Ben's Independent Grocer, DC Mall: What to Eat Here

Last week, we visited Ben's Independent Grocer in DC Mall and ended up having both lunch and dinner here. Within the supermarket, there are several food outlets such as The Grocer's Kitchen, Shucked (oyster bar), Crumbs (bakery), Independent Coffee, Taps Beer Bar, Tsukijiya and I Love Pho Express.

The Grocer's Kitchen offers pizza, salads, steaks, pasta and more. A new addition to the Grocer's Kitchen is La Taqueria, which serves authentic Mexican food such as tacos, burritos, rice bowl and salad bowl. For the filling, you can choose from beef, chicken, fish and vege. Place your order at the counter and you will be given a number, the food will be served to you when it's ready.

Hubby had the fish tacos (RM23) and each serving came with two tacos, loaded with deep fried fish goujons, fresh tomato salsa and guacamole on the side.  Hubby enjoyed it thoroughly.

Meanwhile, I had the sliced rare beef pho (RM19.90) from I Love Pho, which originates from Melbourne. Place your order and you will be given one of those UFO buzzers, which will vibrate when your order is ready for collection.  The broth was light and flavorful, however I found the beef to be overcooked. Nevertheless, still enjoyable though there is definitely room for improvement here.

We returned here for dinner after our spa session at Sofitel. Tsukijiya is owned by Sushi Train which owns Ichiro, Sushi Shoya, Hanaya etc which all serve fantastic Japanese food, so I definitely had high hopes. Other than pre-made sushi, they also serve hot food such as chicken katsu with curry and ramen.

Initially we planned to try the Bara Chirashi, but ended up with Salmon Set (RM36.80) which comes with three thick slices of salmon sashimi, salmon belly, ikura and salmon sushi. The sushi here is made using Japanese rice and made in-house daily, so even though it's pre-made and sold in a packet, I found it just as good as the ones we usually have at Sushi Shoya. Delicious!
