Nostalgia - A&W Waffle & Root Beer Float

>> Friday, September 28, 2012

What else would come to your mind when the word "A&W" is mentioned? No other than these, right?


Mug of Chilled Root Beer Float (BEST!)

A&W Waffles with the Classic Unsalted Butter & Honey! 

Classic Coney Dog
Basic hotdog topped with minced meat in A&W's special sauce & chopped yellow onions 

Ultimate nostalgia! I haven't been to A&W for probably more than 10 years...or maybe more than 15 years??! Ah, a DECADE!

Landmark for PJ since goodness knows when!

The 1st thing that comes to mind when I stepped into A&W was to order a mug of chilled root beer float. Then the other thing that I HAD to have was the A&W waffles with butter & honey/syrup. Nothing else. I don't fancy their burgers & neither did I order their classic coney dog (WS did, that's why I could take a photo of it!).

My root beer float (RM4.80+/regular mug)
Must have the 2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream in the root beer! Creamy, fragrant, & oh-so-yummy!

Classic waffle - ah, nostalgic (RM5.90+/waffle with butter+honey)
But somehow the waffles aren't as satisfying...thankfully I didn't order anything else as I was struggling to finish a whole waffle by myself. It's just eating a large, thick, piece of slightly crispy sweetened flour! Hahahaha...horrible way to describe it, but by the time I was halfway through, it did felt like that...I was feeling "jelak" already :P 

I wish the prices of food here are slightly cheaper. For just a waffle with butter & honey + a regular mug of root beer float, I spent RM11.35 (inclusive of 6% government tax). It's quite a costly "dinner" considering I didn't have anything much! WS & GK spent even more since they took the set meals.

The not-so-classic waffle...haha...with ice-cream (RM7.20+/waffle with ice-cream)
Looks awesome, but so filling! 

Coney Dog Combo (RM11.55+/set)
The combo comes with a large root beer & a regular box of curly fries. Unfortunately, it seems like the standard of the coney dog has dropped :( The buns were dry & "chewy", while the hotdog/sausage was also quite "stiff"/hard. The sauce was still alright, but the overall experience was kinda disappointing :( Not to mention it's very pricey too! 

If not for the totally awesome time of sharing & laughter, I wouldn't have enjoyed the dining experience at A&W tonight :) Three of us practically sat there talking & laughing for 3 hours straight...oh goodness, such joy!! :D Great friends like these are SO hard to come by & as much as I cherish the nostalgia of A&W, I cherish such awesome times spent with friends even more ;)

Used to go there for supper. But it has been a long time since my last visit. Sadly, the food quality has dropped tremendously!

@Chong: I SO AGREE!! Quality has dropped! I tell u, if not for the nostalgic "bubble", I won't be going back there...sigh. Expensive & not that nice tasting already :( Super sad la...
