White Castle has been going strong since opening in Shanghai, and they don’t plan on stopping any time soon, rolling out a number of new deals for the winter, and even extending their hours to become one of the few late-night dining venues in the city.
Unless you're from a certain part of the US, the odds are that you only know White Castle as the McGuffin in a movie about two stoner buds named Harold and Kumar. You might not have even realized that White Castle is actually a real burger joint. In fact, White Castle has been slinging its famous Original Sliders since 1921!
Here is what’s new at White Castle:
White Castle has now extended the operation hours of their Fengsheng Li location on Fridays and Saturdays, open until 3am! To cap that off, they’re adding on a 15% discount across the board(excluding bottled drinks) on Fridays and Saturdays after 10pm, only at Fengsheng Li. That’s one more place to add to your late night dining options. If you're looking for a drink, White Castle has bottled beers, and there are many bars in the neighborhood. White Castle sliders with beer at midnight, now that's a classic example of a night out on the town.
They also have a new set dubbed the “Castle Duo” to help with your cravings. The set for two is RMB98and includes six sliders of your choice, three classic snacks of regular fries, sweet potato fries, and three chicken rings, plus two hot or cold drinks of either coffee, tea, or soft drinks.
For the working crowd, they have a lunch rush deal. The Fengsheng Li location has 50% off your second purchase of Castle Meals (starting from RMB42) every Monday to Friday from 11am-2pm.
While the Raffles City Changning location has a buy-two-get-one-free deal on all combos, valid for the same period.
Why is White Castle such a hot item?
We loved the famous Cheese Slider, a two-inch by two-inch beef patty steam-grilled over a bed of diced onions and served on an unmistakably light and airy square bun with sliced pickle, and American cheddar cheese. And that unique selling point has been going strong for nearly a century. If you decide to stay home during the cold weather, they have a deal on Sherpa's this month, offering 6 cheese sliders for ¥60.
Today, White Castle owns and operates 400 restaurants in 13 states in the US. And now, nearly a century later this burger chain has opened not one, but two locations in Shanghai at Fengsheng Li and Raffles City Changning.
