GRAB CAFÉ Damansara Jaya Petaling Jaya Selangor – Gourmet Burger Review


Are you one of those people that love Gourmet Burgers? If you are, then GRAB CAFÉ may be the place for you to go. Best Restaurant To Eat was invited to a new menu review at GRAB CAFÉ located at No.7, Jalan SS 22/11, Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.


GRAB CAFÉ @Damansara Jaya – which its acronym stands for Gourmet Ribs and Burgers underwent a renovation and a new menu offering recently. It is a simple vintage setup that exudes a family dining ambience.


It is a family run cafe that prides itself of making its own soft charcoal bun and in-house meat patties for its burgers.


We started the food review with the BULL GOING NUTS which has Beef patties, beef bacon, cheese, caramelized onion, blueberry jelly and peanut butter, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes in its filling. 


The in-house made beef patties were meaty with the right balance of fats. It does not have any gamey smell of the beef which makes eating it a tasty affair. The combination of the cheese and bacon was very balance and gives an overall feel and wholesome taste to the burger.

Next, we had the TOKYO DRIFT CHICKEN which has a piece of Chicken patty, grilled pineapple, cheese, caramelized onion, teriyaki sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.


The teriyaki sauce was sweet and savoury while the Chicken patty was very thick, succulent and was grilled enough to be flavourful without tasting the carbon. 


For Vegan, you can opt for the next burger which is HASHTAG VEGAN which consists of a patty of Fried Portobello mushroom, hash brown, cheese, homemade Grab sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.


It was a very creative way to present a delicious Vegan burger with the mushroom patties which was fried to a golden yellow crisp that gives each bite a mouthful feel.


This is then followed by the LAMB BIZKIT which has a Lamb patty, hash brown, cheese, gherkin, minted mayo, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.


The Lamb Patty was very juicy while the accompanying minted mayo was creamy and minty, bringing out the best from the lamb while the hash brown gives a crunch to the burger.


Next, was GRAB CAFÉ signature burger which is the SPICE-UP BURGER which has Beef rib, grilled pineapple, caramelized onion, Indonesian sambal, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes.


This burger adds a new dimension with an added spice from the Indonesian sambal. The Beef Rib meats were soft and tender while eating it was easy with minimum effort. 


If burgers are not your cup of tea for a meal, you can opt for the other dish which includes the Beef Stroganoff Rice which is Fillet Mignon that was quick seared and cooked in heavy cream with mixture of gherkin, bell peppers, button mushroom and onion served with rice.


Another non-burger option will be the Fricassee which has two fried eggs, braised short ribs, sautéed potatoes, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, tomato relish served with a toast. You can have a choice of white or whole meal bread to go with this meal.


To end our review, we had the Aviator Salad i.e. Crip mesclun salad, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, poached egg coated in corn flakes and seaweed with vinaigrette dressing. 


For fish lovers you can opt for the topping to be smoked salmon while for meat lovers you can opt for the smoked chicken breast.
