CHEAP EATS OF THE WEEK! | The Gourmand & Gourmet


Decided that the shoes/plane tickets/bottle of whisky was more important than eating this week? Yeah, we get it and you’re probably right. So by the time Tuesday rolls around and you’ve accepted that you’re not actually willing to cry into a bowl of mi goreng each night, consider yourself sorted. We’ve done the cheap eats snooting for you! Brooklyn Depot | Southbank Single digit dollar burgers anyone? When it’s this cheap, the calories definitely don’t count. Get yourself in to Brooklyn Depot between 3-6pm during the week and feast on $6 cheeseburgers and $8 chicken and vege burgers! And as if our decadent selves couldn’t be more pleased, $1 wings are also on offer. Birds Nest | West End & Fortitude Valley Any lunch menu that includes the word unlimited is alright in our books! Fuel up on this unlimited rice and miso soup combo with one of six $12 lunch specials including bincho grilled slow braised pork belly with Japanese mustard and mayo, or the tare-infused katsu curry with crispy, panko fried chicken! The best bit? You can wash down you’re your unlimited rice with $8 Sake, beer or wine. Words by Ashley Beith.
