I've heard how this place was so good and I've finally tried it! The place was a bit small with its monochromatic interiors. It has a second floor but we didn't get to go up. Service was good. The staff were definitely friendly and polite.

For starters, we ordered FAT POUTINE [P380] which included frites, roasted bone marrow, mushroom ragout, house-made double smoked bacon, kesong puti and bone marrow gravy. It sounds so mouth watering just by the description itself, right? 128069 This was actually quite good. I mean how could you go wrong with fries, bacon, gravy and bone marrow?? (Although there's still room for improvement.) It would have been better if there were more bacon and cheese and thicker gravy. But overall, I'm giving it a 4/5.

For our main dishes, we had ASIAN STYLE SEARED DUCK [P460] which had duck breast, ginger leek sauce, foie gras and mirin rice, and SALMON AND UNI PASTA [P780] which was made of seashell pasta, capers, arugulla, 64 degree egg, sous vide salmon, and crispy salmon skin.

We were actually choosing between the seared duck or the fat all beef burger and the staff recommended the duck. We were quite disappointed with it. The duck a little bit overcooked and it tasted nothing special. I don't know how to describe it but it just let me down. Hahaha look at the picture and judge the dish for yourself. With that, this gets a 3/5.

The SALMON AND UNI PASTA, on the other hand, was crazy good. The sauce was so creamy with a unique taste to it. The salmon was so tender and cooked to perfection. The salmon crust had a hint of sweetness to it which we really liked. Ahh i just love this so much and would really recommend this. 5/5❗️

For dessert, we ordered FAT S'MORES [P150] - Double chocolate brownie, homemade honey graham ice cream and marshmallow fluff. This was above average. The brownie was super thick and flavorful. I thought it was going to be dry at first because it was soooo hard! But when I bit into the brownie, it was actually creamy. The ice cream was good and had a unique taste to it. The only downside of this one was that it did not have enough ice cream. Maybe another scoop of vanilla ice cream would be nice just to balance the heaviness of the brownie. Other than that, this deserves a 4/5. We ordered quite a lot for just two people, don't you agree? Let me tell you, I really felt the fatness when I stood up from our table. 128055

Overall, I think that the dining experience was great and I think I will be back if I had extra cash with me since their menu can be a little bit pricey128184

128680Oh I almost forgot to mention! Their poultry selections are 20% every Thursday and they have a payday madness promotion ongoing wherein you get 20% OFF your total bill for every P2000 worth of food and drinks every THURSDAY of the payday week.‼️

Clean, bright atmosphere for intimate or business occasions. Lunch specials under Php200 are well-portioned and a welcome option from fast-food. There are several dishes which I've enjoyed recently such as the tapa dish, stuffed shrooms, sisig with bone marrow (careful with this one), and the green tea chicharon. Service is distinctly warm and fast so I will likely be back!

I had the opportunity to visit FAT Restaurant again in BGC because of a good friend who is also the Head Chef of this restaurant. Chef Jose always speaks about how simple yet great their desserts are so we just had to come back on a different day just to try their mouthwatering desserts.

127775127856Flourless Dark Chocolate Cake P210
Praline Mousse • Creme Chantilly • Creme Anglaise

I've tried this twice already and if given a chance, i'll keep ordering this dessert. What I like about this flourless cake is it's texture and consistency. Sobrang rich niya and I remember my boyfriend also keeps telling me he liked the texture so much; Sobrang siksik, but doesn't intimidate. Another good thing is that it has the right amount of sweetness. I'm not a sweet tooth so i'm so picky when it comes to cakes and chocolates. I love them, but I can't honestly tolerate those na halos lasang sugar na sa sobrang tamis.

And the Creme Chantilly which is placed on a mini glass container is the bomb! Actually nabitin ako sa creme. It's like thickened milk cream with a tinge of sourness and saltiness. The taste is something unfamiliar to me so I really find it interesting. I wanna drown my cake on that creme!

For P210, this is super worth it. It's good for 2, but I won't definitely share it. Haha! MUST TRY!!!

127856S'mores P185
House Made Mallows • Spicy Chocolate • Ice Cream • Raspberry Jelly

Never been a fan of S'mores. I just don't like the taste of marshmallows and I find it too sweet. It's so over rated to the point that thinking of it make me feel that "umay" factor already. What I liked about what they did to their version of the S'more is they gave it a little twist. Who would think about bringing in Spicy Chocolates and adding Raspberry Jelly?
The spice and citrus flavors contrasted the sweetness of this dessert so thumbs up for that!

