Brunch @ FIX

August 30, 2014 in European (cafe) by thywhaleliciousfay

Having learnt of a poolside cafe from Burpple, my girlfriends and I were excited to check them out.

Although FIX looked like it’s of walkable distance from Toa Poyah MRT station, my girlfriends and I decided to take a taxi from HDB Hub. And our cab fare came up to a low $6.

Knowing that FIX has a pool view, it was pretty easy locating them within the club. Oh yes, just head towards the swimming pool! But what we were not prepared for was that FIX is a non-air conditioned cafe. Yup! They are an open-concept cafe. But thankfully it was drizzling when we arrived, so the weather was ideally cool for us to chill.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Main + Milkshake set, $14 comprised of:-

(A) Mushroom & feta naanwich (veg) (above) – Otherwise $10 if ordered a-la carte. This was a little tricky and messy to eat, especially with the egg. I actually expected it to be served rolled. But this was really good! Naan was thick and slightly browned on the exterior. Fluffy and chewy on the inside. And yes, we were given nachos too!

(B) Black sesame with brittle milk shake (above) – Otherwise $7.

2) Cake + Drink set, $10 comprised of:-

(A) Donuts (above) – $7 if ordered a-la carte. Donuts were light and fluffy. We left the donuts untouched for a while, and it was good to see no oil stains left on the baking paper. And with 2 options of sauce to choose from, we went with salted egg. Although we managed to try the lemon curd sauce too. Keke. And I must say both sauces were equally good. Salted egg was runny and grainy in texture while lemon curd, which served a good tangy punch, was thick and cloggy.

(B) Iced lemongrass tea (above) – Otherwise $4.

3) Cake + Drink set, $10 comprised of:-

(A) Twice-baked sourcream cheesecake (above) – Otherwise $7. This was not too bad although I did not like the base which was soggy.

(B) Latte (above) – $4.50 if ordered a-la carte.

4) Crispy soy chicken drumlets, $7 (above)

5) Iced mocha, $6 (above)

FIX is a nice place to chill and people watch. It was quite funny cause there was always one person swimming during the 2 hours we were there. Not the same person of course. And so we joked that swimming caused the six-abs person to swell to become fat, and finally aged into an old man. Ha!

So yes, do come and order the sets which are more value for money.
