Review - Fat Pigeon




A steady stream of tradies collecting food to-go clues me in that Fat Pigeon is already meeting a need in the Marrickville market. While the name, logo and font selection might have you screaming gentrification and cursing hipsters, what you will find within is surprisingly old-school.



In fact the only thing that takes it beyond the tiled Greek-run takeaway stores of my childhood memories is the addition of a few fancy high tables with bar stools, allowing you to choose to eat-in. The menu covers the same barbequed chooks, burgers, fat cut chips and beer-battered hoki fillets that I remember, albeit with local craft brewery Young Henrys providing the ale. You'll also note Fat Pigeon list provenance on the menu, with the free-range chooks coming from the Hunter Valley, and the burger mince sourced from free-range cattle in the Southern Highlands.



As well as the aforementioned battered'n'fried, you can consume your daily fish requirements in grilled Barramundi ($12.50) dished up with chips and salad from their fresh daily counter selections.



For their more well-to-do neighbours, they also offer up lobster mac’n’cheese and Po’Boys ($15.50/each). I tried the barbequed prawn version that offers up four grilled (tail-on) prawns on a crisp sesame-seed covered bread roll with shredded lettuce, creamy mayo. and a fresh pineapple chilli relish that lacked the expected kick. It’s a bit too light on the crustaceans to seem like good value – maybe that’ll learn me for getting a little bit fancy! However the warm welcome will likely see me return to try out their less highbrow selections in the future.
