Trunk Diner

I have walked past this place so many times, but yet I never actually stopped to even notice that it is actually a restaurant cafe.

It wasn't until Eddie showed me an article on Trunk Diner's wagyu burger that I actually learnt about this place. So when I arrived, I thought to myself, "Ooooh, so this is Trunk Diner."

I like how casual the diner looks. Reminds me of the restaurant cafe in Malaysia that serves really good wanton noodles. But I reckon it's a nice place to chill out with friends. :)

Which was exactly what I did, with my two guy friends of whom I haven't gone out with in quite a while. But unfortunately for me, all they did was yak yak yak about poker. (T_T)"

We all ordered the wagyu burger (because that was the purpose of going there anyways) - 175 grams of fresh ground wagyu beef in a grilled brioche with baby cos lettuce, tomatoes and house made pickles.

The burger came de-constructed, so you may add in the sides as you wish, which I was very pleased with because I usually have to remove whatever I don't like (ie. onions especially, but usually everything except tomatoes). So it just makes it easier for me. :P

And yeah, it is pretty affordable at $10 for a wagyu burger, but I also added gruyere cheese (which costed me an extra $1.50) because what's a burger without cheese, isn't it?

I kinda enjoyed it, but if I were to compare Trunk with Plan B, it is no where even close. Same price, different quality. In fact, Plan B is even cheaper. Cox it is $10 with cheese included! :P

Gosh wagyu is everywhere, I noticed even at subway (where I confess I do loiter though haven't tried their new wagyu subs).

The burger looks good, I'm like you, the onion the first to go!

YAH! I'm so excited to know that subway does wagyu sandwich now too. I'm gonna try it soon!

Hehe although I use onion in my cooking I HAVE TO REMOVE IT hahaha! *high5*

like angus beef, the names create an "exclusivity". a very good marketing strategy hehe.

wagyu has different grades.. i'm very sure subway is using the lowest grade and the worst cut from wagyu cattle. most places are using low-mid range of wagyu grade.

but if you compare this to plan b's wagyu burger, plan b has a more superior product can be because of the different cuts of wagyu present in one patty and also because of the grade hehehe

Eddie, I agree with that too! But I'm still gonna try Subway. One day. Haha! But the best wagyu still has to go to Takumi!
