Attention all burger-lovers, cult-favourite American burger joint, Five Guys has opened its first Singapore store at Plaza Singapura.
Occupying a space of over 460 sqm, the outlet at Plaza Singapura is located along a prime stretch on the ground floor of the mall overlooking the Orchard Road belt. Currently comprising an indoor area that seats up to 52 patrons, the store will eventually also house an outdoor seating area that will increase the outlet’s capacity to accommodate up to over 160 patrons.
The Singapore store is the global burgers and fries joint’s first franchise in Asia, and the latest addition to Zouk Group’s growing food and beverage portfolio as part of its lifestyle expansion plans.
“After many months of planning, we’re thrilled to finally unveil the very first Five Guys store in Singapore. Five Guys is an exciting addition to our portfolio, and we were fortunate to be presented with an opportune space in the city that is highly accessible, so that fans of Five Guyscan come together to enjoy their favourite burgers with ease. This first outlet will be the bedrock upon which we grow the brand in Singapore, and we look forward to more to come,” says Andrew Li, Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Group.
Five Guys is a family run burgers & fries joint offering a mouth-watering menu made from scratch. Five Guys has been a Washington, D.C. area favorite since 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to three of the Murrell brothers: “Start a business or go to college.” The business route won and the Murrells opened a carry-out burger joint in Arlington, Virginia, USA. Under the guidance of Jerry and Janie, the little burger joint quickly developed a cult-like following. Customers voted the burger “#1” in the D.C. metro area.
During the 1980s and 1990s, the Murrells perfected their simple concept. Five Guys became The Place to get a fresh, juicy burger with all the toppings you could stuff between two fresh-baked buns. Two more brothers joined the team and as the family grew, so did the business. Early in 2003, Jerry and Janie, together with the “Five Guys”, began offering franchise opportunities. In just under 18 months, more than 300 units had been sold.
Now, decades after FIVE GUYS first opened, there are locations across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, with planned expansion into Australia, Africa, Central and South America. By maintaining a simple ethos, coupled with the highest quality, the Murrells continue to follow through on the vision they outlined in 1986.
Five Guys’ mission is to redefine the global burger landscape by focusing on freshness and quality. With no freezers and no microwaves, it is built on the premise that all burgers and fries are made fresh every day. The meat is a perfected 80/20 lean-to-fat ratio. Patties are hand-made seven days a week on site. The bread, which is Five Guys’ only proprietary item, is baked fresh five days a week in a locally contracted bakery. The same unique recipe is used globally. Potatoes are cut fresh daily, soaked to remove the starch and double-fried in pure, no cholesterol peanut oil to create the firm exterior and fluffy ‘mashed-potato’ interior that Five Guys fries are known for.
Following their succesful debut outlet at Jewel Changi Airport, Shake Shack is now preparing for their 2nd branch on Neil Road, targeting to open some time 1st quarter of year 2020.

With fresh, high-quality food at a great value, Shake Shack is a fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal.

Supergreek’s modern spin on this Greek specialty consists of tender cuts of meat, fish and vegetarian options accentuated with quintessential herbs such as oregano and dill, as well as tomatoes, onions and Greek vinaigrette, then grilled, roasted, or steamed, but never fried.
“At Supergreek, we follow traditional Greek cuisine which is predominantly plant-based, and focused on lean meats, seafood and heart-healthy olive oil that is also fresh. Whether your diet is plant-based, keto, low carb, pescatarian, high-protein, or if you are just curious about eating better, we have some amazing options for you that will help you in your search for the holy grail of sustainable healthy eating: nutritious, delicious, affordable and repeatable.” Hsin Yao elaborates.
The first Nam Dae Mun flagship store in Singapore is set to open on Saturday, 30 November 2019, at 313@somerset, in the heart of Orchard Road for both local residents and international visitors.

