So my friends who had went to the US for exchange were raving about how good the Wendy's there was, but I think the word "disappointment" would still be too mild to describe their visit to Singapore's first branch at Lau Pa Sat. But as they say, taste can be quite subjective, so I decided to head there for my first bite of Wendy's - the burger of course.
McDonald's, Carl's Junior, Burger King, KFC, MOS Burger, Long John Silver's - they all have the ubiquitous french fries. The only difference? All of them fare a hundred times better. The fries here meanwhile were darker, oilier and thinner. Eeks.
The burger moment. The tease of something grand with that shiny foil wrap. The smacking of lips. Those salivating seconds as you free your burger...
What. This is it? The patty looks (McDonald-ly) thin, and even drier than most burger patties that I've seen. In fact, it is drier, a not to mouth-watering affair surely. Requires huge gulps of coke to swallow it down. If I had to compare, I'd say give me Carl's Jr anytime.
About $9 for an upsized meal. This post features the Double Stack burger.
18 Raffles Quay, Lau Pa Sat Festival Market.
