Fun Eats @ The Fat Cat

20140402_202800(**2015 update: The Fat Cat has now been replaced by Bar Bar Black Sheep. Check out my review of the new eatery at https://musingsonthem49.wordpress.com/2015/03/19/fat-cat-now-a-black-sheep-hv/)…

Always nice to see new eating places springing up at Holland Village and The Fat Cat is one of them. Semi-hidden on the “quiet side” of the popular heartland hotspot (read: Paris Silk/Famous Laksa/Subway side) namely Lorong Liput, the modern diner has a cool menu: it’s split into three categories – Thai. Western and Indian.

To say we were spoilt for choice was an understatement. As there were only two of us, we decided to go for a starter from each category. From Western, we ordered Truffle Fries ($6); from Thai, we opted for Crispy Pork Ribs ($12); and from Indian, we had Mantra Wings ($8) and an order of Kashmin Naan ($13) as the base food. Happy hours – called Purrfect Hours here – was till 8 and beer prices were good ($10-$12) but so was the wine – for certain dishes you order, you get 15% off housepours so we went for the latter.
20140402_202328Glad we ordered the Truffle Fries – it was super good! One of the best I’ve tasted. Simple and unpretentious yet the delicious taste and crispiness makes it so truly finger-licking good. The Thai Crispy Pork Ribs, though generous with about six huge pieces, were a disappointment as it was a tad tough and dry, and even the Thai chili sauce provided with it hardly add any kick to it.
20140402_202700Thankfully, the Mantra Wings compensated much for the ribs. Spicy and crispy, we could have ordered two portions and be very happy! The Kashmin Naan (below) was also a great choice too – its sweet fruity filling makes you feel like you are eating a fruit cake crepe! So good you can eat it on its own really…

Including wine, the appetitiser meal only came up to $60++ for two persons. Decent for a place that might just make a fat cat out of you (if you aren’t already one)!
