The Fat Ham in King of Prussia
The King of Prussia Mall added a new addition to their Savor food court. Top Chef winner and restaurateur Kevin Sbraga opened a second location of The Fat Ham and it is now open for business. If you haven’t been to The Fat Ham, you can expect flavorful southern inspired dishes and yummy cocktails. I was lucky to have won reservations through a contest on Instagram to debut the menu in September before the official grand opening to the public. I never win anything, literally. So you can imagine how excited I was to win something that I totally enjoy, food!
Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a wonderful host who led me and my guest to our seats. Shortly, we were introduced to our server who was very pleasant and very informative of each item on their menu. It was only right to start my visit off with a drink. I chose the Memphis Mule. This drink consisted of basil & grapefruit vodka, citrus, and ginger beer. This drink was quite a pick-me-up! If you enjoy Moscow Mule’s then you have to try this one.
The first dish that I ordered was the Deviled Egg Toast. It had shaved chilies and pickled onions. I loved the texture. Deviled eggs are one of my faves! This was an excellent starter. Next, it was time for shrimp and grits! This dish included country ham, scallion and peanuts. Another great item on the menu. I’ve tasted a few shrimp and grits dishes before, but I can honestly say that this was my favorite shrimp and grits dish by far. It was filled with so much flavor that it blew me away as soon as I tasted it. I should’ve ordered one to go! Now here's everyone’s favorite, chicken and waffles! The chicken was fried perfectly, the skin was crispy, the meat was tender and the it definitely wasn’t bland! The pairing with the waffle was fantastic. The waffle had a citrus sage butter and syrup. YUMMY!!!
After all this eating, of course a few more drinks had to be ordered. If you enjoy fruity drinks, then the Low Country Punch is for you. It’s made with Jamaican Rum, Cognac, Madeira, Citrus. A few of these and you’ll need an Uber or a Lyft to get home, haha! The next drink ordered was the Stars Fell on Alabama. This was a strong one, I would say it’s more of a manly drink and not for the light-weight drinker. It’s made with Bourbon, Orange Flower, Bitters, absinthe. Both are great items on the beverage menu.
I wanted to try one of the side dishes while I still had a little bit of room left in my tummy! I went with the Baked Macaroni & Cheese topped with Ritz Cracker crumbs. Whenever a place makes their baked mac and cheese with REAL cheese, then you get the thumbs up in my book! Lastly, there was dessert. By now I had trouble breathing with everything I’ve been tasting! When the food is good, you literally just want to eat it ALL! HAHA! Anyways, for dessert I ordered the Peanut Butter Banana Pudding. I loved how it was served in a little cute mason jar! It added a nice rustic flair to the presentation. The pudding was rich and sweet. I wouldn’t change anything about it!
