Deal vouchers are tricky. I’ve had both good and bad experiences (with food and other products/services), so I’ve learned to be cautious when using them. Luckily, the rules at Dimmi are very clear: earn points by booking through their website and writing a short “review” of your experience, and redeem discount vouchers in one of the participating restaurants. Vouchers will give you 50% off your bill (drinks not included) and the only catch is that you have to use them between Sunday and Thursday.
The restaurant I chose to redeem this particular voucher was Mumu Grill, where I had a great meal as part of the food photography class I attended last year. Not only that, but Mumu is the only restaurant in Sydney I know of where I can be sure all beef is grass-fed.
My initial thought was to order the 1 kg T-bone to share with Al but we had been in a speed boat and were still dizzy, so we chose two regular-sized mains: a steak (of course!) and a pork roast.
The sirloin steak was good and cooked medium-rare as requested. It was a bit tougher than expected (although I know grass-fed beef is less fatty than grain-fed, I’m used to the fattier cuts) but tasty for sure. The green beans tossed in butter and the potato chips that came with it were the perfect match.
The Bangalow pork shoulder, slow roasted for 15 hours and served with celeriac and apple remoulade sounded amazing but didn’t reach our expectations. I felt the flavour of the pork a bit too strong, and in general we were unimpressed.

Mumu Grill is far away from where we live and our meal wasn’t precisely stellar but I’d be happy to go back and support their commitment with sustainability.
