Much has been written about the
horrendous unbelievable waiting time at Grub. It’s all true; we tried our luck thrice and the waiting time was always more than an hour every. freaking. time. arghhh. On our fourth time there, we left our names, got the obligatory “the wait is X hour, we will call you when your table is ready”, drove to Pasar Bella for a quick stroll (I’m not lying, I swear), and made it back to Grub for dinner at 9.10pm. Yay?
Because we were ravenous by then, two things left an impression on me: 1. portions seemed sadly small and 2. the food was pretty good! The slow roasted pork belly looked like a nice juicy piece of meat any carnivore would enjoy (it even appealed to a pescetarian haha); both the grilled chicken thigh (blur photo, not gonna post it, sorry BFF) and crispy fish burgers were devoured without any complaints; and my pan-seared salmon appeared overcooked but turned out to be pinkish raw in the middle, LIKE!
