ALDI Has Your Christmas Lunch Plans Sorted This Year

And lobster tails bathed in garlic butter.

There are many things to love about the festive season: food, gifts, family and friends. Although there’s one thing we can agree on, the queues and manic rushes for fresh seafood days before Christmas is by far the least favourite part. This year, with purse strings tightening, we suspect spending hundreds of dollars on lobsters and prawns is out of the question, especially after spending on gifts for the family.

Instead, make your way to ALDI to stock up on its seafood range. This year, families can indulge in lobster canapes for just $5 for a pack of eight. Lobster tails with garlic butter glaze are also available for $30 for a pack of two. Pick up a 1kg bag of extra large Australian Tiger prawns for $25 and a six-pack of extra large scallops with maple-flavoured bacon for $13.

Shoppers will also find plenty of seafood staples, from salmon to calamari.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
