A common problem when you're trying to be somewhat healthy is picking a place for a quick dinner — pick a spot with a limited menu and it can completely throw off all the good work you've done. But that's changed with BEN'S Supernatural in Melbourne's South Yarra: a 'healthy' (if not just healthier) fast food eatery.
BEN'S stands for Balance, Energy, Nutrition and Sustenance, in case you just thought we were yelling the name at you. With a menu developed over two years by executive chef David Selex (ex-Florentino and London's Nobu), each item has been given the tick of approval by head nutritionist Bannie Williams of The Healthy Ingredient. Burgers? Pizzas? Pancakes? Heartily encouraged and on the menu. BEN'S master baker David Flukes apparently spent 18 months perfecting the low-carb burger buns.
Each dish is also backed by macro nutritional data, and with the calculator, you can tailor your meal to focus on high protein, low sugar, or Hugh Jackman's Wolverine diet. Vegans, paleo and gluten-free diners will also be satisfied with a variety of alternatives. Customers can view the nutritional profile of not just every meal, but each individual ingredient, along with detailed information about allergens and dietary requirements.
