NOSA: This time last year, I'd put good money on Foundry having the best Full English in Lagos. Infinitely better than that one place that puts boiled eggs in theirs and claims it was a simple error.

Now? Not so much.

FOLLY: If you've ever had the Whitehouse Breakfast at Casa Lydia, the Americana at Foundry is essentially the same thing. I've been eating both for a long time and have never been disappointed until today.

NOSA: Maybe the chef is still out of the country. The mushrooms were tasteless. Like they just got them out of a can or something. The eggs seriously lacked salt. 

FOLLY: The mushroooms were just sad and they used to be proper fried with the onions. These might have gone from can  random container  microwave → our plates.

FOLLY: Every other time I've ordered this I've gotten full size fluffy pancakes. Why change something that isn't broken ? These pancakes reminded me of the crepes at Four Points, which I hate. 

NOSA: The pancakes look like add-ons you get in those My First Kitchen playsets.

NOSA: And the bacon tasted like fried ham. Sigh. I really don't know what happened to Foundry. Fell off big time. 

FOLLY: The bacon was probably fried ham, but I liked it.  


NOSA: I mean, just look at how good The Cockney looked last year.


Damn, Foundry. Last year you was the man, homie

FOLLY: I don't believe this was their best showing, so I'll definitely go back and give 'em another chance.
