Carl's Jr in Singapore!

Sourdough Bacon Cheeseburger and Chili Cheese French Fries

Carl's Jr finally made it out to Singapore a couple months ago...and I finally made it out there today. It's surprisingly true to the real thing back home (West Coast), including the free refills (rare in Singapore) as well as the little number tags (remember how everyone in college used to steal #69?). The taste was pretty much the same thing too, with most of the signature menu items. The Sourdough Bacon Cheeseburger used the cool round sourdough bread, and the chili cheese fries were surprisingly hot and tasty - I wolfed it all down.

The only downer for me was the fact that my sandwich was a bit cold - and it came out really quick too, implying that it was pre-cooked, unlike that ad campaign they did back home with the song "oh won't you please...wait a little longer" (meaning they only throw your patty on the grill when you order it, and that it's worth it to wait a little longer for a better taste).

And on the note of the menu above, actually there was one big difference - the Six Dollar Burger (which I thought was overrated anyway) is called the Super Star (otherwise it'd be called the Sing Ten Dollar Burger?? ha ha). And to orient locals to the menu (no pun intended), the cashiers interestingly ask, "are you looking for beef or chicken?"
