When Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host, Guy Fieri opened one of his iconic restaurants at Time Square Casino, you could bet your bottom dollar I was going to visit! American husband in tow, we set off for a classic, ’merican “Big Eats” experience.
The menu includes a variety of “shareables” with stars like Dragon Chilli Cheese fries and Trash Can Nachos. The nachos, which are served in a trash can (this is removed by the waiter upon serving) are filled with “super-melty” cheese, Cheddar, black beans, jalapeño shavings, sour cream, pickled red onions and pico de gallo.
Y’all need to try the multiple award-winning Bacon Mac n Cheese Burger (come hungry!): a marbled 100% certified Angus beef patty is crowned with smoked bacon, six-cheese mac n cheese (yup, you read that right), a host of additional toppings piled atop that and drizzled with donkey sauce on a toasted brioche bun – the epitome of feel-good American fare.
In true Guy-style, we finished off with the dark chocolate whiskey cake (whiskey crème anglaise, salted whiskey caramel, hot fudge and crushed candy bar). Saddle up for a shake-up on the mechanical bull, else simply sit back and enjoy the evening.
No under 18s allowed. Time Square Casino, 209 Aramist Avenue, Menlyn; 012-003-6175.
