The Grill’d Philosophy

Our mission is simple: to make burgers good.

We want our burgers to taste good and do you good. We challenge the idea of burgers being processed and low in nutritional value. That’s why we make burgers the old-fashioned way, not the mass-produced, fast-food way. Ours are proper meals, not rubbery snacks that dissolve in seconds.

We do this by using only the highest quality, freshest ingredients, many of which are sourced locally from small, family producers. Every day, before we open the doors, we turn up the music and spend several hours preparing our ingredients (cutting buns, slicing tomatoes, mashing avocados…) that have been delivered fresh from the market.

We make every burger fresh to order on the flame grill in front of you so there’s no hidden secrets. The grill gives our food its unique flavour and it’s healthier than using a hot-plate.

Going back a few years (before the burger became mass-produced & processed), the burger was a wholesome, nourishing meal. The burger was a perfect combination of basic foods – bread, meat and vegetables providing a good dose of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins & minerals. They didn’t leave you feeling heavy, bloated or guilty afterwards.

That’s what we mean by ‘healthy burgers’ today. We think a burger should contribute positively to your health and wellbeing by not only being good for you, but being made with wholesome natural ingredients sourced locally and prepared freshly for you once you place your order (and not before).

Nutrition Information

Despite the ‘healthy’ tag, we’re not health freaks (although we are prone to hitting up  the gym in the wee hours…). When it comes to nutrition, we can be best described as passionate laymen (& women).

We read widely and soak up information and advice from our nutritionist friends. We take a holistic approach to nutrition by focusing on more than just the nutrient levels in our foods.

We don’t just strive for low fat, low sugar everything at the expense of quality and flavour.  We go for real foods with real flavour and believe nutrition is more than just a set of numbers – it’s a lifestyle. That’s why we’ve developed products like our Low Carb SuperBun, made from all natural quality ingredients including almond meal, free range eggs, coconut cream, tapioca and raw honey. With less than 9g of carbs per bun (making it less than 10% carbs per burger), this bun is a perfect option for those of you who love a great burger but are keeping your carbs on the down low. It’s also Gluten Free*, Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free & Dairy Free. Did you know all our burgers are low carb when served on a Low Carb SuperBun?

Feeling good about what you’re eating contributes to our overall philosophy on nutrition – after all, a healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body! We’re not perfect, but we are committed to continuously improving our products, providing choice and helping you make informed decisions. Everyone’s got individual needs, but if you’re conscious about maintaining a healthy weight, look to the contribution a food makes towards your daily nutrient needs (or Daily Intake ‘DI’ values). If you’re a gym bunny (like a lot of our team!) or superstar athlete, then protein and/or carbohydrates are probably what you want to keep you fuelled. For weight control, kilojoule content is something you may want to consider monitoring. If you’re just looking to maintain general health, look out for kilojoules, sodium and saturated fat and how they fit into your overall eating and exercise regime!
