The menu comprises one of the most innovative takes on modern Asian fusion in Singapore, the bar is helmed by one of the best mixologists around Outram Park and Duxton Hill, and the decor is funky and stylish – what more could you ask for from a Chinese laundromat? Seriously, though, it’s hard to think of something you desire that Phat Cat Laundry doesn’t have (unless you are actually hoping to wash some clothes at this little Jiak Chuan Road venue, because the kitschy laundry-themed items are only for decoration). It’s small, cute and popular, so be sure to book a table at Phat Cat Laundry well in advance!
See below for Phat Cat Laundry's Menu!
The cohesive link intertwining all the different facets that make Outram Park’s Phat Cat Laundry something truly unique in Singapore seems to be two-fold: fun and innovation. This is kind of a Chinatown laundromat, but only in theme and style, because it’s much more accurately described as a funky modern bar and restaurant that dishes up creative, innovative Asian fusion food (and just happens to be decorated with washing machines, laundry powder on the wall and a plastering of old laundromat receipts). Phat Cat Laundry is fairly new to Jiak Chuan Road but it’s already one of the most hyped eateries in the area, so it’s always wise to book a table well in advance if you want to sample the amazing food on offer!
When we say amazing food, we mean things like rice with wild mushrooms fried in bone marrow, mirin, ginger and served with roasted bone marrow, a whole bone-in brontosaurus char siu beef rib marinated overnight then cooked sous-vide for 18 hours, truffled prawn egg rolls with lemongrass and fish roe and a very special Sichuan burger with a juicy pork and beef patty marinated in Phat Cat Laundry’s own Sichuan spice mix and served with sambal aioli and sweet potato fries. As amazing as the modern Asian fusion food is, the bar at this Outram Park star is overseen renowned, innovative mixologist Hilda Tan, and the exquisite cocktails here on Jiak Chuan Road should not be overlooked!
it's a Thursday evening and not too crowded. Will be back soon for sure.. do keep the drinks list updated on a regular basis :)
The environment is cozy. Messy Sweet Potato Fries is awesome. stop myself from eating it. their cocktail menu is so creative ! The flavour was good for Crab Noodles.
Great Happy Hour, Pork Knuckle was amazing and also the spicy squid. Great music and service was spot on. Will be back. Location is great as lots of spots for drinks really close. X
ambience is nice. staffs are friendly. food was great. I like their cocktail. very interesting name is given to all the cocktail. price is acceptable.
Food-wise, I tried the truffled prawn egg rolls, brontosaurus char siu ribs (MUST TRYYYY) and bone marrow fried rice, I think the truffled prawn egg rolls and brontosaurus ribs were delicious, I would definitely order them again the next time. The fried rice was ordinary, nothing special. Drinks-wise, I loved the seasonal red wine and prosecco (: Orion beer was fine. For housepour spirits, I had vodka+soda, I would have preferred a fruity mixer tho. For cocktails, I had the golden shower (gin+sugar+cinnamon+...), I enjoyed it too (: Overall ambience was nice, really good to chill and catch up with friends and family. The music isn't too loud, the deco all goes very well with the laundromat concept, the sofa and cushions are nice and comfy. If you're sitting near the aircon vents, it'll be cold, so maybe bring along a jacket? (Or maybe it's meant to get you to order more drinks to warm up hahaha!)
The atmosphere is nice and I like their happy hour which changes according to the time (5pm = $5, 6pm = $6,...). There is a small menu that offers American comfort food with an Asian twist. I liked the Sichuan Burger with sweet potato fries which was spicy and perfect meat. My friends who ordered the Ribs where a bit disappointed as the side salad was almost non existing. It's definitely worth a re-visit but I hope that they change their menu from time to time, to keep customers entertained. Btw, music is perfect and fits the pleasant atmosphere.
it's an original place with amazing food and cocktails ... i will recommend easily this place to my friends ... if you come before 8pm you can enjoy the happy hour which is probably the best offer in this neighbour ... we had a Chai Margarita and Green TeA Old-fashionned, just perfect ! see you soon
The folks at Phat Cat are friendly, the space is cool, and their cocktails are cute and fairly interesting. The food was a letdown - we expected the ribs and the Sichuan burger (both chef recommendations) to be hits, considering it's a small, focused menu, and we were one of just three occupied tables on a Saturday night, but both meats were not done properly and the strange sambal/aioli sauce for the burger was sour and thin. That was a downer. The drinks were cute, but not as inventive or magical as the descriptions and also not as great as what you can get elsewhere in the area.
Tried the valentine's menu this visit. Not nice at all. We all agreed that we should have ordered alacarte instead. There was also lack of attention to details, like insufficient utensils provided, desserts served without utensils too. 90% of the time, no one would top up your water if you didn't ask. Well, I would still come back but order alacarte, coz I really loved the regular dishes on the menu. And I hope the service would improve.
I Went with my brother to try Phat Cat Laundry for the first time. The food and cocktails were amazing - will definitely be coming back!
