It seems like Brisbane’s love for American food has grown in the past year with quite a few new American restaurants opening up. Mighty Mighty is one such restaurant that I recently stumbled across. It is located just a stones throw away from the popular James Street Market in the Valley. Whilst parking can be a nightmare in that area sometimes, thankfully they offer 3 hours complimentary undercover parking on Connor Street with validation.
The restaurant’s layout suggests they are going for the minimalist modern approach. The menu offers soul food and a wide selection of craft beer.
For starters, we ordered Jalapeño Corn Bread ($3.5pp). It was well baked and held together nicely. The scent of jalapeño was evident but the flavour not overpowering. The butter / spread accompanied it well but it could be eaten without also.
For mains we shared a plate of Mighty Mighty Hot Wings ($14) and a Slider Board ($19).
We opted for the politically correct hot wings, described as a ‘mild pepper hot sauce’. The flavour was good but was not hot at all so maybe next time we will try some of the others. The menu included 7 other varieties some of which looked pretty interesting such as “sriracha honey and garlic” and “Cola BBQ”.
The slider board was served with fries and Mayo and had 3 varieties: pulled brisket, pulled pork and popcorn shrimp. They were all pretty good but surprisingly the popcorn shrimp stole the show. The fries were also pretty good, dusted with paprika for a bit of extra kick. The pulled beef and pork were really tender and seasoned well.
If we had more appetite we would have tried the ribs. Perhaps we will return again.
