It looks like one of the Nutsedges; Yellow Nutsedge (Cyperus esculentus) or Purple Nutsedge (Cyperus rotundus).

Is the flower stem triangular?

RE: Might someone identify this grass?

Thanks for your quick id, after you said sedge did some image searching it is surely yellow nutsedge. I snipped one of the main stems though the scissors deformed it a bit it is 3 sided. Tasting the larger roots with the tip of my tongue, yes I'm aware the mr. hide aproach to plant identification isnt a good idea, reveals an a mild nutty flavour overshadowed by an alkaloid taste. Now I know what stole all the nutrients from my neglected arugala patch.

Thanks again.
