In-N-Out Burger pops into Singapore for a few minutes
Completely underestimating Singaporeans’ love for beef patties, an In-N-Out Burger pop-up restaurant reportedly sold out of burgers in less than five minutes after opening on Tuesday, according to Singapore lifestyle website Insing.com.
The pop-up event -- one of several staged by California-based In-N-Out around the world in recent months -- was originally supposed to run from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
But all 300 wristbands, which customers needed to claim one burger each, were given out well before the event as people started lining up at 9:30 a.m.
Word of the one-day pop-up spread quickly when announced on Monday, with hundreds of burger-lovers lining up Tuesday morning to get a taste of the ridiculously popular chain's Double Double, Animal Style and Protein Style burgers at Golden Grill restaurant on Circular Road, where the event took place.
So why the feral response to a burger chain? A lot of it has to do with In-N-Out's legendary status as THE place to grab the world's best fast-food. Even celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has admitted to chowing down on their beef patties.
The original In-N-Out restaurant, which opened in a Los Angeles suburb in 1948, was California's first drive-thru hamburger stand. Today branches can be found all over the western United States.
According to In-N-Out, there are no plans to open a permanent restaurant in Singapore yet. Given the popularity of the pop-up, they may want to rethink that.
