Everything with Fries in Orchard Central is one place in Singapore where there is great fast food like nice burgers. I did not want to go there to eat at first when I looked at the restaurant as I did not prefer fast food. However, after a while, I thought that there was nothing wrong with having burgers and other stuff there. Also, I wanted to have a quick meal as it was getting late. The food at the fast food restaurant could be affordable too. Hence, I headed there to sample the things on offer.
When I stepped into the place, I thought of having only a burger initially. Then, I decided to have more than the burger. At Everything with Fries, anything can come with fries. The fries are special as they are available in different flavours everyday. To me, a burger alone is not enough for a fast food meal. Adding the fries is sufficient to complete such a meal. If that was not enough, I felt like getting a drink as well. A drink is optional but it goes well with the food in a meal. It can quench one's thirst before, while and after eating. I believed that I had a good chance to have the fries and the drink too given the budget I had. Hence, I ordered the set meal which also consists of a soft drink other than the burger and the fries as I thought this was the cheapest option for me.
The burger and the fries are served on grease-resistant paper in a black food container. The paper is like the kind used in most fast food chains.
Now, on to the burger. It was the tandoori chicken burger I had. The burger bun looks like either a muffin or it is made using cornmeal. Not only is it very crispy, it is also softer and chewier than those from fast food restaurants like KFC and McDonald's. The patty is a chicken fillet that looks like KFC's Roasta fillet. It is bigger and thicker than the Roasta fillet other than tender. The chicken is covered in a sauce that looks like curry in the way that it is orange and contains bits of chilies. It gives the burger a spicy flavour and tastes a bit sweet. The vegetables are fresh. The lettuce and the onions are crunchy. The tomatoes are soft and sweet. The onions not only are a bit sweet and spicy but give a burning sensation that can numb the taste buds as well.
Next, the fries I had which are the garlic fries. The fries are very crispy and filling. They are coated with garlic powder which makes the fries look orange red. The powder adds a spicy taste to the fries. This makes the fries flavourful that they can be eaten on its own.
Last but not least, the soft drink. I had the sparkling apple drink for the beverage of my meal. It is prepared on the spot by mixing soda water with apple juice drink. The drink is fizzy and refreshing. However, what is disappointing is that there is too much soda water in the drink, so the bitterness of the soda water masks the sweetness of the ready-to-drink apple juice. Hence, it tastes very bitter and a bit sweet.
The restaurant has a shelf inside near the counter where people obtain disposable utensils from. This makes things like forks and knives more readily available. It is better than having to go to the counter to ask for utensils which can take a bit of trouble.
There is good food and good service in this place. This fast food restaurant is one good place for fast food meals. There are burgers, fries and others the restaurant offers such as cakes and milkshakes I may think of having when I dine there another time. The sparkling apple drink needs to be improved.
