebrow at the salad portion because, to be frank, I did not think it looked very good. Whilst eating the Archive Beer Boutique parma it became apparent that … Continue reading
Parma Number 38: Kedron Wavell Services Club … when a photo isn’t worth a thousand words
The Verdict: I have been told a few times this week that the photo I posted on the Brisbane’s Best Parma Instagram of the Kedron Wavell chicken parmigiana looked really good. What a shame that the image posted was deceiving … Continue reading
