[Food] Grab Cafe @ Damansara Jaya, PJ
Hello, lovely people! I bet you folks had a crazy and fun New Year Eve countdown. Just in case you are wondering, I spent my eve writing my blog post. LOL!!
Any burger or rib lovers out there?*waving* I would like to suggest to you a nice café located in Damansara Jaya - GRab Café. It's a family-run café, and they offer some mouth-watering gourmet burgers and ribs. The café is located at the last block of shop lot (towards the highway) behind the PETRONAS (nearby KDU Damansara Jaya).
Thanks to FoodInk, Joe and I had the chance to try out some of their dishes.
Bull Going Nuts (RM16) - Beef patty, beef bacon, cheese, caramelized onion, blueberry jelly and peanut butter, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. The patty was nice and juicy but was a little disappointed as I can't taste the peanut butter in the burger.
Tokyo Drift Chicken (RM14) - Chicken patty, grilled pineapple, cheese, caramelized onion, teriyaki sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. Same as the beef burger, the chicken was tender and juicy too with a nice touch of the sweetness from the teriyaki sauce.
Lamb Bizkit (RM16) - Lamb patty, hash brown, cheese, gherkin, minted mayo, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. This lamb burger was one of my favourite - the lamb patty was juicy and gamey. So, this could be a good choice for all of you lamb lovers out there.
Spice-Up Ribs Burger (RM23) - Beef rib, grilled pineapple, caramelized onion, Indonesian sambal, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. The rib was fork tender, but it's lacking in some beef flavours. As a lover to spicy food, I was excited when I heard they incorporated Indonesian sambal into the burger, but it was a let-down as I did not taste any spiciness in it. I wasn't too sure if it was the chef's intention to minimise the heat of the sambal.
Hashtag Vegan (RM12) - Fried Portobello mushroom, hash brown, cheese, homemade Grab sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. Not a meat lover? Vegetarian? No worry! They offer vegan burger too. Another favourite burger of mine - it was tough to say no to the rich and earthy fried Portobello mushroom.
Looking for something other than burgers? They offer some delicious non-burger dishes too!
Beef Stroganoff Rice (RM18) - Fillet Mignon quick seared for flavour cooked in heavy cream with mixture of gherkin, bell peppers, button mushroom and onion served with rice. Simple looking yet it was flavourful, and the fillet mignon was perfectly seared. Personally, I would advice to share this dish if you are a small eater - the rice and heavy cream can really be a killer!
Fricassee (RM23) - Two fried eggs, braised short ribs, sautéed potatoes, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, and tomato relish with toast. I think this is a pretty looking breakfast, especially the heart-shaped fried eggs. Cute! Though the rib was fork tender, it could use a little bit more of seasoning/rub or cheddar to add some extra flavour to it. You can choose to have either white of whole meal bread as your toast.
Aviator Salad (RM15) - Crisp mesclun salad, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, poached egg coated in corn flakes and seaweed with vinaigrette dressing. We were told that this was one of their specialties, and I was looking forward when I heard "poached egg coated in corn flakes". It's an interesting salad, and the vinaigrette wasn't overpowering. It's really important that a salad dressing is well-balanced or else you might end up with an overly acidic salad, and I think the chef has done a good job here. You can have a choice of smoked salmon or smoked chicken breast to go with your salad.
The coffee were not too bad, and I'm still quite puzzled what was the art supposed to be on my Mocha. Hmmm~~~~
If you not a coffee lover, they offer tea and sodas too (RM5 - RM9), and I was told their red tea was really good.
Do drop by and give the café a try, and I'll love to know your thoughts on them too! ^_^
