12 Wyndham Street
One of our favourite purveyors of delicious and healthy lunches in the city, Misters, are offering a 2 course lunch featuring the finger-licking good grass fed beef burger and shoe string fries served with truffle mayo. As part of this $25 offer, you can also enjoy a soft drink of your choice.
60 Federal Street
We just can't enough of 1947 Eatery's modern Indian fare packed with bold flavours. Their August menu offer is an unforgettable 3 course menu for $40 that is sure to become a highlight of this year's American Express Restaurant Month. Begin your feast with Bhel Puri, a popular Indian snack of puffed rice tossed with onions, tomato, potato and chutney. Then choose between the lamb chops and Dahi kebab for your entree. For your main, there are three delicious options and you can't go wrong with any of them. We'd recommend opting for the traditional Lambada with smoked quail cooked in a khatta (zesty) gravy and strong aromatic spices.