127856Matcha Cheescake P235
White Chocolate • Yoghurt • Chocolate Soil

I'm a Matcha fan and this disappointed me a little. Not because of the matcha but the texture of the cake. Para siyang mamon, sobrang mahangin. Walang richness, blunt. and the matcha taste is actually very light you won't even taste it. However naaliw ako sa Chocolate Soil, I thought para lang siyang Milo powder but it's mixed with salt it kinda played with my taste bud and I find that really interesting.

Overall Rating for Desserts: 4.5/511088
I really appreciate FAT's effort in creating creative twists on their desserts. Simple and straight forward pero alam mong pinagisipan. I hope they come out with more fascinating desserts on their menu!

Affordable lunch menu. Sadly, you can't switch the rice with something else. I ended up ordering the Maple Glazed Pork with Salad, which was more salad than pork. What am I doing with my life. Food is good though. But I expected a little more fat and crunch with my pork. Will come back here when I can eat rice already.

We wanted to bring our balikbayan friends to locavore for them to try the sizzling sinigang but it was closed during lunch time so we decided to eat in BGC instead. We heard that FAT has the same chef as locavore's so we decided to try it.

There were A LOT of items in the menu that were not available. The waiter mentioned 5 dishes but i wasn't able to recall it bc he was murmuring the dishes.
Their food was very pricey for ordinary food. :(

We had the spring rolls (140). it was not bad, not memorable either. It came with a sauce that had kikoman & cream mixture.

After the spring rolls, the nachos (P350) was served. The chips were different than the usual nachos. It was softer and it melted in your mouth. The cheese was very few but it also had sour cream and a green colored sauce (silantro?). There were mango bits that added a sweet twist to the nachos.

It took around 30mins for the mains to arrive. The lamb shank (P800) did not feel like it was worth 800. It was a small piece. It was very tender but my friend found it a bit malansa. (Sultan mediterranean's lamb shank was better, bigger and cheaper at only P500. )The mashed potatoes that came with it was good.

We also had the spiced chicken (P500+) it was tender and tasty but it didn't really feel like heaven after eating it. It's normal and skippable.

We were 5 people and spent P400. Medyo pricey considering na hindi pa kami busog nun. I don't think i'll go back again. Nothing worth trying again or going back to. :(

Went here to dine out with friends since we were curious, as the chef owner is also the one who owns Locavore. Locavore has been one of the best innovative restos we've discovered this year, hence Fat surely made us wondering if it could keep up.

I was disappointed. Most of the food were too pricey for the quantity, and did not give a lasting impression on me with regards to taste! In short, bitin.

128298Moroccan spiced chicken fillet - P595
128298Garlic rice - P100

Too expensive for 1 person!

FAT restaurant has been slowly making a buzz in the foodie scene, and being Locavore's Chef Kel's second baby, diners are sure in for a gastronomic adventure!

For Chef Kel, fat makes everything we eat taste better. FAT IS THE FLAVOR. As what Cristina told me, Chef only serves food that he actually likes. And with that, we are assured that they don't scrimp on quality ingredients!128076🏻

I was lucky enough to be invited to try out their food, and here's what they served us:

BAR MIX (P290)
12 spiced nuts, popcorn, powdered sugar, salted caramel, and butter (of course!)
This one I really liked. I actually wanted to take home a tub if they sell it. 128514

I never thought there would be something bigger than my face. Seriously! Their house made chicharon is not your ordinary chicharon. You have to dip it in their pinakurat with honey, and then sprinkle it with the green tea salt. It makes a huge difference, I swear!

Grilled pork's ear served on top of rye bread, with mango mayonnaise, raspberry vinaigrette, saffron aioli, and a side of pico de gallo.
This is their take on sisig, which I really liked. Parang pina-sosyal na sisig! This one's probably one of my favorites among all the food they served.

Lard focaccia, sour cream, cream cheese, smoked salmon, arugula, cornichons, and maple balsamic glaze.
I cannot really give an opinion about this because I don't like smoked salmon, but I think the maple balsamic is too overpowering for me.

Served with spanakopita, cherry tomato, sour cream, and pico de gallo.
I find this a bit salty for my liking if eaten with the skin. You can remove the skin, but it would be too bland. 128529 Probably not gonna order this again.

Served with bacon jam, whipped potatoes, spinach, and mushroom ragout.
I'd definitely come back for this one! The porchetta is cooked perfectly, had the right amount of flavor, and the skin is just divine! I probably have to take Lipitor after, but whatever. YOLO!128540

Praline mousse / creme chantilly / creme anglaise.
Not a fan of this, but everyone seemed to like it. It tasted like ordinary chocolate cake to me. Sort of like Red Ribbon's chocolate mousse but is made with dark chocolate and is just more dense.

