Foya, Damansara Uptown
May 15, 2019
This friendly new restaurant takes inspiration from a remarkable range of cuisines that crisscross the globe.
Biscuits and chicken sausage gravy, a classic from the southern states of the U.S. (RM14, with soft dough biscuits baked in-house), and lamb lagoto, a tomato-rich, savoury Greek-inspired stew (RM18), are two recipes not often seen in KL's eateries, so we couldn't resist ordering them here.
Closer to home, Foya's nasi lemak showcases richly aromatic rice, bolstered by battered buttermilk chicken for a flavourful meal (RM15). And for fusion fun, the masak lemak spaghetti is pasta that's santan-saturated and spice-spiked, loaded with enough fresh clams and squid to merit the price (RM14).
Desserts make a return to Louisiana, albeit with a few Malaysian twists - Foya's rendition of fried corn beignets might evoke cekodok for some customers (RM12), while its pumpkin pie may taste surprisingly similar to local kuih-muih (RM8).
The beverage list is playful too - the Mojito Malaya is a mocktail of sparkling water sweetened with gula Melaka and pink ginger syrup, brightened with calamansi and fresh mint (RM12), while the Borneo Black Tea with a blend of marmalades is a textured, well-balanced drink that Paddington and many patrons would probably love (RM8).
