After trying a few things at the Lunar Markets, and still dying for more food, we decided to head for a substantial meal nearby. Seeing as we were directly across from The Star, we opted for one of our favourite restaurants; Fat Noodle.
Fat Noodle is a fast-paced Asian fusion restaurant headed by Vietnamese chef Luke Nguyen. Located in the casino of The Star, going to Fat Noodle makes you feel as though you’re in the middle of a Macau casino. The staff, the food, the music, everything here is fast. And just how I like it.
We started off with our favourite Vegetarian Spring Rolls ($11 – Glass Noodles, Wood Ear Mushrooms, Tofu and Carrots). Despite being an absolutely terrible photo (sorry!), the spring rolls, as usual, were absolutely delicious. Perfectly fried to crisp perfection, with the perfect balance of vegetables and noodles. Next up was the Salt & Pepper Silken Tofu ($12).
Now, to be modest, I love tofu. But holy shit this is next level deliciousness. The chilli and shallot garnish has the perfect spiciness, balancing perfectly against the soft and crispy tofu. This dish I could have ordered 12 servings and still wanted more. For the main, we opted for something light; the Jumbo Prawn and Seafood Hot Pot ($26).
This was light and refreshing, after two deep-friend entrees. However I did have to add sriracha to spice it up and add a little extra depth of flavour. The seafood was cooked perfectly, and was a nice light main to finish off the night.
Once again, Fat Noodle was an absolute winner. Every time I go I cannot fault their cuisine, and I will be back many times again. And who can fault a restaurant that’s open until 5am? X
