its a testament of how great the ancient Greek architecture was that this archaic structure still draws gasps and feels entirely anachronistic as a public space. it’s just.. one of its kind in terms of an architectural statement.
where to eat
[fatboy's the burger bar, upper thomson road]
there’s quite alot of gems along upper thomson road, and this little burger shack is no exception – away from the hot sunday afternoon sun and tucked within the cool confines of a simple modern black decor, this place serves up decent burgers at decent prices. i cant comment on the other burgers, cos the 3 times I have been here, I have zoomed straight for this bleu cheese burger, because somehow the mix of black pepper and bleu cheese tastes wonderful and is a good excuse for a sinful once-in-a-while treat after tennis. the place is pretty no frills, ice water is self-service (no service charge) and well.. i couldn’t change my fries for something healthier. bummer. these places need to understand that sinful behavior needs to occur right beside redeeming behavior in order for one to feel less guilty – and offer salads and such as an alternative. that being said, the fries were nice as well, semi-crispy with enough potato filling within. you can order interesting dips and sauces to go with your fries but it comes at a cost.
all in all, a decent sinful treat joint. 7/10
