Melbourne pizza institutions Lucky Coq and Bimbo Deluxe are flying the coop to the Sunshine State, ready to deliver their famous $4 pizzas to the people of Brisbane at The Fox Hotel from Wednesday 9 August.
As part of a menu revamp, seventeen fresh and flavoursome new pizzas feature on The Fox Hotel’s menu. Favourites borrowed from down south include the Mediterranean-inspired Agnello, with spicy lamb mince, pine nuts, sultanas and rocket and the Poncho, a Mexican-flavoured fiesta of tomatoes, beans, jalapeños, sour cream and corn chips.
Despite their low prices, the pizzas use high quality ingredients and are made fresh daily. Every morning, locally milled Mauri flour is delivered to the kitchen and kneaded into thin crust bases. Once perfectly fired, pizzas are topped with a healthy dollop of house-made Napoli sauce, followed by Casalingo smallgoods and produce sourced from local market gardens.
Since 2002, Lucky Coq and Bimbo Deluxe have nourished Melbourne with their fresh and delicious pizzas at very wallet-friendly prices. Head Chef of Lucky Coq Ranjan Pokjarel has headed to Brisbane to impart his pizza wisdom to The Fox Hotel’s Head Chef Michael Stillman and his team.
Having been with Lucky Coq for nearly ten years, Ranjan has a wealth of kitchen experience. Michael has been working in commercial kitchens for twenty years; prior to joining The Fox in July 2016 he ran his own Brisbane café for 6 years and did stints at Cloudland and as Executive Chef of the Asar Asar group.
“We’re thrilled to bring Melbourne’s favourite cheap eats to Brisbane,” says Scott Campbell, The Fox Hotel’s general manager. “But it’s not just about eating cheap – the pizza quality is undeniable and there is a flavour to suit everyone’s taste.”
All pizzas on the Fox Hotel’s new menu will be available for $4 each between 12pm-2pm Monday to Saturday, 6-8pm Monday to Thursday and all day on Sunday; at all other times the pizzas are available for only $9.90.
The Fox Hotel’s new menu also features pub favourites like chicken parmigiana, burgers and a host of other daily specials, including $5 steaks and $5 burgers at selected times.
