  1. Hi Keira,

    Thanks so much for organizing this post and noting my reopening. It is tough times but appreciate supporters like you making a real difference for us.

    Thanks also for your kind review of my shop which I am fearful will attract skepticism for my bribing you or something!!


  2. Hi Taro,

    Your ramen is genuinely good. No bribes required. I thought you may be interested to know that Volunteering Qld call centre is at 333 Adelaide Street and they are keen for people to bring meals to the centre for the staff who are working long shifts to coordinate the work. If you are able to help it would be appreciated. Just let me know [email protected].



  3. This is fantastic Keira – so helpful! I heard someone say similar things on the news the other night – one way to help is to get out there and spend money on local businesses. Get out there and support Brisbane food and tourism!

    Thanks again for compiling this list :)
