Spicy chow, sketchy decor and vintage porn: Stylesight takes a visit to Fatty Crab’s latest outpost in Hong Kong.
Follow the blue neon sign down the “sketchy” stairs to the latest outpost from Fatty Crab, in Hong Kong’s Central district. Joining the original NYC location and its second St. John spot, this latest Fatty Crab serves up the same spicy, complex Malaysian/Thai/Indonesian/Vietnamese-inspired cuisine as its counterparts, in a dimly lit, purposely seedy atmosphere. Check out the custom graffiti and vintage pornography that decorates the walls of this deceptive new restaurant while you use your hands (Malaysian style) to chow down on Fatty Crab menu staples such as Watermelon Pickle & Crispy Pork, Fatty Duck, ‘Cue Smoked Ribs, and of course, freshly-caught Chili Crab. All condiments and pastes used in cooking are made by hand “with love…a lotta love,” and the drink menu is filled with cocktails and wines that complement the unique food at this new Fatty Crab. —Ashley Churchill
