The Fat Pig Pluit is a pork house that just founded a month ago. Specialized in Porky menus, each guest would be delighted by the best suckling pig or even pork satay in town. Traditional Balinese meal entirely inspired all of the menus. Perhaps, The Fat Pig Pluit has created their signature menu by adding a modern touch to it. As the results, each menu here is beautifully presented and truly eye-catching.
Tucked away in Pluit Utara Raya exactly inside the Auto Lounge Premium Detailing Center, The Fat Pig comes in a small and tight dining area like no other. This family run business is very successful and fully integrated. All staff is very friendly and fast respond. I do visit this place on Tuesday, and it takes less than 10 minutes until my meal is ready.
Start with the crowd pleaser menu called Babi Guling Rice (IDR 55,000 / S$ 6,30). Featuring the hearty combination between crispy suckling pig, pork tender, chicken with green chili sauce, pork satay, and mixed of vegetables. It's juicy, tender, and flavourful. I do love the meaty texture of that pork pieces which is not too dry but still moist as well. Another highlight on that plate was the spicy chili padi that match to be paired with any choice of protein. Within that price tag, I will recommend you to try this.
Roast Pork and Char Siew (IDR 55,000 / S$ 6,30) is another great menu here. The row of BBQ honey pork is the real star here. It's juicy, tender, and flavourful. When you start placing that meat on your tongue, it will start dissolving immediately. Also, that roast pork is pretty good as well. The skin remains crispy until the last bite of it while that meat is just tender and fatty. For the best experience, do have this while it warm.
Still not enough? Pork Satay (IDR 6,000 / S$ 0,85/ piece) is a must. As I spoke earlier, this side dishes impressed me a lot. The texture of that meat is not too chewy, nor dry, but it is just well balanced. Slightly juicy at the first bite, followed by the soft and tender texture at next. Three pieces are enough.
The Fat Pig Pluit is worth a try. All menu made fresh upon order and unbelievably delicious. The manager spoke to me earlier that Babi Guling Rice is quickly sold out along with the Pork Satay means you need to try both.
