The Daily Grind

The cakes at The Daily Grind are excellent. That coming from a salt, and mostly salt fan kind of mean something, doesn't it?

If I could equate the cakes there to songs, it'll be along the likes of Maroon 5's Sunday Morning, Feist's Mushaboom, Chemical Brothers' Let Forever Be and 方大同's 愛 愛 愛. Feel-good, delicious tunes that will certainly bring some Chill to one's weekend.

Hummingbird Cake

Red Velvet

Lemon Drizzle

I've tried a few of their creations and my favourite has got to be the Hummingbird. The ingredients (coconut, pineapple, banana, pecan, sugar and cinnamon) were well proportionated, providing the cake with an unforgettable, plethorically rich taste. The cheese coating, coupled with dried pineapple pieces just sent both the cake and I to higher ground. There's also the Red Velvet which is basically a butter cake. Sexy, sweet and rich (from the butter cream coat), what's there not to like? And on another visit, I've opted for the Lemon Drizzle. What can I say? It was 愛 愛 愛 (愛=love). Zestfully tangy with a sweet touch, this was a champion as well. And there's this Peanut Butter Banana Pie that I've yet to try. Certainly looks good.

What can be better than spending the afternoon chilling in the cool interior of The Daily Grind, watching BangsarWorld go by, with some delightful desserts in front of you. Bring a laptop along, should you need to get connected. Wi-fi's free here.

Aaaah, sweet dreams...are made of these.
