BIG Things Are Happening at The Daily Grind, Bangsar Village II & Delectables by Su, The Gardens Mid Valley

BIG is a beautiful word isn’t it? Impressive and suitably powerful too I must say. Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is perhaps the biggest liar on earth and whoever who came up with the idea that good things  only come in small packages must have been trying to make up for their own shortcomings. Seriously, who doesn’t like big things? For starters, there is always more to enjoy if you wanted to, or share (or flaunt perhaps) with your friends/family whenever you feel like *ahem* gloating. Big car, big bank account, big house, big beds, big heart, big boys, big br-… I could seriously go on and on, but I’m sure you can see by now why size matters.

You know what they say: “Once you go big, you can’t go back. ‘Cause nothing else would measure up ever again.”

Having said that, we do live in a world of jaded superlatives and it takes a whole damn lot to really wow us. So when our friend and the owner of The Daily Grind invited a few of us to test out their latest invention – a giant burger – we were just nonchalant about it until they pulled out this magnificent wonder of a burger.

Inspired after a couch potato session watching an episode of “Man Vs. Food” (what else?), they started to create the towering O.M.Goodness Giant Burger!: a 6 kilogram monster – 2kg of freshly ground juicy beef patty, 1kg of cheese, 1kg of pickles, tomatoes and lettuce patch, and finally sandwiched between 2kg of freshly baked multigrain bun to give a healthy illusion.O.M.Goodness Giant Burger, The Daily Grind_2.jpgWe picked up our jaws from the floor just in time for it to be served. This 10-inches diameter burger could easily be carved up into 10-12 slices and shared around. As my elegant BFF puts it, the true test of a good burger lies in its ability to be lifted up, held between your fingers as the juices drip down your wrist, and take a big chomp through the entire cross section. And don’t even try to talking at this point. Your jaws will be in for a good work out. And remember to lick up all the spillage too.Halfway across town, another friend has also started putting her little monsters up for sale. I said little because everything is just tiny in comparison to that humungous burger earlier. However, these giant macarons (think the size of an average palm) from Delectables by Su could easily roll over and crush the conventional-sized macarons if they ever get into a fight. See, another reason why big is awesome.

Being oversized has its advantages, it creates the most pleasurable of texture. The top part breaks delicately with a gentle bite to reveal a soft pillowy layer of ground almonds that mashes together with the generous filling.

Currently there are three flavours available: Pink Salt Chocolate, Marmalade and Caramel Latte. The last was easily my favourite among the three. I can’t say if it is the aromatic and bitter ground coffee granules at the top which helps to contrast the oozing caramel filling on the inside or if it was just the way it looked (which I found more masculine compared to the other two). The star of the other two flavours were their filling no doubt, the handsome rich Salted Chocolate ganache in pink shell while a curious kamquat jam lends an oriental twist to the yellow Marmalade version. However, I felt they were much too sweet for my liking.

Anyone who is familiar with Su’s products can continue to expect these macarons to be packed nicely – this time individually boxed in a clear plastic container over a small sheer material and tied in their signature bow. A sweet gift for your friends or yourself.

It’s time to take a big bite into the sweet life now eh? *wink*

    C&C: Of cos!

    Babysumo: It was massive. My jaw almost locked when I tried stuffing it into my mouth.

    J: thankfully the people of Daily Grind has some sense not to try those silly competition at all. That would have just spoiled the experience. Here, you eat what you can and call for back-up or a clean-up crew when you can't finish your meal. Why let a good burger go to waste right?

    Ah Pa: Work those gag reflexes. Practice makes perfect. Now, open wide. LOL

    Su: Love ya and thanks for the sweet treat!

    KM: Big buns and massive meat makes a perfect combo for you too I'm sure. :P

    TNG: it's a giant cow burger. LOL

    Corinne: Thanks my friend. I'll definitely put in more fun post soon.
