You can’t go wrong with meats and sweets and that’s exactly what Fat Lulu’s serves up. Conceptualised by the founders of the Five & Dime eatery this new dive inhabits the same space the café used to,promising gritty Asian BBQ and decadently smooth desserts from their chefs Sam & Song. The duo are polar opposites both in and out of the kitchen but there’s no mistaking they’re a culinary match made in heaven proving the cliché that opposites really do attract as they bring together their distinct personalities and expertise in a killer spread of savoury and sweet.

Known as the BBQ dude, Chef Sam’s favoured method of cooking is fire over charcoal delivering perfectly charred meats every single time and is pretty obsessed with kicap manis (sweetened soya sauce) as most of the dishes feature a generous dousing of the sweet and salty concoction that will have you licking your plate clean. Their signature savouries include Duh Meat Board that consists of wagyu skirt steak, pork collar and burnt kailan and Spicy Pork Ribs, a mammoth slab of whole pork rib slathered in their house made sauce that’s a blend of chipotle, kechap manis and rice wine vinegar. 

On the other side of the kitchen we have Chef Song, the reserved and soft-spoken pastry connoisseur who puts out desserts of refined delicacy. He has one simple commitment to his craft, that is to make people happy with his creations and he definitely delivers with his meticulous attention to detail and flair for modern interpretations of well-known favourites. Signature desserts include Childhood, a nod to the classic peanut butter and jam sandwich featuring a peanut butter popsicle, dark chocolate cookie, and raspberry granita and Atas Kinder Bueno a tribute to chocolate, it’s four different chocolates– Bailey’s hazelnut cream,chocolate sponge, creamy milk chocolate, and bitter chocolate sherbet in a “chocolate bar” that looks amazing and tastes even better. 

Satisfaction is guaranteed every time with their uncompromising attitude towards the food they put out. Fat Lulu’s will leave you in a food coma you don’t want to wake up from.
