Popular burger joint Five Guys rumoured to be opening in Singapore

Sources: https://www.timeout....ingapore-051419

With rumours flying that popular burger joint from Virginia Five Guys is about to open in Singapore late this year, the local food scene has been set abuzz. If confirmed, this will only be the chain's second outlet in Asia. The first was opened in Hong Kong last year to much fanfare and snaking queues. We can expect more of the same in Singapore if the waiting times for Shake Shack are any indication.

 

The cult-favourite American brand is renowned for its huge and messy signature double beef patty burgers wrapped in foil, fresh cut crispy fries drenched in peanut oil and milkshakes so thick you can eat them with a spoon.

 

Toppings for burgers are free (a magic word for most Singaporeans), with options like grilled onions, jalapeño peppers, relish and more – anyone can appreciate a burger with all the works. Vegetarians also have options like the veggie sandwiches, which come without a patty.

 

Instead, they include grilled mushrooms and any other toppings you desire. 

 

Shake Shack, Burger & Lobster, and now Five Guys? We wait patiently with extra serviettes.

 

 

So this is how they are going to filled up all the empty shopping malls. :that-dood-is-up-to-something:

Wow. But if they're not using fresh ingredients like in US then no point.

My heart just groaned.

Milkshakes so thick u can eat it with a spoon, fries drenched in peanut oil (those with allergy better beware).

Fortunately, i am not a burgers fan. All that processed meat and stuff will be having happy hours every minute clogging up my system. Not the first fast food and won't be the last to do so.

The youngsters of today are spoilt for choices of fast junk food. Think its a plot to take them out thru their stomach? 😅😅😅 kidding.

Safe ride
Cheers

Not much point waiting in queue unless they open multiple outlets.

The wkend article on Today said the fast food business grew about 20+ to 30% while restaurants revenue dropped the opposite direction over the last couple of years.

Given how many F&B outlets there are on our tiny island, can see that fast food is the only one that's growing while everything else is at saturation point and subject to changing demographics and consumer tastes.

Must give a try before commenting. To make sure it's not hype.

 

It's a burger. What's not to like? The ones here are getting boring anyway.

In China, got this 蒸功夫 I thought not bad. All steamed and soup set meals. But then again, it's almost equivalent to our double-boiled soup and chai png stalls except they are air-conditioned fast food -style outlets.

Ironically, the bolehland one looks like a pirated one .. [laugh] The China one has been around for 10+ years liao, and not selling bao. They are styled like McDonald's fast food but selling set meal consisting of only steamed and boiled soup dishes. Similar to 老火汤, but fast food set up.

Yeah, our cai png is often called 快餐 or 自助餐 in China.

 

If you're in the Shanghai area, they also got something like cai png-style noodle, basically choose your own topping for your noodle and mix them up. More variety than SG mee pok or Japanese ramen.

In China, that one is 永和豆漿 (not the one in Geylang, and not the one in Taiwan which is original).

In SG, similar one would be Mr Bean lor. Though, I find it increasingly hard to get good yew cha kuay here. The good ones must queue early morning.