Wildly popular in Australia, thanks to its customisable menu made from the freshest quality ingredients, Mad Mex has powered into Singapore with its first restaurant in Singapore that recently opened at Marina Bay Financial (MBFC) Tower 3.
With more than 70 locations now operating in Australia and New Zealand, the dedicated Mad Mex team has served up more than four million burritos across both countries in the last 12 months. The success of the group has spurred the new international expansion and coincides with Mad Mex’s new 2019 brand refresh and positioning, ‘Fresh Fuel For Life’, which places arevived focus on healthy living and supporting people in living life to the fullest.
The latest move comes after the owner of 4FINGERS bought a 50% stake in Mad Mex last year. The brand is looking forward to more openings in Singapore and Malaysia, where its arrival could fill a gap in the food industry with honest, healthy ‘fast food’.
With Mad Mex there is no ‘burrito-ing’ round the bush; only fresh, ethically-sourced ingredients are used in its food every day. So pure and simple, the recipes used are available online along with a nutritional calculator for full transparency into what customers are eating. Customary Mexican favourites – Burrito, Naked Burrito, Tacos, Nachos, Quesadilla, Grande MeltTM and Ensalada – are served and customers are encouraged to customise their meals according to their dietary requirements – anyone can eat at Mad Mex.
Founder and CEO Clovis Young of Mad Mex sums up the ingenuity of Mad Mex’s humble but revolutionary ethos, “I started Mad Mex in 2006, because I absolutely love Mexican food, and I wanted to share that love with all of Australia, and the world. I wanted my customers to get a fast meal with homemade quality, made entirely of real ingredients. That means the fewest preservatives, oils and sugars – while always big on taste. You should never have to choose between a quick meal and quality healthy food.”
With the closure of its flagship tze char eatery at Hillview Avenue in June this year leaving fans scrambling into the city for their New Ubin fix; an upscale restaurant in the city centre CHIJMES cluster and a hotel restaurant in Zhongshan Park didn’t feel quite the same. Plans were already set in motion by its proprietors, the Pang family, to find a new space that could house the brand’s signature tze char eatery concept. The components were unique to its plight – an amalgamation of years of moving around oft offbeat locations, most famous of which were its Sixth Avenue, Sin Ming Industrial Estate and its latest Hillview Avenue incarnations.
The formula is as bewildering as it is exact. An off-the-beaten-path location accessible at best by car, far flung from the city and tucked away into the forgotten crevices of Singapore. It’d count the likes of paint shops and auto- repair businesses as its neighbours, and its cuisine best enjoyed in a nondescript outdoor canteen setting that has no business serving choice rib-eye cuts, kaya toast on baguette with French butter, or premium Bordeaux in Riedel glasses – but do so anyway. Here, New Ubin’s brand of rustic roots and kampong essence, which it serves its ‘Truly Singaporean’ cuisine with, fares exceedingly.
Today, that recipe has been exacted to a tee, and with all previous moves, comes with its own set of upgrades. Located on the ground floor of Space@Tampines, a commercial property along Tampines Industrial Crescent flanked by furniture showrooms and inflatable air dancers, is the 5,700 square feet New Ubin Village. The proposition is a canteen cluster that houses seven stalls, three of which its own concepts—including its back-to- basics tze char eatery New Ubin Tampines and a brand new incubator stall programme, New Ubin Test Kitchen—all enabled with modern-day technologies that allow guests to order and make cashless payments directly from their table without having to call for a physical menu or bill. A third concept is currently underway and will be announced at a later date.

