MOVED: Fat Saigon Boy has moved to 51 Telok Ayer Street #01-02 Singapore 048441. Reservations here.
Any eatery with “Fat” in the name, I’m in. But if you want “authentic” Vietnamese food, Fat Saigon Boy at Ann Siang Road is not the place to go; the food is adjusted to local tastebuds. Which means to say it’s not bad at all.
For lunch, $13 ($13.90 with taxes) gives a main, a side, a drink. The beef pho broth is much too sweet and strong, and the sliced beef overcooked and of not very good quality. But as a whole, it’s palatable. Pork belly spring roll, as a side, is ok–love the nutty dip.
I wouldn’t rush to Fat Saigon Boy, but if I’m nearby and want broth-y non-hawker, I will be back.
