I crashed Miss Mousey’s date to watch Zootopia (OH EM GEE! It was AWESOME SAUCE!) and so before we watch, we must feast. Since we didn’t have enough time, we opted for something close to the cinemas, Grill’d.
We knew it would be super packed but luckily, Miss Mousey’s brother and man had bagged a table since they were there earlier (SCORE!). They had gotten the chippies platter which consists of sweet potato, zucchini and the original chippies which are served with herbed mayo, sweet chili mayo and hot chili mayo. Now, I’ve always had the original chippies and you can never go wrong with them, very crunchy and seasoned perfectly. The sweet potato chippies, it didn’t tickle my fancy and they were way too soft. My favourite – the zucchini chippies and these were AMAZEBALL! It had hint of saltiness and soft on the inside. If you want to feel a tad healthier, get these in yo bellies! Also, just a heads up, if you can’t handle your spiciness, DO NOT DIP THE HOT CHILI MAYO! This is not a “punch you in the face” hot but a “take your head and smash it against the wall” hot so handle with care.
Chips Share Plate – $13
Mr Army knife went for one of the new black burgers which is a crumbed chicken schnitzel which had activated charcoal and quinoa (oooh sounds healthy!). He got the Black with the lot which had tasty cheese and cos lettuce. He enjoyed it but found the schnitzel to be a bit dry.
Black with the Lot – $13.50
Miss Mousey went for the new nourish and flourish burger which had less calories than a sushi roll (WHAT?!). It had a beef pattie with heaps of veggies on a low carb superbun. Miss Mousey found it to be way too healthy and missing the cheesy goodness. Flavour-wise? She found it quite average as well.
Nourish & Flourish – $13.50
Miss Mousey’s baby brother got the one of the golden crumb chicken schnitzel with native pepperleaf and bush tomato. He got the pure gold which had tasty cheese, slaw and eggy mayo. He found this to be average and nothing special at all. At least he was full.
Pure Gold – $13.50
Every single time I go to Grill’d I always end up getting the Mighty Melbourne because it has beetroot, juicy beef patty, cheesy goodness, bacon, an egg and topped with relish and herbed mayo. This was absolutely DELISH! It was GINORMOUS and bursting with flavour. The beef patty was oh so juicy and this burger is my favourite at Grill’d hands down.
Mighty Melbourne – $13.50
Grill’d is a sure place for burgers and unlike american ones, there’s all sorts of veggies and stuffings you can pick from. I’ve never had a bad experience and the food is always splendid and since the burgers aren’t greasy, I don’t feel as yucky after I eat it.
