Food Foundry

Friday, October 20, 2006

Thinking of a place to have your meal can be quite an uphill task at times. I know it sounded absurb, especially coming from a self-proclaimed "food reviewer" such as me... . I was somewhere in PJ at that moment, and "abundance" is an understatement when it comes to food establishment in PJ. Alas .. due to the lack of food, or probably a little low on brain air ... I can't come up with any place to eat. Fortunately, with what's left of my thinking brain cells .. I manage to churn out a fellow food blogger's link ... and many thanks to Joan Chew or simply nicknames "FOOD Lover" for her suggestions, I manage to have dinner!

FOOD FOUNDRY is located in Jalan 17, PJ ... somewhere near ... geesh .. I really can't think of any popular landmark there to describe to you. Let's just say, this cafe is not an easy place to find .. especially if you aren't familiar with PJ. But once you find it, chances are you won't regret what you see. As I mentioned, it's tucked in a corner .. in between some low cost flat/apartment in Jalan 17 ...

My first impression of the place? Whoaa ... wayyy cool .....
it's somewhat cozy yet stylish. Even the signboard is quite happening as some would say. With a big screen latched in one corner, one can already feel so much at home when hanging out here. And apparently, this is IS quite happening ... I tried googling for "Food Foundry" (like I always do, for my research before posting my articles) and came up with this name "Project OMG!"

Here's an excerp from Project OMG!

Project OMG! stubbornly tries to exist beyond being 'just another art scene' in a nook of the Klang Valley. Opening its doors every last Saturday of the month to all and sundry, this event is a platform for poets, singer- songwriters, short films and non-hazardous flame jugglers to showcase raw and original material for all to listen, see and enjoy.
Anyway, getting back to the topic of food ... very quickly we found our table, sat down and ordered our food. The menu is gorgeous, with very deliciously shot images of their dishes .. and superb layout. Not too many varieties, therefore choices are limited although not necessarily bad .. since you go straight to the point and order, especially when you're hungry!


We started off with the appetizer, the Kerabu Mango ... which is a little sour, with a a little tingle touch of sweetness. Now, that will definitely whet your appetite. Then came our soup, yes ... the Ox-Tail Soup 'ala Kampung style. Unlike the usual Ox-Tail soup you find elsewhere, this looked like the ones you get from your local mamak stall, nice .. hot ... and spicy!


While waiting for the main course, we ordered some Tapas ... just for some 'inbetweens'. Tapas, a Spanish cuisine ... are small quantities of food sold with a drink in. They can be taken as a snack or combined to make up a full meal.


I guess Tapas must be one of their speciality here since there's quite a range of it, from Lamb Meatball to Thai Chicken with Pumpkin. As for us, we settled for some Eggplant in Spicy Sauce and Grilled Prawns .. both served with Pita Bread. For the uninitiated, Pita Bread is a round, wheat flatbread made with yeast (apparently so, according my my faithful source, the Wikipedia). For a Spanish cuisine, both our tapas dishes tasted way too 'oriental' .. so to say. I guess this is where the "fusion food" terminology kicks in. Heads up for those with mild tastebuds .. they can be a little spicy ...


For main course, we had Carbonara with Turkey Ham spaghetti ... which, is an Italian dish. It's thick and creamy .. should be a favourite among cheese lovers. Did you know, Carbonara an Italian pasta sauce ... comes from carbone, which is Italian for coal, and many believe the dish derives its name because it was popular among charcoal makers.


We also had the Pan Fried Dory with pepper marmalade ... the fish, is a little dry but fortunately the pepper marmalade complimented the taste which made the meal, simply wonderful !


Somewhat stuffed, I just had to make that order of Mille Crepe (mille = million) ... ! I know very little about this Mille Crepe, but they did say that .. one must not miss the opportunity to taste it, at least once!! My slice of crepe finally came ... and as I sink my little fork through it, I began to wonder what is so special about this Mille Crepe. You'll know it the moment you take your first bite ... through 20+ layers of fresh chocolate cream and thin layers of crepe ....

I would like to quote this from another fellow blogger Jason Mumbles who manage to describe the feeling quite dramatically ...

“很有质感!” Soft and thin crust, sandwiched with milky cream, and the thousand layers texture feeling that melts inside your mouth, it is definitely a hero among all heroes (蛋糕中的英雄豪杰)

Trust me Jason, most good food don't look that good. I am not saying these Mille Crepes are the best but ...

That I know, but that slice of Mille Crepe gave me a feeling that they were making the Mille Crepe for the sake of selling it off to earn that few bucks. I don't feel any effort/heart put in it; judging from the look of it.

Yeah. guess you're right. I've not eaten any other Mille Crepe besides this one ... hence I shouldn't be commenting much on it. You mentioned abt the other Mille Crepe shop, I should go try that one. ...

I am posting this comment on behalf of a friend who visited Food Foundry after reading my post.

"Yesterday evening, I went there with Koat, Ken Yi & Ken Wei.
I approached a waiter to get me a table for 4 pax since i saw the face quite pack.....
The waiter just say full.........& ignore me....

I stubborn, so i waited a bit more lah....Then no waiter help me, & pretend not to see me & Ken Yi (Koat & Ken Wei looking for parking space).
So I cannot tahan & approached another chinese waiter......I said I need a table for 4 pax. He said all fulll & that's it. As though it's my problem........
Hey....this is a service industry so must be CUSTOMER ORIENTED.

I got so frustrated, so we adjourned to another restaurant 6-10......

Please tell your fren to post my complain on his blog......me still geram over it......"
