I was out yesterday to have some fun and explore Ipswich, a beautiful city 40 km outskirt of Brisbane in Queensland.
So after a good swim (playing with water), at the Robelle Domain lagoon, Springfield Central I decided it was time for lunch.
After a quick browse of the different restaurants and cafes located in the Orion Springfield central mall, we settled for ‘Grll’d’, a cafe with specialty in burgers and salads. I had a cook glance at their menu looking for something healthy to eat. Grill’d as stated on their menu, “uses 100 % grass fed beef & lamb and chicken that is 100% free from antibiotics & added hormones”, so I fell in love with the brand philosophy and ordered the ‘SuperPower Salad’.
Grilled chicken breast
Extra virgin olive oil
Quinoa (extra at $1.50)
Food came right on time after ordering, in fact I was looking at the chef through the transparent kitchen glass while he was preparing it.
I love the shape of the plate and presentation was cool.
I started to eat with an expectation for some ‘yumminess’ in my mouth.
The chicken wasn’t sweet, it was as if nothing (salt, spice) was added to it at all.
I also feel with the extra $1.50 I paid for Quinoa, there should be some good quantity in the salad but it looks it was just sprinkled on it.
Overall, for $15.00 worth of salad, my expectation was higher than what I got. An extra dash of olive oil would have made the salad juicer too.
I score the food 5/10.
The staff no doubt are good and friendly and the cafe setup was cool.
I will be back again to try a burger.
