Missing the Ekka, Brisbanites? That's the feeling this week, especially since our beloved midweek public holiday has been moved to a yet-to-be-announced later date. We haven't all scored a day off, but we can still convince our tastebuds that it's business as usual — thanks to strawberry sundae deliveries, a drive-thru slinging dagwood dogs and Bertie Beetle showbags, and Emporium Hotel South Bank's new Ekka-inspired menu.

If the latter particularly tempts your tastebuds, be prepared for dishes that level up the usual Ekka experience. All of the hotel's eateries and bars are in on the special, which runs until Sunday, August 15. So, if you wanted to make your way through the building and try everything, that's a possibility.

At Signature Restaurant, you can tuck into smoked hay parfait, which riffs on those popular strawberry sundaes via smoked hay ice cream, a waffle and strawberry gum. At Belle Epoque, it's time to celebrate French patisserie-style — so with the lolly-inspired Candyman Cake that features coconut rough dacquoise, freckles crunch, musk marshmallow and strawberry sundae mousse.

Or, up at The Terrace, soak in the 21-storeys-up view while sipping a strawberry and raspberry granita cocktail, which features clarified strawberry milk and white chocolate among its ingredients. The Piano Bar is getting boozy too, this time with a nod to the hay bale race via a cocktail called the Hay Bae.
