Cheap eats #10

Whoever invented online shopping has a lot to answer for. The ease with which we can click a button and get gourmet cheeses and chocolate chip nut butters on their way to our door is often the sole reason we’re left living on stale bread and said cheese and nut butters for the week. But before you say no to that invitation to head out for a bite to eat because you’ve got nothing in your wallet but a $10 note, check out our cheap eats in Brisbane. Archive Beer Boutique & Bistro | West End West End’s Archive Beer Boutique are here to make sure the day before payday isn’t always leftovers day. Their Wednesday two-for-one meals are the perfect excuse to head out for some pub tucker and great craft beer. Get your hungry on for a classic chicken parmy, wok fried king prawns and calamari or a hefty Angus beef sirloin steak from the grill. Be warned though – the place gets filled to the brim quickly, just like your beers will.  International Hotel | Spring Hill If you’ve got a hankering for a pizza and beer, International Hotel’s $10 daily pizza special is a steal you should not pass up. Paired with a Hipwood organic brew or IPA, the rustic Italian feed will settle your stomach on loose change alone. Inspired by the gastropubs of Europe, this boutique brewery needs to be at the top of your top to do’s for a brilliant budget bite! Say goodbye to peanut butter sandwiches and hello to decent, delish and discounted! Words by Julia Burgess
