Having driven past Fat, Fried and Tasty or F.A.T many times, we decided to try it out for dinner one night after work.
The huge wall mural and branding was enough to lure us in. As a vegetarian, I ordered the Fake Breasts burger which was made out of soy beans so tasty and delicious. My partner couldn't resist getting the real crispy Southern fried chicken burger served on a crispy tiger bun. We shared a generous serving of fries and a huge Milo milkshake. He is a burger addict, so I was keen to hear his verdict - he gave it the thumbs up! The American cheese and special sauces make for such a flavour explosion!
It has a cool street vibe, with locals rocking up in their hoodies and skateboards. Fat Fried and Tasty specialise in Southern American style fried chicken with an Aussie twist. A recipe that has been passed down in the family.
Established in 2015 by Terrence Farrugia, Jonathan, Andrew and Freda Ioannou in Brunswick East. Popular menu items include Chicken & Waffles, Hot Chicken and of course their Original Chicken.
