After several delays due to the pandemic, Five Guys has finally arrived in Kuala Lumpur! Fast food lovers can find the newly-opened outlet at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, right in the heart of the luxury shopping belt of Bukit Bintang.
Following its debut in Resorts World Genting last year, it’s exciting to see the phenomenal American burger chain finally opening its second Malaysia store in the capital Kuala Lumpur. Similarly, the new restaurant retains its policy of serving 100% halal-certified beef on its menu. Stretching over 2570 square feet, it can house up to 66 customers at a time.
“We are extremely excited to be opening our first Five Guys in Kuala Lumpur and we couldn’t ask for a better location and partner than Pavilion. Our first store in Genting has been met with resounding success and we expect Five Guys at Pavilion to be just as successful. As we continue to grow the brand across Malaysia we look forward to welcoming more and more fans to the best burger in the world!” says CEO Andrew Li.
In case you didn’t know, Five Guys offers 15 burger toppings to choose from. In addition, there are a total of 8 free premium mix-ins, such as peanut butter, and fresh strawberries. But if you need some suggestions on your first order, perhaps consider these:
- Hamburger with relish, pickles, tomatoes, grilled jalapeños and hot sauce!
- Grilled cheese sandwich with a patty, grilled mushrooms, onions, green peppers and mustard.
- Cheeseburger with pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo. Ask for the cajun spices from the fries to be added to your patty to spice it all up.
5 fun facts about Five Guys:
Options for customers with dietary requirements
Unbeknownst to many, Five Guys serves a veggie sandwich, which is made up of toppings and grilled cheese sandwiches which are suitable for lacto-vegetarians. Fries are plain potatoes cooked in 100% peanut oil and are suitable for vegan and gluten-free diets. Besides, the burgers are customisable so it is possible to go bunless as well.
There are no freezers in-store at Five Guys
Due to the strong emphasis on freshness and quality, Five Guys prepare their ingredients from scratch daily and ingredients are only refrigerated.
Standard of a Five Guys burger
The standard burger is actually a double burger with double patties. Customers can also opt for little burgers that consist of a single patty.
Creating the perfect fry
Five Guys uses peanut oil to cook its fries as it is a healthier option and contains monounsaturated fat. To identify the perfect fry, fries undergo fry calibration twice daily to ensure consistency in taste and texture throughout the day. Variables such as the time of the day or year, age of peanut oil determine how we prepare and cook our fries.
The origin of the name ‘Five Guys’
Five Guys originally referred to Jerry Murrells, the founder of Five Guys, and his four sons – Jim, Matt, Chad, and Ben. The Murrells then had a fifth son, Tyler, two years later. Hence the name “Five Guys” then referred to all five sons eventually.
