If you’re looking for a burger joint with great fries, look no further!
The Ambience, Service and Staff
Five Guys is a popular American burger joint that has an outlet at Plaza Singapura. With Singapore restricting dining while managing Covid-19, I decided to grab a meal there one evening. I walked in, and found the restaurant quite full while implementing social distancing measures. The menu is printed above the point of sale, and the staff take your order and issue you with a number.
The restaurant is clean, brightly lit, and decorated in the bright, bold colours of an American diner. They boast the best fries of any burger joint, and proudly display where the potatoes they’re using on the day are from. (On the day, it was from the Netherlands).
As I searched for a table while getting my fountain drink filled, one of the staff who was wiping down tables helped me get a table.
My food was ready in about 7 minutes of placing my order.
I ordered the bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions, tomatoes, relish, lettuce, jalapenos and A1 sauce, along with a side of Five Guys Style seasoned fries, and a bottomless fountain drink.
Their preparation is quick, and once your order is ready, they shout your order number out for you to come and collect your food. Regardless of whether you eat in or takeaway, your order is provided in a brown paper bag. The fries come in a cup, and are ample in portion size (there was about half as much inside the bag as there was inside the cup when I took it out). The burger comes wrapped in foil, and is juicy and well cooked. Their fries are definitely better than your regular burger joint.
The Price Point
My meal for one set me back by just over $30. As burgers go, this is a little on the pricey side, but you do get a great quality burger in a well-maintained, casual burger joint.
The Final Verdict
Five Guys has a lovely feel to it. They serve great, hot, fresh burgers, have amazing fries, and bottomless refills. Their staff are friendly and courteous, and the establishment is kept clean. It’s a great place for a quick bite – particularly if you are feeling like spoiling yourself a bit!
