Where to get a takeaway feed for the State of Origin

The State of Origin final is here, and we get that you’re more preoccupied with anxiety about whether we’re going to re-gain our title than what the squad will be eating on the night. Beer and having enough seats always comes as a forethought to food, so we’ve compiled a list of the best takeaway spots around, most with delivery AND online ordering systems, to make sure everyone is well-fed before the big game. No matter what the craving or Origin-night superstition dinner you must have, you’ll find a tasty meal that you can eat with one hand while you hold a brew with the other at these life-saving places. Getta Burger | Carina Add Getta Burger to your Origin decider night and you’ll be sure to have a winning night, whether your team does or not. House smoked bacon, homemade brisket, pulled pork, and freshly ground beef patties make up the foundation for these burgers. Add some smoked salt fries, extra cheese, and perhaps a milkshake if you’ve still got room. Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine | New Farm Yeah, we know, Americana is the rage right now. But BBQ wings are so predictable! Tandoori chicken wings on the other hand… And chicken pakoras – kind of Indian chicken nuggets – are the bees knees. Plus they have every curry you could possibly crave and plenty of naan to clean your plate with. Chop Chop | Greenslopes Get all the classics like beef and black bean, sweet and sour pork, lemon chicken and spring rolls in value packs for 2-4 people, or order from the huge range of other dishes on the menu (honey prawns, hello!) and receive 20% off of your first order. More money to pool on beer! Vespa Pizza | Newstead & Woolongabba Choose whichever Vespa location is most convenient for you or just have the goods delivered right to your door. There’s red sauce bases, white garlic-y ones, and all the meaty toppings you dream about (the mushroom and salami with truffle oil is a G&G fave). You’ll never eat non-wood-fired again. Villa Maria | Camp Hill Amazingly authentic dishes made with homemade spices from generations of family recipes, Villa Maria’s Mexican take out menu boasts almost everything you can order when dining in. With 9 different taco fillings plus over 30 mains to choose from, you might miss the start of the game because of indecision. Rice Paddy Thai | Everton Park All you need to know is that the Rice Paddy Spicy Wings are a must order: boneless chicken wings stuffed with chicken mince, garlic, pepper, lime leaves, beans, capsicum and tossed with panang curry paste. You heard it here first: Asian chicken wings are taking over the food scene. Fishmonger’s Wife | Hawthorne The Fishmonger’s Wife does dish up a selection or burgers and schnitzels to please those not in the mood for fish, but really, there’s nothing better than fresh battered fish, crispy beer battered chips and a bucket of tartare sauce to keep your hands busy while you yell at the TV for 80+ minutes. Mario Sarti | Toowong When you’re on the losing side, a big bowl of pasta can be just as comforting as another beer. Luckily, Mario Sarti’s takeaway menu boasts pasta and main Italian dishes galore, alongside one-handed starters like crispy whitebait and smoked mozzarella arancini balls with chilli jam and garlic aioli. Just tell your guests to BYO TV dinner table. Queenslandahhhhhh!! Words by Taylare Maddern
