Fat Belly is an extremely conducive location for a quiet meal with some friends and the ambience was very good as well.

I ordered the Deckle and it was a really nice cut and was perfectly cooked, the Truffle fries also complemented the dish well. Topping it off was a delicious Basque Burnt Cheesecake that went extremely well with the passionfruit sauce served with it!

I would definitely patronise Fat Belly again!

My favourite had to the eggs from The Breakfast Work and the Truffle Fries! The portion were generous and was enough to serve 2! If you are looking for something on the sweeter side would definitely recommend the Brûlée French Toast! Overall would come back again with friends to share more main ◡̈

The food was really nice. The portion for the breakfast is super huge and definitely worth for it’s price. My favorite dish was the Brûlée French Toast, it has a thin layer melted sugar that gives it a crunchy taste, super good if you love to have a sweet dessert for breakfast/lunch.

Camaca is a hidden gem at King Albert Park specialising in sugar-free desserts. Gelatos here are encapsulated in giant macaronesque shells and required a special machine to process for serving. The Royal Earl Grey gelato was light yet creamy with a lingering floral aftertaste, and the Hot Mocha smooth with a slight bitter undertone. The flavours were well-balanced and an innovative spin on decadent food.

Moist and juicy deckle and denver steak! Which were also seasoned to perfection.

Had a go at the Duck Cassoulet. Tucked beneath the thick layer of pancetta cheese was a rich and flavourful tomato sauce with duck slices hidden within. Rare to see duck done in this manner in Singapore cafes

Look at that beauty! Thoroughly enjoyed the truffle scrambled eggs with proscuitto. Would recommend

Stumbled upon reviews of @bbsizzling and this signature cornflake chicken caught my eye. For a massive piece of chicken cutlet priced affordably below $10, I just had to check it out.

Easily larger than my palm, the insane crispiness of the chicken cutlet batter was further enhanced by the crunchy cornflakes added to the crust. However, it got a little too hard for biting and we were a little concerned for those with weaker teeth. Nevertheless, the flavour of the batter was actually quite tasty, which explains why their fries were so addictive since the same batter was used for both chicken and fries. This was only made possible after rounds and rounds of R&D trials.

While the marination seemed one-dimensional, we were greeted by glistening, juicy yet firm chicken thigh wrapped within. Served on the side were some vegetables and mentaiko fries. Crispy airy batter with soft moist potato filling, dipped into a tangy mayonnaise-like sauce, accompanied by beads of pinkish fish roe. Subtle hint of spices in the seasoning was a wonderful contrast to the burst of umami.

Other popular options for mains were air-flown Australia Sirloin Beef and Mixed Grill. There’s also a Mala pasta with breaded chicken. Customise your dish by first deciding on a main, pair it with carbs such as fries, olive rice or pasta and finishing it with black pepper or mushroom sauce.

The place is small but the ambience in Fat Belly is classy and comfortable. We managed to get a seat at the counter to witness the chefs preparing food. The place only opens at night. It is best to make a reservation before going because there are limited indoor seats.
We ordered Jack’s Creek Crossbred Wagyu Marble Score 4/5 Denver (200g) and Icon Crossbred Wagyu Marble Score 4/5 Deckle (300g) as our mains. The fats make them tender and chewy. The bright-red hue against the charcoal-grilled exterior makes the dish appealing and savoury. It was a fascinating experience.
We also had truffle fries, sautéed thyme mushroom medley and pomme puree as our side dishes. They gave a huge portion of the delicious truffle fries! The mushrooms were flavourful and soft. The pomme puree is buttery and creamy! Overall the side-dishes were delectable and better than I had expected!
We had tiramisu for our dessert. There is a slight tinge of alcohol and it tastes heavenly. It literally melts in my mouth!

A booth outside orchid garden in botanic garden. Açai with chia pudding, buckini, blueberries, banana, cocoa nibs, natural peanut butter.

I like the consistency of the açai. It was not too icy or watery and actually tasted like blueberry sorbet. At $9, you get a pretty big portion. I enjoyed this topping combination and there are definitely enough toppings to go with the açai.

One of the better açai bowls in Singapore. Will be back.

We got their seafood squid ink pasta and their bacon carbonara.

The pasta had good texture and was cooked to a perfect al-dente. The squid ink pasta came with fresh mussels, prawns and squid and was pretty good. The carbonara was quite perfect with the creamy pasta base and savoury bacon bits.

Food wise, not a bad pasta fix, however, be prepared to... SWEAT!

The restaurant is barely air-conditioned. For $15++ a pasta and $20++ a main, this is pretty unbearable. Come only if you have Burpple Beyond, if not, it is not worth it. The service was also disappointing, with the waitress serving us seeming aloof and disinterested in life in general.

Overall, its a one and done for us.

Our go-to drink when we need a caffeine boost. A great combination of dark cocoa, vanilla chai and expresso altogether.

A little on the pricier side at $7 a glass but the ambience makes it worth it.

side note: get your coffee with some ice-cream, they serve great ice cream. Would highly recommend the Butter pecan flavour to go with it.
