Pronounced as "Fire Kitchen and Drink", this dimly-lit bistro restaurant is located in the heart of the CBD area, with pretty wall murals exuding a vintage feel. Service is excellent and they serve awesome SGD$25.00 set lunches with menus changed every 2-3 months. It was a revisit, to check out what is instore this quarter of the year.
The menu usually comprise European fusion dishes with an innovative twist. During my first visit, we had some Soup with popcorn, mains of Prawn Aglio Oilo and Barramundi, followed by lovely dessert of Poached Pear.
This time round, we tried their new set lunch menu, it was a pity that the 2 beef items were not available for the day. Just for your information, their dinner menu is very much more extensive, according to the service crew.
For the appetizers, the Red Wine Braised Beef Shin (with roasted shallot, pickled carrot and bacon) was awesome, as was the Torched Salmon Fillet (with avocado, semi-dried tomatoes, Spanish onions, ebiko and sweet wasabi sauce).
Mains were served when we completed the starters - the generous portion of Roasted Chicken Breast (with ratatouille, roasted baby potato and basil) was tender and moist; delicious. The Barramundi Tagine, served with sauteed vegetables, semi-dried tomatoes, olive, basil and an interesting fried gnocchi, was flavourful, and succulent.]
Moving onto desserts, the Vanilla Mille-Feuille was served with caramelised apple and vanilla ice-cream - beautiful and elegant flavours; while the Peach Crumble Tart was bolder with its red wine gelee and aromatic jackfruit ice-cream.
We enjoyed dining at FYR Cycene Ond Drinc tremendously, especially with the personalised service of one of their service crew who was always smiling, and checking to ensure that everything was marvellous.
