Fogals aka The Blue Cow

Same same but different :).......

Fogal's has always been one of my favourite places in Plaza Damas to go to for a simple but hearty yummy meal (except the desserts, which have never impressed) so I was pretty sad when I heard that it closed down! :(

Thankfully it turned out to be (most probably) a case of twisted rumours - all that happened was that Fogal's had changed its name to The Blue Cow:
Clockwise from top: Outside the Blue Cow.....

Otherwise, the concept and menu remains the same (with the addition of a few new items) - a quality butcher shop which also serves simple yummy meaty meals. :)

One of the new additions is the Spicy Tomato Soup (around RM12? Darn it lost the receipt AGAIN):
Clockwise from top: Yum! The Spicy Tomato Soup.....

Maybe it's an effort to "lighten" up their heavy menu items but I LOVE IT. It has great consistency - not too light yet not too thick, robust flavour, with little bits of bacon to chew on, and a nice spicy kick to make this simple soup special.

As I felt like something lighter for lunch, I tried their B.E.L.T sandwich (about RM16?):
A nice B.E.L.T sandwich (Bacon, Egg, Lettuce, Tomato).....

Overall, it was not bad - a generous portion of bacon, egg, lettuce and tomato made this a pretty filling meal overall.

Overall: Good quality butcher that also serves simple yummy meaty meals in a casual cafe setting BUT (not in this review, but I have eaten here often enough) desserts are not that nice and beef is a bit iffy (although the pork and sausages are always nice)

  3. to Julian Si:Well, good that it hasn't I guess.

    to Ciki:Haha. Sounds cute though, don't you think so? :)

  4. So that's what happened!! Visited recently and no sign of life to be seen... that must have been transition period then. Yay!

  5. to 550ml jar of faith:Oh - so they really did close down? Thankfully it's reopened now.

    Maybe they were bought over? Got a wishy washy answer when I asked about the name change: ("oh nothing. mgmt just decided to change the name. no particular reason")
