Support Aussie Hospo With The Restaurant Gift Card



the restaurant card



MELBOURNE | I’ll admit that I’m not usually the kind of person who goes for gift cards. I’m more of a “cash is best” kinda guy. However, when I was told about the new Restaurant Gift Card, my interest was piqued.

The card, launched by TCN this year, can be redeemed at any restaurant that accepts eftpos Australia-wide – at absolutely no cost to the business. If the person you’re buying a gift card for might prefer a bit of a tipple instead of a meal, there’s also the Pub & Bar Gift Card – same deal, but redeemable at pubs and bars.

Anything that helps hospo get back on its feet, especially after what the industry has been through, and is still going through, in 2020, is okay in my books. And it’s easy to see how The Restaurant Gift Card is a good thing for all of the hospo operators out there.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
