Where to eat on Mondays

Who was it that decided Monday nights were made for staying at home?

Forget watching reruns on the couch and heating up a microwave meal because you forgot to defrost your steak–despite its reputation, there are plenty of delicious spots across the gourmet spectrum to dine out on a Monday!

Hai Hai Ramen | Paddington

There’s no better place to get down and slurpy than at this Paddington favourite! Head down during ramen hour (5pm-6pm) to score a delicious bowl of their classic tonkotsu or vegan ramen for just $10, or corn for $5 (trust us, get the damn corn). 

Superfly Pizza| Woolloongabba

If Mondays get you down, then get down to Superfly to perk up with a cheesy pizza containing all the major food groups (see Mum, we’re being healthy!). All of their pizzas, like the roast pumpkin pizza with honey, rocket, thyme, blue cheese, and mozzarella, are just $15 on Monday nights.

Il Verde | King Street

For the marathon of the week ahead, carb loading on a Monday seems not only intelligent but necessary. Il Verde is here to prepare your body for another work week with their $15 pizza or pasta express lunches every Monday from 12pm to 2pm. We’ll have a pizza that!

Bird’s Nest Restaurant | Various Locations

Just another manic Monday? Well, not need to run around like a headless chicken – simply flock into Bird’s Nest instead! This Japanese restaurant’s grilled yakitori skewers are not only divine, but also priced at just $3 all Monday long.

Il Posto | Paddington

Pizzas don’t need a psychology degree to solve our problems–especially when they’re just $15! Thin, saucy, crispy and satisfying from 5:30pm… the guys at Il Posto certainly know how to turn Monday into Mon-yay.

Otto | CBD

It’s undeniably hard to find a fine-diner on a Monday night – lucky Otto delivers every night of the week! Start off with perfectly buttered focaccia with anchovies, move on to a plate of pasta, and wrap up your Monday mangiare with a dessert of frozen mango curd – you have a whole week ahead of you, after all. 

SK Steak and Oyster| Fortitude Valley

Having only recently opened their doors on a Monday, now you can enjoy premium seafood (hello, lobster cocktail) and perfectly cooked steaks every night of the week at this old-school James Street hub! 

Stokehouse Q | South Bank

Monday calls for mod… mod-Australian, that is! Stop by Stokehouse for a riverside treat featuring pepperberry-cured king salmon, spiced churros with sweetcorn and lemon myrtle, and grilled shellfish with Stokehouse butter sauce, finger lime and sea succulents – stoked!

Looks like we’ll be needing that extra coffee on Tuesday…
