Pick Up The Phone, These Brisbane Restaurants Are All Now Dishing Up Takeaway Feeds

There’s no denying it, coronavirus/COVID-19, whatever you want to call it, has us all shook. But before you go stockpiling minced meat and eggs (seriously, please stop), it’s important to take a moment to think about not just ourselves but people and businesses that will be affected by mass closures and loss of livelihoods.

It’s important to us that all of Brisbane’s fantastic venues know that we're on their side. Right now is a pretty worrying time to be a small restaurant, cafe or bar in Brisbane, so we’ll continue to champion the independent businesses across town in any way we can. 

Uber Eats and Deliveroo are both launching contact free delivery, so if you’re stuck in quarantine you can still get your favourite takeaway without having to resort to wearing a full body containment suit. But a heap of restaurants around town are also offering up their own dining at home experience, so whether you want fine dining or just your favourite local spot in the isolation of your lounge room, here’s who to call (after sanitising your phone). Some are even offering delivery to help keep their staff employed—check with individual venues for options.

Central

Gauge 

South Brisbane

Date night just got fancy again. Whether you choose a few dishes from their takeaway menu or just let them feed you with a banquet worthy selection, make sure you add a pre-mixed cocktail or two from their boozy neighbours over at Maker. Check the menu and order here

Baja 

Fortitude Valley 

Old El Paso sold out? Never fear, Baja is here, dishing up their incredible tacos with the ingredients all served seperately for you to assemble at home. Add some sides and you've got a taco night better than you've ever had before—just call, email or even DM to order for pick up.

Gerard's Bistro

Fortitude Valley

The venue may have closed its doors for the time being, but the amazing menu from Head Chef Adam Wolfer is still available for takeaway. Check their Instagram page for their nightly menu, but make sure you order early—they've been selling out most nights. 

Rogue Bistro 

Newstead 

Back down from service in light of the lockdown? Not Rogue Bistro, who are instead doing dinner, booze and dessert to takeaway seven days a week and are also bringing back the weekend brunch. Oh happy day. 

Drum Dining 

Newstead 

Let's face it—you'll never be able to do a decent crispy pork belly or eye fillet steak at home, so you may as well just order it in from Drum Dining. Add some croquettes and haloumi and you've got one epic meal to go with your Netflix.

Three Blue Ducks 

Brisbane CBD

You rejoiced when they finally opened in Brisbane, and now you can rejoice again, with Three Blue Ducks coming to your lounge room. Call up to get their menu made up for takeaway. 

Nota 

Paddington

Let's face it, you're never going to be able to cook a Nota level meal a home, so why try? Just head to their Instagram page instead, where you'll find a menu of vacuum packed dishes to sous vide at home, as well as individually plated items. Pick up, heat, serve, voila! 

Montrachet 

King Street

Can’t go a single week without Montrachet’s iconic crab souffle? Lucky for you, they’ll be dishing up some of their signature menu items to take away and finish at home, complete with an easy-to-follow video to demonstrate how to ensure it’s perfect. Check their Facebook page for details on how to order..

Naïm 

Paddington 

Food is the glue that holds everyone together—so Naïm is making sure that we can get our hands on their Middle Eastern dishes no matter what. They've got a selction of dishes available to assemble at home, with pick up available from 10am-5pm. 

Tartufo 

Fortitude Valley 

Tartufo will be offering a full take away service, not to mention fresh and frozen products if you want to pretend you cooked it all yourself. Check out their website for all the details.

Cheeky Poke 

Newstead, West End and Greenslopes

Cheeky Poke have taken their usual takeaway option up a notch, and are now doing BYO and DIY poke bowls, tacos and soups that will set you up for 2-3 days, not just one meal. Order on Bobble for delivery or pick up.

Motorwagen will bring both their delicious lunches and dinners and their new homestyle menu of cooked, ready-to-warm meals to you, with delivery from Monday to Friday. Head to their website for all the details. WFH roast chicken lunch? Yes please. 

Alchemy 

Brisbane City 

If you’re one of the few people left in Brisbane CBD’s office buildings, you’re probably thinking ‘Great! No queues for lunch!’ Well, maybe not, but it definitely crossed your mind. Even better than takeaway, Alchemy will be dishing up some of the dishes on their fancy pants menu for takeaway (email them for the list), and will deliver to the CBD. 

Proof BBQ & Booze 

Wilston 

There may be nothing but those weird flexitarian snags left in the supermarkets, but Proof BBQ & Booze is still smoking up a damn good brisket and full rack and ribs—all you have to do is order it. Order on Bopple and they'll even deliver. 

Same Same 

Fortitude Valley 

Been wanting to try Same Same but haven't been able to get a table? Well now's your chance, because they're dishing up their entire menu takeaway, and will bring it out to the carpark for you—including the red curry of Angus beef cheek.

e'cco bistro 

Newstead

If there's one takeaway dish that we're probably going to be ordering every week, it's e'cco bistro's family-sized slow cooked lamb shoulder, complete with mint, crushed peas, broccolini and salsa verde. Order by phone and when you pop over to pick it up, they'll run it out to your car. 

Greenhouse Canteen 

South Brisbane
