I remember when Grill'd was new to the scene - it was a one of the first great alternative to the overly greasy heavy burgers from the local take-away or the highly processed "burgers" that tasted like anything but. Fast forward to 2013 and the business opens its 28th Victorian store in Fairfield and has become a favourite place for a quick bite. I was invited to check out the store recently and so Mini Me, Macaron Monster and I had lunch there a few weeks ago.
The store is quite big and comfortable, with large communal tables good for big groups and taller, bar-height tables with barstools to perch on.
The kids menu is one of the things that made me visit Grill'd initially, as they have a cute little "Mini Me" Pack ($7.5) comprising of a mini-burger made with either a beef pattie or chicken fillet, with a mini-serve of chips and a choice of juice or water. They come with entertainment in the form of pencils and coloring pages so that I can enjoy my meal in peace!
Mini Me had the Mini-Moo Snack burger ($7.5) which is a smaller version of their full sized burgers. Quite substantial and not that mini in my opinion!
I usually have the Crispy Bacon and Cheese Burger or the Summer Sunset (with pineapple!), but on the day I chose to try their salad. It's been on the menu for a while but for some reason I never noticed it!!! A lovely, lighter, lower-carb option, the Chicken, Pomegranate and Goat's Cheese Salad was delicious and a great alternative when I'm not in the mood for burgers (okay, that's fairly rare!).
I love this strip of shops in Fairfield, as they have an interesting array of shops and of course for those with little kids you've probably visited Fairyfields for a kids party or two. Grill'd is a welcome addition!
