Another new outlet of Big Fat has opened up at GK 2 M Block market, and this one serves up both- their delicious sandwiches as well as pizzas. This outlet is bigger than the other two, and follows the same concept of tying up with a coffee brand and a bakery (ME:ette Patisserie & Bakery).For the sandwiches, you can choose from a wide range of options for fillings as well as the bread- from sesame to sourdough, rye, multigrain and even gluten free options. We went with a classic- The American Grilled Cheese. The sandwich was served in the shape of a heart, and the bread was slathered with a tasty herb butter and grilled well to get a nice crisp texture. The sandwich was filled with a mix of cheddar, mozzarella, gouda and bechamel, and was really cheesy and creamy, with a lovely cheese pull.In their pizza section, you have the option of going for Neapolitan crust, thin crust or deep dish. This time around, we went with the thin crust, since we’d already tried the other two. The pizza we chose was Under the Sun, and it was coated with a tangy, delicious marinara sauce, topped with juicy, flavorsome sundried tomatoes, black olives, red chili and fresh mozzarella. The crust was cooked perfectly to get a crispy texture all around, with slightly charred sections, which added a nice smoky flavor.
They also make their pastas in-house, and we went with the Spaghetti in Basil Pesto Sauce. We’ve tried their basil pesto in one of their sandwiches previously, and boy, do they do a mean pesto- fresh, zingy and packed with flavor. The pasta was coated with the same fresh pesto, some cream, roasted garlic, and roasted walnuts for crunch, and of course, topped with some grated parmesan cheese. The only thing we’d change here is to reduce the quantity of the cream in the sauce, to let the pesto shine a bit more. The pasta was served with a charred garlic bread, which was soft and pillowy on the inside and had a crisp outer layer, with a robust garlic flavor.The service was also fast and efficient, and overall, we really enjoyed this carb and fat-laden meal!
