Gourmet Burgers @ The Daily Grind, Bangsar Village

It was a well-planned Saturday brunch which took place because one of my girlfriends wanted to pass me a pair of shoes. If it hadn't been for the shoes, we don't know when we could actually meet up and have a meal due to our busy working schedules. It seems that life after college is all about WORK!

These 3 pretty girls are all from Ipoh! However, we only get to know each other while in college. How ironic. And the funny thing is, they come from a different high school from me and our schools are rivals but we managed to become good friends. I guess school rivalry spirit ends when you leave for tertiary education. What a silly thing to hate other people's school right? I still don't get it.

I suggested that we should go to The Daily Grind in Bangsar Village. When I first patronised this outlet a month ago, I really like this place. It will continue to be my hangout joint for sometime. I can't believe I was so out of touch with food outlets in town that until my friend suggested to dine here, I didn't know about this outlet hiding in the lower ground floor of Bangsar Village.

Although The Daily Grind is located at the Lower Ground floor, it faces the main street and that brightens up the whole place. I love the sunlight in the morning and my favourite place is at the bar area though it's a smoking area and usually there is no one there at brunch time. This place is very comfortable, nothing pretentious and you don't feel a lack of choice for food from the menu.

All Day Breakfast Burger (RM27)

I had a All Day Breakfast Burger which the name suggests is indeed something you would have for breakfast! It is made of a 100g juicy beef patty, topped with turkey bacon, fried egg, sauteed mushrooms on English muffin. On the sides, there's grilled tomato, baked beans and thick cut fries. Hmm.. this is an all day burger to me!

Avocado & Bacon Burger (RM29)

This burger has lots of avocado cream, topped with crispy turkey bacon and BBQ sauce on a juicy beef patty. My gf seemed to enjoy every morsel of it. I think avocado with burgers is an acquired taste and I don't seem to have that special tastebud.

 Classic Beef Burger (RM24)

The first time I was there, I had this Classic Beef Burger which was quite a tall order due to all the ingredients all stacked up together. They used their own mustard mix sauce and also a homemade tomato sauce topped with lots of pickles on buttered toast buns. While I really like the beef patty, I actually don't really fancy pickles. I would be more happy if they had put in lettuce instead of pickles.

Jai Ho Burger (RM28)

I guess you can tell from the name that this burger draws inspiration from the land of Bollywood. It has a juicy chargrilled chicken breast smothered with a spicy mayo sauce, topped with red pickles and served with pappadums. Quite unique don't you think so?

The coffee served here are using the Cafe Vergnano 1882 from Italy. Even Gordon Ramsay says this is a "remarkably sublime coffee". This is definitely one of the better coffees out there. Nice presentation, good aroma and smooth coffee.

Besides making their own beef and chicken patties, the ketchup and chilli sauce is also homemade. Therefore, you'll notice that the ketchup is unusual and it looks like it's pureed from fresh tomatoes! It's one of my favourite places now due to accessibility and also the food choices. You don't really have to eat the burgers because there's other dishes like pasta, soups, ribs and more. The price is reasonable and you won't feel your wallet screaming after a meal.

Yummmm!!!! Looks absolutely delightful. Looks like they're opening more and more eateries at Bangsar... Making a comeback, that place? Heard the crowd moved to Changkat Bukit Bintang...

ahhh if only the bacon is pork!

mmmmm, i think i'd be a fan of the avocado cream burger too, since it's one of my favorite ingredients! and i guess avocado goes better with beef somehow than it does with pork (i've never seen a pork burger topped with avocado anywhere before) :D
