Working in the city and living within 2km of it means we have the luxury of being lazy about cooking meals every now and then. The SO and I were bitten by a lazy bug, so took a chance on Tinbilly Bar & Grill for dinner after work.
The Atlantic Salmon (AUD$15.90) is balanced on top of little trunks of kipfler potato, over a landscape of crispy bacon and tomato bruchetta, and served with lemon and dill mayonnaise.
The Tin Spice Burger (AUD$14.90) was pretty huge and definitely hit the spot with my hunger pangs. It combines a prime beef pattie with mozarella and a homestyle chilli tomato jam, and is served on a bed of chicken salt dusted chips. I haven’t had chicken salt in yonks, so this was quite a treat and I had trouble pushing the rest away after I had eaten past bursting point. The burger itself is not the least bit spicy if you’re a chilli fiend, so for those wusses out there, this one is still fair game.
The cut and quality of the food is pretty good, considering the Tinbilly Bar & Grill is located right beneath a backpacker’s. And the portions are generous.
Service is as you’d expect at some bars. You place your order at the counter, grab a buzzer and wait for its vibrations to signal your meal is ready for pickup. The method works and keeps bar staff behind the counter, where they’re usually needed.
