They claim to be the healthiest, but I don’t buy into any ‘the burgers are better’ sing-song; and the number of calories written by the burger may as well be foreign currency to me. That said: there’s no clouding of judgment when I say that the burgers here are damn good. The latest to spring up is in Bondi Junction; not an easy hustle, but Grill’d aim high. They’re licensed, provide al fresco dining, and even donate a buck from every meal to a local charity of your choice.
Now, the burgers are big: the Summer Sunset ($12.50) is your classic Aussie beef burger with avocado, pineapple and bacon (just missing beetroot). It’s juicy and messy - the way it should be.
Field of Dreams ($11.50) caters to the vegos with mushroom, basil pesto, roasted peppers, cheese and a mayo that makes the mouth sing.
Somewhere in the middle there’s the Baa Baa Burger ($12.90). While the name may make sensitive vegetarians wince, this lamb burger will transport you to a happy place.
Chips ($4.50/regular) are not too crispy, not too soggy; and don’t shy away from the salads either - the Chicken, Pomegranate and Goats Cheese ($13.90) has me hoping a Grill’d will materialize in my ‘hood.
