Opening in July 2016, 88FortyEight is a cool and casual eatery situated at the Wickham Street end of the Brunswick Street Mall. Named after the height of Mount Everest, 88FortyEight offers a great mix of classic Australian dishes with a bit of a Nepalese twist. The menu boasts Nepalese-style steamed chicken dumplings, chicken wrapped in prosciutto, lamb shanks, steak, burgers, sandwiches and cakes and muffins. The drinks offering includes local and imported beers (including one Nepalese beer) wine, spirits (with one Nepalese rum), cocktails and mocktails. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights 88FortyEight is open until 2:00 am, meaning that you no longer have to settle for greasy cheeseburgers and pizza slices after a big one. 88FortyEight donating a percentage of its profits to The Uniting Hands Foundation. Each time you dine you’ll be assisting the charity, which is dedicated to helping at-risk communities in Nepal. The charity holds close to owners Hom and Swotantra’s hearts, who grew up in the same Nepalese community and share a passion for their incredible culture.
