What the Fries!
What the Fries! serve premium quality fries imported from the US and other tasty finger food, with unique dipping sauces catered to local taste buds. With its memorable name and freshly-baked snacks, What the Fries! promise to deliver a whole new experience to fries-lovers, young and old alike.
The fries at What The Fries are fried golden, and to crisp perfection, then coated with a generous serving of their special sauce, which definitely makes for a very hunger-inducing sight.
The chicken wings at What The Fries aren't too bad either! Savoury, and just a tad sweet due to the honey coating, the wings certainly make for a very good go-to snack as well if you aren't too keen on the carbohydrates that the fries might bring.
Prices aren't too cheap, but customers shouldn't expect low prices for a huge tub of thick fries with unique sauces on them, so I'd say the price is generally pretty worth it. Don't harbour too much hopes of enjoying your fries within the store though; The seat capacity there is pretty limited, and the last time I was there, the staff there seemed pretty slow to clear dirty tables.
Started by 2 gentlemen experimenting new flavours for the dipping sauces, WTF aims to bring quality fries (made in USA!) to the tastebuds of Singaporeans. They have definitely catered it to Singaporeans with their locally infused flavours like Grab A Crab which resembles the Chilli Crab sauce we all love.
Of all their sauces though, I think the Nacho Macho Latino, though different than other Nacho Cheese tastes, lacks in the thick creamy texture. It's a rather diluted sauce and I personally prefer the other ones they have.
Their fries and wings definitely have a nice crunch while maintaining taste and integrity within them as they prepare them when you order. Thus the slightly longer wait is worth the results.
As TheThinker mentioned, it's much more of a grab and go snack and would not bother sitting in the rather cramped and noisy sitting area.
I would definitely pop by the next time I return to JCube but since I am an hour plus away, it's not personally an item I would travel that far for.
The quality of the potatoes is commendable, which gives them a special taste beyond fluffy, greasy and being crisp. The fries are soft in the centre and crisp on the outside, which makes it have a feel of restaurant quality fries.
The sauces are special, and some are developed from scratch. My favourites are the grab a crab(chilli crab) and the What's up babe(wasabi mayo) sauces, both which are not too spicy but rather mild but tasty at the same time. Despite how good the standard fires are,the curly fries are something like McDonald's not that special on its own.
Prepare for a wait if you patronise them, for they only cook your food upon order, which takes about 3-5 minutes to cook per order. I would also advise takeaways, since their chairs are not very comfortable and space is tight.
What The Fries are not as generous with their portions but their cheese fries didn't taste too bad; it was a decent snack. However, the problem is What The Fries are way too expensive. I think it's a bit ridiculous to pay $5 for a small bucket of fries that are very unhealthy when I can pay much less for a full meal at a food court. Macdonald's and KFC's fries are also much cheaper compared to WTF.
Unless you're really hungry and craving for fries, I'd rather you spend your money elsewhere.
I can't really tell the difference between What the Fries! and Best Fries Forever, expect that both are equally sinful. But then again, most good food are sinful, no? Definitely an appropriate mid day snack.
It pretty much blew my mind away, and I would take this anyway as compared to all the fries outlets in Singapore. The fries are near perfect, lightly salted so that it complements the sauce. Truly a unique shop indeed.
The waiting time was pretty long, like 10 minutes, and by the time I have gotten my fries, the place was getting crowded. I would still recommend it to a friend, but if I have to give them another choice, I would make them eat KFC’s cheese fries. WTF's fries cost like 5 bucks, I think. Who pays 5 bucks for a small bowl of fries?!
The unique point of the shop would be the wide selection of dips that you can choose from some of which include even wasabi flavour! I stuck to cheese because all the other dips did not appeal to my taste buds. They are rather special and would probably appeal to those who enjoy trying something different! The herb mayonnaise was rather strong for my liking and the sweet thai chilli dip was too sweet. The cheese tastes like the regular cheese dip.
The fries are freshly prepared each time you order so be prepared to wait! The good point about this is that you get to eat piping hot and crispy fries. The downside would be that if there is a queue, you would have to wait quite a while because there was only 1 more order ahead of mine and we waited a good 10minutes or so for our order.
