We're big fans of the OG Fatt Puditt in Soho, and as they've opened a second location in Covent Garden, we guess we're not the only ones. Hey, once you've tasted their crackling spinach, there's no going back.
The Fatt Pundit menu is always firey, vibey & authentic AKA Indo-Chinese at their best. For their second home, they borrowed a few of the classic dishes from the Soho site, but made sure to give this new joint its own personality with fresh plates, including a bowl of sweet, sizzling prawns served up with celery, szechuan chilly and mixed peppers; and Rabbit Wantons, packed with burnt garlic, black bean, and chilli oil. BarChick couldn't get enough of the creamy and rich Monkfish Curry which we soaked up with the fluffy burnt ginger rice, while the crispy veg fritters in a sticky ginger glaze had us questioning why can't vegetables taste this good all the time?
There's also a sick new beverage concept, with a menu of signature cocktails inspired by the flavours and spices of India and China including the White Tiger cocktail, a refreshing and elegant mix of London Dry Gin, Elderflower, Lychee Juice, Proseccoplus. They're also rocking an unusual wine list celebrating small, organic producers from all corners of the world. Needless to say, these guys have pulled off one hell of an encore.
