Wood & Steel @ The Strand, Kota Damansara

Cafe hopping has become one of the regular weekend activity of us and one that we visited by chance was Wood & Steel. Located at The Strand,  Kota Damansara facing Giant Hypermarket, Wood & Steel adopted a unique feature of cafe cum furniture & art gallery.

The narrow space was fully utilized with tables and chairs are cramped within the shop area. The place was filled with earsplitting noise from the crowds & music playing when our visit (1st photo) and the emptied space when we leave (below)

Equipped with an eclectic mix of hand-crafted furniture which amalgamated harmoniously with the industrial themed interior of red bricks and unfinished cement walls and exposed steel pipe with light bulbs. All the furniture and art pieces in this cafe are for sale with price tags attached to it.

Lighting fixtures made from steel pipe,  quirky wooden shelves and art pieces adorning the cafe, definitely a kind of setting that encourage me to pick up my camera & start shooting around 😛

Latte (RM 10.00)

If my memory serves me correctly, the latte did not impress hubby even though I read good reviews on their coffee .

Garlic Bread (RM 5.00)

Hmm….nothing to shout about 😛

Egg Sandwich (RM 10.00)

A rather hearty portion for that price tag. Served in a rustic aluminum plate, the sandwich was an ensemble of crispy toasted bread with fried egg and crisp vegetables and slathered with mayonnaise. Also accompanied was some potato chips.

 

Verdict: I rather enjoy the food here (no comment on the coffee though as I don’t drink it) but not the over-packed environment.

  • I don’t like chips with sandwich, i would prefer some healthier options, sandwiches are meant to be healthy no?

  • came here once but wasn’t impressed by the food and drinks neither. Probably the only thing I enjoy was taking photos haha

  • I also found to be always crowded, although I don’t know why. I live just opposite this place! 🙂

    I’ve been several times for lunch, found their food sub-par and stopped going. As for coffee, I prefer the outlet directly opposite (Cosan’s Kota Damansara) which has AWESOME single origin coffee and (relatively) cheap pour overs. Their coffee is awesome compared to Wood & Steel, don’t know what the fuss is about this place, maybe coz it’s halal so it attracts a larger demographic than the non-halal places (which serves coffee + alcohol or some combination).

    I love your photos though!

  • Found good single origin coffee at Thirty Seconds 🙂

  • Came here on a weekday night. Place was empty but had to wait for an hour at least before any food came. Waiters not really friendly. The starters came last after all the main food and food wasn’t good. Very disappointing
