Who is Jimmy Grant? Probably a man that moved to Melbourne in 1901 and sold Souvlaki’s in a fish and chip shop. In 2013 Australian Masterchef Judge George Calombaris’ and co opened this fancy eat in and take away souvlaki joint, Jimmy Grants. Perhaps he named it after his great uncle.
Anyway, why pay $9 at a kebab van for a felafel when you can go here and get your hit of potent garlic sauce, hummus, felafel and slaw wrapped in homemade souvlaki bread for $7? The sauce will still drip and you won’t look any better eating this drunk, but if you’re sober enough you will taste the difference. If you can get a seat inside try the $5 Greek Lager and have a side of fries crumbled with spices and feta.
Then if you feel like something sweet you can pick up a homemade Wagon Wheel here at the counter.
George, you have fulfilled the stomachs of many hungry hipster foodies after a night on the piss in Fitzroy.
