Winner: Jimmy Grants

A $20 note will buy you a souva and some chips or salad at Jimmy Grants with change to spare. George Calombaris’s cheap eats restaurant chain borrows menu items from its higher end siblings – the souvas and garlicky chips with feta is started life at Gazi, and the grain salad is a version of Hellenic Republic’s famous Cypriot freekeh salad. It’s a great way to eat food by a big-time chef without breaking the bank. If you’ve ever eaten at Calombaris’s other restaurants, you’ll know that the best way to get a feed is to pick the ‘Feed Me’ option and it’s no different at Jimmy Grants. Tell them you want to ‘Eat like a Greek’, and you’ll get a full spread for two for $35. Never change, Jimmy.
