We are a nation who relish moments that involve food and drink, and now that restaurants and cafes have been faced with one of the toughest trading periods, they have been forced to think outside the box by offering their menus as takeaway to the locals. So whether you like the thought of setting up a picnic on the beach on a sunny Winter day or perhaps you want to cosy up at home in front of your favourite Netflix show, here are our top five Gold Coast based eateries to order in from right now.
Located on Burleigh Head’s foreshore, Rick Shores is an icon to the Gold Coast and they are combatting the current situation by launching Ricks Tuk Shop Takeaway on Tedder Avenue, Main Beach for a limited time. Included on the new takeaway menu is their highly sought-after Moreton Bay bug roll and katsu beef rolls. In the mains department you will find Singapore chillicrab noodles, and for dessert, Chinese doughnuts with salted caramel and roasted rice ice cream!
We are absolutely in love with Bam Bam Bakehouse’s baked goods, so if you have been living under a rock and have no idea who they are, then let us change your World. Home of the Gold Coast’s best croissants (as rated by us, and probably Matt Preston), Bam Bam Bakehouse in Mermaid Beach have now added an unbaked almond croissant pack and cookie dough pack to their offering. All you need to do is preheat your oven and you are on your way to becoming a French pastry chef! Just remember, they do tend to sell out fast, so place those orders via their online store to avoid missing out.
When is the last time you sat down to a satisfying pub feed? We are guessing it has been a while given the current situation. Luckily for you, the Coolangatta Hotel has launched a takeaway menu so you can reunite your tastebuds with those indulgent flavours associated with pub classics! Featuring fan-favourites such as their Cooly beef burger, much-loved pub Parmi and Southern fried chicken burger you will not be disappointed with the selection. Drinks are not off the table either! Pick up a 6 pack at Cooly Liquor and browse their range of domestic and internationally sourced beers.
Have a whole family of mouths to feed? No problem, you are catered for at Mr Hizola’s. Their current takeaway menu of contemporary Cantonese includes fried wagyu & truffle dumplings, beef brisket bao buns, char-sui roast pork belly as well as a Cantonese meal box and two family pack options. Best of all you can order and pay online for a fuss-free experience.
Gelato engineers, gelato wizards, refer to them however you like, but Gelato Messina are a mainstay in the world of bespoke gelato. During the pandemic, they have created some flavour bombshells, not to mention a limited-edition range of cookie pies. Their store, located on Marine Parade is only a few doors down from the Coolangatta Hotel so if you are picking up a spread, top it off by picking up a tub of artisan gelato from Messina!
And there you have it folks, our top five eateries to order from right now in the Gold Coast. There has never been a more important time to get out there and support local businesses by purchasing their products. And remember to spread the love by sharing your beautiful foodie pics on your socials!
