Level 5 Westfield
Parramatta, Sydney

You've probably all seen a Grill'd at some point recently - the chain is growing that fast they seem to be popping up all over the place. So it came as a bit of a surprise to us to discover that there were only 10 Grill'd restaurants in NSW - even though there are 73 around Australia.

Grill'd certainly has a great variety of healthy burgers with good combinations of meats, salads, extras and sauces on them.

Their restaurants have a quirky upbeat feel to them - with cartoon wallpaper and a slight industrial feel to the places.

We were at Grill'd Parramatta - it had only opened a month earlier and it is in Westfield on level 5 near Events Cinemas in an expanding food area.

One of the most popular burgers here is the Almighty - and as it's a big one I was keen to give it a go! It had grilled grass fed lean beef, tasty cheese, crispy trim bacon, free range egg and a couple of slices of beetroot with salad, relish and herbed mayo. You can choose which type of roll to have - panini sourdough or traditional - and I chose the traditional roll. It certainly was a good burger. The meat was nice and juicy and tender - not overcooked - and the whole combination of cheese, egg, bacon, salads and sauces went nicely. I certainly enjoyed it! I didn't have to wait long for it either - the food arrived quickly here. 

Mlady loves pineapple on her burgers so the Summer Sunset was her choice. It was described as grilled grass fed lean beef, avocado, crispy trim bacon, golden pineapple, salad, relish and herbed mayo. She chose to have it on a sourdough panini roll and loved every bit of it. 

We couldn't resist the chips here either. It's hard to have a burger and not have chips isn't it! We had tried the chips at Grill'd before and loved them so we were keen to revisit them. Their chips are thick-cut and made with Tasmanian Russet-Burbank potatoes that are cholesterol-free. They are sprinkled with a lovely herb mix - you can taste the rosemary - and lightly salted. 

You can also get some really nice sauces to dip the chips in - and we tried them all -  herbed mayo, tomato relish and sweet chilli mayo. Each Grill'd also has great local linkages as well. Each time you buy a burger you get a token to put in one of three jars representing three local community groups. The group with the most tokens at months end gets $300 - and the others still get $100 each. It's a great initiative with the community groups changing every month.

Grill'd is popular and as a result the group is growing fast. They offer their customers a good experience - fast service, a customer focus, pleasant surroundings and of course good tasting healthy food.

Sir and Mlady dined as guests of Grill'd. Special thanks to Maria - Manager at Grill'd Parramatta for looking after us so well. Thanks also to Meghan Hendricks of the P4 Group for arranging our visit.
