If you’re heading down to watch the game, put aside the money you’ve saved for beer and a few trips to the food stands. We’ve listed a few local restaurants for you to fill your gut before your stomach is too full of footy fever.
Robina Town Centre is walking distance from the Gold Coast’s Cbus Super Stadium and so are a plethora of its promenade restaurants. Dumpling Republic invites its patrons to experience the art of the dumpling. As a relatively recent addition to the promenade, this restaurant specialises in fresh handmade dumplings that are filled with flavour. After a few bites of these steamed masterpieces (and with a kids menu to boot) you won’t need to make any trips to the food stands during the game.
Also based in the Robina Town Centre promenade, this Gold Coast restaurant hits you with a winning combination of great staff and great food. Buzzing with trollies filled with all of your Yum Cha favourites, you can order from the menu at any time (just in case you are cutting it a little close before kick off). This is one of the Gold Coast locals favourite spots to indulge at, and with a moderate price to quality food ratio, you will not be left disappointed.
Where: Shop 1015/15. Robina Town Centre, Lido Promenade, Robina, QLD 4230
Aussies love nothing better than a good burger, and this Gold Coast restaurant has definitely mastered that category. These tasty and healthy burgers can fill up the hungriest of stomachs. There are several menu options that will make your mouth water just from reading them, and you can even customise your burger to your liking without having to pay a fortune. Complete with a playground within eyes-view of the restaurant’s outdoor table seating, you will be able to steal the kids chips as the exhaust all of their energy on the slides.
Where: Robina Town Centre, Gold Coast, QLD.
Just a quick jog from the stadium, you will find a great place to grab some decent Italian food (if you have the energy to duck out at half-time). Gold Coast locals continue to rave about this restaurant’s delicious pizzas, saying that they come back time and time again just for a slice of heaven, and after one bite you can see why. This is definitely a half-time snack that you won’t overpay for or regret.
Where: 1/110 Laver Drive, Robina, QLD.
For some of the best pub grub on the Gold Coast, you simply have to head down to the Dog and Parrot. On the other side of Robina Town Centre, the Dog and Parrot’s restaurant is ready to serve you up all of your tavern favourites. From their Graziers Stockman’s Pie through to Texas BBQ Pork Ribs, you may just decide to grab a drink and watch the game from your comfy seat right here.
Where: 2-6 Scottsdale Drive, Robina, QLD.
No matter what style of food you are after on the Gold Coast, there is something close to Cbus to keep you, your friends and your family full throughout the game. And once you’re done eating, no matter who you’re cheering for, take some time to remember the true meaning behind this unique event!
