Well, Carl's Jr. is probably in my opinion the best fast food burger chain!

Yes, it is pricey compared to MacDonald's and even Burger King but come on, i feel its the only one serving authentic burgers as their beef patties taste flavorful unlike the other two which simply feels frozen...

A meal costs about $12-$15 depending on what you order but i assure you that you'll be full by the end of it, even with a huge appetite like mine. I always order the Thickburgers and i personally favourite the Portobello :)

One thing i note is that the Guacomole burger doesn't taste like guacamole... but oh wells the burger was still great!

In addition, it has free flow of its salsa full of tomatoes and onions which i love as well as drinks including fresh brewed tea and lemon to make your own iced lemon tea haha.

My favourite side has got to be the Fried Zucchinis though you have to top up some money ; they're something special. I don't really fancy the Beef Chilli Cheese Fries though ; its soggy and taste like mutton curry in my opinion :x

Great place to hang out as well despite its noisy surroundings and just chat with friends because of its free flow haha and after the burger you won't wanna move around as well ;)

initiative lacking

in all fairness, having visited the joints at marina square & nex, i've been won over by some of there burgers in the past months. however, this visit at plaza singapura disappointed me big time.

thanks to the convenience of BBM, i managed to link up with JWNY for dinner at plaza singapura, and we settled for a meal at this joint. typical of JWNY, he needed a little more time to decide what he'd order, so i went ahead to get my order & payment placed. as usual, number tags issued, get out beverage, have our seat & wait to be served.

3min passed, JWNY's meal was served. we continued our chatter thinking my meal shouldnt take too long to be served. not keeping JWNY waiting, i told him to start on his meal, while we continued our chatter about work & life in general. (glancing across, some other patrons that came after us had their meals served shortly after they were seated too). somehow, my upsized carl's catch took a little longer than expected. i prompted the service staff, to which they hurried the kitchen.

not watching the time, JWNY was already on his last few bites on his meal, and mine was still nowhere in site. a hungry man is an angry man, furied by the long delay, i stormed to the cashier with my number tag, only to find the staff having a good time chatting among themselves, while a whole lot of burgers were sitting idle on the respective trays, waiting to be served to the customers.

headed back to the seat, it quite clear that my face was black as the kiwi's jersey. i started on the meal, only to find that the fries & burger have already chilled. the initial thought was to head back to the counter to demand my hot meal, but fearing that the reheating may end up ready to serve for supper, i decided to leave it as is.

if ever i were to visit any carl's jr joint... plaza singapura... too bad so sad, never again.

a cheesy tale

I like to go to carls junior, order a small dirnk and a beef chilli cheese fries (which i so affetionally refer it to as BCCF) and sit there people watch. I know, its not starbucks, but I get a food and a drink for the price of a coffee at starbucks hahaha!

I love Carls Junior's salsa! The chopped up onion and tomato and whatever is so refreshing to eat with the fries! After some meat, you gotta have some veggies right! but i personally don't eat their set meals cos its too expensive... and too much.

their bacon and cheese burger is nice, but one person eat will puke cos too cheesy and its cream cheese kind of cheesy not pizza kind of cheesy.

Portobello mushroom thickburger simply stole my heart...

I heart Carl's Jr! The portobello mushroom burger is simply mouth-watering and when the thickburger line was introduced? I'm smitten beyond anything! I have to have the portobello mushroom thickburger! NOW!

Charboiled 100% Angus beef patty with delectable chunky portobello mushrooms with melty cheese, fresh onions, lettuce & tomato in a burger the size of your face is just pure joy.. Not that i'm a food snob but really.. angus beef patty wins hands down in a burger.. any burger. The beef patty is very juicy n tender and makes a simple burger great! I lurvve mushrooms n as far as mushroom goes... i heart portobellos n the generous chunks in e tasty sauce with melted cheese is absolutely alluring...Plus fresh onions n tomatoes n lettuce? This is one great burger!

Overall Carl's Jr is my favourite burger joint beating all fast food n gourmet burgers out there... The burgers are executed with quality & fresh ingredients and is juz simply good.

Great THICKburgers

We had the THICKburgers and they were fabulous! It's how normal burgers are supposed to be! Not squashed, flattened and dry. But thick, juicy, tasty, moist!

The THICKburgers are the only burgers from a fastfood joint worth having. And Carl Jr cooked it perfectly. Great fries to go with the burger.

I wouldn't go to any other fastfood joint for a burger other than Carl Jr for their THICKburger. All other burgers are a waste of time!

Nothing special about the joint. Sticky mess on the floors and tables, you only get served when they take your order and deliver to your table. It's in the middle of a busy place and they're pretty busy themselves, so seating is a hit or miss.

Sorry no photos as we had to eat and run to make space for someone else to sit down. There're people standing all around you, glaring at you when you eat!
