Two Fat Men – Thai or Western Food ? You Decide. [CLOSED]



Two Fat Men is a Gastro Bar located along East Coast Road. This little establishment open from 5pm to 1 in the morning. During the weekend it also serve Live Premier League matches for those football lovers in Singapore.


For those with hungry stomachs, they serve Western Food and Thai Street Food to go along with their wide variety of beers, cocktails and mocktails.



We decided Bacon & Egg Burger ($11.20) and Portabello Burger ($13.90) from the Western Menu. The burgers are served in the simple and bare version. When the menu said burger, it basically mean burger with no side dish such as fries or salad at all. The patties are meaty and juicy. For the bacon and eggs, it is accompany by the crispy bacon, however it can be a bit salty. While the portabello mushroom is almost as the burger patties in size. It might looks plain, however it is full of flavour.

Grilled Pork Neck ($9.90), Grill Squid ($11.90) and Tang Hoon Prawn ($9.90) were our choice from the Thai Street Food menu. The Grilled Pork Neck with Tamarind Spicy Sauce is the favourite item in the Two Fat Men. The pork neck has been marinated over a long period, the meat is tender and succulent with a nice grill burnt flavour The same can be said with the grill squid, tender and not chewy. The charred from the frill actually helps to accentuate the flavour the squid.

Unlike the grilled pork neck and squid, the Tang Hoon Prawn is slightly disappointing. The tang hoon is slightly dry and they seems to be a bit shy about using the herbs, resulting the dish to taste on a bland side. In Thailand, they will normally use pork fat to oil the tang hoon, maybe they can use olive oil to compensate the health conscious Singaporean and kick up a notch on the spice level. The prawns are fresh and juicy. '

The service is friendly but minimum. The decoration is very simple. Customer has a choice of outdoor open air seating, or indoor with round marble tables like old kopitiam style instead of a bar.

Some of Beers Available

Homemade Ice Lemon Tea

Overall, we find the serving of Western and Thai food are quite unique. The food are delicious, however Thai Street food has been tone down version from its original version. Combine with the drinks, live EPL, and late opening hours, this is definitely a good place for late night dining, hang out place or watch Manchester United Games!!!
