FIX Cafe Review

The main selling point of this cafe is probably dinning by the pool. Located in NS Hometeam club house, FIX cafe certainly can be easily spotted if you are near the pool.

Recently change in their menu - they turn Mexican!!

Value set lunch at $12.90 (comes with icecream) 
Definitely a good deal not to be missed

Additional soup or drink at $2 each. Check out with the staff on the soup they served for the day.

Beef chili fries $9
Fries with chili con carne and cheese sauce

A must try appetizer. Things won't go wrong with crispy fries and hot cheese sauce. The spicy stew comes with meat bites which you should be eating with the fries!!

Chicken drumlets $8
Crispy chicken drumlets served with a spicy sour cream dip

Dip the crispy fried drummlets with the sour cream sauce... hmmm yummy. I feel that the sauce is abit too spicy to my liking, i refer more on the sour cream instead

Chicken & cheese quesadilla $8
Grilled tortilla filled with chicken and mozzarella, served with guacamole and sour cream

Mushroom / Fish / Chicken Enchiladas 
served in tortilla wraps and cheese with beans, salad, guacamole, sour cream & nacho chips

Fish & chips 
Battered fish fillets served with tartar, side salad and fries

Steak & potatoes additional $5
200g flank steak grilled to desired doneness, served with roasted potatoes and mushroom cream sauce

Chicken pascal additional $2
Braised chicken leg in chipotle tomato sauce, sweet potato mash and mango pico de gallo

Bunuelos & ice-cream $8
Crispy tortilla glazed in gula melaka, served with vanilla ice-cream 
(Melted ice cream i mean, hahaha)

I can't really taste the gula melaka, it more like honey glazed to me, give it a miss i say!!

Donuts with salted egg dip $6
Soft, fluffy donuts served with salted egg dip

Hooray, salted egg dip... i don't think it goes well with donuts. Too much of a hassle to keep dipping into the salted egg dip after every bites. I can't share with my friends!!!

Churros $7
Crispy dough fritters dusted in cinnamon sugar, served with dark chocolate dip

Come on, why chocolate dip?? I prefer nutella dip instead. Churros taste flat, sugar coating does not really help too. Please improve the recipe 

Opening Hours:
11am to 10pm


Verdict 3/5

Certainly a good place to hang out with friends or gathering. The food here taste good but can be better.

Soup Restaurant Lunch Buffet (Hougang Mall Outlet)

One of the 2 soup restaurant outlets that offer lunch/dinner buffer. This is an ala cart buffet which you have to order your food and the staffs will serve you. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the feast. 

Each table of 2-5 pax can order one of the specialty dish. These are the signature dishes from soup restaurant. Choices are Samsui Ginger Chicken, Half steam half fried promfret, Tofu prawns and begger bowl ribs. I have not tried the other 3 dishes except Samsui Ginger Chicken as this is really the best dish out here.

The buffet come with a mini steamboat, Pork ribs and Tripe soup. Pork based broth is mildly peppery with lots of ingredients (corns, pork ribs, tripe, button mushrooms and some wolfberries) and it comes in a pot.

Beside the pot of soup, sides ingredients such as golden mushrooms and vegetables are also served together

Verdict 4/5

Drinks and wet towels are charged. However, they have refillable drink such as chinese tea and chrysanthemum tea. Overall, the food taste good even though it is a buffet. With such price and good food, its sure a miss if you do not try it.
