Bimbos Deluxe - Fitzroy

$4 pizzas!!! enough said right?! now now please no stupid "it used to be the Punters club therefore I refuse to go there because they are WANKERS WHO ARE RUINING MELBOURNE", please, get over yourselves. The Punters Club sold up and moved on, they are they ones who should be incurring your wrath not delicious delicious pizza.

I get the Napolitana minus anchovies and capers, young Dave got the fungi which he also enjoyed immensely (the "Organico" with soy cheese - the cheese is not vegan FYI). Roasted garlic, chilli, red sauce and olive, its SO DELICIOUS. Add the gorgeous roof top, a sunny day and a schooner of Bulmers and it was a perfect Monday lunch. $4 pizzas are between 12-4pm Monday to Friday and after 7-11pm Sunday to Thursday and Saturdays 7-9pm, but if you join their membership program ($5 for life) you can get $4 pizza whenever you want.

If you've got the day off and you want to have a hot tight arse day have $4 pizza for lunch then mosey over to Nova in Carlton for tight arse Monday and see a movie for $6 before 4pm ($8 after 4pm). Pizza and a movie for $10. Bargain.

  1. I've only been to Bimbos once, many years ago, and had the potato & tallegio pizza, which was divine and has become my absolute favourite pizza flavour. Thanks for reminding me it exists, I must go back one day soon!

  4. I had read that their pizza bases weren't vegan so have never been there, but I am so going if they are now vegan. Although I am one of those tragic people that can't walk past there without reminiscing about the Punters!

  5. Vicki, I've never asked about their pizza bases? what they have egg in them? I didnt ask I must admit, but surely someone asking about whether soy cheese is vegan would make them comment about bases?

    I must ask pronto! I cant have this post up if the bases are not vegan.

  7. from Bimbos

    "Hey Hey.

    You are correct in so far as our soy cheese is not vegan but our pizza bases are. Well they are if vegans eat yeast. I'm not sure if all vegans eat yeast or only level 2 vegans and higher don't eat it but there are no animal products in the bases at all, that i can assure you. Hope this helps you and if you need any more details feel free to e-mail again.

    PS: We are also looking into gluten free bases as well sometime in the near future to better help us accommodate all eating habits."

  8. I think animal based proteins hold dairy cheese together , soy cheese adds casein for this purpose i think and thus isnt vegan, Cheezly and other vegan cheeses arent actually cheese , in the states they have properly made nut milk based cheeses that are vegan and cargill are making a mass produced vegan cheese for the food industry that will be cheaper per kg than dairy cheese ... yes .. vegan cheese will be more affordable than dairy ..

  9. for those who have the "its the old punter's club" argument against Bimbo's pizzas, try the Birmingham Hotel (cnr Smith & Johnston St) - they have great music, good bar staff and $5 pizzas with very similar toppings to Bimbo's.
