I have read many fabulous reviews about the delicious and huge burgers served at Fatboy’s The Burger Bar which is not surprising when Fatboy’s The Burger Bar has been nominated by numerous websites and food blogs as one of the best burgers in Singapore but Upper Thomson is really out of the way for me, so I have not had the chance to try the amazing burgers.
Fatboy’s The Burger Bar has recently opened a franchise at Marina Square called The Burger Bar. It is a down-sized version of the original restaurant, but at least it beats travelling an hour for a burger.

In an effort to promote healthy eating, all foods does not come with sauces. You can get sauces and salt from the condiments corner.
I ordered Burger Of The Month and Truffle Fries.
Truffle Fries is definitely the best I have eaten. I prefer my truffle fries to be thin and crispy and not buried under a mountain of Parmesan cheese that I can hardly taste the fragrance of the truffle oil.
Burger Of The Month consists of cheese, lettuce, beef patty and bacon. It looks good but somehow lack the “wow” factor.
You can end your meal with on a sweet note with an ice-cream cookie from The Ice-Cream & Cookie Co. but I personally find them too sweet.
The restaurant is run by Rajan (the tall guy) and his two helpers .
To tell you the truth, I am a little disappointed. The food is average at best, not at all how I imagined a highly-raved burger would taste like. There is something lacking, I guess the only way I will find out is to try out the burgers at the original Upper Thomson flagship store.
