Student hanger-busters at NKB Express

Hunting down an affordable meal that doesn’t include the words ‘Mi Goreng’ is a challenge for many a studious uni or high school goer. But never fear, hangry students, Indooroopilly’s NKB Express has put together two drool-inducing combos for you to chow down on without fear of using up all your bus money. There’s no longer a need to throw your textbooks and scientific calculators at the wall in fits of hanger induced rage, or to wait until you get home for a feed only to find there’s nothing but half an avocado (when could you afford an avocado?) and a year old jar of mustard in the fridge. Now you can get yourself a burger and a Budweiser or a milkshake (for those not of a legal drinking age) to satisfy your post-study food feels, all for the wallet-happy price of $15. Yes, fifteen smackeroos and you’ve soothed your very long, group assignment ruined day with some booze and a burger. Cue sigh of relief. When everything else in your school day has let you down, and the tuckshop’s soggy pies just didn’t cut it, you’ve got a Wagyu beef or a chickpea burger waiting to calm your soul. If you’ve just faced down a two hour essay exam and lost, there’s nothing better than the bacon jam packed Meatpacker beef burger to improve your mood, but the feta packed Soho vegetarian burger can provide some equally tasty relief. But when you know you’ve got a long afternoon ahead, start your day with an NKB Express milkshake, honestly, they’re Brisbane’s best. Pop in for lunch and dampen your distaste for evening uni classes, as the deal runs all day when you present your student card. Procrastinate all that study you’ve got to do and check out the diner here, so you know where to head and can plan your bus route accordingly. Food on a uni day – the sooner the better. You’ll find NKB Express at 100 Coonan Street in Indooroopilly, with their doors open from 7.30am until 7pm Tuesday to Thursday and Sunday, and 9pm Friday to Saturday. Words by Lucille Burkitt Keeping the G&G up to date with all the latest tasty tidbits requires a lot of double lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. But rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are really nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
