Food Foundry @ Section 17.

I know I’m kinda outdated to post this review now. Somehow it was my first exploration to this super secluded restaurant in Section 17 after drooling over the reviews about Food Foundry’s delicious Mille Crepe here, here, here, here, here, and here (Omg, this restaurant is so famous among floggers huh).

We ordered 2 tapas, 2 desserts and 2 mains which I believe that the portion is reasonable but the waitress gave us that strange look and asked us if we can finish off everything 0_o So embarrassing …

I had the Stir fried Udon with Kung Po Prawns (RM13.90). I was amazed by the generous serving of big fat crunchy prawns. The nudle strands were well coated with flavourful Kung Po sauce but the dish was darn oily.
Char Siew Bao went for the Chicken Cordon Bleu (RM14.90). Deep fried chicken chop with melted cheese on top? I already felt muak when looking at the dish.
For tapas, we had button mushrooms in olive oil (RM6.90) and Thai chicken wings (RM6.90).
A basket of bread to go with tapas. Found some bits of onions and herbs in the bread slices which made it so flavourful.
Wanted to try the Green Tea flavoured Mille Crepe but they were all sold out so I opted for the Strawberry Cream Mille Crepe (RM 9). Took one bite and I felt so disappointed, the texture of the Mille Crepe was too dry, maybe due to one whole day of refrigeration.
I was quite tempted by the dessert selection and ordered a slice of lemon tart (RM6.50).
The lemon custard was deliciously tangy and smooth, at least it tasted nicer than the Mille Crepe.

Oh yes, by the way, we managed to wolf down all the food :)

You're not the only one who's ketinggalan zaman. I just discovered Food Foundry last Saturday. lol. I only tried the Mille Crepe. I bought the whole cake, and it wasn't dry. Maybe it was fresher than the one you had. Going back again to try the other stuff.

haha...2 outdated floggers here. Yeap, i think my strawberry cream Mille Crepe has gone stale. U shud go bck n try other food, pretty good wiv generous serving and r/ble pricing, though darn oily.

Xiu Long Bao said...

citygal: okok...now become 3 ;p yah, this place is very secluded. Remember to bring along the map or u will easily get lost in dat area.

Precious Pea said...

Luckily the green tea mille crepe sold out..i tried once..HORRIBLE!!!! The best is the strawberry and chocolate. Heard their apple pie not bad but always sold out.

jason said...

Cheese on Cordon Bleu?? Prefer the traditional one with cheese inside, can see the cheese oozing out. Yummy!

Tummythoz said...

Actually, 4. A friend who has been just cannot understand why the hype about this place & just refuse to take me. I'm lost in most of the sections & ss(es).

tankiasu said...

Used to be one of my fav hangout place with my friends. But recently their standard has dropped quite significantly. The price has went up a little as well while the portion has gone down. I noticed the staff there aren't the same anymore. Sad to say, I won't be revisiting them anytime soon.

wmw said...

I'm in the same camp as tankiasu. I really don't know why they took out some tasty items of their menu. Put in new but less tasty ones and hike up the price. The food doesn't taste as good as before and I haven't been there since Dec 06.

Xiu Long Bao said...

precious pea:Too bad cus i luv green tea flavoured desserts :( Nxt to try is the chocolate mille crepe n' apple pie then.

jason: I think there are some cheese or bacon stuffed inside the chicken chop. Too creamy for me...yeee...

tummythoz:haha, no.4 here! Their mains are quite gud wiv affordable pricing. Take the map along wiv u!

tankiasu:Really? My first time trying n i thought some of the mains are quite gud wiv generous portions.

wmw:Yeap, i noticed dat the price has went up recently. A ringgit or two. But still affordable if compared wiv other classy western restaurants.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

i also got blog about dis..!
err i didnt like the food there lor..the tapas served to me was cold!..then they serve me penne instead of udon..

jason said...

Bacon for Cordon Bleu?? That would be good as they use ham usually

teckiee said...

aie...i remember i wanted to try the cakes there... but bad luck. The place was closed when I was there.

Char Siew Bao said...

LoL. Same here. Couldn't understand the hype over this place... Mille crepe was juz ok... or maybe it was really not fresh anymore...

Somemore the waitress asked "u sure u can finish ah?"

Well, appreciate the consideration but when it comes to eating, i eat like a pig and so far i have not ordered something i can't finish... unless it came rotten of coz! :P

Timothy said...

I think Food Foundry does not serve good food as they used to. They changed the menu a few times ... but I think service quality is still there. Occasionally, aspiring artist perform on stage there. Lucky if you can catch them while they are doing their gig.

Xiu Long Bao said...

joe: hey, they served me linguine instead of udon too but i settled for dat. At least the pricing is affordable mar.

jason: So fatty wiv that combination!

teckiee:Too bad. Try another day! U might wan 2 try their famous mille crepe tho i dun like it. But heard dat other cake selections r quite gud too.

CSB:So embarrasing when she asked us dat ques 0_o

timothy:Really? Got free show sumore...I thought the food was not bad.

sc said...

was told by my frens that the standard of the food had drop significantly recently..have not been there since nov last year. i had the strawberry milli crepe which was very bad! try the original flavour (buttermilk) which is real good.. unless..did they remove this flavour from their menu??

