The air is chilly and the heaters are on, which means it’s time for the trackie dacks and some indulgent comfort food.
And what better way to indulge than by treating yourself to some limited-edition menu item from some of Newcastle’s best cheat day heroes.
Below you’ll find out picks of the week, and info on where you can get your cold little hands on all the goodies.
RASCAL BOTW – THE MACK
WHAT IS IT: A nod to the iconic ’70s cinema classic will make you reach for the nearest Wah-wah pedal with a wagyu patty, cheese, hash brown, smokey bbq sauce, pickles, onions and a good dollop of Rascal Burger’s amazing mac & cheese.
HOW TO GET IT: This is some serious retro Burger Of The Week shit from Newcastle’s Favourite burger joint, Rascal. And as the name implies it’s only available for one week. To get your hands on it visit one of their stores in Newcastle or Charlestown. Store information can be found at eatrascal.com.au.
DOUGHHEAD MOVIE SNACKS
WHAT IS IT: There are three doughies in the Movie Snacks limited edition drop. The Gold Class is filled with popcorn custard (drool) and topped with caramel popcorn, pretzels and Maltesers. There’s a Low Gluten Magnum Ego with milk chocolate, salted caramel and chocolate buttercream and a vegan Peanut Butter Cup.
HOW TO GET IT: These flavour bombs are available in-store and online but only until 3 July. You can visit the Doughheads store at Shop 17, 200 Union Street in The Junction or hit ’em up online at doughheads.com.au.
OUI OUI NEWY FRIED CHICKEN SANDO
WHAT IS IT: Crispy Newy Fried Chicken tenders, rouille sauce, goat’s cheese, bacon and grated Comté served on a buttery croissant. Basically a boujee ham & cheese croissant.
HOW TO GET IT: You can pick one of these bad boys up at Newy Fried Chicken on Thursday, 30 July, but you’ll wanna get in quick because they’re only available until sold out. You can find Newy Fried Chicken at 139 Maitland Road in Islington or order online at newyfriedchicken.com.
