The Weekend Edition - Sleep In. Slow Down. Enjoy.

Fast five – our takeaway picks for the weekend ahead

Fast five – our takeaway picks for the weekend ahead

We're almost two-and-a-half months into the pandemic lockdown and the days of going out to eat seem like a fond, but distant, memory. Although restrictions are relaxing and allowing small groups to dine in, takeaway is still the safest and most convenient option for those looking to support cafes, bars and restaurants. While we are doing our best to keep you informed of all of the spots that are making the transition to click-and-collect, we figured we'd put together a quick hit-list of venues to help make your decision-making process easier. Here are our splurge-worthy suggestions ...


Sichuan Papa, Everton Park: We get it, this isolation lifestyle can get pretty boring unless you take steps to keep it lively. When we get sick of looking in our fridge and pantry for culinary inspiration, we ask ourselves, “What would the Spice Girls do?”. The answer is simple – spice up our life! When we crave spice, we think of Sichuan cuisine, and when we think of Sichuan cuisine we think of Sichuan Papa at Everton Plaza. This eatery specialises in neo-Chinese fare, spicy and aromatic and just the ticket for tantalising tastebuds while in iso. Sichuan Papa is offering takeaway via Bopple, serving up its whole menu including spicy wontons, black-pepper beef, the signature crispy chilli chicken, double-cooked pork belly, mapo tofu and duck fried rice. Also of note – you can add beer from Young Henry’s and wine to your order!

Ramen Danbo, South Brisbane and Sunnybank: There was a noticeable drop (or plummet, rather) in temperatures over the weekend, which sent us scurrying inside for warmth. When the colder temperatures hit as they are doing right now, our craving for steaming bowls of noodle-laden soup skyrockets. There’s nothing like slurping up every drop of rich tonkotsu ramen broth, and Ramen Danbo makes some of the best in Brisbane. Although Ramen Danbo has reopened for dine-in, its takeaway and delivery services are still running, so if you can’t grab a seat you’ve still got options. Ramen Danbo’s signature tonkotsu pork ramen, se-abura ramen, shoyu ramen and vegan options are available via takeaway, online ordering and delivery via Uber Eats.

Scout, Petrie Terrace: The cool cats at Scout have been keeping the caffeine by Coffee Supreme and brunch bites coming throughout the lockdown period, with its takeaway menu loaded with plenty of mouth-watering morsels to sip and munch on the run. The crew is keeping things simple and succinct, with small items such as crumpets with toppings, hazelnut-and-espresso granola with blueberries, apple and yoghurt, and avocado on sourdough satiating the snack seekers, while the cafe’s signature bagels are perfect for sinking your chompers into. Select from smoked salmon, mushroom, brekkie or vegan bagels, or check in to see what specials are available. You might be lucky enough to nab something like Scout’s mortadella, provolone, green olive and rocket bagel! If you’re short on cooking time, you can also nab a take-home lasagne with salad and dressing to sort the week’s meal prep in a second.

Grass Fed Plant Based, South Brisbane: Nestled in the heart of Fish Lane, Grass Fed has been pumping out plant-based burgers and sides non-stop since the start of lockdown. The hole-in-the-wall joint was almost built for takeaway orders, so if a craving for burgers or perhaps vegan and gluten-free soft-serve ice-cream hits, then you should give the crew a call on 07 3180 2242 to place an order to go. The menu is loaded with options, including the signature Grass Fed Gains (with vEEF patty), Chook Chook (boasting a herbed chicken-style patty), the Porkasaurus (with spiced barbecue ‘pork’), potato gems loaded with vegan protein and sauces, onion rings, curly fries and desserts. You can also get Grass Fed delivered via Uber Eats if you’re more inclined to stay home.

A post shared by KCS CHICKEN (@kcschicken) on

KCS Chicken, Woolloongabba: When the lockdowns came into full effect in March, venues across town shook up their offerings to suit the new conditions of service. For Sara Jeon and Jamie Yang of Kimchi Cheese Smile, they decided to trial a new concept focused on Korean-style fried chicken. The KCS Chicken menu, while simple, is packed with flavour. You’ve got servings of boneless fried chicken lathered in Korean sweet chilli or soy sauce or served plain with complimentary house-made kimchi or, alternatively, you can chomp on a KCS chicken sandwich, boasting broiche buns stuffed with crispy chicken, chilli mayo and cucumber pickles. As for sides, you can add Dutch-cream potato mash, fresh green salads, beer-battered chips and steamed rice. KCS Chicken is also selling booze too – craft beer, ginger beer, cider and wine! Order for pick-up or delivery here.
