Fast-food hall of fame

Wendy's comes to Jaya ONE PJ!
I have to say... I have never been a big fan of Wendy's ... but..

I give the staff props for friendliness and their charming disposition.. Everything CAN!

Can I have hot and spicy as well as original chicken in the SAME order ?


Can I return my coke for a refund because i wanted sprite? ... CAN!



Can I get 50% off my Frosty?... CAN (but on Fridays!)


Anyway, the reason why Wendy's fails to knock my socks off is because, if we are talking burger for burger,
Wendy's burger just LACKS a distinctive taste.

Like Burger King, has that killer Char-grilled taste. Signature.

Mac Donald's (though sometimes disgusting when cold) - that first bite into a piping hot BigMac, has that stinky, cheesy, secret saucy smell, that any kid can tell apart from any other burger, blind folded. Signature.

So, where does Wendy fit in/rank in my fast-food Burger hall of fame... ?

A far third..

But that is just my opinion:D
(I wish they would bring In-N-Out to Malaysia).

Got nice name though, this girl. Pray dun tell she got no feel. We also think she looks awfully boobly big for her age

What will ugly Ramly say ?

there's something about McD's buns that made them aptly soft. and that gherkins/sour cream combo for the filet-o-fish...perfect.

sorry ar, i forgot you were talking about wendy's...hehehe...

remember white castle? ;D

I know exactly what you mean. Had Wendy's years ago in Jakarta and it just wasn't the same.

CUMI & CIKI said...

how healthy of you!

Ramly rocks

yea, i remember reading ur comment somewhere, that you are a big fan of the O-fish!

i wish Malaysia would hurry up and bring In-N-out burgers from the states!

jason said...

Kinda agree on the "lack of distinctive taste".

Julian Si said...

I'll still give the burgers here a go, despite my efforts NOT to each time, each time I go to Jaya One .. I always end up in DucKing Restaurant haha :-)

I like these best ...


"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

hahaha..the burger looks dismal to be honest..bring on the BIG JUICY burgers..from whereever..

CUMI & CIKI said...

really? I thot I was the only one.. lol

i love MOS burger too.. the MOS burger in Tokyo rocks.

sometimes small is OK.. as long as distinctive taste - MOS is good! just as julian says.. i agree

hmmm, coulda sworn i left a comment here. lost in cyberspace ah?

one of the major grouch is the dry burger buns, eg. KFC, A&W etc.

Wendy's a bit different, but still not anywhere near McD's standard.

Carl's JR burgers are hits and misses. some good, some bad. only McD churns out the best.

Burger King's Whopper and French Chicken are good choices, others not really.

Shell (貝殼) said...

i don't really like burger^^

CUMI & CIKI said...

optical illusion! kidding.. it's pretty big actually

eh.. this is the 2nd time uv lost a comment posted! ru sure u posted here kah.. lol :P i hardly ever censor anything.. oo-er.. haha

really.. how healthy:D
helllooooo burger coinoisseur!!

fatboybakes said...

ya, i wrote an essay virtually about how there used to be a wendy's in front of hock lee's when i was a young man of 21, and started work. i used to love their shrimp burger, so when i saw wendy's in jogja, i had to have it, but pttttttttooooooooi, it was awful!!! i guess some memories of our youth arent quite the same these days....

CUMI & CIKI said...

oh no..! i missed a whole essay! lol.. but this one, i got;) and i get what you mean.. i wonder if my stomach out-grew wendy's or if wendy's just got worse with time.. hard2tell:D

Tummythoz said...

I oni remember their congee .. not that it was good but convenient for a teen (me many many many moons) who's sick but still want to hang out at a fast food joint.

CUMI & CIKI said...

wow.. u must have really dug the congee ;P

D said...

When did Wendy's have fried chicken? And it looks pretty decent too!

CUMI & CIKI said...

helo! the chicken was alrite.. original btr than spicy- spicy had too much MSG and pepper

kampungboycitygal said...

the korean bbq place opposite that sounds like a fast fd joint but in fact no has very decent chicken meal..try it out

Precious Pea said... know, i always try my luck at KFC for a piece of original and hot & spicy each in my set but they insist that they can't do that! Just don't understand why. Old Colonel must learn from Ms Young Wendy now. HAHA!

vkeong said...

I have yet to try Wend'ys T_T It looks tempting alright but the price is.... ok I am cheap lolz.

wmw said...

I come here for the shrimp burger! It's the only thing that's different from the rest (oh, and Frosty on Fridays too...hehehe)
