Foursquare Tips

  • Bill Addison: "Arroz gordo, a specialty of Macanese home cooks and Fat Rice's namesake dish, forever dispels the notion that fusion cuisine began with wasabi mashed potatoes and its horrific ilk."
  • Don't mess around - get the portuguese chicken and don't look back. It's that good.
  • First time here. They really changed the space, very modern. Food was exceptional! Split dishes to taste more!! Staff informative & attentive. A bit pricey, treat yourself.
  • Fat Rice dish is a must. Phenomenal take on the Chinese staple of wintermelon soup. Smoked tofu was spot on.
  • Try the Macanese Egg Tarts - "Pastel de Nata". The outside is a flakey puff pastry that's crispy. The top is caramelized, but the inside is this soft and smooth rich custard, like a crme brule.
  • Fat Rice has gained a cult following for its innovative Macanese dishes. Those who brave the hours-long wait are rewarded with shareable plates that take cues from India, Southeast Asia, and Portugal.
  • The arroz gordo at Fat Rice is one of the 100 best things we ate this year. http://tmout.us/rLOtk
  • Awesome Food!!!
  • Wanna try something new? Treat yourself to Redeye Chicago's restaurant of the year, Fat Rice. Make sure to share each dish so you can try more of the exceptional fusion food.
  • Fat rice serves a cake that grows and evolves with the season, incorporating fruits of the summer's bounty. One day it will be garnished and/or flavored with mango, the next rhubarb and berries
  • You really should be ordering the arroz gordo, but if you're just not that hungry then try one of the fish stews along with a generous pour of fortified wine.
  • Don't forget the pot stickers, the curry vegetable pot, piri piri chicken and of course FAT RICE!
  • Portuguese chicken amazing!!!!
  • The food here is fantastic! Get there early if you want to get a table.
  • Gets very busy very quickly; ask for piri piri chicken as soon as you walk in; it'll run by the time you're seated
  • Welcome to the neighborhood Fat Rice - with wide open arms!
  • Its noisy. Its crowded. You sit with strangers, contemplating the unfamiliar, while servers gently guide you through Abraham Conlons lively, Macau-inspired dishes.
  • Bacalao espiritual was the best of our dinner at the Fat Rice. Arroz Gordo is not so spectacular, neither the potstickers...just ok. You can skip desserts.
  • Great service and very accommodating to vegetarian needs (had a vegetarian in our party). Lots of in season specials and the cauliflower dish is amazing.
  • The namesake arroz gordo is essential, but so are the lacy-edged potstickers and piri piri chicken, so youd better come hungry.
