“Premium fast casual”?
Sounds like pure PR/marketing drivel, doesn’t it?
I found it in this Age/Good Food story on the new wave of fast-food restaurant and chains – with the focus very much on Lord Of The Fries and Grill’d.
Before reading it, I knew zilch about Lord Of The Fries.
Now I know more, I’m actually keen to give it a go.
I’d hesitate to call us fans of Grill’d, though we most certainly prefer its wares to the dreadful likes of McDonald’s or Hungry Jacks.
In the case of Guzman y Gomez, we happily and unapologetically count ourselves as fans.
But on a general level of taste and flavour, we reckon these kinds of places really are a whole lot better than traditional, trashy fast-food franchise food.
Regarding nutrition and healthiness, I am simply unqualified to comment.
And the story does have a rather narrow focus – no mention, for instance, of sushi rolls or places such as Sumo Salad.
What do you think?
Are Grill’d and Lord Of The Fries a boon? Do you eat at such places often, occasionally or never?
