Food Foundry @ PJ

This is what you see when you take a seat after a long search for this place...

Long overdue..stupid internet..stupid S*ream*x..( i am not supposed to defame anyone or thing..just incase i get sued)..Well presenting Food Foundry, a place that got famous overnite for its mille crepe cake..and raved upon so many blogs that attracted me to try this out.. So one of the things that caught my eye was the menu that they have on their website..google it..it was cheap..not so when i visited there...mood all gone down d...Food wise..let me tell you as i intro one dish by one dish in no order..lazy to do it in order..

There call this the Kung Pao Prawns Udon..Does this look like Udon to you?? I didnt even bother..they probably tell you they ran out off Udon and gave you Penne..Well the taste..the concept was there..but little does the chef know that the noodle is almost impossible to seep much flavour into..so it was a thin coating of kung pao sauce and when you bite in..its pasta..the prawns was nothing to shout about..infact abit mushy..ermm..was it right to visit?

Next up, i know..its dessert..haha well think of my entry as abstract ok..Now honest to god, i think the concept is awesome..but the cream they put in between..hmm again i wasnt bothered to ask..but it tasted sourish..now does that mean it is not fresh? but there was a whole bunch of it in the fridge..well i guess i love the crepes..but just leave out that creme...

Now back to appetizers, eggplant cook some style that i cant remember, but i still remember the waiter thought i was dumb and i didnt understand the meaning of tapas...hes like..this is very small size..well what would i expect of RM 7.95..not tat little though mate..and definitely not cold n oily...

Another main course, the chicken chop..although it looked oily..it tasted good..well my gf said she definitely chose the right one..so i guess the lesson learnt is to order the obvious..bcoz i doubted her choice because it sounded so boring..grilled chicken chop..RM 17

Last..back to another tapas..Would you pay near RM 8 for this? The bread was cold..not toasted..the mushrooms were cold..oh my god..i think they need to know the meaning of tapas..

I am sorry to the owners of Food Foundry and all the previous reviewers that loved the place..but i honestly wouldnt visit it again..well maybe not order the tapas..Not my cup of tea i guess..Sorry..at quite steep prices..this would be bearly a 5/10 for me..have anyone gone there recently??

Best part is that if you order a soup as a starter, your mains will arrive first...as the soup takes longer to prepare! Parking there is easy, and free though.

I tried there once with my college mates and honestly we will never visit again... The lasagna that I ordered was perhaps the worst lasagna I had ever had - it was so oily that the plate it was served in was holding about 1cm of oil at the bottom. It was terrible and it tasted really bad too. I don't know what the hype is with this place!
