Recently, we, along with other Perth foodies were invited to try out a variety of new dishes featured at The Don Fuzion at The Food Foundry. The Don Fuzion is brought to you by the same people behind the famous ramen burgers and crepe cakes, The Don Burgers. As a new addition in the Victoria Park food scene, The Food Foundry brings a concept similar to The Mantle, a pop-up space featuring different vendors. So far, there’s the Don Fuzion and Karribean Korner.
To start off our epic Don Fuzion feast, we had the Thai Seafood Cocktail, a concoction of prawn, calamari, crab stick and vermicelli. It’s refreshing, light and bursting full of tangy flavours like what you would get from Tom Yum.
We also shared a serve of crab meat croquettes. Deep fried to crisp on the outside and inside it’s bursting full of crab meat. I love how the mango salsa and lemon paprika mayo adds fresh, summery flavours to the crab meat croquettes..
For the mains, we each had a Matcha Baoger and it’s the first baoger to be unleashed in Perth by the Don Fuzion (#firstbaogerinperth). The bun is pillowy soft and fluffy in texture with a slightly sweet flavour from the premium quality matcha, giving the bun it’s green colour. Sandwiched in between the green buns lies the crispy fried chicken strips.
The feast does not end here, we were spoilt with serves of fresh Vietnamese slaw with soft shell crabs.
There’s also the pork knuckle with taiwanese sausage. It’s crispy and crunchy on the skin and tender on the meat. The taiwanese sausage has a similar taste and texture to the Chinese sausage “Lap cheong” with a bit of sweetness to it.
Feeling quite full from our starters and mains, everyone had room left for dessert. As we always say, there’s a separate stomach for desserts, right? We had the Yuzu Panna Cotta. It comprises of layers of smooth textures and tangy flavours from the yuzu. There’s also little surprises of hidden brownies in the middle too.
There was also a surprise dessert which is the caramel macchiato crepe cake. If you love your caramel macchiato, you will love this dessert. It’s sweet with a distinct coffee flavour with layers and layers of thin crepes. Basically, it’s a caramel macchiato in a crepe cake!
Not only The Food Foundry offers a great meal but they do serve up some great teas to complement your meal or together with a cake for afternoon hi-tea. During the night, we sampled on honeydew, rose, sencha and lemongrass and ginger.
