Nicely balanced Cantonese cooking

Cantonese cuisine can be so generic and poorly executed all over the world, but not at Fatty Weng's new place in Chinatown.  It's a huge improvement over the previous tenant of this iconic corner.  The food is nicely balanced and a good mix of what "Chinese" restaurant patrons from all over expect in a Cantonese menu, and the chef's unique dishes.  The decor and staff are wonderful.  This is not one of those huge dining halls full of tables for 12.  This is more intimate and clean, more of a restaurant than a dining hall.  It works!

My only real complaint is the price - quite high for what you get, though this location makes it justifiable, I suppose.

Our food had bits of dish scrubs in it.

Fatty weng's food is tasty no doubt, especially soon hock which we never failed to order everytime we went.

However, our vegetable dish had a bristle from a brush and some bits of dish scrub so we asked the asst manger over for assistance on the matter. They did not change our dish nor was there an apology, just upon spitting out the bristle and observing the scrub bits from us, she confirmed 'oh it's from washing the dishes' and walked away. Was quite disappointed and probably won't go back anytime soon.

Hearty Cantonese Cuisine

Fatty Weng is an established brand when it comes to Cantonese food, and its not surprise that this new outlet at Smith Street is gaining in popularity.

Start with something light - the Tofu with Mushroom and Broccoli has soft silky beancurd with slightly cooked broccoli to add a crunch in a reduction sauce.

For something more indulgent try the Deep fried Soon Hock - fresh fish with black sauce to add to a salt crunch finish.

Another rich dish is the Pai Kwat Wong, or pork ribs served with thick sweet sauce.

For some soul food, go for the Xiao Bai Chye with 3 eggs- with light broth to calm you after a long day at the office.

Finally, end with the Chilled Mango Sago. Thick large portion served in a bowl chilled that would leave a lingering sweet taste in the mouth.

Well there you have it, traditional Cantonese food at Fatty Weng, located right at the heart of China Town to add to the vibe.

Good old taste

With the new food street reopen after months of renovation. There are some new restaurants have move into the street. Among them Fatty Weng is the most easy to identify because they are just located at the corner shop with plenty table and chairs outside the restaurant. I have no knowledge of Fatty Weng until my friend brings me there for lunch. I was a bit worries when he told me this restaurant is located in the Chinatown newly open food street aka “Tourist street’ where usually places where only the foreign tourist will visit not the locals. But it turns out all right for me. First I like the restaurant have outdoor and indoor area. The outdoor will be popular during nighttime. Indoor will be best option during lunchtime. We ordered a few dishes to share and here are some of the dishes that I really like : Signature Tofu – very very smooth tofu with tasty sauce. Pork ribs with sweet sauce  - I like the way they cut the ribs to make it more meat less bone. This thing goes very well with rice! Seafood Crispy beehon – the presentation is beautiful and it taste good too! Finally the mango sago dessert is the best to end the lunch. The cold and mango rich sago really hit the sweet spot for the hot afternoon. This restaurant is very suitable for family and friend to have a nice meal after some shopping at Chinatown.

Yummy Cantonese Fare!

Most people will know Fatty Weng back when they were at a shophouse, next to the Singapore Badminton Hall. They later expanded to an airconditioned outlet at Singapore Badminton Hall, before closing both outlets and relocating to Chinatown. 

Now occupying two floors at a corner shophouse, you can now enjoy great Cantonese fare in an air-conditioned environment! It is right next to the Chinatown Complex (hawker centre/ market) and at the start of the Chinatown Food Street.

My lunch kakis and I came for lunch and we had the following dishes:
- Deep-fried Soon Hock: The fish was fresh and well done. The sauce complemented the fish well.
- 'Pai Kwat Wong' (Pork Ribs): Good portion was served. The dish had good 'wok-hei' (wok's breath) that made this dish popular amongst my lunch kakis.
- Toufu with mushroom and brocolli: A healthy compliment to our meal. 
- Signature Bee Hoon with seafood: This was a visual feast! The bee hoon was crispy and shaped like a wok, with stir-fried seafood, met and vegetables in the middle. Must-order!
- Xiao Bai Chye with 3 eggs: Usually you get spinach for this dish, but we decided on a different vegetable. The 3 eggs came together beautifully and the added wolfberries added a natural sweetness to the dish. Try it!
- Chilled Mango Sago: This was sweet, and a perfect way to end the meal.

If you are looking for Cantonese food that's prepared the good-old traditional way, you can come for your fix here!
