These are mad times, ladies and gentlemen, and frankly, the only thing keeping us sane is copious amounts of food, booze and Netflix. But if you’re looking for a side of dark pandemic humour with your next takeaway meal, we’ve got two venues for you.
Canvas and Electric Avenue in Woolloongabba have both opted to switch up their menus and start dishing up takeaway, but rather than just putting their tapas, burgers and pizzas into cardboard cartons and calling it a day, they’ve embraced the pandemic head on.
Thanks to owner Dan Rodriguez’s creativity, they are now officially dishing up tapas for quarantine at Canvas, and self-isolation salads (are salads ever a group activity?), social distancing plates and work from home burgers at Electric Avenue.
The funniest menu items of them all, however, are Canvas’ Pizza Skype Party slices. There’s the ‘U Can’t Touch This,’ with mushrooms, mozzarella, truffle, artichoke, sun-dried tomato and rocket, and the ‘I Drink Alone,’ with salami, chorizo, bacon, jalapeno, mozzarella and sriracha aioli. We’re in stitches.
You can order everything on Uber Eats for delivery, but if you opt to call your order in and pick up, you can also order beers, wines and entire bottles of spirits off the secret drinks menu. Just like what’s behind the bar at Canvas and Electric Avenue’s speakeasy bar, Mrs J Rabbits, these spirits aren’t ones you’ll find at your local bottle shop, and bonus, they’re all 50% off.
So whatever leftovers you had planned for dinner, put ‘em in the freezer for another day, and order yourself a pandemic worthy feast at home from either Canvas or Electric Avenue. Check them out on Uber Eats, or head to their websites for contact details.
New lockdown laws take effect this week, here’s what they mean for you.
