We were delighted to return to the Time Square food forum and partake in a feast at the Fat Pig, a casual restaurant and bar that's helmed by celebrity British chef Tom Aikens, who recently prepared a wonderful evening menu for us at The Pawn.
In addition to a versatile menu which features locally-sourced pork and follows the theoretical nose-to-tail approach, the Fat Pig kitchen has started a brand new brunch menu that is served on the weekends from 11am to 6pm.
Indulge in a gorgeous Belgian waffle or eggy French toast, both are topped perfectly with a scoop of smooth vanilla cream and crispy maple-glazed bacon.

French toast, maple bacon & sweetened pumpkin
We love the barbecued pork ribs with a sticky sweet and sour glaze as well as the deliciously tender pork belly that's cooked in a brown sauce with an interesting addition of dried longan fruit.
The sides are typical sausage rolls wrapped in a golden puff pastry, as well as an extra creamy, comforting, breadcrumb-topped macaroni and cheese...

We also tried the crispy croquette that is made with pig’s head, which was completely out of this world!
Between the two mini brioche sliders, the pulled pork impressed us a bit more due to its smoky savouriness and the beer-battered onion rings that added a nice crunchy bite.

Finally, we pampered ourselves with some of the new desserts including a chocolate caramel tart and a super indulgent, smoked bacon ice cream sundae for a final finishing touch. It had smoked bacon ice cream, caramel sauce, brownie bites and more vanilla cream. This one is a must try!
After such an outstanding brunch experience, We're loving The Fat Pig more and more and will be back before long.
