Cheap eats #27

The aftermath of Oktoberfest and Melbourne Cup: a two-week hangover, lingering horse puns, several outfits you’ll probably never wear again, and an empty bank account from the bet you placed thinking you would win A Trip to Paris (misleading name, we know). To top it all off, you’ve realised there’s less than 5 weeks until Christmas and you haven’t even bought a single present. It’s time to tighten your belt – but you can still eat well with cheap eats in Brisbane. Miss Kay’s | CBD Got a fiver to spare? Scrape together your loose change and grab yourself a $5 bacon and egg burger from Miss Kay’s for breakfast. With crispy fried bacon and gooey eggs stacked in a buttery brioche bun and with smoky barbeque sauce, it’s a morning meal worth skipping your cereal for. The hearty buns are available for $5 every Monday to Friday from 7am-10:45am. Collective Kitchen and Bar | CBD With good food, good coffee coffees, a sweet drinks list and some daily deals that will have you staying in the city just about every night, the new Collective Kitchen and Bar and winning over broke people everywhere. Tuck into two-for-one pizzas on Tuesdays, 50c buttermilk fried chicken ribs on Wednesdays, a burger and tap beer for $16 on Thursdays and $2 oysters and scallops on Fridays. Before you know it, it will be payday again and you will have made it through the week without going hungry. Now, where did we see that sale on Christmas decorations? Words by Sarah Nguyen
