Fiercer by Fierce Curry House @ Solaris Dutamas

It's a fine week to be Fierce: KL's biryani professionals have unveiled their new outpost, Fiercer, a relatively upscale interpretation of their Bangsar curry house.


 Fiercer retains its big brother's friendly casualness, transplanted into a modern restaurant-bar setting that suits its Solaris Dutamas surroundings, with strains of "Besame Mucho" playing on the speakers.


The menu's limited at this early, soft-opening stage, comprising mainly the classics ...


 ... a variety of Hyderabadi Dum biryani that taste as terrific as Fierce's originals ...


... packing plenty of potent flavor, heat & moisture to be unlocked beneath a doughy swaddle in custom-made steel bowls.


 Mutton's probably our favorite (RM22+, with mixed raita, pickled veggie acar & gravy), thanks to the robust punch of the tender meat that layers the rice ...


 ... though chicken (RM20+) is certainly no slouch in supplying satisfaction ...


 ... while fish (RM20+) furnishes fragrance, not foulness ...


 ... & a vegetarian-appropriate rendition (RM14+) brims with bean curd for Meatless Mondays.


 It's likely that Fierce's premium biryani _ lobster, scallops, crab & more _ will become available later, along with a wider range of other food & beverages.


 What makes us giddy with glee: Wine's offered at Fiercer, costing RM20+ per glass.


 Nice start for Fiercer; will there be a Fiercest eventually? We sure hope so.
