I was leafing through the free 9 to 5 magazine early this week when I was in Wynyard Station on the way back to office and I spotted a big heading somewhere on the page “TWO FOR ONE”. I must admit I am a very sensitive person in terms of discounted food vouchers. So, I quickly emailed a few people on my eat out list and we went to the newly open Grill’d Darling Harbour for a Friday loooong lunch.




Some story to this little burger restaurant – Simon Crowe the creator of Grill’d is a big fan of burgers, every now and then he would go out and try burgers in different restaurants but he always came back with disappointment and felt bloated and oily afterwards. After all the complains his friend dared him to “Put-up or Shut-up”. It was then the concept for healthy but tasty burgers was born. It took Simon 10 years, five business ideas and time overseas before bringing his baby to fruition.


 Steak Sandwich Front Bar – Grilled scotch fillet, free range egg, rocket, tomato, Spanish onion, mustard, beetroot relish, herbed mayo on ciabatta, $14.90


I already did my home work before I came here and was determined to order the steak sandwich due to the fact I love scotch fillet. Firstly, size was huge!! It was a little bit bigger than the size of a subway 6 inch. Under the Ciabatta was packed with beetroots relish, rocket, whole piece of steak which was about the size of a palm and heaps of herbed mayo. Steak was cooked to perfection and juicy. I literally finished the whole sandwich and didn’t have any room for dinner.


Almighty Beef Burger – Grilled 100% lean beef, tasty cheese, crispy trim bacon, free range egg, a couple of slices of beetroot with salad, relish and herbed mayo, $12.50


This burger is quite good, the beef patty isn’t oily, the ingredients are fresh, the bun is toasted with 2 different sauces, herb mayo on the top bun, the bottom bun has a tomato relish. After eating the burger you will feel very full without the oil turning in your stomach like most burgers do, hence a sign of the good ingredients.


The Zen Hen Chicken Burger – Grilled chicken breast, tangy satay sauce, coriander, shredded carrot, salad & herbed mayo, $10.90


If you are not a fan of beef, there are other meats to choose from in the menu, such as chicken, lamb or veggie burgers. The chicken breast in the Zen Hen Burger was moist and tender. After tasting this you will never eat another takeaway burger again!


Regular Hot Chips with Herbed Mayo, $4.30/$0.70

I love their chips because it was as fat as my fat fingers, the outside was nice and crunchy and inside were moist and hot. You have the option to select the sauce to dip in your chips: Herbed Mayo, Tomato Relish or Sweet Chilli Mayo. I strongly recommend the Tomato Relish because I notice most of the burgers have herbed mayo in them already, so it is good to try something different.
