[ BEGIN EDIT ]
Another one bites the dust.
Apparently Relish is closed, torn down and replaced by an outlet of The Social.
(Which would explain why I couldn't see it anywhere on the road the last time I went to that area)
If you're looking for gourmet burgers I guess there's always the Daily Grind at Bangsar Village (which is still open, the last I checked)
Anyway, just thought that you should know.
[ END EDIT ]
Relish is a new healthy burger joint/ bar that has opened up in the Tengkat Tong Shin area.... It's located almost directly opposite Frangipani and has a airy, modern ambience to it:
There is even a nice private section upstairs but it's mostly for functions or if you're only having drinks:
I was so greedy!
We were there at Relish at 10.30pm (AND I had already had a light dinner) but I still ordered a burger anyway....
(Hmmm, this is sorta like the upmarket yuppies' version of having a Ramli burger at the mamak for supper, I guess....)
(It's ok once in a while, but anything more than once in a blue moon will be very bad for my figure AND my wallet!)
Generally, there there is only a small range of starters, desserts and a few pasta and salad dishes on the menu... Still, since the main specialty here are the burgers, you will be spoilt for choice!
There are about 20 kinds of burgers for you to choose from (beef, chicken, lamb or even vegetarian).... You have a choice of 2 sizes (priced differently of course) - either a 6oz (medium) or a 10oz (large).
Anyway, here what I ordered, the BBQ Beef Burger - 6oz (RM22++) and a side order of Fries (RM5++):
Overall, the burger was pretty good.
The tomato relish was interesting and the cheese covered meat patty was tender and tasty. It wasn't really bursting with flavour but it did taste TONNES healthier than the normal burger you'd get from Burger King or McD's.
(Hmmm, there weren't quite as many mushrooms as I would have liked though)
The fries on the other hand were only OK - Nothing extraordinary...
If you want more stuff on your burger, go ahead and order the Aussie styled one (RM24++):
Like the other burger, the meat patty was tender and tasted wholesome and healthy... The only difference is that this one has more stuff on it so if you like egg, bacon and beet root on your burger then this would be a good choice.
For dessert, there is an assortment of cakes and pies as well a few simple things like Banana Split. That night, Jo-Lyn ordered the Apple pie a la mode (RM15++):
When she mentioned that the Apple Pie is very heavily spiced (cinnamon mostly), I didn't try to steal a bite (seeing as I don't like cinnamon).... Overall, she said that it's yummy.
So, it's: Comfortable modern ambience, healthy (but pricier) alternative to the usual burger BUT well, nothing much except that parking can be a pain in the area...
