One of Australian most prominent burger brand, Grill’d, is proud to welcome their first international restaurant in Bali. Set on the vibrant Seminyak Square, Grill’d Bali is planned to open soon on late December 2019.
Bali was the logical first international location for the brand for a handful of reasons; its proximity to Australia, the burgeoning population of expats, and rising numbers of Australian tourists who visit the holiday island all year round. On top, there’s also the availability of high-quality, fresh produce.
Seated on the former site of Grocer & Grind Cafe, ‘casual but refined’ is the mantra for Grill’d Bali; which has been designed as a sanctuary for customers wanting to enjoy a meal in air-conditioned surrounds while watching Seminyak’s crowds pass by. The existing building’s impressive structure and high roofline have remained, while the interiors have been transformed courtesy of an impressive open kitchen, where customers can see the burgers being made. The space now also houses custom-designed bar, bespoke lighting and furniture, with seating for 150 inside and out.
“Bali is the perfect destination to expand the Grill’d brand internationally,” explains Simon Crowe, the Managing Director and Founder of the Grill’d Group. “It has a great service culture, a strong, well-trained hospitality workforce, and hard-working farmers who are growing some seriously good produce.”
While the menu will be familiar to loyal Grill’d fans, there will be some new additions exclusive to the Bali restaurant. Grill’d Chef & Menu Innovation Manager Josh Powell has tailored the menu to suit the island’s relaxed lifestyle and holiday makers who want to take their time grazing on a selection of dishes over a cocktail or three. It will feature all classic Grill’d homemade burgers including the new Beyond Meat range, famous chips and healthy salads, as well as an exclusive selection of shared sides such as crispy onion rings, crunchy corn fritters, cheesy chips, tasty chicken bites and charred broccoli with homemade yogurt sauce.
To accompany the scrumptious menus, an extensive list of signature cocktail will also be served at Grill’d Bali. Designed by Bali’s best bartender, Gogon (ex-Bikini), the cocktail classics include the rendition of old favorites such as Relish the Day (Bloody Mary), Monkey Colada (Pina Colada), Whisky Whistle (Whisky Sour), to Vesper Vibes (Espresso Martini) while the ‘Fancy Pants’ menu features original creations like Butterfly Kisses (Butterfly pea gin, soda and turmeric cordial), Pink Knight (vodka, dragonfruit, cranberry, galangal syrup and twist of lime and She’ll Be Apples (vodka, fresh apple juice, rosemary and spice).
