Eating Australia Part 2: Brisbane, The Gold Coast, and a Final Meal in Sydney

So after about 5 days exploring Sydney, we hopped on a plane and rode about an hour north up the seaboard to the Gold Coast.  This was where my brother was studying and where we would spend the next 5 days.  The Gold Coast is about an hour train ride south of Brisbane and despite being surrounded by beautiful beaches, my brother wanted to take us to Australia's 3rd most populated city.  First of all, the city was beautiful.  The architecture and infrastructural layout was marvelous.  Anyways, we were headed to the Brisbane Farmers Market that my brother had been to before, and after a few wrong turns we stumbled across a sea of canopies set up in the central business district.  This market had more fresh produce than prepared food, but there were still plenty of options for eating.  Check it all out after the jump.
