The Adventures of Fat Rice

Fat Rice - Facebook

Tune in to The Adventures of Fat Rice when the Chicago restaurant pops up at Tres Gatos for a cookbook-inspired dinner. Chef and author Abraham Conlon will be at the JP spot on Tuesday, December 13th, joining resident chef Stephen Marcaurelle for a menu of Fat Rice-inspired plates. The restaurant – and the cookbook – focus on Macanese cuisine, a blend of southern Chinese and Portuguese tastes. Dishes like chilli prawns and roasted bone marrow will be available a la carte or as a five-course tasting menu for $90 per person. Arrozo gordo (or fat rice) stars as the entrée with curried chicken thighs, bbq pork, linguica, clams and more. Head over before dinner for a 5:30pm author meet-and-greet and to pick up a copy of the signed cookbook at 10% off.
