Fat Rice Restaurant Review

: A commingling of Portuguese fare and cuisines of its one-time colonies, the food at this Logan Square haunt from chef/owner Abraham Conlon offers a fusion experience at its best, all thanks to the X-Marx crew. Do not bypass the “arroz gordo,” a casserole brimming with crisp chicken thigh, Portuguese sausage, head-on prawns, clams and roast pork, all nestled amid a mess of olives, chiles, tomatoes and tea-soaked hard-boiled eggs on crisped rice. It’s a meal and then some. Snack on small, panchan-like dishes, or score something searingly Sichuanese or, perhaps, rich, coconut-sauced African chicken. End with pineapple upside-down cake with sweet cream, licorice plum and cinnamon taro. It'll all leave you pondering --- and craving --- for days to come. There’s a respectable, if somewhat limited, wine, beer and liquor selection for pairing.
