Fat Spoon's charming door, with a wooden fat spoon as a door handle - it looks like the place has been around for decades - well, apart from the way I edited the photo :o)
Inside looking out ...
The interior deco is a mix and mash of old & new ...
(more old than new), something borrow, something blue ... A big blackboard menu adorns the wall, adding a whimsical feel to it; reminding me of my schooldays.
Look, it's a cushion sofa from the 70s! More whimsical touches to the quaint restaurant with a mix of old furniture from different eras ...
What we have hanging over our heads ... Hey Diddle Diddle comes to mind :o)
Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such a sport,
and the dish ran away with the spoon!
Which explains why the dish and spoon weren't hanging there .... :o)
More recycling ideas - old Ladybird books ....
Of course, we did get round to ordering ... Homemade Yam Cake (RM4.90) was pretty good. A good mix of flour and yam, though I would have preferred the fried shallot topping to be crispy (rather than soft) for a balance of a good crunch together with the soft texture of the yam cake.
Perut Ikan with Bread (RM7.90)- a small rice bowl serving of perut ikan with a bun. Friend commented that the perut ikan dish was devoid of perut ikan (fish stomach) itself. When asked, the proprietor says that their recipe for perut ikan is made non-perut ikan style! Huh??? Well, maybe they should explain this to customers at the time of ordering so that the customers won't be wondering. I do find it odd ... My friend said that it was below average for him since the main ingredient is missing!
I ordered the Dried Prawns (Heh Bee) Fritters - 6 small pieces for RM4.90. While the dough was of a nice texture and fried golden brown, the dried prawns weren't adequate and had been blended way too fine. These fritters fell short on taste.
I haven't really tried the other things on the menu ... and I won't mind coming back again as the ambiance and setting is a pull factor for me. A little place for me to slip back into my childhood days after a mind taxing meeting is always a good thing, plus since the place is only about 6 months old, I'll cut it some slack ;o)
