There is a large courtyard and open sheltered area right at the front of the restaurant. We arrived at approximately 7pm and the place was slowly filling with other bloggers and other people enjoying a chilled night out. For the online influencers dinner they set up the front open sheltered area for us, there was the option of the communal stooled chair tables or the couch area. My friend and I (we were allowed a plus one) chose a random couch seat to the left, which had a view of the front of the restaurant. On the table we were given a set menu and throughout the night we were able to sample a majority of the food on that menu. There was burgers, meatballs, salads, dessert and drinks complimentary of Buns & Balls! :)
Now to the food.... :)
Special menu for the night
Watermelon and lime (without alcohol)
Pineapple, ginger beer and bitters (without alcohol)
I ordered the watermelon and lime- it was very bland and tasteless, however it was very refreshing and it did go very nicely with the food.
The pineapple and ginger beer- this was quite sour and strong in flavour, like the watermelon and lime drink it was very refreshing but these two drinks were not outstanding. I think if it had alcohol in it, it would of given the drink an extra kick.
Crispy tofu with chilli sauce
Beef & Pork meatballs
Char- grilled beef burger | Wagyu beef, cheese, grilled onions, tomato, lettuce, mayo & BB's burger sauce
I usually have a bad habit of comparing dishes to other dishes from other restaurants I have previously eaten at. I am the biggest fan of Chur Burgers (I have a post on this from a few months ago), so it was given I would compare these two burgers together. To be honest, Buns & Balls burgers are not as good as Chur Burgers but it does have its own unique qualities. The char- grilled beef burger was definitely very filling and hearty.
Char- grilled chicken salad
Ice cream cookie sandwich | Left: Macadamia cookie and vanilla ice cream | Right: Chocolate chip cookie and vanilla ice cream
This was a very quirky and simple dessert which I enjoyed a lot. The cookie gave a nice crunch before the creamy and soft ice cream. It did get quite sweet towards the end, so I was only able to stomach one piece :P
Icing coated doughnut with melted chocolate
Overall, Buns & Balls is a very chilled restaurant/ bar that is perfect to hang out with friends and family. You'll definitely get quality, hearty food which will fill that hungry stomach!
