The Best Eats In Your City


Plate of meat

The river city is brimming with culinary hotspots that any foodie worth their salt (the pink Himalayan kind obvs) would salivate over. 

Transport yourself to Mexico at Carmen Tequileria nestled on vibing James Street in the Valley. Sip chilli margs and tuck into wagyu steak taquitos and don’t sleep on their brekky menu—the huevos rancheros are elite.

Throwback oysters, tasty share plates and expertly crafted cocktails while sinking into a leather Chesterfield at Electric Avenue.

Over at Mr Badgers, climb aboard the tram-style seating and feast on Euro-deli-inspired dishes like Italian meatballs, Spanish sardines and deep-dish Detroit-style pizzas.

Pull up a seat at the counter at Pilgrim by Fogata for Latin American eats, while the crispy barramundi yellow curry at Mai Gai is the kind of dish you’ll think about for weeks after. 

Already drooling? Head here to snag these tasty deals and discover more of them in Brisbane. 

Sunshine Coast

The Sunny Coast is punching well above its weight when it comes to its culinary scene—from international flavour bombs to fresh-from-the-trawler seafood.

Perched on the edge of Mooloolaba Beach, feel the fresh sea breeze on your face at The Baycrest, where their Asian fusion brekky menu is a local fave.

Unwind with a cocktail or three at Backlane Bar, while munching on tasty tapas like karaage chicken, seafood saganaki and prawn dumplings.

The dishes are always elite at Orleans Restaurant in Maroochydore. The sleek, moodily lit interior sets the stage for a delicious feast of French-inspired plates like sticky beef cheek served with potato and truffle soufflé.

Over at the wharf, watch the yachts sail into the dock while devouring authentic Italian eats at Il Vento—the wood-fired gamberi pizza loaded with wild-caught prawns is unreal. Want more seafood?

Make your way to Fish on Parkyn with dock-to-table dishes like crispy whole snapper with chilli tamarind and Moreton Bay bug linguini.

Gold Coast

Plate of tacos

The GC is brimming with so many incredible eateries, that your social cal is guaranteed to be absolutely packed. Fortunately, EatClub has snagged tasty deals at many of the coast’s top restaurants so your wallet needn’t take such a hit.

For Middle Eastern eats that will have you drooling from the moment you step inside the venue, head straight to Shiraz Persion and order the fesenjan, a slow-cooked sweet and sour stew of chicken, pomegranate, walnuts and honey.

Modern Californian eats meet Mexican flair at Isla Cantina, the coast’s newest taqueria. Pro tip: ask for a table on the deck.

For more Mexican delights, hit up Bonita Bonita in Mermaid Beach, or stroll to neighbouring D'La Rosa for a Spanish feast of innovative pintxos like chimichurri steak, honey-glazed eggplant and ceviche.

Room of people

Save your pennies without sacrificing your love of incredible food with EatClub’s amazing restaurant deals in Sydney.

If you haven’t yet paid a visit to Long Chim (how? why?), consider this your sign to tuck into Thai street food with a modern kick.

Should you find yourself hungry in Bondi, snagging a seat at Iberica is a no-brainer for tapas that will transport you straight to the Med.

Keep those Spanish vibes going at Deux Frères. It might be hidden down a laneway in Circular Quay, but once you pull up a stool at the marble-topped bar laden with pintxos, you’ll head straight to San Sebastian.

If laid-back Italian feasting is the vibe hit up Osteria Coogee, or get your fix of innovative Southeast Asian dishes at Ogni. Their smokey goat rezala has us in a chokehold this winter.

Ask anyone from Melbourne and they’ll tell you they have some of the best restaurants in the world - and honestly, we can’t argue with that, the food scene is seriously stacked. So what better way to discover more incredible spots than with EatClub? 

Some eateries that you’ll find on their app include ISH—the moodily lit Indian eatery in Fitzroy that locals and visitors can’t get enough of.

For seafood, sake and sushi that is plated like a piece of fine art (and has the flavour to back it up), swing by Sachi for dinner.

For more premium Japanese, Sake Hammer Hall in Southbank will never disappoint.

More of an Italophile? Al Dente, nestled in Carlton, is serving modern Italian dishes in a relaxed, fine dining setting. Think: gnocchi with rabbit sausage and buffalo cream, or Sicilian-style octopus with tomatoes, olives and squid ink.

Finally, if you take your brunch game as seriously as us (lowkey our fave hobby), then Collingwood’s Terror Twilight is non-negotiable. The black forest pancakes (sweet potato cakes, with berry compote, milo crumb, lemon balm and Bailey's syrup) will have you coming back for seconds. Plus they do a cracking Bloody Mary.

Two plates of food

Perth locals, this is your sign to round up the crew and finally organise that overdue catch-up at one of the city’s best restaurants with EatClub’s delicious deals.

Slip into a sleek booth at Bandem on Beaufort and feast on laksa spaghetti with fried barramundi, house-made dumplings and Bánh Khot (Vietnamese pancakes filled with salmon, avo and caviar).

With three locations across Perth (The Quay, Subiaco and Leederville) you won’t be disappointed with a meal at Six Senses Thai.

For cocktails and towering steak sandwiches, grab dinner at Terrarium, or if you’re craving Nonna’s pasta with a large glass of vino (heads up, you are!), then Bodega will hit the spot. Discover all of Perth’s awesome EatClub deals here
