Bite-sized Summary: Inferno Grill is one of those local gems that ticks all the boxes for a delicious, wholesome and uncomplicated meal that perfectly combines quality and affordability. So much more than just a local chicken shop, this is comfort food at its best!
Thick cut chips, golden roasted chicken and beer-battered fish; Inferno Grill offers all the simple, nostalgic pleasures you might expect from a beachside chicken shop. Elevating Inferno a cut above the ordinary, however, is their exceptional quality, innovation, and of course, that mouthwatering burger menu, which certainly attracts diners from across Sydney.
‘The Pig Kahuna’
With an excess of fifteen different burgers to choose from, its a hard task choosing just one. ‘The Pig Kahuna’ comes with a generous portion of Southern fried chicken, Aunt Jamima glazed bacon, herbed coleslaw, chilli mayo, grilled pineapple and American cheddar ($16). Packed with ingredients, the fried chicken is juicy with a crispy, golden coating. It’s an exceptionally balanced burger with the sweet, glazed bacon and bursts of freshness from the pineapple and coleslaw packed with fresh herbs. Finished off with a perfect amount of chilli mayo, this burger is full of flavour, and I can’t wait to come back and try some more!
Greek Tasting Plate
If burgers aren’t your thing, Inferno offers a delicious range of roasted and grilled meats, with a distinctly Mediterranean influence. I’m particularly intrigued by the Greek nachos with crispy pita bread crisps, slow roasted beef, feta, fresh salsa and homemade tzatziki ($15); cleverly innovative, fresh and something that I’ll be coming back to try without a doubt.
For those that like to try a little bit of everything, the Greek Tasting Plate is a generous and tasty option, piled high with lamb souvlaki, golden, crispy calamari, grilled halloumi cheese, fresh greek salad, salsa, pita bread and tzatziki on a bed of their famous rosemary chips ($22). The lamb souvlaki is well-seasoned, succulent and delicious rolled up in fresh pita bread with a touch of tzatziki.
Roasted chicken with Veggies
My dining partner ordered roast chicken with a few different salad/vegetable options. Vibrant and beautifully presented for a local chicken shop, the meat was incredibly tender, juicy and delicious!
Homemade Ice Cream
As if there weren’t already enough reasons to fall in love with this local gem, Inferno also offers a range of homemade ice cream. I was lucky to sample honeycomb, strawberry and tim tam, served with a ripple of flavoured sauce and crushed bits over top. Rich in flavour, creamy and smooth, the honeycomb was a real highlight for me.
Fresh, honest, affordable food that doesn’t skimp on quality or size; it’s the kind of place that makes you a little jealous of the locals. Whether you’re in the mood for burgers, a Mediterranean feast, or a Caramello Koala thickshake, this humble chicken shop does it all.
