Food Review: Fi Woodfire Thai Robertson at 11 Unity St, #01-07, Singapore 237995

I recently checked out the new Fi Woodfire Thai Robertson restaurant along the hip Robertson Quay stretch. This modern Thai spot serves up creative woodfire-cooked Thai cuisine with smoky wok hei flavours that did not disappoint.

It's located at the perennial drinking spot of 11 Unity Street facing the road, right beside Wine Connection (where the taxi/car drop off is).

The restaurant has a trendy industrial-chic vibe and a long bar for people to have cocktails at. I appreciated that the restaurant does not smell like smoke or food!

The seating area is great for big groups and gatherings.

Here's the menu.
Drink menu is also a mix of local Thai classics and creative cocktails.

I got one of such, the Sabai ($18), which featured Mekong Rum. A twist on the Mojito, which turned out to be super intriguing.

We kicked things off with the Charred Corn Som Tam (S$14) - a creative twist on the classic Thai green papaya salad. The charred corn added a delightful smoky note that complemented the zesty dressing beautifully. We both could not stop eating it because it was so appetising. A fantastic start to whet the appetite! 4.5/5

Next up was the Basil Minced Pork on Charred Eggplant (S$18). The smoky charred eggplant worked amazingly well as the base to soak up the punch of flavours from the basil and savoury minced pork. There was also such a generous heaping of the minced pork! Simple but so satisfying! 4.5/5

For mains, we tried the French Poulet (S$28) - an almost-deboned whole chicken that's smoked to perfection over the woodfire. The chicken was incredibly juicy and the smoke added an incredible depth of flavour that typical roast chickens lack. I was super surprised by how it tasted and can confidently recommend this! 4/5

We also got the Seafood Pad Thai (S$18) to balance things out. Unfortunately it was too salty that night to be really enjoyable. However we gave feedback so hopefully they will adjust the taste! I think also because we Singaporeans are not as used to the heavy flavours. The seafood ingredients in this was super generous though and the entire plate can be shared between two. 2.5/5

The "Moo Ping" Smoked Pork Ribs (S$42) was the other amazing main. The giant meaty ribs were smothered in a sweet, tangy, lightly spiced glaze that got nicely caramelised over the fire. Ridiculously tender, fall-off-bone and finger-licking good! If you like the street food satay that they call Moo Ping as much as I do, this is a MUST-TRY 4.5/5

We ended the night with this super light and refreshing Lemongrass Jelly (S$12) with some blue pea and dragonfruit bits.

Overall, Fi Woodfire Thai Robertson is a awesome addition to the Singapore-Thai food scene, breathing new life into traditional flavours with brilliant woodfire cooking techniques. While the smokey flavours were not as intense as it could have been, I appreciated the twist it gave to typical Thai food and think it is a great dining option in that area.
