Regardless of the weather, the temperature at this al fresco eatery is always 'muy perfecto'

Tatler Says

To serve pork-free fare at Fuego is truly a trial by fire, especially when pork forms the cornerstone of most South American cuisines. Nevertheless, what Fuego lacks it makes up for in other ways. As the popular proverb goes, “Limitations breed creativity.” A case in point, the Super Spicy Guacamole (don’t say you weren’t warned) is amped up by local bird’s eye chilis and served with vegetable chips, making for a truly enjoyable version of the Mexican dip. From Angus Beef Back Ribs to Whole Seabream, Fuego’s mains mostly revolve around the plancha, so it’s a bit of a shame that the flat-top grill is hidden away instead of serving as a centre piece of the restaurant. But perhaps the idea is not to distract customers from the real money-maker: the twinkling lights of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline at dusk. Regardless of the weather, the temperature at this al fresco eatery is always muy perfecto.

TATLER TIP

Supper or late dinners are the norm in most Spanish-speaking countries, hence the return of Fuego’s supper sessions, which start at 10.30pm.
