Foodlogy French-Italian Restaurant at Viva Residency, Sentul: Restaurant Review
French & Italian fare, carefully prepared by two Malaysian sisters coached by a respected French F&B consultant, surfaces this month at this casual restaurant in Sentul’s Viva Residency, not too far from the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre.
Duck Pate On Toasted Bread
Foodlogy might work well for a laid-back lunch or leisurely dinner; relax & munch on toasted bread topped with duck pate (RM15.90). Recipes here feature unexpected twists, like pickled red onions that provide a tang to Foodlogy’s take on crostini.
Apple, Walnuts and Cranberries Salad
Love the flowery plating for this salad of apple, walnuts & cranberries (RM15.90); the visual appeal sure stirs the appetite. Foodlogy’s menu is wide, with over 30 creations now offered; founders Sandy & Lily hope to update the selection monthly.
A touch of truffles turns up throughout Foodlogy’s temptations – truffled croque-monsieur with smoked chicken & cheddar cheese (RM19.90), truffled mushroom cream soup (RM18.90), truffled spaghetti carbonara with beef bacon (RM26.90), & truffled omelettes & scrambled eggs (RM18.90; egg dishes for weekend & public holiday brunches only).
Asian-Influenced Tomato Cream Soup
Asian influences also keep things tantalising, from tomato cream soup tinged with tom yam flavouring & parmesan cheese.
To this crunchy-fresh baguette, evocative of Vietnamese banh mi, stuffed with Cambodian-inspired lok-lak beef strips & Malaysian ulam-style leaves, accompanied by a piquant dipping sauce (RM21.90).
Spaghetti with Rustic Beef Sausage
Main courses span the likes of spaghetti with meaty chunks of rustic beef sausage, baby green peas & broccoli (RM27.90).
Tea-Smoked, Pan-Fried Salmon
And tea-smoked, pan-fried salmon – savoury slabs of irreproachably moist fish on a bed of warm lentils (RM33.90).
Desserts include crepe suzette with orange sauce & vanilla ice cream (RM15.90), though our preferred recommendation would be the pleasurable panna cotta, sweetened with Gula Melaka syrup & textured with sago pearls inside the cream (RM9.90).
Comptoirs Richard Tea and Coffee
Tea & coffee come from Paris brand Cafes Richard; chamomile clocks in at RM10.90, while hot lattes cost RM11.90.
Products On Sale
Products ranging from penne to tea are available for sale. Many thanks to Sandy & Lily for hosting this enjoyable lunch.
