Cheap eats #35

Did you have a bit of a chocolate blow out over Easter? Ate your weight in those gold Lindt bunnies and hot cross buns, then went to have a few drinks on the long weekend and realised you were tapped out? Well before you go hunting for leftover chocolate eggs to eat for dinner, check out this week’s tasty cheap eats to get you through. NKB Express | Indooroopilly Stop the hanger and beef up your day with a proper meal. NKB Express is beckoning in starving students (and general foodies, of course) with their chicken wing bargain. For just $15, you’ll get a gorge-tastic bucket of fiery buffalo wings, accompanied by the customary (and totally drool-worthy) blue cheese sauce. For those thinking this would be a perfect meal to share with a friend or two, NKB will even pair the bucket of wings with 4 Budweisers for $40 on Fridays. Sounds like the perfect cheap Friday wind-down to us! The Red Lion Hotel | Moorooka The new-and-improved Red Lion Hotel may be all spruced up, but it’s still not too hoity-toity to plate up tasty meals that won’t break the bank. Avoid the dirty dishes with Red Lion’s weekday lunch and dinner $15 specials. You can grab a cheap chicken parmy on Mondays, a rump steak special on Tuesdays and fish and chips on Wednesdays (they’re bass-ically giving them away!). Each main meal comes with chips and a salad, so your belly will well-and-truly get its money’s worth here. You can probably afford another few pints of beer with these savings!