After bringing in Tsuta, the world’s first one Michelin-starred ramen eatery, to Singapore and expanding the chain to 7 stores in 4 countries all under 2 years, businessman Brian Chua is hungry for more. Through Gourmet Food Holdings, an investment company which Brian founded, he is investing into Mrs Pho with the hopes of bringing the brand international.
The authentically humble pho restaurant operates on the tribute to its founder Hoang’s mother, grandmother and aunts, the women who selflessly feed their family out of love and whom he crowns as the best cooks. Mrs Pho serves up homemade communal style Vietnamese classics derived from Hoang’s family recipes, so they taste just like how his mother used to make them. All ingredients in their making are proudly sourced from Vietnam as well.
Growing up as a refugee in Australia, food was the string home to Hoang’s roots, the same one which he now hopes to share with the world through Mrs Pho. That is why everything continues to be made in-house, from the broth and sauces to its range of unique house-made drinks.
Their partnership has birthed the latest Mrs Pho outlet in VivoCity, Singapore’s largest retail and lifestyle destination. This outpost marks the first Mrs Pho in a shopping mall, the first of many more which Gourmet Food Holdings has set its sights on growing worldwide.
Two very special dishes were unveiled at the launch – an exclusive creation by the original Mrs Pho, as Hoang’s own mother is affectionately known, who graced the event with her presence for the opening. Mamma’s Chicken Ham are irresistible slices of minced chicken marinated with spices, steamed in in banana leaf and then fried for extra flavour. A traditional snack in Vietnam, its flavours explode with each bite especially when had with its special sweet and spicy dipping sauce, perfect to go with beer. They are also the perfect addition to the Moc Noodle Soup, a hearty clear noodle broth, sweetened with slices of fresh onion.
The rest of the meny features flavours of Hoang’s childhood with appetisers like the Mrs Pho Cockles that presents succulent cockles tossed in fragrant garlic and pork lard, as well as the Fresh Star Fruit and Beef Salad, where tender slices of beef is served with fresh star fruit for a zesty balance. The Grilled Lemongrass Beef Sticks is also a good contender with chunky beef marinated in lemongrass essence for a touch of freshness.
The must-order at Mrs Pho is the Special Beef Combo Pho, a warm, hearty bowl of silky flat rice noodles in a rich beef soup, accompanied generously by lean cuts of beef, beef balls, tripe and more. Crunchy beansprouts, mint leaves, sliced chilli and onion make it a meal that’s as balanced as it is heartwarming. The Hue Special Beef Noodle Soup also shines the spotlight on beef while the Mrs Pho Dry Noodle Combo allows you to savour the delicateness of the restaurant’s house-made noodles.
Wash it all down with house specialty drinks like refreshing Coconut Smoothie, Yoghurt Cooler and a popular Vietnamese favourite, the Saigon Salty Lemonade. For a sweet end, the Cream Caramel will seal things with a syrupy sweet kiss while the Avocado Smoothie wraps things up on a creamy note. As an option, you can also have the traditional Vietnamese drip coffee as an add-on to the smoothie for an extra buzz.
In Mrs Pho, Brian found authenticity and character of food served from the heart, and has chosen to invest and help expand the chain to international waters. Likewise, Hoang appreciates Chua’s sincere and fearless approach in taking a small ramen shop and bringing it to international success while maintaining its core qualities and hopes to see the same for Mrs. Pho.
This new outlet takes on a quirkier vibe true to Vietnam’s booming street art scene back home, featuring a graffiti wall by an upcoming Vietnamese artist for an interactive element. The dining area reflects your typical Vietnamese household with lanterns and bamboo beads. All furniture and fixtures are flown in from Vietnam, too, for a true feel of home.
A visit to Mrs Pho promises to transport diners to Hoang’s home and childhood, through the food, ambience and restaurant spirit.

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc (pronounced as FIRE Kitchen And Drink) is the newest casual dining restaurant in central business district.
Against the backdrop of Chinatown’s historic allure, FYR promises an intriguing experience that harks back to a simpler time. Rustic décor and storied wall murals lend the restaurant a distinct olden-day charm. Even its moniker is as old as time — it is the etymology of fire. Fire is one of the most important elements in life, especially in cooking. They aim to peel back the layers of complexity to produce food that can bring you a lot of joy.
All of FYR’s cuisines and dishes are whipped up using the Josper Charcoal Oven. This culinary practice pays tribute to a time when food was cooked atop wood chunks and over a roaring fire. The chefs of FYR use lychee wood, which gives the dishes a wonderful smoky note that is tinged with sweetness.
FYR purveys an array of authentic, modern cuisines that perfectly captures the European culture. The chefs opt for herbs and spices found in the Southeast Asian region and use them to enliven the dishes. The dishes, varying from grilled meat to seafood, will be an instant hit with Singaporeans, who possess an inclination towards spicy food.
Some of the mainstays at FYR include: Baked Freshly-Shucked Oysters: noble sweet paprika, roasted garlic, chilli padi, spring onion and calamansi all lend a distinctive quality to the fresh and succulent oysters. Grain-fed US Holstein Cow Ribeye 365 Days: this glorious slab of ribeye, cooked to perfection, comes with house salad with java curry dressing and a choice of either buttered cassava or mashed potato.
Whole Maine Lobster: this gigantic lobster, sprawled across the plate, is bound to turn heads. The aroma of the shallot lemongrass béchamel will also waft through the air and whet appetites. Seafood Linguine: tossed with al dente pasta is a potpourri of seafood ingredients as well as lobster bisque, laksa leaves and Thai basil.
Wash these great cuisines down with FYR’s special concoctions. The Apple Rosemary is a delightful blend of fresh apple juice, fresh rosemary and infused lemon syrup. The tangy Lime and Mint is a mix of fresh lime, mint leaves and mint syrup, and will help to cleanse palates.
The Ginger Lemongrass, made with lemon tea, fresh ginger and lemongrass, will help to invigorate senses. The sweet Hibiscus Mint features hibiscus tea, fresh apple juice and infused mint syrup.
Another unique concoction that FYR offers is Grilled Fresh Fruit Juice – expect a rich and caramelized flavour as the bartenders grill the seasonal fruits before juicing. Merrymakers can also quaff the restaurant’s fine selection of red and white wines.
