It's not good when the auntie started to recognize us and became chatty. Only then did I realize that we'd been too much of a regular lately. Somehow, we'd automatically head here once we met up, sometimes as often as twice a week.
No doubt the tasty burgers were a big draw but I highly suspected convenience was the main culprit, even though prices were a tad high.
After countless dinners, not only recently but we'd been eating here ever since the fast-food restaurant opened, we'd chomped our way through every burger on the menu, including the limited-time ones like grilled cheese bacon burger.
However, the portobello mushroom thickburger remained to be my favorite. Also belonging to the "thickburger" range was chili cheese burger, which strangely packed an unmistakably strong aroma of curry powder. Most likely to pander to local palates but I liked it nonetheless.
I found the selection of chicken burgers lacking compared to beef ones but I'd been hooked on carl's catch fish sandwich for when I didn't want red meat.
As if the burgers weren't already loaded with calories and fats, we always upsized one combo meal to get the irresistible criss-cut fries, while the refillable lemon tea never failed to hydrate both of us through the entire meal.
Unfortunately, too much of a good thing is bad, especially when the good thing is unhealthy. Just by thinking of the documentary Super Size Me is enough to give me the shudders. Gotta make a conscious effort to moderate our visits from now on!
