[Media Invitation] New restaurant FYR presents modern European grilled meats

Was invited to a media tasting: New restaurant FYR presents modern European grilled meats at 19 Boon Tat Street last Wednesday Evening! I liked the interior design of this restaurant!

Introducing  the  newest  casual  dining  restaurant in central  business district, FYR Cycene Ond Drinc (pronounced as FIRE Kitchen And Drink)! Against the backdrop of Chinatown’s historic allure, FYR promises an intriguing experience that harks back to a simpler time. Rustic  décor  and  storied  wall  murals  lend  the  restaurant  a  distinct  olden-day  charm. Even  its moniker is as old as time — it is the etymology of fire.

Baked Half Bone Marrow
These delectable half bone marrows come with veal sweetbreads and are spiked by the exotic tastes of Thai basil and Asian spices. 

I have to agree that it certainly goes well with the toast!

Baked Freshly-Shucked Oysters
Noble sweet paprika, roasted garlic, chilli padi, spring onion and calamansi all lend a distinctive quality to the fresh and succulent oysters. 

Honestly, I am not a Oyster lover but the combination of the mentioned ingredients certainly bring this dish to its name. I liked it pretty much though the oyster of each is pretty small.

Baked Aubergine & Chickpea Ragout 
The chewy eggplants and chickenpea stew marry well with the refreshing miso and béchamel. Parmesan is added for that extra oomph.

This tasted slightly bitter for my taste bud but for its texture I thought that it was pretty nicely done.

Seafood linguine
Tossed with al dente pasta is a potpourri of seafood ingredients as well as lobster bisque, laksa leaves and Thai basil. 

This dish is definitely one of my favourite during the tasting session! 
Nice texture of its linguine was presented with a not too flavourful taste.

Spiced Deboned Red Snapper with Sambal Belacan
This is a fiery offering that will satisfy the hankerings of those who love spicy food. The sambal belacan lends a zest to the fish’s nutty taste. 

Grain-fed  US  Holstein  Cow  Ribeye  365  Days 
This  glorious  slab  of  ribeye,  cooked  to perfection, comes with house salad with java curry dressing and a choice of either buttered cassava or mashed potato.

The texture of its meat was pretty well done and juicy though it may appear rather oily. 
I liked the sauce provided which goes well with the Ribeye. 

Whole Maine Lobster 
This  gigantic  lobster,  sprawled  across  the  plate,  is  bound  to  turn heads.  The  aroma  of  the  shallot  lemongrass  béchamel  will  also  waft  through  the  air  and  whet appetites. 

It tasted pretty good! I liked how this dish was being prepared and well-presented. However, it could have been better if its texture was less chewy. 

Five-spice Half Chicken, Striploin, Asian-spiced Tiger Prawn
Get the best of three worlds with  this  mammoth  sharing  plate.  Relish  the  succulent  chicken, indulge  in  the  thick  but  tender striploin and savour the juicy prawn. It comes with house salad with java curry dressing and a choice of either buttered cassava or mashed potato.

I liked the chicken as it was well-marinated with tender texture! 

Seafood Saffron Risotto

This tasted too.. tomatoey for me. It could have been better they go easy on that area.

Baked Pistachio Melt & Pandan Ice Cream 
The combination of Pistachio flavoured lava cake and homemade pandan ice cream with a tinge of sweet cinnamon makes this indulgent dessert a tour de force.

Moist and tasted rather classic on its own. However, it was tad sweet and flavourful for me. If you have a sweet tooth, you will certainly enjoy this dessert!