Funky Chicken ice cream sandwiched in between 2 chewy waffles, toped with cherry bacon, creme anglaise, and maple balsamic gastrique.
Yes, you read that right. It's a dessert. The ice cream was created by Sebastian's and is actually made with chicken fat. Yes, chicken fat. I really loved the flavor of the ice cream, but the waffles were too tough!

Blueberry compote, maple balsamic glaze, and topped with brown butter ice cream.
My favorite among the 3 desserts! Who would have thought that you could enjoy your cheesecake in a sandwich? It was grilled to perfection, and actually tasted like french toast.

Their servers are very courteous and know the menu well, which is a really good thing as there were times that I didn't know what to do with a dish.

It's best to come with friends and share as their food is too rich. Or maybe it's the Chinese in me that's making me avert anything too salty and fatty. 128514 But I would love to come back and try their Salpicao, Poutine, and Bacon Baklava! (Ehem #TeamClingy!!!)

Ever since i saw this restaurant open near my cousin’s place, it really got me curious to try this place out. I mean i’m not the type of person who’s really into eating chunks of fat, i’m actually the type who removes all of those when i eat, but i do know that fats from any animals could actually give off extra flavours on our food, so having a few of it from time to time wouldn’t hurt that much just as long as you don’t do eat it often. Anyway, first of all, when you see FAT as the name of the restaurant, you’ll end up thinking they serve really sinful food and with loads of fat, but it’s not really the case. Most of the food they serve may be high in cholesterol, but not all of it were filled with loads of fat and they actually mix a few veggies on the side to balance it out.

What we ordered:

SOUP OF THE DAY, which was tomato porchetta soup for that day. It was cooked in pork broth, a little tomato sauce thus the dark colour of the soup, cube slices of porchetta, onions and garnished with a little bit of parsley. I’m actually guessing the ingredients put in here as it was what i could actually taste from my every slurp of this soup. By the way, we split this soup into 2, so it’s good for sharing. This was actually one of the dishes i liked that night.

PORK’S EAR EN CROUTE, it’s pork ears grilled in herb oil, chopped in small pieces and placed on top of sliced sourdough bread. You also have 3 side dips that you could choose from that you can add on top, which are mango mayo, saffron aioli and i think raspberry confit. They also made a few cucumber salsa on the side too. The pork’s ear was as expected gelatinous and greasy. The sourdough was too tough to eat. I suggest that they change their bread for this dish. As for the dips, i’m not really a fan of mayo or anything similar to that , so what i enjoyed adding on top of mine was the raspberry confit. Well it’s just my opinion. This dish for me was just okay.

SALMON AND UNI PASTA, boiled seashell pasta, cooked al dente. Pasta sauce was cream base, with few chunks of sweet cooked uni, parmesan cheese, and seasoned with a few pinch of salt and pepper. Topped with a thick slice of sous vide salmon, which was seasoned just right and was cooked perfectly. It had crispy salmon skin, poached egg and cherry tomatoes too, which for me was kind of such a waste when added on this dish. I liked the uni and salmon, they’re really good. I just feel like this dish had too many flavours bursting out of it, sweet, sour, salty, bitter, a little hint of spice and partly bland. I hope that they’ll improve on this one though.

BRAISED LAMB SHANK, lamb shanks were cooked perfectly. It’s soft and you can easily separate the meat from the bone. There were some mushroom ragout also on this dish, as i can see some oyster mushroom and sliced portabello mushrooms and perfectly cooked shallots. We had mashed potatoes on the side too with cream that you could pour it in. The lamb shank was okay, but still not the best i had so far.

I was quite disappointed with the food, but hopefully other people who haven’t visited will have a better experience than i did when they find the time to go.

Well, here as a break from the new restaus. Everything here seems so interesting and new. We had the Fat Poutine, Basque Piperade, & Salpicao. Let me go first with the Salpicao. It was heavenly and the beef was just mmm, mmm, mmm. Flavor was so rich, soft and cooked to a beautiful med rare doneness. The steak rice paired well with it too.

As for the poutine, which is fries with bacon, mushroom, kesong puti cheese plus with roasted bone marrow which, you drizzle with bone marrow gravy. Uhuh. You read that right. Bone marrow gravy. Man, as I write about this now, I'm already missing the taste. It's good. You'd wish they make fries like these avail for cinemas haha

The basque is made from tomato confit, peppers, chorizo pamplona, bacon, 64deg egg and comes with a baguette. This tastes like a gourmet pizza to me and it's really good. I was so excited to try the egg since I love egg and we enjoyed it so much, we had 2 extra eggs ordered lol. As for the dish, loved the grilled peppers and the tomato confit. It's a delight in every bite!

