Food Foundry Made our Weekend!

Saturday 20 June 2009

We absolutely refused to get outta bed till late and thus were late for the dogs' grooming appointments. We deposited them at sunny DogRoomz and then headed to lunch at Little Taiwan at Pearl Hotel nearby.

Silly me to have suggested trying out that restaurant - as it was the same restaurant as the one we always frequented in Mid Valley Mega Mall (top floor). However, here, the ambiance was much better and very relaxed.

I steeled myself against ordering my usual (spicy beef noodles) and tried out the claypot braised beef horfun. It was delicious and the serving of beef was generous! I washed that down with a papaya milk drink. Alan's Tang Tang noodles with chicken chop was also yummy but his tiramisu shake did not come with the scoop of icecream as illustrated. Only after asking did we find out that if you wanted icecream, you had to top up the amount to be charged. :P

After the meal, we headed to our usual hangout - MVMM. Our facial was due at Cres at 3pm and we roamed around first and checked out electric appliances (namely TV/ players / washing machines) for our new house.

After our much-needed facial (after which they cajoled us to sign up another package with them), we bummed around MV and had an early dinner and then we buoght some yummy curry puffs at the Gardens for the girls at DogRoomz and set off to fetch our pups home.

Sunday 21st June 2009

Our eyelids twitched to an open at around 930am and I decided to fix the dogs and the husband some eggs for breakfast. Then, we indulged in SIMs 3 until it was time for lunch and headed off to Food Floundry (BG-8 Happy Mansion, Jalan 17/13, 46400 PJ. Tel : +603-7955 3885)

Alan had woken up with the craving (his ex-colleague had brought him there on one occasion) and he was as excited as a little boy to show me this hideout. The cafe was a quaint little one tucked away in the corner of a residential area and near UM. Although the paint was falling off the walls and the seats were a tad uncomfortable, I decided to dine with an open mind :)

Since it was Papa's Day, it was MY TREAT. We shared a starter of Rustic Mushroom Soup (RM10) which was in our opinion "OK only". Alan said that my mushroom soup was yummier. ahahha I actually agree!

My meal was Chicken Cordon Bleu (Rm 16)which contain chicken breast meat and thus wasn't exactly very tasty. Healthy , yes, tasty, not really.

Luckily it wasn't that expensive :P Alan had his coveted Grilled Rib Eye Steak (RM 31) which wasn't done "rare" but was delicious anyway. We also shared the world's most delicious cake - Vanilla Mille Crepe (Rm 8/ slice). Ohhhhhhh. It's made out of layers of crepe and vanilla cream and just melts in your mouth. The dessert solely made up for my lacklustre lunch and I went away with a satisfied belly in the end. :D

Our next stop was Desa Park City to check out what Pioneer had to offer. Alan is insistent on buying their home entertainment system. We were entertained by a very nice salesboy who patiently played disc after disc for us to appreciate.

We also hopped into The Baby Loft to check out their stuff and came away with a pair of papayashoes for our baby on 40% off and a swaddle (something to wrap the baby up in whilst he sleeps) for the first month or two.

It started to drizzle and I went into Petsmore to check some prices and oogle at their cutie pie dogs. I saw this tiny silky terrier + Maltese mix which looked entirely like a silky terrier except for the fringe which was chalky white. hahaha Very unique. hahaha.

We did some quickie-grocery shopping then and picked up a couple of items before deciding on Rakuzen for dinner. *sigh* WRONG MOVE.

After ordering , the waitress came back 10minutes later to inform me that my order had already sold-out. I then decided on another item whilst Alan's unagi rice set was served up already. I waited and waited and waited.... and because we were seated by the door and didn't get any aircon, my face grew hotter and hotter . After Alan had finished his meal, I decided that enough was enough and cancelled my dinner order with a young waiter. N since the waitress who took my order walked past, I informed her also that I had cancelled my order so just pls bring me the bill.

Finally, my curry rice turned up and the manager tried to cajole me to accept the order. I refused. I was too hot and bothered to stomach it anyway and told her I had already cancelled my order since my husband had already finished his meal. :P The manager walked away, carrying my dinner set, without a word of apology.

My kind husband then paid for the bill (including the service charge which I told him not to pay) and we headed for home. I had my thick birds nest waiting for me , which Alan painstakingly boiled for me and so I did not go hungry that night LAH!
