Fumée @ Millenia Walk

Is it a deli? A restaurant? A bar? One might say that Fumée is all of these. Sandwiches, pasta, meats, beer, whisky, they have it. Located at #01-54 Millenia Walk, the restaurant has the luxury of space. Indoor dining, alfresco or to-go? Up to your preference.

Expect Asian flavours executed with modern European techniques at Fumée, and reasonably priced food and drinks. 

someone mentioned, drinks?
From 1st March till 31st May, Fumée has a 1-for-1 oysters (min. half a dozen) and 1-for-1 all day cocktails promo with UOB cards. Terms and conditions apply. Please enquire with the friendy staff.

The oysters deal sounds good, and definitely something that I'd consider. Especially, when there is a Prosecco promo as well. Heh heh!

no kidding

Alright now, let's see what is on the table for dinner. After a hard day at work, how about some cold beer to cool off? Perhaps some Kronenbourg Blanc and Asahi Black?

Asahi Black and Kronenbourg Blanc @$12++ per pint

With beer, one needs some beer food, or some say starters. How about skinny crispy winglets for munchies, followed by a bowl of plump juicy NZ little neck clams and garlic prawns?

Winglets @$10++
NZ Little Neck Clams @$12++

Garlic Prawns @$12++

Loved the NZ Little Neck Clams to each succulent juicy bits! Yep, best of the lot for its strong flavours, umami jus and the plump-est clams ever. It was unfortunate that the prawns were overcooked that night, as it looked promising.

Next up, we shared two different burgers; wagyu and otak-otak. They were so good. The patty done right and tasted juicy. Actually, a quick scan of its menu revealed that it currently has about 7 permutations of wagyu burgers. Wow. The wagyu burger price ranges from $16 to $29, with Foie-Gras burger being at the top range.

Fish burger? Close, but non, c'est Otak-Otak Burger

Don't feel like having burger, no problem. Fumée has about 5 risotto dishes and an equivalent amount of pasta dishes on its menu currently. Sampled the Mushroom Risotto, the Chili Crab Noodle and the Red Dot Noodle and it pretty much depends on your preference. The Red Dot Noodle is a modern interpretation of the classic Hokkien mee, that is much sought after by their regulars.

Mushroom Risotto (vegetarian) @$16++
Chili Crab Noodles (with soft shell crab) @$19++

Realized that I have no photo to show for the Red Dot Noodle. Am sorry, my dear readers. However, this dish was loaded with Hokkaido scallops, tiger prawns, clams and squids and more akin to aglio-olio. 

The mushroom risotto struck me as a bold flavoured version of the usual mushroom risottos that I had eaten thus far. Strongly seasoned, earthy flavours with hints of truffle oil, and good with a glass of wine or beer. I quite liked the Chili Crab Noodles for its familiarity in taste. A more spicy version can be requested to suit your preference.

For the meatatarians out there, rejoice! Do try the US Angus Short Rib, if you have a party of 2. A good size of 700g USDA certified Angus bone-in short rib. This gorgeous hunk requires 20 minutes of preparation time.

US Angus Short Rib (for 2) @$68++

US Angus Short Rib - sliced

Lovely, tender slices of meat. Almost melt-in-your-mouth kind of good. The mash was flavourful and every forkful was a joy. The 250g of Australian Wagyu Rump Steak for just $25++? Sounds good too!

Fumée has their pastry chef., and she does quite a repertoire of interesting looking/tasting desserts. Guinness cake? A dessert that looks like a cute red apple and is named as "Love Apple"? You can try them at Fumée.

Look what we have in here - creamy green apple nousse and cream cheese on a spiced biscuit crumb yum

The Passion Fruit Panna Cotta (@$7++) had an interesting texture. First time tasting a panna cotta of such texture. If you happen to try it, let me know your thoughts.

Did I mention about whisky at Fumée? Not yet? Let's see some pictures.

Learnt that Auchentoshan Three Wood, is named as the whisky has been matured in three different cask types; American Bourbon, Spanish Oloroso Sherry and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks, resulting in rich, complex flavours.

How do you normally have your whisky? Neat? On the rocks? Or, with Icelandic Glacial water?

All-in-all, Fumée is a nice place to chill, with an impressive selection of whiskies and wines. Food options are adequate with some variety for both meatarians and vegetarians friends. Oh, and there's live music as well, from Tuesdays onwards. Enjoy!
