Wendy’s is an American international fast food restaurant chain founded by Dave Thomas. It is known to be the third largest burger chain in the world. Since Indian food market is expanding gloriously, top leading companies and brands are willing to be a part of this market. One of them is Wendy’s. It has two outlets for now. One at Sohna road, Haryana and other in Gurgaon, Haryana.
I had gotten an opportunity of visiting Wendy’s and have a complete experience of how it operates; Kitchen, storage, working space and so on.
We were given a quick introduction of how Wendy’s has been operating over the years and how it works here in India. We then had a look at the menu and the amount of variety they serve is, pretty good! From Bacon to Aloo tikki to Mutton, chicken patties – you name it and they have it.. They have a good range of burgers and fries and side dishes also fruittails( mocktails), clearly standing strong from the rest of its competitors.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Being a foodie it was a dream come true for me to see how everything really works. How the buns are warmed up, how the patties are grilled or fried. The high-tech machines inside,how everything is stored up, the amount of cleanliness to be maintained by the workers and how the space is sustained. Everything seemed so organised, easy to work with that I felt, soon I could be trained to be a fellow Wendy-er too! 😛 Also it feels great to see that the amount of inspection the manager keeps overall, so as to what we eat( guests/ customers) is safe and sanitised.
I had a gala time interacting with the staff, helping them in preparing burgers and guess what? I prepared a Chicken burger in their kitchen all by myself ( with a little supervision though :P) and it felt so nice!!
Wendy’s should surely be the place to visit next! The ambience all together is beautiful, much better than any other burger joints. They have an excellent menu prepared for all meat and vegetable lovers. They work closley to ensure the hygiene level of the food they serve. All departments are divided precisely.
TASTING SESSION !!
I ended up ordering a range of dishes. From double baconator burger to Ultimate mutton, Masala fries, spicy aloo crunch, classic chicken, chicken chilli and cherry cola fruit tails.
WHAT STOOD OUT?
DOUBLE BACONATOR : The quality of bread was superb. Soft and moist, with two chicken patties- tender and juicy, including strips of bacon on it that ended up being the cherry on the top. Overall yummy, a little heavy and surely a go-getter.
ULTIMATE MUTTON- This one was my favourite out of all. The patty was so juicy, tender and lip smacking. The mutton was not at all chew. The marination of the patty was done brilliantly and grilled to perfection. Good amount of veggies and pickles inside as a filling.
MASALA FRIES- OOOH! So spicy! loved them. Warm, crisp and served beautifully in a bowl. Masala tasted yum much- much better than the ones I have tasted in some other joints.
CHICKEN CHILLI- Prepared out of red beans, a little on the spicier side but since I am ok with spices I totally loved it. Gave this Mexican feel to me, served with rice.. a closer copy to what you can say is ‘rajma chawal’ but with an american touch to it. Beautiful preparation.
The burgers overall are worth trying, bored of round burgers? Head over to Wendy’s they serve square burgers!! 😀
Some of the highlights of Wendy’s:
Ø Co working space
Ø Deliver on your table
Ø Unlimited tea and coffee refill
Ø Pricing – A little higher than the other burger joints but totally worth it.
Ø Free Wi-Fi
Ø Music – they play Coke Studio 90% of the time, mixed with English music sometimes
Ø Square Burgers
Ø Food is served in proper cutlery
Ø They don’t serve mustard and ketchup with the burger because the burgers are made with sauces, want the customers to relish the taste
Ø Restaurant interiors
A place to visit and to be enjoyed with loved ones, friends. A good range of food variety, not very expensive. Welcoming staff with great ambience.
