Cheap Eats #22

Whether you just spent an entire weeks pay on a juicer to kick that summer detox into second gear or you’ve given up food entirely to fund (and prepare for) an upcoming trip to an island in the Pacific, you’re probably running a bit low on funds right about now. But there’s no need to go hungry just yet (you’ve got WEEKS to get that six pack ready), not with cheap eats in Brisbane like these! The Fox Hotel | South Brisbane We all love ‘unlimited’ anything, but have you ever seen it before the really important things in life? You know, bacon, cheese or even fries? Probably not, but you’re about to, because The Fox Hotel are dishing up Steak Frites with unlimited frites every Tuesday. Unlimited. Frites. With any drink purchase, you can nab yourself a 300g Darling Downs porterhouse steak with Café de Paris sauce and all the fries you can eat for $19. Can we stay for lunch AND dinner? Peel Street Grill & Cellar | South Brisbane Want a gourmet lunch without the price tag you haven’t a hope of being able to afford until you’re a CEO? Head to the new Peel Street Grill & Cellar, where they’ve got an express menu that will have you believing you’ll be returning to a penthouse office with a view. Tuck into a double cheese Angus beef burger with bacon and onion jam, or a steak sandwich with all the trimmings for just $10 at lunchtime. At that price, you can even grab a side of fries and aioli. You big spender you. So much tastier than a green juice. And probably cheaper. Words by Rebecca Grady
