Tracing the origins of Gong Cha dates back to ancient China, when teas of the highest quality were offered as tribute to the Emperor. With the same philosophy in mind, Gong-Cha aims to provide the best quality tea and beverages to its customers.
My bf and I went down to Carl's Jr for dinner specifically to try the Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger after seeing the ad at the busstop. Unfortunately, they ran out of bread! Sigh. I was a little taken aback as well that the seat we chose had a clean table, but an utterly dirty seating - crumbs all over it!
Anyway, we had to make do with the Portobello Mushroom Thickburger and The Western Bacon ThickBurger. Luckily, both were good - as we expected. They did not look as appealing as advertised, but the taste made up for it. We also had chili cheese fries, which was delightfully delicious and had good portions of the chili cheese - unlike KFC's "Cheese Fries" with miserable portions of the cheese. Don't be mistaken though, chili cheese fries are not exactly cheese fries drenched in chili sauce! Haha. It actually taste somewhat like curry with good portions of minced meat too. The aftertaste is equally yummy!
I'm glad we still stuck to Carl's Jr though I really hope they would not run out of stock of the sourdough bread the next time I visit!
Carl's Jr is famous for their larger than usual burgers. It's cost a bit more but it's quite worth it in my opinion.
If you had eaten in any Carl's Jr restaurant before, you will know that it's gonna get messy. The wrapper they used to wrap the burger simply melt away after a few minutes and you will always end up in a mess. Luckily, they place a big box of serviette on every table. It won't take long to realize that it's done on purpose!
Singaporean is always looking for a bargain and here's one: free refill for your drink. So it's don't really make sense to up-size to a large cup. If you are a student, simply buy a cup of drink and stay there the entire day. If you brought along children, you can ask for smaller cups.
Their freshly cut fries still have their skins attached. It taste better some how. Go figure.
There's one particular distinguishing factor that I have yet to observe in another fast food restaurant: low-carb burgers. You can order any burger and ask them to convert it to a low-carb version. They will promptly remove the bread and replaced them with large pieces of lettuces.
