Hello there!!! 🙂
Yeah..it has been quite a while since my last post. Pardon me..I had the roughest time in my life for this year. I had lost one of my dearest hiking buddy 3 weeks ago (RIP Nabil..Al-Fatihah)..and i’m in my final exam week now. So I’ve been busy and struggling to find time to update my blog. I had so many reviews with me but I haven’t had the chance to post it yet. but I promise u guys, my dearest viewers & followers, I will post each and every reviews on restaurants I went and also the food I ate. komen, gamba, ada bertimbun dalam “closet” tu, tinggal nak seterika bagi cantik je sebelum tunjuk kat you guys. Hehe
So..I sat for my Food Critique final exam this morning. Woahh..time really flies! tup tup dh final exam. Alhamdulillah..it went all. Hope for the best! It was already noon when I finished my exam. so I fetched up my sister at home and went for lunch. There is one new cafe in Shah Alam offered coffee, pastry and sandwich under one roof. I got to know about it through Facebook homepage. I’ve been viewing its page for weeks. Coffee and dessert…ermmm..sounds really yummy and I really really really want to try this cafe out. But the problem is, I’m not that familiar with Shah Alam’s routes although I already been in here for almost 3 years now. Yeah yeah..call me lame. I don’t really go out when I’m in Shah Alam..that’s why. Thank God my sister is here. She knows Shah Alam better than me. So i asked her to join me try out this cafe.
Address: Wisma Faiz Azrina, No. 24, Jalan Tengku Ampuan Zabedah A9/A, 40100 Shah Alam, Malaysia.
Operation hour: Mon-Fri 12.00pm-11.00pm
I’m finally here..yeayy!! cafe ni terletak di Seksyen 9. macam mana nak cari? Let me give you the easiest direction to get there. Landmark paling senang is Hotel Concorde Shah Alam. Depan sikit dari Concorde, you’ll see stesen minyak Shell. make sure the hotel and Shell are on your left side yea..after Shell, you’ll see a row of shop lots. Haa..masuk kiri. You’ll see Celcom shop there. Terus amek kanan and jalan straight ke belakang and turn left. Foodsburry is located at the back row of the shop lots.
My first impression of the interior was cool. It’s casual, it looks comfortable and welcoming. everything look new..maklumlah, this cafe baru beroperasi tak sampai 2 bulan pun lagi. It first operated on August 19 this year. So, since my sis and I dh lapar sesangat, we went straight to the menu the menu. Haaa…ni nak bagitahu. Sistem order kat sini is, tengok menu yang memang dh sedia ada atas meja, choose and tick what you want (just like the similar sistem yang ada kat Kopitiam tu…), bring the order list to the cashier counter and bayar terus. diulangi, BAYAR TERUS! Time kitorang datang tak busy..so cashier tu yang datang collect the order from our table. Hehe..time busy, tak dapeklah jang oiii~
Bila tengok je menu, my sister and I was like “ermm..ermmm…” bole tahan jugak harga dia for student level. But okay la..still affordable. Dah kata pun nak try kan. So my sis order Spagetti Bolognese and hot Mango Magic tea, while i ordered Beef Lasagna and mango juice.
This is the Bolognese..the moment it arrived on our table, the first thing that came through our mind was, “eyh, ciputnya??” yup..the portion in my opinion is quite small for RM8. yang perut kecil especially perempuan maybe cukup, tapi untuk kaum lelaki, I don’t think this will make them full. This spagetti comes in 2 sizes – Normal and Extra. I guess boys should go for the Extra one. Tapi, extra portion means extra money lah yer kawan-kawan, abang-abang, adik-adik sekalian..hehe. Additional RM4 will get you the bigger portion. So..comments? Since yang ini my sis yang order, dia makan dulu. 1st bite, she went “uhuuuhuuhuuu..uhuuhuhuuu…” she was pretending like she was crying. Haha..and I totally got what she was trying to tell. both of us always do that crying act. Bila makan something yang tak sedap, we “cried”. It’s like our own Morse Code la. ahahah..kitorg je yang faham. I took my 1st bite on it. yup. Indeed..the spagetti tastes blend and wayyyy too sour. So not to our likings yer.. Masam ya amat! Yeah..both of us are totally aware the fact that Bolognese is a tomato-based sauce but you as a cook must balance the sourness with a little bit of sugar and salt. We asked ourselves, “Tukang masak dia tak rasa dulu ke?” and one more thing, somehow it tastes and smells like dah nak basi. For those yang x biasa mungkin akan cakap dah basi, but I know that the taste and smell came from the canned tomatoes they used. Bau masam je..Berkerut-kerut muka my sis makan. Poor her..she was starving. Nak tak nak, makan jelaa..redha katanya..alahaiii~ Sorry but I am not recommending this menu to you guys. Mango Tea yang dipilih biasa sahaja. They use the Ahmad Tea punya brand. Ahmad! Ahmad! So okay lah.
