          1. re: ybnormal

            Sura $10 Lunch Special (11.30am - 2.30pm) Monday - Friday

            I've found it to be excellent value. You get your choice of Beef, Chicken, Pork or Kim Bab served with Kim Chi, Bin Dae Dduk and Jap Chae. If you get the chicken just ask for a little less sauce as they tend to smother it all over the rice and chicken, and it's too cloying.


          2. Gaucho has a $14 lunch special, 1 bbq item plus hot/cold table. For $3 more, all bbq items included, both AYCE. It's a meataganza!

            Dixons, Limericks, I believe all the pubs in that group have a lot of daily specials, including 40% off beer and drinks from 4-6pm weekdays, 17 cent wings on Mondays and 1 cent riblets Wednesdays, 4-close. They do a pretty good job on the riblest and wings. The ribs are pretty gnarly cuts though.
