I have heard and read about FOO’D by Chef Davide Oldani since its opening a few years back but never got to try it until recently. Before FooDee Global Concept brought it in Manila, I have never heard of Chef Davide Oldani, but he is the chef-owner of the one-Michelin-starred D'O restaurant in just outside of Milan in Italy. Chef Davide Oldani is popular for his Cucina Pop Style wherein he makes incredible contemporary Italian dishes that can be considered as luxury food but are priced affordably. The same concept is also applied to its Manila counterpart. FOO’D also offer clienteles with posh and comforting ambiance paired with quality food and service.
I was invited to try out the new dishes at @ created by FooDee’s new Corporate Executive Chef, Chef Carlo Miguel and his team. The menu still sticks to the same cooking traditions of the original FOO’D menu only that Chef Carlo put some of his additional touches to the dishes. Furthermore, what surprised me was that FOO’D offers 3-course pre-fixed menu priced at only PHP 800 and then if you want to add more dishes if you want to. Besides that other offerings include a more high-end 3 to 5 course tasting menu that starts at PHP 1500 to 2,900.
With all the dishes that I got to try that night here are my favorites: Cannellini, Duck Liver Parfait, Foie Gras, Smoked Duck Carpaccio, Mushroom Riso, Tenderloin with Cipolla Caramellata and Raspberry Lychee Sphere.
