For gourmets on a budget
Wallet is looking a bit bare but not quite at the level of $2 steak night at the pub? Perhaps you need to impress someone on a budget and cheap tacos just won't cut it? Never fear. There's a classy meal deal for every day of the week around Brisbane:
Two for one mac'n'cheeses at South Side Diner might not be good for the waistline but they're good for the budget at only $15! Order them with some of the Diner's enormous Buffalo wings.
Paella Mondays @ Peasant (Paddington) Spice up your Monday with Paella for two at Peasant for $20. Add a jug of Sangria for another $20 and really get things going.
Magnum Mondays @ Anise (New Farm) Four fabulous courses for $45. That works out to $11.25 a course. Need I say more?
Tapas & Tequila Tuesday @ Canvas (Woolloongabba) Canvas knows how to do cheap Tuesday properly with a tapas platter and a Margarita for $20pp. This one you have to share as there's a two person minimum.
Wednesday Rum & Rent Party @ Next Door Kitchen & Bar (Southbank) Hump deals come with swinging tunes at Next Door: get two share plates, wings and a rum cocktail jug for $50.
All you can eat Sushi @ Zuri (Fortitude Valley) It's debatable whether you could eat $19 worth of sushi in 90 minutes but Zuri gives you the chance to find out once and for all.
