If seafood and fries is your idea of a perfect culinary pairing, then drop by Surry Hills' Loluk Bistro on Thursdays to enjoy as many mussels and fries — or, moules frites — you can stomach for $29. The stuff-your-face food event may not be a Harry Potter or Willy Wonka-themed brunch, but hot and fresh mussels is a pretty great way to help cure the midweek blues.
The Bourke Street bistro — known for its southern French fare — is piling plates high every Thursday with steamed mussels and pommes frites, of course. Mussels come with your choice of one of three sauces: provençal, with tomatoes, garlic and black olives; marinière, with shallots and white wine; and bleu, with roquefort cheese and cream. And you can keep ordering (endlessly) until you're full. Well, until the clock hits 10pm. But four hours should be more than enough time for you to get your mollusc fix.
If you prefer your all-you-can-eat on the cheesier side, head in between 6–10pm on Tuesday or Wednesday night. The bistro is serving up unlimited raclette (and profiteroles for dessert) for $49.
