We have been seeing people post pictures of food from FIX and figured that we should give it a try 🙂
This is a cafe that is found inside the HomeTeam NS-JOM Clubhouse (something like SAFRA Clubhouse but its for the Police and SCDF personnel). It is an overhead-bridge-walk over PIE from Toa Payoh Central. If you come from the Balestier side, it is quite near from Wheeler’s Yard.
Despite being an open-air venue, the fans were strong enough for us to remained cool throughout the meal. In fact, it was rather windy! The decorations were also quite interesting, with metal pipes as design for the bar counter, and metal scaffoldings between benches. Above us were lightings made with bicycle wheels! Situated next to the pool, it was quite a lovely place to hang out for a few hours.
We ordered a Crispy Soy Chicken Drumlets ($7), Beef & Kimchi Naanwich ($11), Donuts with Salted Egg Dip ($7), Latte ($4.50, or top up $2 with every main ordered) and a Homemade Iced Lemongrass Tea ($4).
They had run out of drumlets, so we had 8 mid-joints instead. They were my favourite dish of the meal! Sweet and savoury, the meat was moist and tender. Totally enjoyed it!
The naanwich, which was their creation, was not bad (although a little small), and spicy beef and salty kimchi complemented the soft and chewy naan well. It was corned beef mixed with some small beef pieces though. The most disappointing part was the egg; it had appeared to be quite runny, with the egg white barely cooked, but alas, the egg yolk was overcooked 😦
Their signature donuts (splashed all over IG), when eaten while hot, was quite delicious!
The salted egg dip was actually custard with salted egg, and tasted exactly like the fillings of salted egg custard buns (流沙包), and was more custard than salted egg. The overall combination was quite nice.
The coffee here was not bad, but the one hubby had at Wimbly Lu Chocolates yesterday was much better.
I’m not so sure if the lemongrass drink was really homemade; it was alright with a slight hint of lemongrass.
Note that all prices are nett (no GST or service charge) and they don’t take reservations.
