I seldom eat Western fast food, but if I have to, I would choose Long John Silver. I especially like their crispy fries, flavoured with spices. This is what they looked like and I’ve been enjoying them since my army days some 30 years ago.
Sadly, things have changed. Just last week, I ordered a basket with a piece of chicken and fish, accompanied by some fries which looked like they were borrowed from McDonalds. Not only was the aroma from the spices missing, the crispy taste of what used to be Long John Silver’s signature fries have also vanished.
Are the folks running Long John Silver are trying to pull a fast one on undiscerning Singaporeans? If so, I don’t see any reason for eating at Long John Silver anymore.
