Fatboy's Burger Bar, Publika

When it first opened, I thought Fatboy's was a milkshake bar, with its black and white patchy cow interior. I'd walk past it en route to The Bee and as the weeks went by, I noticed that there would always be a line or a small crowd waiting to be seated - a sign that Fat Boy's was slowly catching on. I was intrigued - it was about time I gave the place a go.

The day after the 16 year old's celebratory dinner at The Bee, we decided to go further down that burger-laden path and head to Fatboy's for dinner (because really, nothing appeals to a teenage boy more than a burger joint and one called Fatboy's, no less).

Jamaican Me Hungry - jerk seasoned bacon stuffed pork patty (don't you just love the sound of that already?) topped with sundried tomatoes, bacon, coleslaw and mayonaise on a sesame seed bun. This was the brother's choice and he loved the sundried tomato-coleslaw combo.

The first thing on the menu, the Fat Basterd - two beef patties, bacon, cheddar cheese, a fried egg and some Fatboy's sauce on a sesame bun. This monster of a burger is one for those monster appetites, definitely not for the fainthearted.

Fatboy's also gives customers the option of building their own burgers (the most fun bit, if you ask me) and this is what I'd like to call the Tastebud-talk Special - pork, grilled bananas and curry remoulade on a honey oat bun. They make burger building a straightforward process and with a good variety of toppings to choose from, it's pretty easy to build that burger you've always been dreaming of. It was perhaps the pork patty on this burger that sold it for me - pork patties are not easy to come by, for one, and this was thick, juicy and had just the right amount of flavour.

Fatboy's also has a selection of sides to complete the meal - we found the chilli cheese fries to be quite addictive. I've been told that the milkshakes are quite yummy as well. Service is friendly and efficient, the outlet has the nice background hum of people having a good time over their burgers and with prices far more reasonable than some other places I know, Fatboy's is a keeper.

    1. Thanks! Being able to personalise your burger is such good fun

  2. If I remembered properly, there's also one interesting burger with peanut butter. Did u see it in the menu? -Raymond

    1. Ohh yes, I think I saw that on the menu - the Elvis or something like that. Ah Elvis and his crazy food ideas, I guess even those transcend time.
