Cheap eats #33

Just got back from your annual Japan ski trip and realised you may have overestimated the power of the dollar? Or perhaps you really ‘rose’ to the occasion on Valentine’s Day – and left yourself with nothing but a thorny bank balance. Either way, you need some hardcore recovery time to save up that Easter binge (your giant gold Lindt bunny is waiting!). Don’t go rifling through your canned goods – we’ve got some spots to tide you over. Catchment Brewing Co | West End Don’t choose between a beer and a hearty lunch (let’s face it: beer isn’t as filling as we all wish it was!). At Catchment Brewing Co, you can grab a delicious brew while taking advantage of their burger of the week deal. The nominated burger is $10 with any drink purchase from 12pm-3pm Tuesday to Friday. Chow Down | CBD Step away from that meat pie! The CBD can drain your funds in a heartbeat, but this Asian fusion joint serves up fresh main meals like massaman beef and nasi goreng for just $10 with every drink purchase. The deal is on the table (literally) Mondays through Fridays from 4pm-7pm – just in time for happy hour. Your savings come in Australian currency or delicious, delicious dumplings on the side. Now stop avoiding that Easter egg aisle, and stand up tall when you see those hot cross buns! Words by Samantha Chariton
