Two Fat Men walk into a bar, one orders up a large platter of Thai food, the other massive western style burgers. Both slug back fine craft beers and premium whiskies and make dessert of bar bites. No joke. Both of these larger gentlemen have a home at this East Coast Road bar and hangout despite their different culinary preferences, a rare example in Singapore of a public house that can confidently offer a blend of east and west with some liquid refreshment in between, keeping things well lubricated. Just a couple of blocks west from the intersection with Still Road, Two Fat Men is one larger than life venue with a menu to match that’s set to become a big star in the East Coast neighbourhood.
On the Thai side of things at Two Fat Men’s East Coast Road premises, one of the best ways to get a good feel for what this bar and restaurant offers is to get a hold of the TFM Platter, featuring three all-time favourites from the Southeast Asian selection this powerhouse kitchen pumps out: grilled pork neck with tamarind sauce, deep-fried fish sauce-seasoned squid rings with a Thai seafood chilli sauce and skinny chicken wings. You can also get the grilled pork neck in sandwich form for a more western style bite, complete with charred bacon and cheese – an example from the regularly changing specials board that guests should make sure they take note of every time they prop themselves up at this bar in Singapore’s East Coast community. As for Two Fat Men’s ever-popular burgers, there’s a solid triumvirate to choose from: the Plain Joe flame-grilled beef burger, the Cajun-marinated chicken burger in ciabatta, and the fish burger. Top it up with cheese, bacon or egg to get the nod from Two Fat Men – always with eyes bigger than their stomachs, if you can believe it – and pair them up with a bag of fries, crispy chicken skin (beer’s best friend), or deep-fried tofu. As for those drinks, this bar in Singapore’s East Coast has a kaleidoscopic range of microbrews and craft beers to choose from – the Australian Break Water pale ale from Gage Roads Brewing Company and Battersea’s Rye and IPA from London are just a few of the bottles on offer.
