Max & Mason
Max & Mason is a unique Asian fusion restaurant and tea lounge within Fortitude Valley's Emporium dining and shopping precinct.
Combining the best of both Western and Asian flavours, Max & Mason specializes in delicious flaming charcoal grill meals and an extensive range of authentic bubble and hot and cold teas.
Diners have the option of both indoor and outdoor seating, with rustic timber tables and walls. Bar seating is also available, suitable for those enjoying a casual beverage or two.
On the menu are charcoaled chicken, pork and beef, which have been marinated in all sorts of Asian influenced flavours: from green curry to teriyaki chicken. The meats are then served however you please, whether that be with rice in a curry, within a wrap or even on a burger.
BBQ skewers are a popular dish amongst patrons; an easy handheld snack that comes in a variety of flavours such as asparagus dressed in bacon. Other bar snacks are also available to order if you would prefer a light meal, or something to munch on with your tea or alcoholic beverage.
It might take a while to decide which tea to order, as Max & Mason’s selection is quite the list. The huge selection of hot teas on offer include their delicious Tropical Paradise Tea as well as traditional teas, such as Japanese Roast Sencha Tea. There is also hot and cold milk tea, as well as cold fruit based teas. All can be ordered with tapioca pearls, for the true bubble tea experience.
There is also a range of alcoholic beverages available to purchase, including a range of Asian beers that complement the charcoaled meats perfectly.
