Grill’d, Shafto Lane, CBD (and other locations)January 2nd, 2013 16 comments
Oh My Grill’d! There’s a new salad dealer in town and they mean business!
Intrigued by the ‘We’ve Fixed Our Salads!’ sign I spotted on Hay Street, I just had to skip on down Shafto Lane to find out what was going on. And HELLO, there’s a new Grill’d on the block!
I’ve been to the Grill’d Mt Lawley store and although their chips are sensational, I wasn’t entirely sold on their burgers. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE that they offer three different types of veggie burgers that they’ll happily veganise for you and that they give so much back to the community by supporting local charities, but I much preferred the delicious Jus Burgers. Also, maybe it’s the location of that store or maybe it’s the feng shui, but I never really felt bliss there.
So you can imagine my delight when I skipped into the new Shafto Lane store to find a huge, warm, friendly space and smiling staff who happily veganised their latest creation for me. And what a healthy creation it is!
Introducing… the Mixed Vegetable & Dukkah Salad, $13.90 – mixed roast vegetables, black & white quinoa, cherry tomatoes, mesculin, balsamic dressing & dukkah (hold the fetta).
I couldn’t fault any of it. The ambience, the decor, the staff, the salad – all were in perfect harmony.
I vowed to give the Mt Lawley store another chance and to make the Shafto Lane store my new favourite loitering place. Feng shui salads this good don’t come along every day.

I dare you to read Bex’ blog without smiling… Miss Sparkles is a breath of fresh air who just inspires with her contagiously happy personality and her insanely delicious recipes.
Mouth watering photos, inspired recipes and a really genuinely lovely personality. Oh and I love the Star Wars/Sci Fi references dotted throughout, so fun!BeckyVeg Hot Pot
Bex is an incredible beauty, who is probably the cutest person I’ve ever met. She radiates positivity so much that she glows, or dare I say, sparkles. I am even more obsessed with Bex and her blog now.KristyKeepin It Kind

Rebecca posts awesome recipes and witty repartee, she is a brilliant photographer as well.
I love this blog for the density of information Rebecca delivers in a witty, fun way. Her blog’s title intrigued me and the content didn’t disappoint. It’s also chock full of great links that have been extremely helpful.
I love this blog not only for her awesome recipes, but also as a testament to how cool it is to commune with someone a half a world away (she’s in Australia, I’m in Colorado, USA).
I love Rebecca’s site. She looks so beautiful and her posts are so down-to-earth and fun. Vegan Sparkles is just an all-round cool site!MadisonVeggieful
Ms. Sparkles is an adorable Australian… We made the Cashew Cream of Mushroom soup and the Moroccan Sweet Potato Chickpea soup. Both were incredible! Vegan or no, you must try them!CatherineThe Catherine Blog
A cheerful vegan blog with great recipes and photos I would like to eat!
Vegan Sparkles makes me want to go Perth! She has probably won The Sunshine Award a dozen times but she’s just too adorable to leave out of this list.LindsayLindsay is Vegan
