Cheap eats #1

You lucked out this week. You had to pay your phone bill, put petrol in your car, fund the place where you lay your head on a week night, and you’re about to open your last packet of instant noodles. Save it for your next 2am feed because the fun doesn’t have to stop just because the money has. This week’s cheap eats in Brisbane will get you fed for less than a twenty. The Brunswick Social | $15 Basement Banquet *Now closed* This gem is easy to miss, with its discrete entry way to a very cool basement bar. But don’t let that fool you, it has big things to offer, at a very low price. The Brunswick Social have a 7 course Yum-Cha basement banquet for $15 per person. You’ll be treated to a parade of share including plates of fries, three kinds of dumplings, fluffy pork buns and more. Plus, they offer some pretty cheap cocktails, starting at around $10, so you’ll be on the floor shovelling down edamame in no time. The Flying Cock | $10 Burger special We can’t think of a better way, to spend a hot, easy, summer’s night out, than drinking ciders at The Flying Cock in Fortitude Valley. Say good riddance to your working week and take full advantage of The Flying Cock’s Friday night burger deal. Grab any burger on the menu for $10 with any drink purchase. The bargain dinner is available from 5pm-7pm on Friday nights, perfect timing for those off week pay cycles. Will it be the stuffed mushroom and vintage cheddar on brioche? The grilled eggplant and haloumi? Perhaps the chilli pork and corn chip Mexican madness? Only one way to find out! (Check their Facebook page before hand if eggplant doesn’t do it for you). Don’t let a lack of funding stop you from feasting!
