Regardless of the weather, the temperature at this al fresco eatery is always 'muy perfecto'
Fuego has the appearance and style of an upscale restaurant concept – its biggest draws are the breathtaking view of the Twin Towers and its comprehensive wine list. Food is centred around tapas and sharing plates, dancing to rhythms that are South American. The menu may be a bit of a surprise to those unaccustomed to food from this region – who knew there were so many kinds of guacamole? And is tiger’s milk really what we think it is? But go with an open mind and stomach, and you’ll have a great time. The churros, a staple on the menu since 2014, are an all-time favourite, best reserved for after meals – or before. The presence of pineapple ancho dressing adds a welcome zest to the snapper ceviche, and the grilled watermelon is an acquired, but ultimately satisfying, taste. Pair any of these with the Fuego Mojitos, or with a sweet dessert. Service here is brisk.
ON THE PASS
Fuego chef Shaun Lazaroo cites his mother’s Chinese and Kristang cooking as a major influence on his love of good food. He chose culinary school over college, believing it to be an easy way out from studying. Fortunately, he discovered a passion for the kitchen and later became an accomplished chef.
