The Daily Grind, where Quality matches Cost

Quality products are often subjective, as it subjects to a set of agreed upon criteria (which could be greatly arguable) that it should inhibit.
In business perspective, good quality products usually come at the expense of costs.
Standard testing and standard procedures incur expenses, which ultimately affecting the bottom line of a business.

Despite the lack of economical benefits (in term of costs), serving you quality burger remains the ultimate goal of this unpretentiously named gourmet burger shop, nicely tucked at the obscured corner at the lower ground of a mall.
Finding it can be a little tricky, if you are't the usual.

Donned in running red plumbs against white bricks, it reminds me of Red Riding Hood (Oh no, where is the wolves?).

And here we (Nerdy Louise and yours sincerely) were, happily enjoying ourselves in the fairy-tale land.

Being an upholder of traditions, The Daily Grind likes it the old-fashioned way.
From grinding of premium cuts of chilled meat, to moulding of patties, In House is the way to go.
It gives them the benefit of controlling the quality of the beef patty, from size and weight (180gram each), flavor (well seasoned yet unique), to texture (chunkiness of patty)
And here we are, talking about Competitive Advantage!

For the price we pay, costs of making quality gourmet burgers should never be a deterrent.
It is a win-win situation - customers get to taste the premium (value for money) and The Daily Grind deserves and earns it right.

Judging by their aspiration to serve only the best, The Daily Grind definitely lives up to it..

Smothered with cheese fondue sauce, sauteed mushrooms & topped with portobello tempura, this is Japanese Yodel Burger (RM35).

I simply could not suppress my awe at its intricacy of presentation. It is as good as an artwork!
Seconds later, dilemma stroked me. How am I going to eat this?

Each bite into the burger was oozing goodness.
Cheese fondue matched the subtlety of mushrooms and tempura, yet enhanced the flavour of the Medium beef patty.
I have got to admit I did underestimate its capability of filling my stomach.
Bloated to 110% I was, a pang of guiltiness stroked me hard on the face.

But we did not stop right there.

* Peanut Butter & Roasted Banana Pie RM16 *
Smooth like a naked virgin, my tongue could not resist from licking off every single taint (tit?) of yours.
You have got me moaned for more, and more to the last bit of you.

I just have to come back for more...

Shall we?

Every little thing about Malacca

Never had I thought that one day I will have my own DSLR.
Like a newborn baby, clueless I was at the term that portrays professionalism beyond my reach.
* Giggly little cutie at Stadthuys *
"What is DSLR?" would be my closest response.

Hiding in its innocent veil, it possesses the power of plague that left its prey naked to its attack.
* A lonesome figure in the lonely alley in Malacca *
Its venom seeped through the layer of membrane and penetrated into my running veins.
Closer it sped towards to the chamber of heart as every second ticked.

This was how I cling onto one myself eventually.
It is poisonous and contagious.
How many would be able to resist the lust of possessing the power of infinity?

Maybe words alone would not be suffice and neither does it convince any single thing I have got to say but there is one thing I am sure.
* Resilience of life painting the wall of Malacca *
With it, you hold the power to explore another world - a world that has no boundaries, but creativity and imagination.

Every single mediocracy that you claim is exactly what you have missed in your entire life.
It is not that you do not know of its existence but rather, you choose to ignore it.
*Dressed in demurely purple dress, there I found Ms Lily resting serenely in a temple nestled in Malacca *
In fact it makes traveling to the ancient historical land of Malacca much more adventurous than anyone would have imagined.

For I see what others don't see;
* Wishes that have yet to come true in the Church of St Paul *
Of the coexistence of past and present, of culture and beliefs.

While everybody else is in the midst of their bigger priorities
* Hustle of cheap sales at Stadthuys *

Here I am, climbing high to share the indulgence of a bird eye's view.
* Coloured in red, Stadthuys is not a landmark to be missed *

Many would not give a damn, but the next thing you know is you have missed out on this spectacular view of architecture, flaunting itself proudly in front of you.
Is it not one of the mistakes in your "Should-have-done-list"?

While the night falls and everybody flees to epicentre of the bustling city of Malacca
* Jam packed sardine at Jonker Street *

Here I am, wandering in the dark alleys and passageway, waiting for a glimpse of magical moments that only present to the patient men.
* Light in the dark*
And that would be the ultimate reward that all I have ever yearned for.
That glory is mine.
