Everybody loves a burger, right? Greasy, greasy…totally bad for your heart, but yet so satisfying!
There’s been write-ups in mags of the many new restaurants in Avenue K, so off I went to suss out the place since I was nearby in KLCC. The last time I was at Avenue K, the place was jacked-up in total shambles, so I was expecting to see a new-look mall. *Horrors!* 😱 What lies beneath million-$$ apartments are ‘flea-markets’!
Word. Many restaurants alright, but I am suspicious of East-Meets-West type of innovative cuisines… there’s a couple of South American types of eateries, Japanese fusion, Taiwanese fusion…etc. Finally settled on an American diner with cartoons on the walls advertising burgers and milkshake, clear and simple.
I was surprised to find that pork is served – got my thumb-up here – because everybody knows lard and cholesterol go hand-in-hand!
The menu is very comprehensive about the burgers, milkshakes and specials.
Fat Basterd: Double-patties, bacon, cheddar cheese, fried egg on sesame bun
Bushtucker: Beef patty, bacon melted cheese, wild arugula on whole wheat bun
Perhaps I should have ordered a burger as well. My pork and beef meatballs were very tough. I don’t like food drenched in gravy… but the mashed potatoes and coleslaw were pleasing.
What I liked about the place was the free-flow soda drinks – and that includes Diet Pepsi!
So, aptly named – ‘Fat Boys’, but I don’t want to be part of the family! Perhaps, FaceBook Warriors?
