[CLOSED] The Fat Cat Bistro @ Holland Village, Singapore

Monday, July 21, 2014

The Fat Cat Bistro is located in along Holland Village, not the stretch of pubs but rather the cast off other end, where it is less crowded. If you are at the cross junction of Lorong Liput aka Holland Village, go down slope towards Sushi Tei, The Fat Cat Bistro is just opposite Subway.

The restaurant offers a variety of Thai, North Indian and Western dishes, even their menus are categorised that way. 

Thai Yai: Chef Nang’s Thai cookery inspired by street food in Bangkok and Changmai.
Masala Mantra: Serves the authentic North Indian favourites
The French Onion: Chef Mike Chung’s Western cookery from lamb shank to pasta

Started with the appetisers from Thai, Pomelo Salad [$11], pomelo mixed with cherry tomatoes, coriander, cashew nuts and honey tamarind dressing.
The blend was very refreshing and it is a dish to kick start your appetite for sure.

Mantra Wings [$10], fried chicken wings with seasoned with Indian herbs.
No wonder it was on their must try list! Simple as it seems but it was super yummy, crispy and flavourful. It easier made it to my must order list in Fat Cat too :)

Grilled Beetroot Salad [$13], beetroot on mesclun salad with balsamic dressing.
Never knew beetroot can be a salad, definitely my first to try this. It tasted pretty regular for a Western salad, plus for a simple appetiser to range at this price could be a tad too costly.

Looking forward to the main course, with Green Curry Chicken [$13], Thai's signature green curry of apple eggplants and holy basil.
It comes with either Chicken/Pork/Baby Snapper/Prawn and the best part, they all cost the same! As a Thai green curry lover myself, this is slightly disappointing with too much milk that it over rule the authentic taste.  

Freshly baked Garlic and Butter Naan [$3 each portion] with the highly recommended Chicken Masala [$11], diced chicken pieces cooked with fresh tomatoes and onions in spicy thick gravy.
The authentic Indian food beside Roti Prata. The naan was well prepared, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. On the other hand, the chicken masala was not too spicy and goes well with the naan. 

Duck Confit [$24], leg of duck served with red wine sauce, creamy mash potatoes and ratatouille.
Love how tender the duck tasted, where it can be easily separated from the bone. Thumbs up to no mess! However, not the ratatouille though, as the carrots were too "crunchy".

Last but not least, the Western desserts, Tiramisu [$7], traditional genoise sponge fingers soaked in white rum, cognac and espresso, layered with light mascarpone cheese.
Only recommend if you like your tiramisu with extra Rum. The alcohol is so strong that it covered the coffee taste.

Another Western desserts, from the Cheesecake of the Week, Oreo Cheesecake [$6.50].
To my surprise, the cheesecake is overly soft and a tad too creamy for my liking.

The Fat Cat Bistro also serves Udders ice cream and desserts from the Thai and North Indian cuisine. For the beverage, check out their purfect hour (happy hour) as they serve crafted beers, wines, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks such as juice, coffee and tea. I am sure you will be spoilt for choices with the three yummy cuisines to choose from!

Plus points for family with kids, they have kids portions for Western pastas and a a short list of food to choose from in Thai's menu.
