Bundaberg Lunchbox owners Paul and Bronwyn Durston's easy, go-to dish is okonomiyaki, Japanese savory pancakes.

Their lives revolve around food, and even after the toughest day in the kitchen at their shop they still enjoy creating great dishes from quality-local produce.

One of the go-to dishes the couple enjoys making is okonomiyaki, Japanese savory pancakes, in which they use locally-grown cabbage purchased from Bundaberg suppliers, and mushrooms grown at Moore Park Beach.
