Fat Boy Kitchen

We didn’t want to wait in a massive line across the street so we decided to try Fat Boy Kitchen. They’re a HK cafe spot a few doors down from TM Vietnamese Food and Elephant’s Kitchen.

We dropped in on a busy Friday (around noon). We added our name to the waitlist; took about 15 minutes for a table to open up. What I didn’t like is that they give you cheap, plastic cutlery to use when dining in.

Two menus; one for all day breakfast options.

The other for noodle soup, sandwiches, snacks and signature dishes.

Two luncheon meat slices with two eggs (A4) ($9.50)
UntitledD added a mini noodle soup ($3.00), opting for the HK style satay beef, along with a HK style milk tea ($1.00).

I was told the broth was bland and they could have given more satay beef.

The milk tea wasn’t flavourful enough. Spam slices were thinner than other HK spots in town. This coming from my friend who is a HK cafe lover.

Beef minute steak with two eggs (A7) ($12.50)
UntitledM also added the same mini noodle soup ($3.00) but opted for the vermicelli noodles.

M had similar comments about the HK style satay beef but he did seem to enjoy the steak.

Singaporean laksa chicken in noodle soup (N) ($14.50)
UntitledChicken, two fish balls, bean sprouts, green onion and rice noodles. The broth lacked any depth or complexity. Calling it a Singaporean style laksa is misleading. A bro that we chatted to while waiting seemed to be a regular and said this was his favourite dish. No clue why.

Don’t quite understand the hype with FBK. Average portions, mediocre flavour.
