Fat Spoon Is No Longer The Same

I used to be a Fat Spoon advocate, and has introduced many friends and family to this cozy grandma’s recipes restaurant.

But I have changed over the years. I am no longer crazily in love with Fat Spoon. Not because of the many new shining F&B establishments out there.

Walking in, I no longer see familiar faces. They used to have friendly and top-notch staff. To be fair to their new staff, they are good too, but it’s just not the same. But nevertheless, kudos to Fat Spoon for kick-ass staff training and retention 🙂


Nasi ulam
Food-wise, long gone were their whole piece of kembong fish that goes with their Nasi Ulam and Perut Ikan. It used to be a perfect plate. Not anymore.


Spicy beef macaroni soup
This visit, I was however pleased with their Spicy Beef Macaroni soup. Tried this long time ago, and it still tastes good. Perhaps I can now forget (and forgive) all about the kembong fish, and accept that things are no longer same-old. Out with the old, in with the new.

Ambience-wise, it is still the same. A comfy quaint place that you can be yourself, and be at ease.


Lemongrass & pandan tea, good for the soul
Perhaps my love for this place has rekindled over their pot of Lemongrass & Pandan tea and spicy beef macaroni soup.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
