Located at Suntec City Mall, Fat Chap (肥仔) is a brand new Asian dining concept which offers an extensive variety of distinctively Asian dishes, coupled with a unique selection of cocktails. The food served flaunt rich bold flavours and full-bodied spices, perfect for spice and Asian food lovers! With a live charcoal grill station near the entrance of the restaurant, diners can watch the whole fish and meat skewers smoke and sizzle away or cocktails shakened and stirred at the eight-meter long open bar.
Pulled Chicken 3.5/5
The Pulled Chicken ($14) features tender chicken shreds tossed in Szechuan dressing, peanut and bean sprouts. It is a refreshing appetizer with a hint of spice fragrance.
Crispy Pig’s Ear 3.8/5
The Crispy Pig’s Ear ($12) is a crispy fried snack, coated with a special homemade curry powder mix. Exuding a spice aroma that is not too overwhelmingly spicy, the pig's ears are flavourful and crunchy. It also comes with lime and a small dish of achar to add some acidity to cut the fats.
Crispy Chicken Skin 3.5/5
The Crispy Chicken Skin ($8) though a tad blend on its own, was crunchy and addictive. Dip into the sweet plum chilli sauce to add on some flavour oomph.
“Bakmie” Goreng 4/5
The “Bakmie” Goreng ($15) comes with crispy prawn crackers, squid, achar and a sunny side up egg sitting atop. The fried goreng noodles are not too oily. Turn up the heat a few notches by pairing the dish with the sambal chilli provided, perfect for if you like your food spicy.
Oxtail Soup 3.8/5
Indulge in the robust and flavourful bowl of Oxtail Soup ($20) which is best enjoyed with a bowl fragrant jasmine rice. The dish also comes with homemade green chilli sauce, kicap manis, and slice of lime wedge to add depths to the soup.
Asam Pedas 3.5/5
A warm comforting dish, the Asam Fish ($19) has a tender texture which easily falls aparts and exudes a nonya flavour, which is not too overwhelmingly spicy.
Topped with okra, scallion, garlic and chilli, the Eggplant ($8) has a soft chewy texture and the combination of flavorous toppings works well on the palate.
Land and Sea Party 4.2/5
With a selection of meats on this shared platter, the Land and Sea Party ($168) is a great choice when it comes to group dining (4-5 pax). It consists of Balinese half pork rib, kampong half chicken, marinated fish, squid, ocean beef ribeye, lamb ribs with Balinese sea salt, yuzu kosho, duo sambal, lemongrass & shallot relish, lime, fresh vegetables, grilled corn on cob. My favourite got to be the well-seasoned beef ribeye which has a good ratio of juicy fats and tender meat. For these quality ingredients, this sharing platter is definitely value for money.
End the meal on a sweet note with the Klapertart ($12) which features rum & raisin flavoured ice cream sitting atop a smooth and fragrant coconut custard. While I feel the rum & raisin might too strong and overwhelmed the dish, it is perfect if you want a stronger alcoholic taste for your desserts.
Thai Milk Pudding 4.2/5
The Thai Milk Pudding ($12) has a distinct thai tea fragrance and the complimenting elements of azuki beans and lychee add another sweetness dimension to the silky smooth pudding.
Serving unpretentious Asian delights, the Chef at this Asian casual-dining venture carries out his unqiue take on local favourites, and offers unique modern twists to the familiar asian flavours to curate dishes that is heartwarming and satisfying to the locals.
