I remember spending our summer break playing house, teacher-teacher or fulfilling my childhood dream as a supermarket cashier with my plastic cash register that goes "ting!" every time I open the cash drawer. In contrast to today's age of gourmet eating, the 90s was the fast food era. Oh how we spent those years munching on fries, chomping down burgers, slurping cones of ice cream and cups of milkshake. I tell you, it was bliss and while most of us have to pay for it today, it made us really happy kids back then.
As they say, all good things must come to an end. Eventually, A&W bid Singapore good bye as well. *sigh* Then last 2010, I chanced upon an A&W store in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Despite suffering from a terrible tummy ache then, I didn't pass up the chance to try A&W again.
Quite blah. Well, there's obviously nothing spectacular about their fried chicken but it wasn't bad either.
I happily focused on the crunchy curly fries. They tasted just as good as I remembered them to be. Yayyy!!
Rootbeer Float (Rp. 15,500)
Paul was so happy with this as it brought back a lot of good childhood memories too. Still the best rootbeer float in the world for us!
It was a light lunch as we were about to take the boat back to Singapore and it's not a good idea to travel with a full stomach especially when you might get seasick. How I wish that we were able to try the A&W Ice Cream Waffles too which seems to be a popular choice in Batam. Well, there's always a next time.
I wonder how come A&W closed down in both Singapore and Manila. I wonder if there's a chance for it to return? What do you think?
A&W is located in Mega Mall and in Nagoya Hill in Batam, Indonesia.
