Wood & Steel Cafe, The Strand Kota Damansara

With cafe being the latest food fad nowadays, it is not surprising to see so many new cafe popping up in the Klang Valley. Each has their own unique theme & style, got their own pattern here pattern there, you know lah.

So I was quite excited when I stumbled upon a few nice shots in instagram taken in Wood & Steel Cafe. Wood & Steel Cafe is a new hipster cafe, located in the hipster corner of The Strand, Kota Damansara. It took me a while to locate this cafe as I was just blindly following the mental image of the map I memorized in my head.
Walk into Wood & Steel, and you'll instantly feel as if you have time-traveled to the 70s with the vintage & retro decorations. Red bricks wall, with quirky knick-knacks & decorative item placed on the wooden shelving units & the wooden furniture, being shine upon the warm lights, it hit me that I am going to stay at this place for a while.
All those leather bags/casing & notebooks displayed on the rack is actually for sale too! Pretty vintage & cool but the price is a little too steep for me :( If you pay attention you'll notice that their tables & chairs have price tag attached to them too! Apparently most of the things in this cafe is for sale! (:
Looks really cosy, doesn't it? :D My partner in crime of the day, Pei Qi and I switched seats 3 times because all of the seat has their own unique background for camwhoring (what's a girl day out without spamming the camera?) and we were so indecisive.

Wood & Steel cafe is a self-service cafe where you have to make your order & payment at the counter. So yay for nett price on menu :)
Our food arrived promptly upon ordering.
Hot Chocolate RM9
I was really impressed with the coffee art which was so beautifully done. However, taste wise, it was really disappointing. The hot chocolate tasted rather diluted & powdery, like a 3-in-1 drink =(
Breakfast in Bed RM9
Poached Egg & Chicken Ham on a bruschetta, topped with Hollandaise sauce & served with a side of greens
The eggs were perfectly poached as the golden yolk flowed out beautifully as we poke through the eggs with a knife. However, this dish does taste a little odd as it was served cold to us. I am not sure whether the dish was supposed to be served cold or it was left out too long as we didn't get clarifications from the waiter. My partner didn't really fancy the dish as she prefer to have it warm.
Chicken & Cheese Bruschetta RM15
Chicken Chunks & Cheese on toasted Bruschetta
The bruschetta was nice & crunchy. The tender & succulent chicken pieces, along with the hot molten cheese tasted a lot like a pizza, minusing the jelak-ness :) Recommended!

Overall Rating: 6.5
While the food served wasn't really memorable, the service at the cafe was really pleasant & welcoming (: When I asked the staffs for the WiFi password, they replied me with a cheeky face saying "nowifihere". Geddit? (: The staffs was also really attentive & friendly (: The environment was really alluring, relaxing & soothing. I could stay there the whole day.

Wood & Steel Cafe has revamped their menu recently I think, judging from the menu they posted in Living Social. Hopefully the quality of food has been improved too as Wood & Steel cafe has a fairly great potential.
