What is Fika you ask? Fika is a concept in Swedish (and Finnish) culture with the basic meaning “to have coffee”, often accompanied with pastries, cookies or pie. Yes, Fika do sure sound like our thing and what we love doing!
We had the Chicken Katsu Bao ($16), one of Fika on Brix’s popular dishes. The chicken katsu bao comprised of two servings of panko crumbed chicken fillet sandwiched in steamed bao buns, sriracha mayo, slaw, lotus chips, garnished with fresh cut chillies and coriander. The bao itself was soft and fluffy complementing well with the crispy and tender panko crumbed chicken fillet. There’s even a hint of spice from the cut chillies and sriracha mayo, giving it a spice kick to the chicken katsu bao.
We also shared a Brioche French Toast ($17) which consists of two thick slices of golden brioche french toast with Fika on Brix’s famous black sesame custard, fresh strawberries, lemon curd and house made granola nut crumble. When it arrived on the table, it just looked too pretty to eat! I like how the black sesame custard gave a touch of asian flavours to the french toast. The french toast was deliciously soft and the sweetness was balanced out well.
To complement our brunch, we had an iced coffee and latte. The iced coffee was refreshing with a strong coffee kick. Perfect for a warm summer day!
Overall, both of us had a really enjoyable dining experience at Fika on Brix. If you are in the area, don’t forget to drop by Fika on Brix to get your coffee or brunch fix!
