The King of Prussia Mall, and its brand new foodie-annex Savor, is hotter than ever after Kevin Sbraga’s southern comfort restaurant The Fat Ham opened this morning.
University City’s Fat Ham sprouted at a time when Nashville hot chicken wasn’t the trendy menu item it is today — really, Southern cuisine at large was pretty under-represented in Philly before Sbraga turned the city onto it. Now, you can find the Nashville staple at Spruce Street Harbor Park’s Lil’ Fat Ham, and, as of 11:30 a.m. today, at 350 Mall Boulevard in the King of Prussia Mall.
Contrary to University City’s low-country stylings, Eimer Design went for something a bit more modern for its King of Prussia location, a design “reminiscent of modern Charleston.” So, instead of walls decorated with wooden folding chairs, look for red-stained rafters draped with string lights, a sleeker look with light woods mixed with aged metals.
The menu (below) is sort of an abbreviated version of the original, still offering the heavy-hitters, i.e. benne seeded mustard greens, hot chicken, and shrimp & grits, but with smaller and more casual with a section dedicated to sandwiches (think Carolina pulled pork and Texas brisket).
Hours go from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., daily, except for Sunday when they open noon and close at 6 p.m.
