Overlooking KL’s glittering skyline from the stunning Troika building is a slice of Latin fun, Fuego. Part of Troika Sky Dining, Fuego (or fire in Spanish) focuses on exotic South American flavours. Here, patrons are treated to visually spectacular delicacies such as smoked snails in a jar, smoked quail eggs, grilled watermelon, and soft shell crab nachos. Heartier appetites will appreciate the restaurant’s embrace of grilled meats. Served on a wooden slab, these add a rustic and robust element to the menu. Fuego also elevates the simple avocado to world class levels, courtesy of a team that focuses on guacamole alone and produces five different recipes.
The ordinary is never on the menu in Fuego as even the cocktails are modern innovative twists on classics. With witty presentations and clever flavour combinations, cocktails at Fuego are showstoppers. A liberal helping of rum and tequila runs throughout the drinks menu, and recent creations have included the sublime Rum Rhapsody (rum, pineapple, secret P7 syrup, and Valrhona dulcey cremeux) and the refreshing Reversed Pina Colada (with rum,m, pineapple syrup,p, coconut water
Eating & Drinking 2015/2016 and almond bitters).
The comfortable and stylish bar with its industrial details and talavera tiles, which reflect Fuego's Latin American vibe, is the perfect spot to enjoy a catch up with friends as its stimulating cuisine is perfect for sharing. Fuego transports even the most unimaginative of diners deep into the heavenly depths of South America, one bite and one sip at a time.
