On Sunday morning, 19 April, Singaporeans woke up to some unexpected news: McDonald’s was closing all their outlets, including drive-thrus and delivery services till 4 May 2020. Although some may be bemoaning the lack of McSpicy burgers and Happy Meals, we’re thankful that it was done as an act of precaution and that the fast-food giant has given assurances that they take care and pay their staff. With that said, we all know that there’s no lack of choice of fast food in Singapore.
Here’s a list of other chains that you can get your fast food fix from.
