Pair a juicy burg with a night of back-to-back episodes of your favourite show right now.

The group chat is blowing up with TGIF memes, the rosé is chilling in the fridge and everyone in your crew has a free Friday night for the first time in what seems like forever. You've decided to treat yourselves to a TV marathon over said rosé, plus a takeaway feast and a side of popcorn for good measure. The only question: what on earth is everyone going to eat? You want something tasty (obvs) but you also want it to be local, fresh and served hot (or cold, depending on your order) upon delivery. Lucky for you, DoorDash has every corner of Brisbane covered with fast delivery from your favourite restaurants. This means you can feast with the whole crew without missing out on the crucial plot points — like every time Ross says "we were on a break".

    cheeseburger with fried egg from 5 Boroughs

    If you’re planning to binge a TV show based in New York City (Seinfeld, Broad City and The Bold Type are some of our faves), then you should definitely order from this spot. Because 5 Boroughs celebrates everything magical about the Big Apple, specifically its super-indulgent food. Feast on the finest US culinary exports, including ribs, burgers and next-level thick shakes. The starters menu alone features some tasty choices including mac ‘n’ cheese croquettes (served with jalapeño red sauce), haloumi fries and hot wings. When it comes to the burgers, you can’t miss the Brooklyn Brisket with wood-smoked bacon or the Manhattan Royal with double cheese for American-style street food at its best.

    Sushi Nikko

    Sushi may not be the obvious viewing party meal, but there are two compelling reasons why it works. The first is that it’s not as rich and overfilling as some of the other suggestions here, so you’ll avoid falling into a food coma and missing out on half the movie. The other is that, because a lot of it is served cold, you can stretch out your consumption over a couple of hours — perfect for when you’re trying to get through an entire TV season. Just pop the leftovers in the fridge between snacking sessions, obviously. When it comes to feasting, Sushi Nikko’s fresh sushi will have you and your friends flipping a coin over the last piece. There’s something on the menu for everyone from miso soup to rice bowls and everything in between. The sashimi and sushi bento box is deservedly popular and the spicy karaage chicken is a winner for those who like things a little fiery.

    Are these Brisbane’s best wings? We think they’re a worthy contender, but we’ll let you be the judge of that. Naked Wings uses a special technique to ensure exotic flavours are evenly spread throughout each chicken wing, and it promises its ‘naked’ wings leave you feeling full but not heavy.

    Our recommendations? Of course, you can’t go past the wings. You just have three choices to make. First, decide between classic wings or boneless. Next, select ten, 15 or 20 pieces. Finally, take your pick from the 15 flavours on offer — from super spicy buffalo extra or wasabi mayo to honey butter or parmesan garlic. Other options include chicken burgers and a bunch of sides, like cheese sticks and a giant onion ring. Naked Wings also offers platters, packed with up to 40 chicken pieces, veggie sticks, fries and drinks, so you can satisfy everyone’s tastes in one easy order.

    Limon Turkish & Mediterranean Cuisine - CLOSED

    Located in Underwood, Limon Turkish and Mediterranean serves predominately Ottoman-style fare, which is a fusion of cuisines from across Central Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. That means that alongside moussaka, crispy calamari and a saffron-spiced zucchini and prawn risotto, you’ll also find islim kebap, chicken tagine and adana shish kebabs. If you have lots of hungry mouths to feed, we recommend sticking with the share-style plates, including the dips platter, with hummus, cacik (tzatziki), cemen (fenugreek) and baba ganoush, and the mixed grill with shish kebabs, lamb cutlets, rice pilaf and salad. And don’t forget to add a few servings of baklava for dessert. Now you have yourself a feast.

    If you’re a Fortitude Valley regular, you’ll know Laruche Bar is one of Brisbane’s top venues for delicious cocktails and a good ol’ fashioned boogie. But did you know you can get Laruche’s tasty pizzas delivered straight to your door? Move the coffee table out of the lounge room, put on your favourite tunes and enjoy some Laruche pizza in the comfort of your own home — it’ll be just like old times, but you won’t have to dress up or travel far to bed when you’re all danced out. Choose from options like Mexican Standoff (chicken, taco sauce, red onion and pica de gio) or the Hawaii 5-0 (ham, pineapple, red onion and chilli) for slices that really hit the spot.

    Dumpling Master

    Dumplings are one of the world’s greatest culinary creations — and you’ll certainly agree when you try Dumpling Master’s offering. This popular food truck has been rolling into locations across Brisbane since 2017 — from breweries, unis and footy games to parks and night markets. Dumpling Master serves up snack plates inspired by northern Chinese cuisine, and you can get it delivered steaming hot in the time it takes you to decide which show will make the cut for your TV marathon (or even faster for the indecisive among us). Unsurprisingly, its speciality is dumplings — there are usually six flavours to choose from including chilli chicken, prawn and vegetables. And the best part is this snack won’t break the bank. You can score ten pork dumplings for just $15 — and chilli oil dipping sauce for just 30 cents (yes, really). It also dishes up steaming barbecued pork buns and green onion pancakes.
