It has been really long since I visited JOM at Balestier and it was a surprise to find out that a popular cafe is located there. FIX, which is famous for its donut with salted egg dip, has recently added a ‘grill’ extension to its cafe. To get to FIX Grill, just walk through the cafe to get the the air-conditioned restaurant at the end.
I love the fixtures at FIX Grill, from the iconic signage to the chairs stamped with ‘FIX’ at the back.
The great thing about dining at FIX Grill is that you get to enjoy both menus of FIX and FIX Grill; the latter being unavailable if you were to dine at FIX.
Mexican Coca Cola ($4.50). Interesting but I still prefer the original Coca Cola! This does not have the kick that the original one does.
Ginger and Lime Soda ($5.50). Fresh ginger slices, ginger syrup and calamansi in soda water. Even though I do not like ginger, this one is bearable. The calamansi taste is quite strong and makes up for the (unpleasant) ginger flavour.
Strawberry and Sweet Basil Soda ($5.50). Fresh strawberries and sweet basil leaves in soda water.
Beef Chilli Cheese Fries ($8). Came piping hot! This would be better if they were more generous with the chilli.
Salmon with Wild Rice ($19). Pan-seared salmon on wild rice and romesco sauce. A healthier option!
Slow Roasted Chicken ($19). Half chicken, brined and slow-roasted with porcini cream sauce, sauteed kale, corn and potato chips. Almost all major food groups in one dish!
Ribeye Steak ($22). 220gm of grass-fed ribeye steak, grilled to desired doneness in porcini cream sauce and sauteed kale. Honestly, as a lover of steaks, this is only so-so.
I forgot to take note of the names of the desserts, but the second one is a must-try! The hidden butterscotch centre in the choux pastry is a delight!
The best for the last. The famous Donut with Salted Egg Dip ($6). This dish is synonymous with FIX and it is no wonder why everyone who visits this cafe have to try this.
This dinner was a early birthday celebration for me by my close friends. Special mention to these AWESOME people: (from left) Nadia, Mou, Pauline and Serene. Missing Rakeezah who was sick that day.
