You know a restaurant is going to be good when it is committed to serving food fresh all the way. At Fahrenheit 600, that’s exactly what they’re doing to ensure quality food arrives at your table hot and fresh for maximum flavour.
The name Fahrenheit 600 is an interesting one and the owners were glad to share the story behind it. It’s simply because most of the dishes served here such as pizza, pasta, toast and sandwich are baked in an imported brick oven at 600 degrees consistently.
Now, you don’t have an excuse to skip breakfast with Fahrenheit 600’s all day breakfast selection. There are six items in the recently revamped menu, most of them feature all the usual suspects: egg, bread and mushroom.
For something a little different, I’d suggest having the Giggly Duck @ RM22.90, which is basically a bread dish that’s topped with a myriad of goodness, including smoked duck slices, sautéed mushrooms, poached egg and drizzled with grape juice reduction.
And instead of butter, the bread is spread with a creamy avocado paste for that extra healthy kick. What really pleased me was the fact that the smoked duck was moist and savoury but not overly salty.
Even though I am not really a big fan of baked beans, the Auntie Joanna’s Baked Egg @ RM18.90 is delicious enough to keep me digging in. If you think it tasted similar to pizza, you’re not entirely wrong because it uses Fahrenheit 600’s signature Napolitana sauce, cheese, real home-made chicken sausage (not store bought) and you’re having it with a small loaf of bread – which what pizza essentially is anyway. Simple but beautifully presented, this wholesome and hearty dish is great to enjoy at any time of the day.
Next up, the pasta of the day – Creamy Chili Seafood Fettuccine @ RM29.90 which was a proud creation of their in-house pasta chef. One taste was enough to convince us that we did not go wrong by ordering this.
If you ask me, there’s really nothing fancy about this dish. It was simply a good, honest tasting pasta that was perfectly cooked in a rich and wonderful cream sauce and topped with some of the freshest seafood around. Among the handful of dishes we had, this was the one I liked the most.
As for the pizzas, Fahrenheit 600 does not pander to any designation whether it’s American or Italian, it’s all artisan style here. One of the best selling pizzas here is the Popeye The Sailor @ RM24.90 (9 inch, RM28.90 for 12 inch) and the name should give you a good idea of its main topping – spinach. While it might sound a little far fetched, spinach pizza is nothing new, maybe just a little uncommon for Malaysians.
Anyway, there’s nothing to fault with the pizza, as the base had the right thickness with a delicious crust at its edges. Spinach aside, other toppings included egg, cream sauce, caramelized onions, garlic and mascarpone cheese. All of them worked well together and the spinach actually tasted really good.
For those meat lovers out there such as myself who’re interested to give this a try but want to play it safe, a non-vegetarian version (with chicken breast) of Popeye The Sailor is also available – albeit at a slightly higher price.
For desserts, Fahrenheit 600 serves a range of cakes, all hand-baked and in-house by their pastry chef who comes in everyday as early as 5am. We managed to sample a few like the Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel Cheese Cake, both priced at RM11.90 a slice. They are nice and satisfying but wouldn’t blow you away.
Coffee is worth a mention here which is expertly prepared by Brass Boiler located at the back of the restaurant. I am not going into detail about the coffee, but do know that their ice drip coffee @ RM12.90 takes at least 2 days to prepare since the brewer has a drip speed of 1 drip every 1.5 seconds. The result is a chilled, fine yet concentrated coffee that packs a punch – great as a pairing to all the savoury food served here.
Weekdays lunch specials at are available between 12pm and 3pm and they don’t burn a hole in your pocket. For RM19.90 you get an entrée, a drink and a dessert which is a truly good deal considering the location.
