A work of art

  • Food & Booze
Here at the G&G, we love a decent burger. Stafford Heights’ newly opened eatery Grilling Art has earned our (stomachs’) respect for their finger-licking, man-sized creations. You’ll seriously walk out with a food baby, so consider wearing something loose and billowy like a Homer Simpson muumuu. Northside’s foodie scene has really stepped it up a notch with this standout casual dining setting. Co-owner Andie Wibisono and his team of ultra friendly staff are open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7.30am until late. (Oh my, that’s a tough gig!) Start your day the right way with a mascarpone frittata, an Italian style omelette with a mixture of Lyonnais potatoes, spinach, parmesan and mascarpone cheese, garnished with parsley. Magnifico! Or simply enjoy the warm summer breeze from their spacious outdoor area, as you sip on a white mocha chillo brewed from freshly ground Bellissimo beans. If you’re stopping by for lunch, be sure to delight your tastebuds with Grilling Art’s speciality homemade burgers and soft wraps. The ‘B.O.B Art’ satisfied our carnivore desires: your choice of chargrilled beef patty, chicken breast or salmon with salad, tomato relish, caramelised onion, cheddar cheese and homemade aioli. The side of crispy, beer battered chips are to die for! Oh, and you can do any burger as a wrap, too. You’ll be coming back for more after devouring a whole rack of slow cooked baby back ribs, which are flame grilled and basted with Grilling Art’s smoky barbeque sauce. Arrive on an empty stomach for this one! Takeaway and phone orders are also welcome, so you can enjoy these mighty tasty eats from the comfort of your own home. You can look forward to marvellous cocktails once their liquor license is approved, but in the meantime you can bring your own beverages. Be sure to drop in to Shop P1, 734 Rode Road. We’ve recovered from our food babies now, so we’re up for round two! Coming at you, baby back ribs…   Lauren Maynard
