From melt-in-your-mouth wagyu fit for a king; to cocktails worthy of royalty, Fat Prince’s new menu boasts an epic journey along the Silk Route unlike any other with its newest cooking method.

With a long standing tradition of modernising the face and taste of Middle Eastern cuisine in Tanjong Pagar, the Fat Prince Bar-Kafé-Kebab’s latest acquisition now further revolutionises how meat is prepared. Their custom built traditional earth pit oven— a total rarity in the local F&B scene, mind you— has the ability to heat meat up to temperatures that soar to an incredible 450°C. Meaning, their signature roasts get even more succulent as they are roasted even slower like never before; retaining an incredible amount of moisture as it braises in their own juices and nutrients; resulting in dishes that boast greater flavour profiles that break apart so easily at the glide of a knife. And the verdict is in: diners have nothing but praise for the restaurant’s new oven-cooked dishes.
A few of the additions at Fat Prince of note are their Iberico Pork Rack and the Wagyu Beef Cheek. You know, there is nothing quite like sinking your teeth into an otherwise quintessentially Middle Eastern tasting dish, but updated with the presence of other unlikely and deceptively incongruous spices, like the Szechuan peppercorn and Turkish coffee. Instantly reminding us of the precious commodities that were traded along the Silk Route of yore, the Iberico pork is at once juicy and so delectably spicy!
But the one true pièce de résistance in our book is the restaurant’s Wagyu Beef Cheek. Now, we have had our fair share of Sunday roasts. We have had our fair share of steaks. But the way Fat Prince prepares this beef dish in the earth pit oven will offer diners a complete religious experience. Picture this: a massive portion of slow cooked premium grade Wagyu that is fermented in chilli, walnut crumble and za’atar that melts not only in your mouth but your heart too.
And lest we forget the sweet libations on offer at the restaurant, their signature koktails also go perfectly with the new mains on their menu. Might we suggest washing down the Fat Prince’s meat with a few crowd favourites like their Gimlet 100 and Marsh Attak.
