Celebrate Australia Day in style this Thursday 26 January with these great offers, from free wine to special lunch and dinner deals…
Timmy Green’s Australia Day Special
New all-day Australian restaurant and bar Timmy Green at Nova Food in Victoria is celebrating Australia Day with a week-long deal. Grab a friend and feast on a sharing Chicken Parmigiana with chips and salad, plus two schooners of Freeman’s Frothie bespoke beer for just £30.
What to Expect
Timmy Green’s giant Chicken Parmigiana is made with San Daniele prosciutto (mmm), crushed St. Moritz tomatoes and burrata, coated in a crunchy panko crust. It’s served with hand-cut, twice-cooked duck fat chips and house salad. We’re sold! Inspired by founder Prue Freeman’s memories of dishes she grew up cooking and enjoying with her family, this is the perfect dish for a lunchtime treat or post-work feast.
On Australia Day, the team behind Timmy Green will be giving out free mini versions of their Lamingtons at the new restaurant in Victoria, as well as at their popular Aussie brunch hangout Daisy Green in Portman Village, and the buzzing Beany Green cafés in Broadgate Circle, Little Venice and Regent’s Place.
