They can cook up major marketing campaigns, but can they fry a big breakfast? Malaysian creative agency Forefront is forging a fresh path in the cafe business with its friendly new flagship eatery, Foremula, which follows the contemporary prescription for a chatter-generating F&B destination. The setting is social media catnip, while the food is cheerful & crowd-pleasing, with tasty highlights like the satay-inspired platter of grilled marinated chicken leg with a rich peanut sauce, red onions & cucumbers (RM23). Come early; we sadly missed the sold-out laksa pasta by the time we reached Foremula at 1:30pm, though the mercenaria mercenaria hard clam spaghetti was a still-satisfactory substitute (RM19), the thick raisin toast with coffee caramel sauce sweetened the sting (RM14), & the flat white (RM10) & iced matchapresso (RM15) washed away our sorrow.
