Smoke & Fire

February 23, 2011

A few steps away from Sage and Gsix, this spacious club underscores Mid Valley's valiant struggle to nurture a nightlife.

Customers can groove indoors to a band that warbles '80s hits _ or better yet, linger outside at an alfresco area that's less crowded and noisy.

A wide-ranging snack menu here includes duck breast skewers. Chunky but chewy.

Baby octopus skewer. Not too rubbery, but stick to the Japanese outlets for superior versions.

Hot tapas include grilled sardines with olive oil. A bit too salty to appreciate.

Pizza Margherita, topped simply with cheese, tomato & fresh basil. A surefire stomach-filler, but less satisfying than what many Italian restaurants offer.

Vietnamese seafood spring rolls. With supper served until 1.30 a.m., this might be a worthwhile option for anyone who wants to munch in the mall after a late movie.

Chicken porridge. Wrapping up on a positive note: creamy and not too bland.

Lychee Bellini & Gapplelito (apple juice) champagne cocktails.

Brandy Alexander & Around The World.

Smoke & Fire,
The Gardens, Mid Valley.