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
You and char siu bao definitely big eaters. haha! I don't think I can even finish half of the food. :P

jason said...

LOL fatty but yummy! As you said, lepas makan baru bersenam :P

Xiu Long Bao said...

sc: Agree! the strawberry cream mille crepe was soooo disappointing. The original version is still available, must try it later.

kok: Sure or not. Not that much food lar, 2 mains, 2 tapas, 2 desserts...normal mah.

jason:Senam kuat pun tak dapat burn dat much kalori ohh...

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
Errmmm...oklah..Put it this way, if I'm really hungry, I don't think the food is enough for me. haha!

By the way, just curious here. The food sooo expensive in KL. For instance, this meal already costs you RM50+. How much do you all earn to cover all the monthly expenses ah? Since I'm graduating soon, so wanna do surveys on the market "price". :P

tankiasu said...

So bila wanna have lunch together my fellow Damansara corporate slaves!? :P

MeiyeN said...

hehe...somehow i don't quite like da mille crepe here... too sweet for my tastebuds!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

kok let me answer tat question..not much at all!..hopefully by next yr standard accounting grads rate r around 2200-2400..fingers crossed

Xiu Long Bao said...

kok: haiz, fresh grad doesn't earn dat much one orr. But we still need to eat rite? Eating out is pure comfort after a hectic day.

tankiasu:haha...i oni hav one hour lunch time. Wait till i move to that damansara heights area then we can go out for lunch!

meiyen:Really? Maybe the original flavour is too sweet? My strawberry cream was ok.

joe:PWC still havent review the pay meh? Once reviewed will be more than wat u stated (based on KP's rate) happy?

Kok said...

joe: How about engineers rate ah? haha! 2200-2400 ah? Hmm..Is it enough? I doubt so. hehe.

xiu long bao: Agree! No matter what, eat should come at first priority! haha! Without food, life is dull...:P

Aston Villa rode their luck at Hull City where an 88-minute own goal from Kamil Zayatte saw them leapfrog three points clear of Arsenal and into fourth place in the Premier League wow gold with a 1-0 win.

Villa had to survive Hull penalty wotlk gold appeals for a handball against Ashley Young in time added on, television replays showing that referee Steve Bennett wow gold correctly rejected the claims after consulting a linesman.

Bennett had been involved in controversy after just five minutes when American goalkeeper Brad Friedel looked to have handed Hull the initiative and threaten Villa's return to the Champions League qualifying wow gold zone.

Friedel spilled the ball under pressure from Nick Barmby and stand-in right-back Nigel Reo-Coker turned it into his own net as he attempted to wow gold clear.

But Bennett cut short celebrations at the KC Stadium -- and let Friedel off the hook -- when he ruled out the score for an wow wotlkapparent infringement by Barmby.

Zayatte's intervention from a Young cross bound for wow gold Gabriel Agbonlahor then saw Villa leapfrog Arsenal and draw level with Manchester United on 38 points -- seven adrift of leaders Liverpool and four wow gold behind Chelsea.

Stung by an on-pitch dressing down wow gold by manager Phil Brown at Manchester City last week, Hull showed five changes and a vastly improved performance.

Promoted Hull were looking for only their second win in 11 games while wow gold Villa arrived unbeaten in seven and it looked to be heading for a goalless draw when the home side suffered a cruel late blow.

Dimitar Berbatov buy flyff gold scored the only goal as Manchester United beat Final Fantasy XI gil Middlesbrough 1-0 at Old Trafford on Monday buy cheap ffxi gil to move to within seven points of Premier League ffxi gil leaders Liverpool -- with two vital buy Warhammer gold games in hand.

The Bulgarian Warhammer gold international striker fired home a volley from close-range in the buy Warhammer gold 69th minute to give United the victory, leaving Middlesbrough deep in relegation trouble just one place above Warhammer gold the drop zone in 16th place.

Prior to the goal, United wow po had missed a host of chances as Middlesbrough's wow or defense held firm, but the deadlock was finally broken when Michael Carrick's left-wing cross bounced back off Boro defender wow geld David Wheater into Berbatov's path.

Berbatov, Wayne Rooney, wow geld Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafael, wow gold Nemanja Vidic and Ji-sung Park had earlier all squandered chances buy wow gold against a determined Middlesbrough side.

Rooney should have given the wow gold hosts the lead when he sprang world of warcraft gold the offside trap in the 35th minute but inexplicably chose to pass rather wow gold than shoot.

Then, two minutes wow soldi before half-time, defender Chris Riggott wow gold produced a superbly-timed block inside the penalty area to deny Berbatov buy wow gold just as he was about to shoot.

After Berbatov's goal,wow gold Park produced a contender world of warcraft gold for miss of the season when he wow gold somehow ballooned over the wow oro crossbar from just three yards out from substitute wow gold Gary Neville's cross.

But, despite not adding buy wow gold to their tally, the three points were United's wow gold and their next league game is now against second-placed Chelsea, who are just four points ahead wow power leveling of Sir Alex Ferguson's side

I am sorry to say this , but with the sec17 shop environment , the food is not worth the price. Just another overrated and over-priced restaurant by bloggers. Went for lunch, sweating like hell! Crepe tasted so so.