Moving on to my dish – the Beef Lasagna. First impression? Cantik…looks yummy! Just salad yang dua helai kat tepi tu…macam takde function. Tak letak pun ok. Macam hidup segan mati tak mahu je..dah layu and sikit sangat lah. 2 helai?? come on..whatever lah. Dah lapar. So I started to dig in.
Suapan pertama…”woahhh”! soft, creamy, full of flavors…nice!!! Thank God my dish taste better than my sister’s. I can taste the beef, the Bechamel sauce and the cheese, layer by layer. It was not the best lasagna I have tasted, but I can say it is sedap lah. A good lasagna in my opinion, must be creamy and cheesy with a little zing from the tomato sauce. Yeah, I do recommend this to u guys 🙂 I wished for a fresh Mango juice but they only serve the Mango fruit drink. Boleh lah..since dah berapa hari mengidam Mango juice tak dapat-dapat. Just a suggestion, include fresh fruit juice on your menu lah, Foodsbury..fresh juice! fresh juice! Tanamlah mangga depan kedai..hehe :p
Things I like in Foodsbury…
- Nice atmosphere. Very casual..ada sofas where you can chill and relax while having coffee or reading magazine. Not only that, customers can also play varieties of Boarding Games. Ramai yang datang with family and friends. Makan, chit chat..yang datang buat assignment pun ada!
- Friendly service. Waiter tak ramai kat Foodburry..dia lah cashier, dia lah waiter. Dia buat air, dia lah server. maybe sebab baru lagi kot..tak ramai pekerja. But they are all friendly. Sekejap-sekajap datang tanya, “Ok?” “So what is missing on your table? Oh, your food yea…tunggu sekejap ye” They come with smiles and that is good.
- All foods and drink came in paper plates and cups. I like that concept. Pakai buang. Very hygienic..and..and..it can be recycled. Yeay! Go greeen! It looks cool too though 🙂
- They have lunch hour promotions for student. Only RM10. Pelajar-pelajar yang dikasihi sekalian, ape lagi?
Things I dislike..
- The Spagetti Bolognese. Enough said.
- The order system. Tak berapa nak gemar lah kalau dah duduk nak kena bangun, jalan pergi kaunter untuk buat order. Leceh.
- Tukang buat air. They have a window service, so I can see what is going on inside the kitchen. Yang buat air was a lady. Rambut panjang..tak ikat, tak bercover. Food handler..please. Hygienic sikit lah. Basic knowledge..I don’t want any hair in my foods or drinks.
- Harga Mille Crepe tu…kurangkanlah sikit. Hiihii
The concept of Foodsburry is great actually. Modern-urban-casual kind of style. Tempat remaja-remaja suka lepak you know? Menu simple-simple..ada coffee, ade dessert, ok lah. Just nak hang out dengan kawan-kawan, chit chat, gosip sikit-sikit, killing time..Good to try. I recommend this cafe to you guys sebab it is not fair for me to critic this cafe just because of the Bolognese. There is still a lot of dishes on the menu list that I haven’t tried yet. I believe antara banyak-banyak menu tu mesti ade yang “Killer” or menu “To Die For”. Tak try tak tahu, kan? Perhaps you guys can go there to try other menu and share with me the review. I would love to go back to Foodsbury to try out their Mille Crepe and Coffee. Berbaloi atau tidak? Well, let me answer as a student lah yer..since most of you guys yang follow my blog are students kan. I rase tak berbaloi compare dengan portion yang diberi. Tak berbaloi..kalau makan hari-hari. Hehe..sekali-sekala nak tukar selera or nak celebrate birthday kawan ke, kawan dapat girlfriend/boyfriend baru ke, nak gosip-gosip sambil makan dessert, apa salahnya. Datanglah Foodsbury..boleh tengok mural Gajah minum kopi. Hee..go and give it a try okay? 🙂
So far, hanya ada satu je tempat yang serve the best Pasta dish yg I pernah rasa. Sedap, portion besar and affordable price. Which I dah makan since high school lagi. Kat mana? Haaaa…wait for my next entries! 🙂
