The Daily Grind @ Bangsar Village 1

Hello everyone! We have a good burger place to recommend and it is non other than THE DAILY GRIND. Since it is at the same level as their underground car park, it could be misleading to some people.  It is a fairly small restaurant located right at the corner at the lower ground (LG) level with a separated smoking area. If you are looking for variety and good burgers, this would be the perfect place for you.

These are some of the dishes that we have ordered while we were there!

 Dog's Dinner (RM12)

THIS. It is the yummiest Dog's Food we've ever tasted before. If you love Betty Midwest Kitchen's dog food, you would love this even more. It is cheesy and well seasoned. The portion was quite big considering this was shared among 7 person. The two dog bones in the picture are biscuits which were also very yummy! We definitely recommend this dish if you happen to visit them one day. 

Japanese Yodel Burger (RM35)

Love mushrooms? Love cheese fondue? This is the burger that you need! It is a combination of sautéed mushrooms,  mushroom tempura and cheese fondue sauce. AND of course a juicy and well seasoned beef patty. It comes with a side salad and some crispy hot fries. 

Triple Stack Burger (RM37)

This burger has basically everything that a burger needs. Between the burger buns, it has three 100g beef patties, cheddar cheese, beef bacon, fried egg, mushroom, sautéed onions. The beef patties are all juicy and everything tasted really well together. What's not to love about this burger? This burger also comes with a side salad and fries. 

Old Fashioned Waffles (RM18)

This is one of their signature dessert that can also be eaten as a main. It is pretty huge and inexpensive for that portion. If you like waffles, we would definitely recommend this. It is warm when served and comes along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a jar of maple syrup. They are also quite generous with the strawberries! 

On a side note, they also make their own ketchup and chilli sauce which taste pretty good! If you like it, you can even buy home a few bottles as they are also for sale. Their service were excellent as the waiters/waitress were very friendly and helpful. Plates were also changed for us before they served the waffles.

Bring someone along this weekend to The Daily Grind and check out their yummy burgers for yourself! This is our favourite place so far for burgers and waffles! We hope you have a great time and enjoy the weekend ahead. Till then, xx.

Acme Bar & Coffee Review @ Troika

     Finding for a romantic and classy place to dine in with your loved ones or friends? Acme Bar & Coffee would be the perfect place for you! Not only that the place looks beautiful but the price and portion of the food served is quite reasonable. The portion of the food at Acme was fairly big for us considering we are all pretty big eaters. Acme Bar & Coffee has 2 levels in which we were seated at the 2nd level of the restaurant. The 2nd level is smaller, quieter and has more privacy comparing to the 1st level. The menu offers quite a range of different type of food so you will have plenty of options to choose from.

We ordered 5 different types of main dishes and 1 dessert that night.

 Grilled marinated lamb shoulder (RM 43)

This plate of lamb shoulder was really really good. It was grilled with ABC kicap chilli marinade which made every bite very flavourful. The portion was humongous so if you're a small eater, it will be best to share this dish with someone. It comes with peas and shoestring fries which complements well as the side dishes. With such portion and flavour, we think that RM43 is quite reasonable!

 Mac and Cheese Hot Dog (RM25)

Mmm mmm, this mac and cheese hot dog right here is by far our favourite way of having a hot dog bun! The onion rings that comes along with it were so so good! It was crunchy and seasoned well. The bun had a good crust on the outside but soft on the inside. The mac and cheese lacks a little cheese but it still went very well with the hot dog bun together.

 Chicken Milanese Pasta (RM31)

This version of pasta has a lighter taste compared to the usual chicken/beef bolognese. To me, it was under seasoned for the pasta but if it was eaten along with the chicken, it was quite alright. Otherwise, the chicken was delicious.

Ala Moana Salmon Fillet (RM39)

This dish was a big disappointment for us as the salmon skin was burnt. The salmon fillet was not marinated well enough and under seasoned. The piece of salmon given to us was a very small piece. We would not recommend this dish unless you would not enjoy any of the other dishes available there.

Sizzling brownie and oreo ice cream (RM19)

Acme Bar & Coffee is famous for its sizzling brownie and we have heard many positive reviews about it. So we ordered it as our dessert but it turned out to be such a huge letdown. The cake was small and burnt at the bottom. There was not much to rave about as there are many other cafes out there that serve better cakes. To us, the oreo ice cream did not go quite well with the cake either.

If you happen to go to Acme Bar & Coffee, dishes that we would recommend would be their grilled lamb shoulder and mac and cheese hot dog. Let us know if you love them as well! We have yet to try their breakfast menu but we will review on it once we do.

Hail's Soft Serve @ Damansara Uptown

Hey guys!

Cafes and dessert places have been quite a trend these days so we thought we would share a great place for dessert and fellowship. We went to Hail's Soft Serve to check out what's the hype all about and oh boyyyy their soft serves were worth every single penny. It was quite empty when we got there since it was a Monday afternoon so we've managed to snap a few pictures of how it looks like inside!

The place has a very pretty design which I'm sure many girls would love. It was very clean with soft music playing in the background. It would make a very cozy place to enjoy some dessert on a hot and sunny day.

They had 3 different flavours that we could choose from; pink peppercorn, strawberry rose and black sesame. You can also have 2 different flavour in a cup/cone which is the twist version whereby you can choose a seasonal flavour mixed with Hail's signature flavour. 

Hail's soft serve menu and price

So we tried two different flavours while we were there, 

 Strawberry rose (RM 9.50 before GST)

Pink peppercorn with lemon pie combo (RM16.90 before GST)

   Even the presentation of the soft serve were so delicate and pretty which made us feel so bad for destroying it. Strawberry rose was one of their seasonal flavour where they will change every two weeks. It was our favourite flavour of the day as it tasted a lot like a frozen strawberry yogurt. Some soft serves could be too sweet for our liking but this one had just the right amount of sweetness. Very refreshing very yummy indeed. Another plus point, they used real strawberries in their strawberry rose soft serve so no artificial colouring. 

   On the other hand, their pink peppercorn was their signature flavour in which it had a very unique taste. On the first bite, a punch of pepper taste kicks in and then followed by the sweetness of a soft serve. But after the first few bites, the pepper taste didn't had that strong punch anymore and it tasted like a vanilla soft serve. We paired this flavour with a lemon pie combo which in our opinion, elevated the flavour of the pink peppercorn soft serve. The lemon curd and the vanilla crumbs complemented really well with the pink peppercorn. 

   You can also choose your own toppings in which the price varies according to what you pick. There are salted caramel popcorn, vanilla crumbs, meringues, coconut snow, sago pearls and many more topping choices that you can choose from. 

   Hail's Soft Serve is located along the shops in Uptown Damansara. You can check out their address below. We would definitely recommend this place for soft serves and we hope you will enjoy them as much as we do! Till next time, xx.
