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.

Meals for dinners should be light so our bodies are not over worked while we sleep since we won’t be burning the food eaten due to inactivity.

Premixed, washed and ready to eat coleslaw with beetroot

Chicken drumsticks.

Salad dressing.

Ginger (grated)

Garlic (grated).

How to make your dinner.

Wash your chicken in water at least twice with lemon or lime.

Grate your Ginger and Garlic.

Add the grated Ginger and Garlic to the washed chicken

Add your favourite herbs, spices, salt and pepper to taste. 

Pour the premixed coleslaw in a salad bowl, add your preferred salad dressing and cover till when ready to eat.

Grill your chicken with low flame in order to get the perfect chicken with an awesome taste for about 20 -30 minutes.
