The Daily Grind @ Bangsar Village

Your all time favourite gourmet burger joint is back! After a month long relocation and renovation,  Award Winning The Daily Grind (TDG)is back in a brand new location, with a new look, and new items on the menu!

It’s not just American cuisine anymore. Now TDG offers everything Western, from hot dogs to delicious soups, pastas and irresistible desserts. Same fresh ingredients, same great taste, with a focus on gourmet burgers.

The new layout means the restaurant is divided into 3 sections.

A more private area that you enter through the mall entrance, and a brighter space with large windows facing the street.

Terry (Red FM Drive), Hazim (Red Weekends), Yin (Red Breakfast Producer) and I sat down at a high top table in the third area where the bar is, for a more laid back feel.

TDG’s Nibbles Platter

This platter has had a makeover and now consists of beef meatballs, spicy dynamite chicken wings, stuffed jalapeno peppers and calamari rings in a light, golden batter.

All TDG’s burgers are cooked to order, so have a little patience as perfection takes time. All sauces, from ketchup to chilli to mustard and mayo are made in-house with no additives or preservatives.

TDG’s Foie Gras Burger (RM55) – ALL TIME FAVOURITE!

Extremely decadent. I mean, this burger is like king of burgers, and is what pan seared foie gras with balsamic palm sugar glaze, laid over a juicy beef patty, slices of grilled Portobello & a dollop of onion cranberry jam. 100% meat, as are all TDG’s burgers. Terry claimed this burger as soon as it arrived.

So juicy…

A good burger doesn’t have to be made from beef. You can have chicken, or fish, even softshell crab, and my favourite alternative, lamb.

My Big Fat Greek Burger (RM29)

A new addition to the menu, this burger is inspired totally by Greek cuisine. A tender, spiced lamb patty, served in warm pita bread with grilled eggplant, cucumber, tzatziki (greek yogurt with herbs) accompanied by feta cheese salad and fries.

Triple Stacked (RM35)

Got a big appetite? This is the burger for you! It’s triple stacked! Three juicy 100g patties, layered in cheddar, pickles, turkey bacon, homemade ketchup and mustard, and a side of fat, crunchy fries.

Chermoula Super Dog (RM24)

Like the Foie Gras Burger is the King of burgers, I have christened this the King of Hot Dogs. Two, count em, two giant sausages with Chermoula seasoning (Moroccan herb spice marinade), spicy jalapeno salsa, and smothered with a layer of smooth, creamy avocado. Open wide, ‘cos this baby is a force to be reckoned with!

Seafood Spaghetti (RM27)

As an alternative to burgers, TGD also has numerous pastas for you to choose from. The Seafood Spaghetti is their twist on the classic Italian Marinara. Fresh seafood simmered in a tomato based white wine and garlic broth. Fragrant, tasty, and easy to slurp up!

Peanut Butter & Roasted Banana Pie (RM16)

Oh yes, sweet and savoury! My favourite kinda dessert. Rich, thick and gooey, a lovely dessert for sharing or for throwing that diet out the window!

Salty Caramel Chocolate Cake (PREVIEW)

Another sweet savoury combo that we all adored. Salty caramel and rich chocolate go together like birds of a feather. Yin’s fork never spent more than a second away from the cake, as it made the journey from mouth to plate and back again. Highly recommended!

Luscious Lemon Drizzle Cake – (PREVIEW)

Sweet and sour, another fabulous combination! Light and fluffy sponge cake with a tart icing. They definitely named it right! Luscious…

I love The Daily Grind. Terry loves The Daily Grind. Hazim loooooooooves The Daily Grind (he confessed he eats there almost every week) and Yin absolutely loves them too, especially the desserts!

So many of us lovin’ TDG, you should get in on some of the action too!

Thanks Selena and the team at The Daily Grind for the amazing, filling meal!

All this week, tune in from Eleven2Three to win RM100 vouchers to the Daily Grind at Bangsar Village!

  3. Con’t, Ms Yin you’ve got the happy face look,eating with you can make a person shine his plate clean as a mirror.The man looking out for winds direction must be Hazim,big boy look no further the meals is in front of you.Now I know who Terry is,he’s just one big happy child.Anyway watch out he may get a little out of hands.
    Selena,the happy bunch you invited I can assure you’ll never regret,because the way they exposed the foods of your restaurant,is going to attract a peck of hungry wolfs coming to your outlet. Me for one the least,but please try not to serve me peanuts,I can never come close to peanuts,not even airborne,it’s serious,so I guess you know what it is.
    However,95% of the foods made in or to our region are peanuts free.You don’t want to get yourself in trouble in the court. See you on the weekend. happy eating guys.
    By the way,guys please have some Christmas classical music on Air by Beethoven concerto.Because the season holidays is on the air now,make the atmospheric a little more loving and thanksgiving.
    Happy holiday.
