We’re bringing in your post Gladys afternoon with another good ol’ edition of Monday Munchies. The weekly round-up of everything that you need to know in food news. This week we’re showing our cards with another list of great lockdown joints that you need to get your hands, mouth and eyes on. Starting off with the folks over at Dear Saint Eloise who are taking care of the fellas this week, with a date-night two pack to die for. Did someone say braised beef and mash? Regardless, if you need any more food assistance this lockdown, please refer to our article on the 6 Best Food Delivery Apps & Services.
Dear Saint Eloise Date Night Packs
Sydney favourite Dear Saint Eloise is doing date-night right, offering the perfect two-person spread for an intimate lockdown affair. The menu is updated weekly so we recommend keeping an eye locked to their Instagram for the latest (linked below), but look out for options such as last weeks menu of braised beef short rib, Paris mash and eggplant dip. With Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options on the menu, we can’t think of a better way to get rid of those middle of the week woes. With only 50 available and a sharp price of $65, you’re going to have to be quick to secure yours! Eat, heat, serve.
