Whilst you wile away the hours at home dreaming up your first or your next tattoo, you can work up a real appetite!

The current “Stay At Home” guidelines don’t prevent us from supporting local business, so we want to give a shout out to our neighbours on the Gold Coast who are still open and trading for your take-away pleasure. Here we’ve given our overview of how you can support local Surfers Paradise Takeaway and have included links for you to check any changes to their menu, delivery and take away trading times.

Costa D’Ora is an Italian icon on the Gold Coast spanning three decades. If you have a hankering for some risotto, pasta or Gnocchi, their menu is now available for take away! Simply call to place your order and pay over the phone. $15 lunches and $20 dinners are available and will be delivered right to your car window. Buon Appetito!

If a cheeky Chic Kanye crispy southern fried burger or The Drake Vego char-grilled plant based Veef Pattie has you salivating, then Milky Lane is your burger haven (at home.) Check out their insta-feed for some mouth-watering burgers that taste even better than they look. Take away and delivery is available, but takeaway is preferred. They also use UberEats and Deliveroo.

You may not be able to travel to an exotic Thai beach right now, but you can get the taste of Thai from Bangkok Thai On Chevron. There’s excellent menu choice on offer including the traditional Pad Thai to Chef Specialties like Bangkok Thai Spicy Seafood. Every order receives a 15% discount and free delivery.

If you live on the Gold Coast, you are probably salivating right now over the true delight that is the Paddock Bakery’s. Drive-thru or pick up from the horse float!

This popular “fresh catch” eatery will be dishing up plenty of your favourites for a seafood feast at home. Chevron Island Seafoods is a Goldie tradition offering up crunchy chips, lightly salted battered/grilled fish with great serving sizes. They are offering a text and collect service. Order over the phone, leave your mobile number, wait in your car away from the shopfront until you receive a text message to say your order is ready.

Winner of the Best Vegetarian Restaurant on the Gold Coast (Crave Gold Coast), Govindas uses organically grown veggies for great tasting healthy food at affordable prices. Their koftas and pecora’s are rivalled by their equally delicious dahl and curries. You can get your vegetarian fix by ordering by phone for pick up or Uber Eat and Deliveroo.

Who says self isolation has to mean boring two minute noodles or home delivered pizza every night? Do it in style while supporting local Surfers Paradise Takeaway businesses.
