Finally tried one of the most famous Greek cuisine spots in Singapore after all the procrastination. Really wanted the seafood platter, but got really unlucky as all kinds of fish were out of the stock then - so went for the grilled meat board which had lamb, sirloin, and filet mignon. No regrets. The meats were all beautifully bursting with flavour. Preferred the filet mignon over the sirloin because it was more tender, and also less chewy. The greatest of the board was the lamb chop - tender, fall of the bone kind of deliciousness, with none of that overpowering gaminess.

If you’re a fan of grilled octopus, please put this on your bucket list. One of the best I’ve tried, even though it’s marinated simply with vinegar and olive oil. The smokiness from the grilled octopus was terrific, and the texture was impeccable - not too mushy or soft, nor too chewy (you know how octopus gets sometimes). Missing it already🫠

Greek macaroni, beef, baked with béchamel and a homemade Greek tomato sauce. Apart from the uniquely shaped tubular macaroni, the whole dish tasted like a classic lasagne🤭

One of the priciest salads I’ve had but I would totally get it again. Loved how the vegetables tasted so fresh and the combination of olive oil and vinegar struck such a delightful balance. And the feta cheese was really the showstopper in this bowl of salad, giving a creamy texture with a slight tinge of saltiness with every bit. This is coming from someone who thinks that salad is a waste of money!!!

A bit of the pricier side but I really enjoyed this fresh octopus leg that was well grilled. The chimichurri sauce added a slight spice to it, though nothing overpowering, but it complemented the freshness and fishiness of the octopus with its very refreshing, herbaceous flavour.

This was such a comforting bowl full of flavour. The pretty generous portion of chicken was so well seasoned, on top of the obviously msg-laden Indomie. Don’t misunderstand me, because I am not complaining. In fact, I knew what I was in for when I ordered the Indomie bowl — that I would be welcomed with a salt fest. I however, am a sucker for comfort food like Indomie and would have it almost any day, and so this bowl was just a huge delight to me. The star of this was not only the very flavourful chicken kebab, but also their epikebab sauce that is both creamy and spicy, truly elevating the flavours of the ingredients in this bowl.

This paled so much in comparison to the indommeat Chicken bowl. The rice was honestly a tad too dry to my liking and lacking in flavour. Similarly, the beef faced the same issue as well. The sauces — epikebab sauce and garlic mayo did help to mitigate the overall lacklustre taste.

Lillet rose, pink grapefruit liqueur, sumac cordial, ginger beer, bubbles. 
A light, sweet, and fruity bubbly cocktail which I really enjoyed. I personally already love ginger beer, so being able to have this in a concoction was interesting to me. Loved the nodes of berry-esque essence from the sumac cordial, and the slight acidity from the pink grapefruit. A very pretty and aesthetic pink drink as well!

Great vibes for drinks, not the best or mindblowingly good food (perhaps, unique), but atmosphere might get noisy and ruins the decadent bar lounge vibe it exudes.

Angostura 7 rum, amaretto, frangelico, espresso stout, peanut butter. 
Smooth and creamy cocktail with run that exudes a strong sweetness. Very light nodes of peanut butter essence, was hoping there could be more! Nonetheless, this creamy cocktail which can also give a good coffee kick is pretty fitting for a dessert, making it a sweet end to your meal.

The $29 Set Lunch gets your 2 appetisers, 2 palm-sized kebabs, and a dessert of the day. The pit roasted lamb kebab is pictured rightmost.

This was my favourite kebab of all, and primarily because the zhoug gave a flavourful spicy kick to it. The zhoug had an apparent cilantro and chilli taste to it, and it was further complemented with the fried garlic which gave the kebab a good crunch. Full of spice and flavour, as well as juicy enough lamb shreds.

The $29 Set Lunch gets your 2 appetisers, 2 palm-sized kebabs, and a dessert of the day. The Crispy seabass kebab is pictured in the middle.

This was decent but nothing worth shouting about. While the seabass had a batter that was crispy enough, it did not have much of the yoghurt spiced flavour in its batter as claimed. Felt more like normal fried fish tenders here. Perhaps the lemon mayo overpowered the batter here, but no complains because it was light and delicate, making it feel like a fish and chip it a wrap experience. The cabbage slaw gave a sourish complement to the kebab as well.

At this point I just want to say that I did not even order the crispy sea bass option, and that I actually requested for the prawn kebab. However, the staff who took my order was pretty… nonchalant and haphazard about serving my table. He did not seem to care while taking our order, and even though we ordered drinks, it was completely not keyed into the order and saw that people who came after us had their drinks served before us. We then enquired with the other staff and found out that they don’t even know what our order for the drinks were. The horror when I found out that this kebab was not prawn, but I was too done to even feedback, because honestly, I was pretty excited to patronise Fat Prince. The grandeur ambience was appealing, and despite booking it in advance for about 2 weeks, my reservation table was placed right smack at the side of the door where people were entering and exiting, staff were busy serving, and the bar was completely blocked by a wall and high seats. Damn. Could have just walked in to get better seats and service then.

Chicken shish kebab pictured leftmost.
Pickled carrot cucumber, fried shallot, toum
Got this chicken shish kebab as an ala carte to top up unto the $29 Set Lunch. It was my least favourite of the bunch. Not only was it dry, the toum did not add much flavour to it. I was hoping to taste some element of garlic in the toum but sadly I did not. It was also not given generously, so its creaminess was also short-lived in the already small kebab.
