The name of the restaurant says it all, every main meal serve in this restaurant come with fries. A refreshing concept from the founder of Awfully Chocolate, whom recently just open their third branch in Bugis Junction.
Thanks to our friend, Grace, the mother of a tiger baby who suggested this place for our makan session and catch up. Located in the 4th floor of Bugis Junction, the same floor as the cinema, this restaurant concept is casual dining. Basically, you won't miss it when you coming from the escalator.
Not sure on how the crowd was going to be that night, we arrived early and hungry. So we decided to order Skinny Wings ($6.90) first before our makan kakis arrived. The skinny wings is crispy on the outside, well seasoned, and juicy on the inside. Nice and yummy, I'll say. Lucky thing they arrived when we only started on the nibble, if not I sure will gobbled all up.
Now for the actual meal, I ordered the Char-Grilled Char Siew ($15.90) and the Little Devil ordered the Steak n Tulang ($25.90) on the special menu. By adding $3.50 each, we also get the famous The One Egg Soup and Lemon Tea drink.
For those that never been here before, the The One Egg Soup is a must try. Look yellowish in colour, the soup taste is unique, creamy, full of flavour with a little tangy twist. To top it up, it has the edges of the fried egg to add a different dimension in the texture.

Now for the fries that come with every meal, you have a choice of shoestring or straight cut fries with the following flavours: Original, curry, salt & vinegar, sour cream & onion; and garlic & herbs. I tried the straight cut with curry, while the little devil get the shoestring fries with truffle oil as part of the special meal. The fries here sure did not disappoint.
My Char-Grilled Char Siew is tender, juicy and well marinated. The char-grilled add to the intensity of the flavour of the well braised pork belly. The garlic sauce is quite subtle and does not overpower the pork belly. The serving is quite generous, especially on the fries portions unlike the mini portions of the salad.

For Steak n Tulang (Bone) is more like the meal for the carnivore. The serving is quite huge, compromising of steak, bone and fries that fill the plate to the brim. The steak is tender and juicy, but slightly overcook. The bone marrow make a nice pairing with the meat and the fries. It is so yummy, The Little Devil really clean the plate.

Meanwhile our friend order the grilled pork chop ($13.90) and the cheese burger ($11.90). Unfortunately the pork chop is a little tough, while the sour cream fries is not crispy due to the sour cream coating. The burger is tender and juicy, but the portion is slightly smaller compare to the other mains.

Since everyone quite stuffed with the mains, we decided to share the desserts. We reserved one slice of the mille crepe ($6.90) and Nutella Tart ($6.90). The mille crepe is made from layers of crepe, cream and maple syrup. However, the difficult part is to find the balance between the moist crepes and freshness of the cream. At a first glance, it actually looks very inviting. However, after the first bite, you realise that the crepe is a little too thick and the cream was slightly solidified that make the cake to become more condensed instead of airy. It is actually quite disappointing, considering the owner of this place made their name in patisserie.
The Nutella Tart has a solid fillings and crust. It is compact, thick and heavy. The Nutella taste is also slightly off, seems different from the taste that you know. Instead of finishing the meal on a high, the deserts was a let down.
Service here is good. The service staff here can easily be identified as they are wearing trendy pink shirts
Overall, Everything with Fries brings an interesting dining concept with different flavour of their fries. The food taste good and from a price point it is easy on the pocket. We would not mind coming back for more, especially for the unique The One Egg Soup, however we won't expect to much on the desserts. Cheers!!
