Five Guys NEX
Hot on the heels of Shake Shack’s rapid domination of the Singapore burger scene, Five Guys has expanded with its second outlet in NEX, which has opened today, on 11 January 2021.
The famous American burger chain landed on Singapore shores in December 2019 to much aplomb. They sold more than 1,000 burgers on their opening day, with hundreds waiting in line for their turn.
The menu at the NEX outpost of Five Guys looks to be the same iconic menu available throughout all of Five Guys’ outlets worldwide. There are four basic burgers─the Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Baconburger and Bacon Cheeseburger─which can then be customised with 15 free toppings, resulting in a jaw-dropping 250,000 different ways to order a Five Guys burger. There will also be hotdogs, equally customisable with the same array of toppings.
Five Guys NEX will have 73 indoor seats, larger than its Plaza Singapura outlet that has just 52. There is also an open concept kitchen so you can watch your burgers being made. Delivery will soon be available for those living in the area too, though not immediately, as the brand would like to settle into their operations at NEX first.
Burgers at Five Guys are not cheap─a Cheeseburger rings in the till at $15, with no accompanying fries or drinks. We tried it, and like many others, decided that it’s definitely worth the price, and the queue.
If you haven’t been to Five Guys, and you love sweets, you’re in for a treat. Not only can you customise your burger, you can also do the same for your Five Guys Shake ($10), a milkshake that allows you to go crazy with any topping you want! There are 11 different toppings, including chocolate, peanut butter, salted caramel and─wait for it─bacon.
