I'm loving the black and white decor inside!
On to the food, the menu is simple. There's a list of special burger combinations to choose from or if you're feeling adventurous, why not create one for yourself? We didn't want to end up with a so-so burger and regret it later on so we trusted the burger experts and went for the Specialty Burgers.
When our burger arrived, the first thing that I noticed was that white glob that's spilling out from the burger. "What's that?!" I asked Paul. Initially we thought it was the melted cheese but after trying it, we realized that it was mayonnaise! For the record, yes we don't mind having mayonnaise but this was a mayonnaise explosion! Looks like the burger chef went mayo happy in the kitchen. I had to scrape a good amount off as it was just too much for us. Ugh, this was a bit of a turn off. :(
Moving on to the burger patty, it was tender and well cooked. A bit on the dry side as there's no way to cook pork medium well or rare. We hardly spotted the bacon which was said to be stuffed in the patty. Over-all the burger was just okay. Nothing spectacular about it save for the yummy sweet taste of the pineapple and caramelized onions combined.
Meanwhile, O tried The Elvis (S$11) which was an interesting mix of bacon stuffed pork burger with grilled bananas and creamy peanut butter. I got to hand it to O who was adventurous enough to try such a unique combination. He's a big fan of peanut butter so he quickly zeroed in on this the moment he read it on the menu. According to him, this is an upgrade of our childhood favorite -- Peanut Butter Sandwich. It's for those who are fans of sweet-salty food combinations.
Aside from their burgers, they also have milkshakes and a variety of side dishes too. So, will I give go back to Fat Boy's? Maybe. Perhaps next time I'll be brave and put together my own burger creation.
