“Good concept, but poor execution”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

This is an Asian version of the Chipotle quick-casual concept. The format and the interior design are very similar. You select an entree base (rice, noodles or salad greens), a protein (steak, pork, chicken, shrimp, or tofu), vegetables (a mix of vegetables, either steamed or stir-fried), sauce (seven to choose from), and toppings (like chopped nuts). The two sauces that we tried were pretty good (peanut sauce and mango-lime sauce). However, the food tasted just OK, and it was room temperature by the time we sat down. Additionally, the crispy tofu did not taste good, and the onions in the vegetable mix were not cooked through. While we were eating, I looked longingly across the parking lot at the new Potbelly's, which will likely be there long after Foosia is gone...
