FAT BOY'S HAWAIIAN STYLE GOURMET PLATE LUNCH


FAT BOY'S 
KEEAUMOKU STREET
HONOLULU, HAWAII 

A trip to Wall Mart on Keeaumoku Street ended up at Fatboy's after we saw the fresh new exterior from the highway.  While I am not a big fan of Hawaiian Style Plate Lunches we wanted to give Fatboy's a try.  The new interior is modern and clean.  You order at the window and then take a seat.  The food comes to you by a staff member in minutes.  We tried the Kalua Pork and Cabbage Plate ($7.95).   This is a nice portion of Kalua Pork served with cabbage, two scoops rice and tiny salad.  My girls seemed to like it.  I noticed that a lot of patrons were eating the Sesame Garlic Chicken which is their most popular item.  This must be good because people were finishing the plate.  Also saw a nice plate of Pork Chops that looked good.  I could not make up my mind on a Plate Lunch so I tried the Cheeseburger ($4.30).  Came with large cut fries for additional $1.75.  The burger came out looking great.  I took one bite and lost my appetite.  The hamburger patty was one of those cheap frozen types you get in the frozen foods section in a large box.  Really ruined the burger.  The fresh tomato, lettuce, onion and grilled bun were good.  The patty just killed everything.  Next time I will try the Sesame Garlic Chicken.  Fatboy's serves up a nice breakfast menu all day long.  Gourmet Plate Lunches include; Chicken Katsu, Fried Chicken, Teriyaki Chicken, Pork Chops, Local Sytle Kalbi,  BBQ Mix Plate, Beef Stew, Fried Fish and Seafood.  Special Plates include; Rosemary and Alaea Crusted Prime Rib, Dijon Crusted Rack of Lamb, Local Grass Fed Ribeye, Saute Garlic Shrimp and Grilled Local Fish.  They also have Bento Boxes, Burgers and Sandwiches.  They have a "Crazy Burger" with Bacon, Fried Hot Dog, Crispy Fried Onions and Potato Macaroni Salad.  Also Teriyaki, Mushroom Swiss, Kim Chee and Pineapple Cheezy burgers.  Just hope they don't use those same frozen hamburger patties for these burgers too.  I will try other items at Fatboy's before knocking them just because of the frozen hamburger patty.  Looks like they do a good job and use quality ingredients.  Will return again.


Fatboy's menu shows that they have been in business since 1999 and now have three locations on Oahu.  They have re-branded themselves into a Gourmet Plate Lunch establishment and are trying to perfect a great affordable meal in a fresh and trendy atmosphere filled with Aloha.  They use local ingredients whenever possible.  All good so please use some local beef and make a "fresh" burger!
