Everything with Fries


[Media Review]

Located on the 4th level, Everything with Fries is a popular casual dining place for young people and families. While some people could easily stereotype this place as a fast food outlet, do you know that they serve quality main courses using fresh meat and home-made sauces? 

Though I had their desserts at their sister outlets at Awfully Chocolate and Mooshi Bakes previously, this is my first try at their savoury items.


For starters, the One Egg Soup ($6.90) boasts a rich creamy chicken broth enriched with egg yolk. The egg white is whipped and deep fried into a pillowy, souffle-like fritter. So do you know why it is call One Egg now?:)

 
Chicken wings joints are sliced into half, in other words, made "skinnier" and coated in an Asian-style marinade to produce the crunchy Skinny Wings ($6.90). Both the soup and wings are tasty, though slightly heavy-handed on the salt.


 
You may not believe me but the mains are so good that one can afford to skip the starters. For fish lovers,  I highly recommend the NZ Wild Salmon at $18.90, served with garlic-flavoured fries. Sitting on a slightly acidic lemon buttercream sauce, the fresh Sashimi-grade fish is cooked to the perfect spot that seals the fats and juices beneath the crispy bread crumbs.
 



If you are hankering for beef, this Char-Grilled Beef Karubi ($21.90) is unlikely to disappoint. As the slab of boneless US Prime Beef short ribs has been braised then char grilled, the meat pulls apart effortlessly and ties well with the home-made demi-glace sauce. Strangely, the aroma of truffle oil seemed to have evaporated completely in the truffled fries and thus tasted plain.
 


Alternatively, there is the Steak Tulang ($25.80)-a sizeable yet succulent ribeye cut of roughly 280g, on a bed of steak sauce infused with red wine. It would be great to savour the collagen-rich bone marrows with some toasted baguette but the deep-cut shoestring fries in curry flavor serves as a timely substitute.



While I have no objections with pork, the Char-grilled Pork Belly in garlic sauce (above) $15.9was too flabby with no contrasting textures. The Grilled Pork Chop $13.90 (below) fared better as their homemade miso sauce gave the meat an umami punch. 


Their Tandoori Chicken Sandwich (below) $9.90 suits as a lighter main. The smooth chicken leg smeared with their in-house tandoori marmalade injected a sweet-spicy oomph into the white fluffy bread.

 
All the mains here are served with caesar salad and your choice of their specialty fries (Original/Curry/Salt and Vinegar/Sour Cream and Onion/Garlic and Herbs). My personal favourite is the Sour Cream and Onion as it was tangy and not too salty.  In conclusion, this youngest branch at Bugis Junction is certainly worth a visit for its hearty and quality meals besides burgers. In the meantime, I have set my eyes on their array of desserts especially the Nutella Mug Cake.

Special thanks for the invite to the Bugis Food Trail 2013 organized by omy.sg and Bugis Junction. This is the first stop and click here for the main FOOD map with all 10 listings.
