The Daily Grind Gourmet: Proprietors
No stranger to the Bangsar food scene, The Daily Grind in Bangsar Village I has been around since 2008. The brand has also recently made their way to the other side of KL with a second outlet along Persiaran Ampang, on the same row as La Risata and Las Carretas. Having well passed the five year mark of surviving in Bangsar Baru, we wanted to have a chat with the good folks behind the gourmet burger joint to discover their success story. We had a quick conversation with Yeoh Way Cheng, co-founder of The Daily Grind, to find out more. “Bangsar is known as an upmarket and prestigious neighbourhood. There are plenty of trendy retail shops, restaurants, and cafes,” said Yeoh. “It’s also pretty congested with offices and residences.” Although Bangsar enjoys an extensive variety of restaurants and shops and an incredibly enviable footfall, the average turnaround time for new restaurants in the area to open and close can be as short as four months. Therefore having a restaurant in Bangsar that is still currently successful is no easy feat.
Yeoh credited this to The Daily Grind’s commitment to serving delicious burgers made the traditional way. “As the term ‘gourmet’ suggests, it is our philosophy to serve only the best of everything.” Premium cuts of imported halal meat are brought in and ground in-house in a temperature-controlled process. Then, each patty is weighed and moulded, providing complete control to the restaurant team in controlling the patty-making process. This helps them be absolutely certain of the quality and freshness of every single patty they make.
If burgers don’t make your heart beat faster though, take a look at the other items on their menu instead. “Our menu is created for comfort dining. Some are forgotten favourites and others remain a perennial staple at the dining table,” explained Yeoh. She was referring to The Daily Grind’s 1kg barbequed beef ribs, which definitely sounds like a good alternative if you ask us! On the other hand, diners looking for a lighter snack can try the restaurant’s homemade cakes, and pair them with a good cup of joe.
