The Glenmore is an institution in Sydney, you bring anyone that visits.

The view and atmosphere on the top level has brought me back more times than I care to admit, however it took me around 4 visits to finally get a steak.

It was one of their Monday specials, $12 250g scotch fillet with chips and salad which I ordered medium rare.

It came out 10 minutes later, fast for a steak at any pub really.

To my surprise on cutting in, it was medium more than rare but still tender. It came doused in gravy (something that was not mentioned on the menu), which gave the dish a lot of flavour, making up for the lack thereof from the beef.

Decently priced for what it is, at $12 I don’t think I could ask for too much more.

I have this severe dislike towards George Coloumbaris, I can’t really pinpoint why but I just can’t like him.

That being said, I do like some of his places, Jimmy Grants being one of them.WP_20140110_0101

I went on a Friday for a quick dinner with a couple of friends, with the intention of ordering the full menu.

I didn’t quite get to get everything (my friends chickened out) but I did get a many a things including the dim sims, chips, Mr Papadouplous, the Nonna Maria, the Patris, and the lamb shoulder.

The lamb was great, tender, soft and delicious. The chips were good, the oil and fetta giving a great distinct flavour.

All the souvlakis were good, the gourmet style with chips inside worked really well, although both the chicken and the bread were a bit dry.

The dim sims were great, I’d definitely order those again, as well as that Jimmys wheel.

I went back a couple of days later and tried the Bonegilla and the grain salad. While the Bonegilla was still nothing over the top, I will say that the grain salad was phenomenal. Crunch, slight sweetness with the raisins and creamy yogurt; it was so fresh and amazing.

For a quality gourmet souvlakis, at pretty low prices I’d definitely recommend Jimmy Grants, go with the Mr Pap and the grain salad and you can’t go wrong.
