FIKA Swedish Cafe & Bistro

It actually took me quite some time to locate a Halal Cafe... When I finally found one, the anxiousness finally took a downturn! Didn't knew Halal Cafe is pretty limited in Singapore.

Located in the area of the popular "Haji Lane", FIKA Swedish Cafe & Bistro is visible along beach road, junction of Arab Street and Beach Road.





First floor seems crowded to host a big group, thus we went to the upper level. So much cozier and and spacious!

Soup: Soup of the Day ($6.90).



Mains: Grilled Chicken Crepe ($17.50) with cheese, sesame mayo and tomatoes topped with alfalfa.



Mains: Tunnbrodsrulle ($18.90). Classic Swedish thin bread roll with mashed potatoes, grilled sausage, fried shallots, homemade bostongurka and tomato/chili sauce.

Similar to a wrap, and I love how firm and yet squishy the sausage is when I bite through it!





Mains: Pannbiff ($19.90). Swedish homemade beef patties served with homemade cream sauce, mashed potatoes, sauteed onions and lingonberry jam.



Mains: Steak with Warm Potatosalad ($25.90). Juicy ribeye steak served with sauteed potatoes and tomatoes topped with garlic butter, chopped basil and onions.

My friend requested for rare-cooked, but was told that they only served medium-rare. Well.. better than nothing right? But it came still a little overcooked than the usual medium-rare we had at other places..



Mains: Seafood Pasta ($24.90), consisting of mussels, doryfish, squid and tiger prawn cooked in a choice of cream sauce/tomato base or aglio style.



Mains: Swedish Homemade Meatballs ($19.50). Meatballs served with homemade creamy sauce, parsley potatoes and lingonberry jam.

This is one of their signature item, and is definitely better than those sold in IKEA. Not convinced? Tried in yourself!



Openface Sandwiches: Shrimp and Egg Openface ($18.50). Comes with Tekaka bread, lettuce, mayonnaise, egg, Swedish freshwater shrimps, fresh dill and lemon slice.

Basically a chilled dish that wasn't really my type for a main.



This place is truly cozy enough to host large groups, or even parties I suppose! Food is generally delicious, and yellow ambiance to create a soft lighting on the interior decorations :)

They have 2 levels, but the 2nd floor seems more spacious and warming, whilst the 1st floor is a little squeezy and less cozy in comparison. With their 2nd outlet in Millenia Walk, it also makes FIKA more accessible to wider range of people who frequent the town :)

Would I visit FIKA again? Couldn't find a reason not to!

  1. I always walked passed the place but I have never known they have a 2nd level. I avoided it thinking that they are full!
