The masterminds of Father's Office and Asian Beer Cafe have a great little joint up in Carlton. Sure, the main crowd are uni students but you can still have a fantastic time and with prices like these your tummy and your wallet will leave very happy.

They have a range of $12 meals that are available everyday at anytime. Think butter chicken with steamed rice, grass-fed steak and stuffed field mushroom served with shoestring fries. The must-try dish though is the beef and bush pepper meat pie served with fries and salad.

If you're here for drinks grab some small plates to share with your mates. You can choose any 3 small dishes for $20. Bar snacks, sorted. They also cater for gluten-intolerance and vegans.

Drinks-wise, swing by during Happy Hour (5:00pm-8:00pm & 9:00-10:30pm) for $10 beer and cider jugs and $8 cocktails like Pina Coladas or a Toblerone. Yum!
