I’m off on holiday for the next few weeks, so posts may be rare depending on how busy I am. If you want to keep abreast of my travels and all the amazing food I’ll be eating, follow my instagram. Due to my impending trip my fridge is empty, and I thought I’d use it as the perfect excuse to get take out, not that I need one, but you know. For some reason, Fat boy Sandwiches, really spoke to me. I had heard great things so ordered two for myself from Shuttle. If you are unfamiliar with Shuttle you really need to get on it, because it is an excellent service that goes to all my favourite restaurants and delivers their food right to my door for a mere 4,00 won. In fact if you are a first time customer you can get it delivered for free, by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
After perusing the sandwich choices I ordered the Beefeater (10,500). A medium-rare roast beef and Swiss cheese stuffed baguette. The internet had been abuzz about the size and taste of the Fat Boy sandwiches, so I was really looking forward to this bad boy. But when I unwrapped it, it was rather small in size in fact I could fit both pieces on the palm of my hand, and I like to think my hands are quite small and dainty. Despite the size, the sandwich was actually really good, lovely thin slivers of roast beef and a nice tang from the horseradish mayo. As you can see the sandwich has a good ratio of filling to bread, so maybe that is the what they are promoting, but honestly I was still hungry after finishing this one.
TFB wanted the test the muster of their ham so got the Classic Ham & Cheese (9,500). Deli Ham, American Cheese, Tomato, Mayo, Mustard, Romaine Lettuce, Campagnard bread. I am no fan of ham, especially hammy ham so only took a very small bite of this one. It seemed a big and hearty size though and was much bigger than mine. I didn’t really care for that kind of cheese, but TFB gobbled it up and deemed it satisfactory. The loftily piled layers of thinly sliced ham made a nice change from the faux ham offerings sometimes found in Korea. As ham and cheese sandwiches go, this one was not bad, a touch more mustard and big chunks of cheddar cheese and this could be a winner.
When I saw that they had Creamy Deli style Potato Salad (2,500) on the menu I was very pleased. I love potato salad, in fact I make it quite often myself, but it was nice to have it it as an add on, especially at such a great price. The tub itself was quite big and the portion generous. The flavour was pretty decent too, not as tangy as I tend to make mine, but pretty solid. It also helped fill up my exceedingly large belly.
Overall I liked the food I tasted, but the Fat Boy size was not big enough for the Fat girl. The ingredients are quality though and if you have a normal sized appetite you should be pretty pleased with what is on offer. Fat Boy Sandwiches are only available via Shuttle Delivery.
