New Toowong Eatery Hooch & Co Serves Up Asian-Inspired Bites

The newest restaurant to open in Toowong can be found inside the Jephson Hotel, in the space that used to house Covet Bar & Restaurant. Now, it’s the home of Hooch & Co, which serves up Asian-inspired food that shows the diverse community of Australia. 

Hooch & Co is from the same group that owns Barolos, the 25-year old Italian restaurant on Sherwood Rd. This new eatery offers familiar yet surprisingly different dishes based on Japanese, Korean, Malaysian and Vietnamese cuisines. 

For all-day dining, the Japanese cabbage pancake (Okonomiyaki) comes highly recommended. It’s filled with a blend of flavours from bacon, togarashi fried egg, kewpie, okonomi sauce, fried shallot, pickled ginger and sesame.  

Also quite popular is the Sandcrab Bagel Benedict (Sand crab and chive, poached eggs, gochujang hollandaise, fried shallots). The Breakfast Mee Goreng (Fried noodles, sambal and kecap manis sauce, smoked bacon, shallots, fried egg, puffed pork skin) may also satisfy a famished belly, whether it’s 7:00 a.m. or lunch.

Diners looking for plant-based options may also order a filling Big Breakfast. Lovers of anything sweet can joyfully indulge in the drool-worthy breakfast doughnuts.
