Put your pedal to the metal – a lasagne drive-through has landed in Brisbane
Like a certain orange feline, we have an unhealthy obsession with lasagne. If we could sleep in a bed of lasagne, we would – and we would eat ourselves out of it in the morning too. If you share our unequivocal adoration for the cheesy carb creation, then we have some truly great news for you. The culinary geniuses at DALTON Catering (the new owners of CJs pasta) are dishing up kilograms upon kilograms of the saucy stuff via a super convenient lasagne drive-through. Before you hop in the car and start drifting corners Vin Diesel-style, let us divulge a few important details …
In July 2020, Jerome Dalton of DALTON Catering purchased primo pasta maker, CJ’s Pasta. Jerome planned on re-launching this month, however has now decided to push forward his plans and instead open Brisbane’s very first lasagne drive-through. Following a successful (and initially temporary) pop-up launch on Good Friday, the fast-paced concept is extending its stay for a few more weeks – yippee! For a limited time only, you’ll find DALTON Catering’s lasagne drive-through at 22 Prospect Street, Fortitude Valley on Fridays from 11:00–6:00 pm. It works like this – you call up the team to pre-order your lasagne to have it hot and ready-to-go for pick up (and to make sure you don’t miss out – it sold out the first time around). If you’re feeling lucky, you can rock up on Friday to try nab a fresh chilled lasagne – but remember it will be first come, first served.
The menu isn’t limited to one type of lasagne either. You can score a beef lasagne (1.2 kilogram or three kilogram), a sandcrab lasagne or a vegetarian lasagne. All three flavours come with a cheesy garlic focaccia that’s perfect for dipping into any extra sauce that’s left on your plate. If you’re planning on hosting a dinner party and you’re searching for some starters to enjoy before you go the whole hog and polish off the lasagne, you can also pick up a salumi box filled with mortadella, salami cotto, salami seca, pane di casa and pickles. Rest assured, everything is fresh as can be – from the pasta right down to the salumi, all of it is made in house by the Dalton team. Of course, a meal full of Italian delicacies isn’t complete without a nice red, and luckily for us, there’s also some mighty fine vino available to pre-order.
Keen to tear into a lasagne like there is no tomorrow? Give the Dalton Catering team a buzz on 0404 219 757 to place your order. You won’t regret it.
