Operating as a poolside cafe, FIX Cafe is situated right beside the pool within the clubhouse, with a view facing the pool and replaces a Seafood restaurant that used to occupy the same area. As such, the cafe is also open-concept; forget about air-condition here, just fans to keep you cool from the hot weather outside. The signature dishes here are the Naanwiches; a unique fusion concept by putting the Indian Naan toegther with various cuisines, though other mains are also available. There are also a number of sides and desserts such as cake and puffs available, and there are also set meals where you can pair up certain selections of the menu for a discount as well.
For our main, we decided to share the Chicken Tikka Naanwich ($10.00). Probably the most authentic Naanwich amongst the menu, the Chicken Tikka was marinated deeply full of flavour, and smothered with more sauce that invoked a mild spiciness that was able to fire up its flavour. Inside the wrap were vegetables such as red and green peppers, as well as cucumbers. The inclusion of the vegetables helped made it feel rather authentic as it replicated the Chicken Tikka skewers which comes with the same vegetables and also induced a refreshing crunch which breaks the spiciness of the Naanwich.
There were a wide selection of cakes available; all of which sounded interesting, but we eventually chose the only puff in the display. As interesting as it sounds, the Butterscotch Arabica Choux ($6.00) was a Choux Puff sliced apart, topped with coffee cream in the middle which was made from Arabica coffee beans and the Choux pastry at the bottom stuffed with not only Butterscotch, but also a thick Chocolate Ganache. The crusty Choux pastry went well with the bittersweet flavour of the fillings; all of which invoked their own dimensions of the various flavours they carried. It was one dessert we just could not stop laying our forks on, and we reckoned that this would be one dessert that would definitely go well with coffee for a leisure tea break.
We were being told that the coffee here is a “Mocha” blend that is roasted by a local roaster. The Flat White ($4.50) I had felt rather milky, though the sweet chocolatey notes could still be made out; somewhat a waste as it had a pretty interesting flavour profile. An extra shot could be added for those who prefer stronger coffee, though that would come at an additional cost of $1.00.
