Modern Australian with ripples of international influence,  THE JET BURGER is one of the namesake signatures, a pillar in its truth to classics which echoes throughout the menu.  100% Aussie Beef, American Cheddar, Tomato, Caramelized Onion, Cucumber Pickles, Lettuce, American Mustard and Tomato Sauce, Served on a Freshly Toasted Bun w Beer Battered Fries.  Little to criticise here as the venue is born from decades of expertise on what’s in and what’s now.  They’ve mastered their own lean meat to fat ratio and balance of seasoning through patty mix, cooking technique demonstrated in the sealing of juices that burst into the sauce and layers on each bite.

Clean eating is still all the rage with no signs of slowing down anytime soon and health bowls are a category to choose from on the menu for vegetarians, pescatarians and meat lovers.  The JET BOWL is an eye popping kaleidescope of grilled garlic, lemon chicken, sweet botato, asparagus, kale, walnut topped avocado resting on a bed of rice and bound with lemon mustard dressing.  The chosen combination of elements allows for the wholefoods to stand on their own as you make your way in sections or decide to mix it all together to let the zing of mustard come through.

On the Land & Sea items is the 200g grass fed scotch fillet served with chips, salad and mushroom sauce which comes to the table perfectly executed to the medium request as the texture and juicyness are studied and demonstrating an even cook.

It’s outdoor sitting area is in a shared space in alongside the path to the main entrance of the shopping village, pharmacy and bottle shop making it a prime spot for locals to mingle with one another.  The hanging pot plants turn the ceiling into a feature of the main indoor dining area and its contemporary ambience and fully licensed bar.  A local destination in itself it also enhances the shopping village experience.
