Food Review: Media Tasting at FYR Cycene Ond Drinc

Boon Tat Street
For peeps who are working around Boon Tat Street, I think some of you may have noticed FYR Cycene Ond Drinc opening its door about 2 months back. But are you as clueless as me on the pronunciation of the name of this restaurant. Well, it is pronounced as “Fire Kitchen and Drink”. I got to know it during the media tasting. 🙂

Boon Tat Street
As you walk into the restaurant you will be greeted with rustic decor and interesting wall murals that illustrated how cavemen start their fire.

Grilled Pineapple Juice ($4.50)

We started the tasting with a round of drinks. The Grilled Pineapple juice has an unique smoky and earthy taste that I could not really put words to it. I guess it is quite an acquired taste as some people like it, some people don’t.

Boon Tat Street
Apple Rosemary ($4.50)

The Apple Rosemary is a refreshing concoction of apple juice, fresh rosemary and infused lemon syrup.

Boon Tat Street
Hibiscus Mint ($4.50) & Ginger Lemongrass ($4.50)
Among FYR’s special concoctions, I like the ginger lemongrass the most. It is made with lemon tea, fresh ginger and lemongrass. The Hibiscus Mint is a blend of hibiscus tea, fresh apple juice and infused mint syrup.

Baked Freshly Shucked Oysters ($15) & Baked Half  Bone Marrow ($15)
One of my favourite dish of the night is the baked freshly shucked oysters. Topped with sweet paprika, roasted garlic, chilli padi, spring onion and calamansi juice, it is a very refreshing way to taste those succulent oysters.
The baked half bone marrow is a quite a delightful item as it is cut into half. It saves me the trouble to “suck” out the marrow.

Baked Aubergine & Chickpea Ragout ($10)
Boon Tat Street

Another of my favourite of the night is the mashed potato. The one that was served to my table was buttery and creamy. However the group beside me wasn’t as lucky, theirs was slightly over – seasoned.

Spiced Deboned Red Snapper with Sambal Belacan ($25)
Grain- fed US Holstein Cow Ribeye 365 Days ($32)
Five-spice Half Chicken, Striploin, Asian-spiced Tiger Prawn ($55)
Whole Maine Lobster ($35)
Equipped with Josper Charcoal Oven, a beautiful creation of grill and oven in one machine, the food is supposedly more juicy and moist. We savour from meat to seafood cooked atop on lychee wood. The beauty of using lychee wood is it gives the food a beautiful smoky taste.
Seafood Linguine ($18)
Seafood Saffron Risotto ($48)
If you are a carb person, there are also risotto and pasta available. 🙂
Baked Pistachio Melt & Pandan Ice Cream ($10)
This is one dish that I have been looking forward to as I heard many good reviews. I like the pandan aroma in the ice cream but it would be perfect if it doesn’t melt as fast.
FYR serves unique European cuisine with Asian influence. Although there are some hits and misses, for a new establishment, I think it is forgivable. Recently, I have heard a friend raving about FYR’s food. Perhaps it is about time that I revisit FYR.
