Fuego Singapore is right on Club Street and is a very cool spot to enjoy some quality fusion fare. The restaurant itself is spacious and stylish and the menu consists of big and little plates that are sure to hit the spot. Fuego Singapore offers tapas redefined – think corned beef croquettes and cauliflower steak – as well as big slabs of premium meat straight from the grill. Of everything, we’re particular fans of the seafood moqueca consisting of snapper, brown clams, mussels, stuffed habaneros and Brazilian rice. Telok Ayer is the closest MRT and it’s best to head to Fuego Singapore on Gemmill Lane armed with an advanced reservation.
Fuego Singapore on Gemmill Lane is good for groups of any size owing to the fact that it’s home to a pretty open dining space but is one that still feels cosy. It’s a balance that’s sometimes hard to find, but Fuego gets it right. Add to that a very pleasant welcome from the staff and some of the best fusion food we know of in the area and it’s not hard to understand why Fuego is a Club Street favourite. A good idea is to have a one or two drinks first – the bar at Fuego is well-stocked and creative – then order up a few little plates to share around the table as Fuego’s tapas is top notch.
Aside from tapas, the bigger plates at Fuego Singapore are also meant to be shared. Big slabs of meat come to your table straight from the grill and are meant to serve between 2-3 hungry folk. The whole sea bream (+750g in weight) is magnificent, served with smoked paprika chimichurri and lemon aioli, while the lamb shoulder with a green pepper rub, oregano and a vibrant jackfruit salsa is something completely unique. There’s no place to dine on Club Street or indeed in Telok Ayer that’s quite like Fuego. What are you waiting for?
