Melbourne's no stranger to the boozy brunch concept, though this one does it a little differently to most. At modern Japanese restaurant Tokyo Tina, the ever-popular weekend brunch sessions come matched with a fun side of bingo, as hosted by the hilarious Valerie Hex.

This big-energy brunch setup promises to fire up your Saturday with one of two weekly sittings — 12–2pm and 2.15–4.15pm.

For $79, you'll spend two hours sipping bottomless tap beer, bubbly and Aperol spritzes, while feasting on your table's choice of five dishes from the brunch menu. Expect plates like miso-baked cauliflower, yuzu potato salad, five-spice chicken karaage, kingfish tataki with white ponzu and fennel, and the crispy avocado bao.

There's complimentary kimchi rice and edamame to match. And if you're only in for the eats and entertainment, a drinks-less option comes in at just $49.

The bingo itself promises a bit of raucous fun, especially those crowned bingo king or queen. Who knows — you could end this Saturday session with a sweet prize and serious bragging rights to your name. Either way, this is not the kind your nan plays. Just be sure to book online to nab a table.
