#FoodReview – Dinner @ George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant

Today is a public holiday in #Australia, and in continuation of the Christmas celebrations,we went to #Brisbane to feed our eyes and eventually had dinner.

Wifey wanted seafood and i was craving meat (steak, lamb) in fact, any grilled meat will do. No diet this week, that will resume in January.

We have eaten at George’s Paragon seafood restaurant before and our experience there was awesome , so it came naturally on our radar when we decided to have dinner.

We didn’t have a reservation, but the duty manager or staff in charge of bookings, Casandra was quite helpful as she sorted that out and gave us a vacant table quickly. She is an angel.

One quick tip for you , if you are seated in the restaurant between 5:30pm and 6:30pm, it is half rice, yes, you read that right, HALF PRICE !!!. I discovered that today too.

Starters.

We chose hot bread rolls with butter

Drink.

We all opted for mocktails since we didn’t want alcohol, this drink was the bomb. Sweet, cold, fresh and quite fruity.

There are lots of options on the menu for seafood and meat, but I settled for the ‘Souvlaki’ which is the name for their grilled lamb dish.

The meat came out tender, fresh, yummy, properly cooked and awesome. I enjoyed every bite and would have ordered for more if not that i am conscious of my weight.

In case you want to try to cook that at home, the ingredients are listed below;

Souvlaki – Lamb, oregano, garlic, onion, capsicum, lemon, olive oil, served on rice with pita bread and Greek salad.

I gave the food a score of 8 out of 10 and will recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for an excellent place to dine while in Brisbane.

We were attended to by a waitress named , Kelly (in training) and she did an excellent job making sure our food came out on time , we never ran short of cold water and was quite courteous and friendly.

Restaurant : George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant

Address: Level 1/45 Eagle St, Brisbane QLD 4000

SuperPower Salad @ Grll’d #FoodReview

SuperSalad2

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’.

Ingredients.

Grilled chicken breast

Avocado

Beetroot

Almonds

Cherry tomatoes

Cos Lettuce

Carrot

Mint

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.
