Foundry is beautiful, and the food was lovely as well. Quality of ingredients used from the apps, to mains, to the dessert is great. The steak was juicy and perfectly grilled, but i wish it was seasoned better- i found it a little bit bland. The salmon skin was crisp, and the mean rare just as it should be. Dessert was so-so; wish the cheesecake was a little richer.

LOCATION

Located in a semi-hidden part of BGC, I must say - I didn’t even know this area exists! It’s called the Arya Plaza. The place looks pretty posh at night with its tall palm trees (meron bang short palm trees?), open space, and surrounding high rise buildings. It almost looks like you’re not in Manila.

Foundry is located at the innermost section of the plaza so you’ll do a bit (maybe one minute lol) of walking in order to see it. Just like its location, Foundry also looks pretty upscale. High ceiling, glass walls, dimly-lit.

Also like the Smith Butcher and Grill in Makati, they have the cow/rhino heads mounted on the wall. They also have a bar upstairs that looks pretty cool.

SERVICE

Sooo you can just imagine our surprise when we realized their staff wasn’t well-trained just yet. For instance, they didn’t have our reservation noted down. So when we got there, they were scrambling to put tables and chairs together — as we stood there watching them… awkwardly. When we asked about our orders, the person we asked ended up asking another server to come to our table …only for us to have to repeat what we just asked.

There were also a number of items not available on their menu. Oh and speaking of menus, their steak menu can get confusing!

Each meat type would have corresponding knives as their legend: 1 knife, 2 knives, 4 knives. I understand it’s to describe that it’s good for x amount of people but without the weight information, if you’re ordering for a group, it gets challenging to decide which to get.

This means you’ll need to ask the server for that information and that back and forth conversation eats up time especially since the weight isn’t all the same for each meat type.

We did get a tour of the whole place from one of the servers though so that was cool. I only asked if the upstairs was packed but she wanted to tour me and my sister instead. That was nice. :)

FOOD

128055 Double King Henry Pork Chop (Php 898)
Brined sous vide. Pretty tender and flavorful. Priced fairly. Not bad! Comes with potato puree.

128046 US Ribeye Wet-Aged 2 Knives (Php 4,000)
I think this one was 200-250 grams? Cooked right, meat was ok, not very flavorful though, but for the price, not bad I suppose. I’d say this is good for about 3 not-so hungry people or 2 semi hungry heavy eaters.

TL;DR

Place looks nice, staff needs training, food was okay. Total damage was around 6k for 5 people with the steak, the pork chop, beer, and four sides. Comparing that to Wolfgang’s or Raging Bull in terms of price this is pretty good (you’ll prob spend an average of 10k+ at those places) but I think you can find better steak out there. If you’re looking for a romantic spot though, this might do the trick.
