My first time at the fine Malaysian BBQ joint Fatty Cue was three weeks ago during brunch. Unfortunately, I have not dined here for dinner yet, but I'm craving to, because this Williamsburg, Brooklyn spot serves one heck of a brunch.
The ribs ($12) at Fatty Cue are astonishing. Heritage pork meat, smoked palm syrup, and Indonesian long pepper, makes for some of the tastiest, flavorful, succulent, and best ribs around. Order them.
Fatty Cue's version of bacon, egg, and cheese ($9), served with house smoked coriander bacon, two fried eggs, and smoked cheese, on a Kaiser roll is amazing. Could have been the best I've had.
Flapjacks ($10) served with maple syrup and bacon, were okay, but boring, and nothing special.
I believe last year New York Magazine named Fatty Cue's smoked brisket sandwich ($14), the number one sandwich (on a list of 100) in New York. I can see why. It is fabulous. Served with chili jam, aioli, pickled red onion, house smoked cheese, and salad, it has unbelievable, well-balanced flavor. The chili jam adds an amazing sweet kick of spiciness that will leave your taste buds in awe.
Fatty Cue just gives Brooklyn another reason for greatness. I live in New York City, and my heart is always on the island of Manhattan, but sometimes fooling around ain't so bad.
