A new restaurant has hit the Albany Highway strip in Vic Park. Hey Griller serves up some tasty and interesting Asian fusion food.
I headed along to a bloggers dinner at Hey Griller last month. I am always keen to try a new spot and till I received an invite from Hey Griller, I hadn’t heard of them. I don’t visit Vic Park very often and they’d completely flown under my radar. We were treated to an epic three course dinner, share plates for entrée, then my choice of main and dessert. There was so. much. food. Here’s my best dish picks from the night…
It was difficult to choose which share plates to try, many of them sounded absolutely mouth watering! We ordered tasty chicken wings, pork skewers, prawn toast, pork belly mini wraps, grilled squid and chicken karima – a crisp pastry which looked like a toasted sandwich.
For me, the pork skewers, $14, were the stand out of the entrees. The morsels of meat were so tender, nicely seasoned and came with a big cumin flavour hit!
I also loved the grilled squid, $9.50, served smothered in an Asian plum sauce. The delicate squid melted in my mouth.
For main, I was really temped by Hey Griller’s signature flaming steaks. On the menu they are described as being served medium well to well done, which I have to admit put me off ordering it. I’m a medium-rare kinda gal. Instead, I opted for the Salmon, $26. It was a perfectly cooked piece of salmon, on top of sautéed veg and cauliflower puree, finished with a sprinkling of pistachios.
Next to me, Vanessa from Perth Foodie Girls did choose a flaming wagyu tenderloin, $39. I did get rather a lot of food envy when the flaming tenderloin, arrived. Straight away I could see by the pink meat it was not cooked well done, or even medium. The waitress poured the “HG house made flaming sauce” over the sliced tenderloin and whoosh – it was a flaming steak! I loved the theatre of it.
I was getting very full, but also interested to see what Hey Grillers twist on dessert would be. I devoured the simply stunning chocolate and hazelnut fudge, $12, which was hands down the best dessert of the night! Served in a fairly unassuming cup was a layer of ooey gooey melted marshmallow, when I dug a little deeper I found a rich chocolate and hazelnut fudge and a layer of cake in the base. It was a decadent dessert and worth every calorie!
Hey Griller is a great little venue and not knowing what to expect, I was impressed with the food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Though I didn’t pay for my meal, I did take note that the prices are reasonable too. Thanks to Owner Hans and his team for a terrific meal.
