Firefly @ KK Times Square
The mission at hand concerns more of the hunt for a perfect sandwich, rather than be sandwiched between sweaty entity in dark dodgy place. And this mission doesn’t require cover charge nor overpriced liquor, although a big appetite is a prerequisite.
If Hardrock is legendary for their big tasty burger (for those in the dark, McD serves kiddie burgers but advertises it as if they have the biggest burger in BigMac). Then in the absence of a place where its namesake is often confused between a music genre of geological science, Firefly duly deserves that recognition. At least within the shores of KK.
This is because if taken as a whole package, Firefly does ring out some good tunes (I’ve been told) while having a damn good nip at the same time(the only place that serves Hoegaarden). And all these while still serving a good piece of sandwich (hence Hardrock was taken as a comparison)
There are 3 choices to opt from : Firefly burger, ham and bacon and grilled chicken (the latter 2 takes on a more club-sandwichy form)
There are also a variety of finger food, of which we chose buffalo wings. Although I was under the impression that these wings are supposed to be coated with spicy sauce after deep frying, but I guess Firefly wants to do it their way. Their version of buffalo wings is deep fried wings in no sauce coating i.e. dried. A bit of disappointment if you’ve had the real buffalo wings before. Although it was spicy, but i would have preferred if the buffalo-styled sauce was all over my face when I'm done. FYI, buffalo owes its moniker from the city of origin, Buffalo, New York, rather than the cow. Lets not have a repeat of Jessica Simpson in “newlyweds” (that MTV show years ago) Fortunately they did not ignore the need for dips, which consist of a soursauce, which had just the right amount of sour tang, albeit too watery to my liking.
My other qualm is that if you are seated outside, you may not get as good a service as you would if seated inside. That is because the waiters are almost seldom outside, so a task of getting the menu or the bill may be better done on your own.
