Inferno Grill is located on a buzzy strip in Maroubra with rather a lot of interesting hole-in-the-wall eateries nearby. It might be worth getting to know the ‘hood a bit better… which is only half an hour’s bus ride from my place in Surry Hills, but I’ve hardly ever been out this way. It’s obviously an institution, with boys in school uniforms stopping by in packs, and other folks from the neighbourhood stopping in for lunch (and the restaurant sending out orders on Deliveroo).
I was hanging out with the gents from Ompty (they and the restaurant shouted me for the meal) and a very pleasant Friday afternoon it was, with a sneaky beer (they’re licensed) and a rather amazing burger. The photos on the menu were taken by Sydney food bloggers! My Boss Hogg burger had bacon and crumbed mozzarela and was delicious and too big to fit into my mouth. I had to use a knife and fork.
They’ve got a good selection of everything though: burgers of chicken or vegetable, a whole range of salads, wraps and Greek Grilled Things.
And they mix up their own flavours of ice creams… and sometimes make colourful sundaes out of them.
Good, honest, casual food served up by friendly folks. Stop by if you get a chance!
Hi Andy! (I’m also Andy)
Would you mind to share the bus stand and bus number to go to this lovely restaurant? I would be staying at Big Hostel and definitely want to try out the burger. Is there any alternative way by train to get there?
Please advise 🙂
Hi Andy! That’s great. You should definitely try out the burger! From the Big Hostel there will be a few ways to get there by bus (there aren’t any convenient trains). The easiest from your hostel would be to just go to Central Station, Stand C and take the 395 Maroubra Beach. You could also go up to Museum Station on Liverpool Street and take the 396 to Maroubra Beach. If you happen to be up walking around Oxford Street, you could grab the L94 from there, La Perouse.
I’m a big fan of using Google Maps and their public transportation information (you should be able to access wireless at the hostel and plan your route). Good luck! If you go, post another message on here to tell me what you thought of the burger!
