Since the beginning of my endeavor in starting this food blog, I made it a point to pen my thoughts of mention-worthy food. And with that benchmark set, cookie-cutter type of food stands the least chance of my publishing.

The iconic Kallang Drive-Thru has stood its ground for decades, and still is 1 of the landmarks for fast food on the island – KFC & McDonald’s in particular. The 70s & 80s kid, would today be proud parent of the next generation, and the 90s & 00s kids would today find themselves continuing the legacy of patronage (perhaps with young ones in tow).

Add to the latest addition of the Decathlon Singapore Lab, within walking distance, anticipates the impending transformation of the Singapore Sports Hub.

I’ve been an avid fan of the Original Zinger Burger since its inception in the 90s, and it’s been a mainstay on the menu all these years. When I caught wind of the Mighty Zinger Burger, I knew I had to give it a try.

Visually, the size of the Mighty Zinger is comparable to some of the burgers offered at Carl’s Jr. The Zinger slab is somewhat 20-30% larger than the regular Zinger, the jungle of mayonnaise drowned lettuce & red onions gives it a little more juice, the crunchy strip of roasted bacon is savory and the melted slice of cheese adds a little stretch to the munch. Nonetheless, I couldn’t quite appreciate that BBQ sauce going on in there.

The Zinger chicken slab is inclined to be savory, the mayo lettuce & onions already suffice to sweeten the bite, bacon strip for crunch, and cheese for munch. But I think the BBQ sauce can be greatly reduced, if not, omitted totally.

For those of us who just can’t get enough for the Original Zinger, and your palates concur with mine, concerning the BBQ sauce, there is silver lining beyond the cumulus nimbus.

In case you haven’t noticed it, there’s the Cheesy Zinger Stacker Box. 2 succulent slabs of Zingers chicken stacked in the bun, the lettuce & mayo is in there, 2 slices of melted cheese in there. A choice of crispy/ original piece on the side, in case you can’t get enough of the KFC recipe crispy chicken.
