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.
