Many of my blogger peers have talked about the first Everything with Fries outlet at Joo Chiat Road but few have made a visit to the newer branch at Holland Village. Situated next to Breko Cafe and opposite Wala Wala Cafe Bar, this modest eatery has been my favourite lunch hangout in the past couple of weeks, largely because of the peaceful atmosphere, decent food and cheery service. And no, it doesn't come with any massage services like the pictures you see above the signboard, those belong to the spa on the floor above.
As always, I do my "homework" online before venturing to some place new, and many of the online reviews haven't been the most encouraging towards EWF's beef Cheese Burger. Since I happened to have a meat craving that afternoon (as I do ever so often), I put my money on the Lamb Burger instead. Good news, the burger was good! :)
A thick and juicy lamb patty that has been marinated with herbs and spices. It may not look large on some angles, but it will fill you up enough. I did away with the salad (what a surprise) and asked for a double serving of fries - this is after all Everything with Fries right? I didn't like the artificial-tasting "garlic and herbs" flavour but the Curry Fries hit the spot nicely.
Tandoori Chicken Sandwich
So as a testament to my approval of the Curry Fries, I went for a double serving of it on my next lunch visit. I think the manager recognised me well enough, especially since I'd always promised to try the desserts only to end up too full to order anything at all. My point is, the mount of fries developed quite a peak on my second visit here, and being the greedy potato-lovin' person that I am you can say I was quite pleased indeed.
I especially liked the juicy chunks of tandoori chicken in the sandwich, and they tasted quite good with the slices of onions inside as well as with the curry fries. I can't say the same for the tangy (mustard-based?) sauce though, it was a bit sour and I couldn't put a name to it. Thank goodness for the well-prepared chicken, it saved the sandwich.
The highlight of it all, however, is not actually the fries, but this lovely Nutella Shake. Now, I've had many milkshakes claiming to be the true "Nutella" milkshake, but I think this blend from EWF has set the standard of complete Nutella-inspired sin and indulgence.
Thick milkshake with the full Nutella flavour. This is heavenly.
Excellent. Cheery, bright and friendly service.