We enjoyed our meal from start to end. Most of all, Inlove how their dishes are selected and well thought of. It's not complicated but interesting. I do see myself dining here real soon again! 128512

Had dinner with my high school friends here on a Thursday night. I heard that the chef here is the same as the one in Locavore, so I was expecting that the place would be full. Surprisingly, it's not, even if their dishes are pretty awesome.

We were a group of 5, and we ordered the following dishes, all for sharing:

Basque Piperade - This is one of the dishes we loved the most. Their tomato confit was very tasty, and the mix of bacon, chorizo, cheese and egg was heavenly! Their bread has a crunchy crust but is very soft inside, perfect with the Piperade.

Duck Burger - this was just okay, nothing special. It lacked oomph. Also, it's quite expensive for a so-so burger. The fries were cooked perfectly.

Moroccan Spiced Chicken Fillet - the chicken was tender, but the seasoning wasn't extraordinarily good for the price. The spanakopita at the bottom more than makes up for the dish, though. It was so so so so good! If you love the Tostitos Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip like I do, then you'll love this too! It's a shame that the phyllo crust isn't crunchy anymore, because it got soaked from the chicken, but I would still eat this in a heartbeat!

Porchetta - The porchetta was tasty and the meat was tender. It's even better when combined with the whipped mashed potato, gravy and caramelized onions. Too bad that the skin wasn't crispy at all, or we would've like this dish more.

Salpicao - this was the star of the night. We requested for it to be cooked medium rare, and it was done perfectly. The meat was juicy and tender, the sauce was just right, and the egg and rice perfectly complemented the dish. I could say that this is the best Salpicao I've tasted so far!

We were too full to order dessert, but their selections were very interesting, it's not something you would see in any restaurant.

The servers were also very nice and hands-on. Even if we were seated on the 2nd floor, we were fully attended to.

I will definitely come back to try their other dishes and desserts! It may be a bit pricey, but I think the good food and the reasonable servings are worth it.

Go here hungry. I can't believe we visited this place with half empty stomachs only suited for snacks and desserts. The mains were so enticing and we were so tempted but unfortunately, we were just too full. More reasons to come back?128513

We settled for an order of Pork's Ear en Croute which is basically grilled pork ears on sourdough bread. It came with aioli mayo, raspberry vinaigrette and cream sauce plus a small serving of rockets. It was reminiscent of our all-time favorite sisig, but I never knew it was possible to have it eaten in that manner. Good take on a delicious (not so light) snack. For dessert, we had the Grilled White Chocolate Cheesecake Sandwich which has blueberry compote sandwiched between two toasts with maple-balsamic glaze and brown butter ice cream. I enjoyed this the most, particularly when the ice cream started melting and the flavors seeped through the bread. A bit cloying and heavy on the stomach but very delightful in so many levels!128522

Prices here are a bit steep though, so come prepared. But don't worry because it's worth every penny; you get great quality food and experience efficient service.

A newly discovered restaurant here at Burgos Circle. (which was previously the location of Izumi Bar) Curious why it's called FAT? It was said that they specialized on fatty parts as their menu. There was 10 of us in the group but we discovered that the serving is not recommended for big groups as they serve in small portions. I guess for max 4 people it's still ok. What we did is just take small parts so everyone can taste the dishes. I didn't take note of all the orders except for those that got me interested.

I enjoyed their pork ears on sourdough bread. It didn't feel like i was eating something gummy and it was very tender. The condiments served with it goes really well. I also liked the chicken fillet though there was nothing special about it besides tgat it tastes delicious and juicy. But the best dishes that i would recommend are the salmon and uni pasta and sous vide tuna. They really know how to cook your fish; just the right tenderness, not overcooked and you won't taste fish being fishy.

Comfort food to its finest this is the best description for Fat. We had Bacon Platter with capers top on the french toast and Pork's Ear En Croute with sour cream and arugula for starters. For our Mains, we had the most tender and flavorful Lamb with roasted garlic i ever had, Salmon and Uni Pasta that gives you the scrumptious feeling of having some more and the Salpicao to its medium doneness that i highly recommend! Every flavor compliments each other, every bite feels like heaven. If you're thinking that it's all fatty and unhealthy well, i tell you this, the chef incorporates good fat from the flavors of each dish so it's not that bad at all. You'd miss half of your life if you didn't get to try this place! It's a great experience.
