Where to eat on Mondays
Who was it that decided Monday nights were made for staying at home?
Despite its reputation, there are plenty of delicious spots across the foodie spectrum to dine out on a Monday in Brisbane!
HAI HAI RAMEN | PADDINGTON
There’s no better place to get down and slurpy than at this Paddington favourite! Hai Hai Ramen’s menu is uniquely packed with a range of vegan and gluten-free options making this joint ideal for groups with a range of dietary requirements.
BISOU BISOU | FORTITUDE VALLEY
Monday lunch on Brunswick Street just got a whole lot better… Blow a kiss to your work worries and blow off some steam at the dining destination, Bisou Bisou. Choose from a range of traditional dishes such as cod brandade beignets with saffron mayonnaise or Queensland seafood bouillabaisse with saffron rouille. Simply divine!
LES BUBBLES | FORTITUDE VALLEY
This Valley spot is cooking up steaks, shaking cocktails, and piling your plate high with fries seven days a week. After your meal, head down to the Bath House bar for a nightcap, and revel in the unique history of this funky space.
IL VERDE | KING STREET
For the marathon of the week ahead, carb loading on a Monday seems not only intelligent but necessary. Luckily for us, Il Verde is open and slinging plates of arancini, pizza, gnocchi al tartufo, and Nutella calzone.
FRITZENBERGER | VARIOUS LOCATIONS
On Mondays at Fritzenberger Petrie Terrace and Wilston you can nab juicy beef burgers, crispy chicken burgers, or fresh veggie burgers for a tenner! Simply order via their new table ordering system, and be sure to check out their website for other great value weekly deals…
SOUTHSIDE BISTRO | SUNNYBANK
Did someone say all-day Asian fusion? Start your week right by chowing down on some kimchi beef bao buns and slow sipping a photo-worthy matcha latte. Southside Bistro at Sunnybank is serving bold Asian flavours with a twist for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week.
HELLENIKA | FORTITUDE VALLEY
Set yourself up for a delicious week by feasting on saganaki, htapodi (grilled octopus), and hilopites (braised beef shin with pasta and tomato) to make your Monday a little bit Mediterranean. Oh, and baklava… duh.
GRECA | CBD
We can guarantee a trip to this glorious spot will cure your perpetual Mondayitis, Brisbane. Stop by for Monday night dinner and fill up on Greek share plates, plenty of wine and ouzo cocktails, and river views. Looks like we’ll be needing that extra coffee on Tuesday…
SUPERFLY PIZZA | WOOLLOONGABBA
If Mondays get you down, then get down to Superfly to perk yourself up with a cheesy pizza containing all the major food groups (see Mum, we’re being healthy!) for $17 every Monday (and Tuesday, too).
FELONS BREWING CO. | CBD
There’s something about this place… It just goes off every day of the week! Our picks? The contadina wood-fired pizza (fior di latte, red onion, pancetta, parmesan, and thyme) and the sugarcane prawn salad with mint, shiso, coriander, pineapple, fried shallots, and peanuts.
IL POSTO | PADDINGTON
Pizzas don’t need a psychology degree to solve our problems–especially when they’re just $17! Thin, saucy, crispy and satisfying from 5:30 pm… the guys at Il Posto certainly know how to turn Monday into Mon-yay!
BIRD’S NEST RESTAURANT | VARIOUS LOCATIONS
Just another manic Monday? Well, no need to run around like a headless chicken–simply flock into Bird’s Nest instead for $12 lunch specials, their famous yakitori grilled to order, and delicious Japanese sides.
LA CACHE A VIN | SPRING HILL
This homely French spot is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday, with their famous canard l’orange (roasted duck breast with potato boulangère, fioretto blossom and orange jus), confit onion soufflé, and classic roasted lamb ready to kick off your week in a gourmet way.
SAME SAME | FORTITUDE VALLEY
sAme sAme is serving up those fragrant South-East Asian flavours on a Monday night (and every night), and our weeks are better for it. Our go-tos are ALWAYS the fragrant roasted pork belly pad see ew, red curry with beef cheek, and deliciously briny oysters!
B. LUCKY AND SONS | FORTITUDE VALLEY
Don’t let the Monday blues get you down, play like it’s still Saturday at arcade and game bar B. Lucky and Sons! Settle that office rivalry once and for all over a high stakes game of Mario Kart or NBA Hoops. After you’ve destroyed your opponent, be sure to simmer down with an espresso martini and a delicious $15 pizza!
See, Mondays aren’t so bad after all!
