The Daily Grind

Last weekend, we wandered around Bangsar again in hope of a 'foodventure'. We were spoilt for choice, as usual, with the endless rows of restaurants there. After about an hour, we finally came to a decision and decided to just eat here at The Daily Grind.

I've wanted to come here for a long time before, but there were alot of mixed reviews about this place. Some said it was good, others said it was not that nice. Hence, I too had alot of mixed feelings coming to this place. LOL.

The decoration at this place was certainly interesting (I mean which Western restaurant wouldn't look fancy-dancy in Bangsar), with it's dimmed lighting which created a cosy ambience.

Our orders were mostly burgers because this place was supposedly known for it.

 The Classic Beef Burger w/ Cheese.
RM 28

The Triple Stack Burger.
RM 37

The G'day Burger bitten into.
RM 35

 Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich
RM 28

Just to sum everything up quick - because I know people hate looking at words :P
The burgers, as you can already see from the pictures, were not bad. Big, juicy and everything a burger could be. There may be rooms for improvement but you'll just have to try it for yourself to know for sure. 

I ordered the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and not any of the burgers above so I can't say much about the latter.

I can however tell you that the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich definitely has a lot of space for improvement. The steak they used for the sandwich tasted abit like McD's beef patty. 
I'm sorry I always use McD as a comparison (hehe) but this time it's because it's necessary in order to express the steak's flavour accurately.

So it had a pretty common flavour which isn't something that would exactly appeal to Malaysians, I reckon. The texture of the panini bread they used for it was a bit to hard, almost like eating a baguette, even the knife had trouble cutting through it.

The fries... tasted like typical store-bought fries. Nothing special about it. 
The ketchup and chilli sauce they placed on the table on the other hand, had a distinct herbal taste to it. It tastes like one of the chinese herbal teas my mum would make for us when we were younger.
They claimed that their sauces are self-made and not from the tube, free from colouring and flavouring, so perhaps that's one reason why.

My friends said it was just plain weird but if you do go there, do share with me whether it's a good-weird or just-plain-bad-kinda-weird :P

Their menu however is impressive, with so many varieties of food you'd have a hard time picking what you want!
The price was rather pricey to us because we were only students, so if you're working perhaps this place would be affordable to you.
