Good GRUB for everyone
GRUB is the go-to place for what else but good grub? Located in Bishan-Ang Mo Kio park, the restaurant is surrounded by lush greenery and is my idea of a relaxed Sunday afternoon.
One of the main attractions of GRUB would be their burgers. They offer an array of unconventional selections not commonly found in other places such as the Har Cheong Gai (prawn paste) burger and the Crispy Fish Burger. I tried the GRUB Double Cheeseburger and this was hands-down the best cheeseburger I’ve eaten in all my 18 years. The beef patty was succulent and juicy, the bun soft and fluffy, and the lettuce fresher than fresh. My pet peeve with cheeseburgers is that normally by the time they are served to me, the lettuce is limp and soggy from being exposed to the heat of the cooked patty, however I did not face this problem at GRUB. On the other hand, I did not enjoy the Har Cheong Gai burger as much, as I found it a tad too salty and in all honesty would choose a McSpicy over it anyday.
All in all, GRUB is great for a catch up with friends over a meal or just to chill. With a nice ambience and good food, what’s there not to like about it?
Refreshing good food
Heard so many raves about Grub that I had to make my way there to try it for myself. Went there once on a Saturday afternoon and the queue was soooooo long, the estimated waiting time was 1.5 hours. We decided to wait since we went all the way there. As it is nestled in Bishan Park, we decided to sit along the park benches to "chill" while waiting. But luck wasn't on our side. It started to rain and within minutes, it was pouring. We decided to abandon our plans as we didn't want to end up all wet and pathetic looking especially so when there were strong winds so a sheltered pavilion wouldn't keep us dry.
Went back again 1 month later and we decided to go early in the morning so as to avoid the lunch/brunch crowd. We ordered a serving of Mentaiko fries. We have heard of truffle fries, garlic fries, duck fat fries but mentaiko fries is indeed different from all the other artisan fries out there. IT WAS SO GOOD OMG. Only complain is that the sauce was too little! We licked the saucer clean and decided to order an extra serving of sauce to go with the fries from our burger ($2). Best $2 spent that day. I really liked the idea of injecting some Japanese flavour into western food. I mean, we all know what geniuses the Japs are.
We also ordered a double cheeseburger which was yummy! The beef patties were thick and juicy and super filling too! Lastly, we had the churros. It came with dark chocolate sauce and tangy creme anglaise. Though it is not the best that we have tried (best we tried was in London. $5 for 1m long churros stuffed with caramel/chocolate) but decent enough. In fact, I think churros in Singapore are too pricey and can never match up to those we tried in London or Korea.
Overall, Grub is a beautiful place to dine, away from the bustling city. I would definitely head back there to have the mentaiko fries again!
Going to Grub always works up a good appetite for me, because I walk through Bishan Park to instead of taking a car when heading there. Grub believes in serving fresh and healthy food, meaning there are no preservatives of any kind and it is all natural. The location is also ideal because it is so scenic and peaceful.
While they have revamped their menu and scrapped some things that I previously enjoyed, like the risotto, I am still a huge fan of their mentaiko fries and their churros.
I love anything mentaiko and the sauce goes so well with the fries, thumbs up to Grub for having this delicious combination in their menu. Their churros remain one of the best I've had. Crispy golden brown and dusted with a generous helping of sugar, there are also different toppings for you to dip your churros into - dark chocolate, and tangy creme anglaise. I like that despite the satisfying sound it makes when you bite into it, the centre is still soft.
Seriously Good Grub
I love it when food is more than stuff that just fills your stomach. It's especially FULL-FILLING when a lot of thought and responsibility goes into making the food on my plate. And this is exactly what Grub is all about.
Nestled in a quiet part of Bishan Park, this stand-alone food outlet may be hard to spot if it's your first time there, but if a gastronomical experience is what you are going for, then it's worth searching for it. Weekend waits may take long too, so be sure to get there early.
The grilled pork steak and burgers are mouth watering and you should also try their made-from-scratch churros. It's crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I particularly like the custard dip that comes with the churros. Overall, the prices are decent but I could do with a larger portion.
Worth the grub!
I've seen way too many pictures on Instagram of the burger that has a portion of fish so huge, the bread barely sandwiched half of the patty.
I visited Grub on a weekday afternoon at 2pm, not knowing that their last order was at 3pm, and with their restaurant maintenance occurring half an hour after that. Nonetheless my friend and I managed to wolf down 5 items off the menu, and we were both satisfied with the food.
The hits were the Crispy Fish Burger ($14.90), Yuzu mint soda ($4.90) and the Ice cream waffle ($8). I personally did not find the much raved about Churros ($9) special, in fact the batter mix was a tad too blend for my liking and the sugar coating was way overwhelming, making a huge mess on the table. The accompanying dark chocolate sauce tasted particularly diluted as well, and we barely finished 5 out of the 8 sticks served. The ice chocolate drink ($5.90) was a huge disappointment- it tasted like iced milo with more milk.
Service wise, the staffs were very friendly and accommodating. The food was also served promptly, all piping hot and well plated. If you are sick of the mainstream dessert choices, I would definitely recommend trying their dessert of the week, which is a special creation valid only for that particular week.
Oh how could I have forgotten about the fries- they were heavenly! I personally prefer thicker shoestring cuts with more salt, and Grub has perfected it!
