Revel In Top 3 Favorite Burgers at The Daily Grind

My friends and I have a great fondness for burgers (some even call us “burger fanatics”) and this guilty indulgence actually brings us closer as we are always on the go to search for the nicest burgers in town. Our stop last week was The Daily Grind which is known as the very first gourmet burger restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. The restaurant quickly won our hearts for its wide range of crafted and adventurous creations with high-quality ingredients and delectable homemade sauces. Its retro yet laid-back ambiance is also suitable for our casual meet-up. 

Patrons come to the restaurant are pampered with a plethora of delights featuring Burgers, Light Bites, Comfort Food and more. If you want to relish the best burgers at this restaurant in your next visit, check out the following 3 burgers which have always been the top choices of frequent diners here! 


1/ Foie Gras Burger

The first burger – Foie Gras Burger, easily whetted our appetite just by its glamorous appearance! The premium Australian beef patty and the skillfully pan-seared foie gras are to die for! The beef tempted our taste buds with its tenderness and juiciness while the foie gras melted on the tongue, exuding distinct flavors which were complemented by the balsamic palm sugar glaze. Portobello mushroom and onion cranberry jam were added to balance the taste, making this burger our top favorite!

Another hard-to-resist delight is this Downtown Tokyo. Inspired by Japanese cuisine, the burger is made of deep-fried soft shell crab with a touch of wasabi mayo and some rocket leaves served in charcoal buns. We were a bit doubtful at first to try this exotic patty but we then immediately fell in love with the combination. The soft-shell crab was perfectly fried to reach an incredible crunchiness whereas its taste gave a mild kick on the tongue. A wonderful experience.

While looking for a restaurant with an alfresco to chill after a hectic week, I came across Raintree – a restaurant at Menara CIMB with a mix of Thai and Western cuisine which houses a relaxing alfresco.
Impressed with its minimalist design yet vibrant ambience, I and my friend made a visit with no hesitation. Once settled down, I just couldn’t wait to try the food here and also to share with you the best dishes you must not forgo when come to the restaurant. That’s why I had a friendly staff introduced 3 dishes which are much-loved by Raintree‘s customers. 

1/ Lamb Rack

The Lamb Rack was presented in an unpretentious way with the main focus on its flavors (which I was teasing my friend that it “cuts straight to the point” as the name suggested). Perked atop perfectly-grilled seasonal vegetables and potato wedges, the high-quality lamb racks whetted our appetite with its irresistible aroma. We were both amazed by the juiciness of the lamb while the racks were grilled to à point as the meat could easily dry out if it was not handled well. A great delight for lamb aficionados!

2/ Beef Short Ribs

Our next dish, which we couldn’t stop talking about until now, was the signature Beef Short Ribs. The big chunk of beef short ribs on a sizzling hot pan totally stunned us for a moment. Our first slice into the rib was satisfied as the meat easily fell of the bone, promised a melt-in-the-mouth sensation. Of course, it didn’t let us down with the well-marinated, fork-tender meat and the splendid BBQ sauce.

3/ Rib Eye

Finally, we finished our meal with a true show stopper – Raintree’s signature Rib Eye. I have always been a big fan of rib eye and for sure I had some expectation for this signature dish. I was delighted as the rib eye was absolutely luscious. Using fine ingredients and top-quality rib eye, the chef skillfully preserved the meat’s juiciness and taste with a touch of the house-made black pepper sauce. The sauce itself was an exquisite combination that accentuated the flavors of the rib eye. The seasonal vegetables and potato wedges are worth-trying as well!
