Review: An Exclusive Complimentary Dinner For 2 by A&W Malaysia

>> Thursday, February 18, 2016

Venue: A & W Restaurant, Kota Damansara

A&W: Hello? Is this Ms Ruth Wong?
Ruth: Yes, speaking...
A&W: I'm Shahid calling from A&W Malaysia. We would like to invite you to a special dinner for 2 on Sunday..
Ruth: Er...what's this about? It's a 'lil last minute (11th Feb) & Sunday is a major Chinese New Year festival day (7th day) + it's also Valentine's Day...
A&W: Oh, it's a special dinner that we would like to invite you & your partner to come..it's gonna be a course meal like in hotels...it's for winners of a contest & we want to also invite a blogger to come...you can choose from selected outlets to enjoy the meal.
Ruth: Er...okaaay....I'll get back to you with confirmation once I confirm with my partner, ok?
A&W: Sure...! Thank you, Ms Ruth Wong...

I found it totally peculiar. Valentine's Day celebration at A&W??

Believe it or not, it just dawned upon me that this is my 1st V-Day celebration with AP after being together for 7+ years (we're like some 'old couple' who doesn't bother with young, festive hypes)! Hahahaha...we've never celebrated such commercialized days & the 2 times we celebrated previously were celebrated with a kid whom we helped look after so that her parents can go celebrate V-Day together (that's like during our 1st year together) & the 2nd time was a post V-Day celebration, not on the 'actual day'. I'm amused at the dynamic of our relationship *giggles*

As you could see, we did agree to attend this 'special complimentary dinner for 2' after all. We were pleasantly surprised to find the tables set up specially for such occasion although not in the most 'romantic' of fashions. When we entered the restaurant, we were greeted personally by the waiter, waitress & restaurant manager at the Kota Damansara branch; I thought that was quite nice until I found out that they were informed of my name & it was also stated at the table reserved for me. Hohoho.

The special menu for the night was more nostalgic than romantic. Thankfully AP isn't very particular with his food & was more than glad to have fast food (especially A&W since the Kuantan's branch was closed down) for dinner despite it being V-Day. To him, it's just any other Sunday...haha.

We started the 3-course dinner with a salad with dill dressing. It was a simple, pleasant salad, nothing very fanciful. I thought it would be nicer if the portion was more generous, especially with the greens (just romaine lettuce) & the tomatoes were diced instead of sliced in chunks. We couldn't really taste the dill though, so the salad with dill dressing didn't really live up to its name, in our humble opinion. Presentation wise, it would have looked nicer if it was served in an oval-shaped bowl :P

Our entree was an 11" long chicken coney dog with coney & cheesy sauce. TOTALLY NOSTALGIC! The taste was still as delicious as how I last remembered it & we thought this could be A&W's all-time favorite/signature dish if it's marketed differently. We enjoyed the coney dog (esp with cheese!), but the almost foot long coney dog would look better if the hotdog bun is 1 long bun instead of 2 usual size hotdog buns with 1 long sausage.

Note: photos taken using a different camera from this point 

We were also served with 1 piece of fried chicken each. AP said he's quite confident that A&W uses the "Kentucky" fried chicken flour that you can buy off the rack at the supermarkets for the fried chicken's batter. I liked the taste, but I still find it too salty for my liking. He loved every crunch of it...*sigh...my man...loves fast food a 'lil too much*

A meal at A&W will NEVER be complete without the signature root beer in a chilled mug :) Ah...it was a walk-down-memory-lane...love every sip of the root beer that AP had a refill & drank to his heart's desire...hahaha...

We ended our meal with the A&Wsome waffle + 1 scoop of vanilla ice-cream topped with strawberry sauce, AP's favorite flavor! I think AP enjoyed this meal more than I did cos all his favorites were served one after another...hahaha.

We're grateful for the treat & the gifts that A&W presented to us together with the appearance of Rooty the RB Bear! I felt like a kid again! It was indeed a memorable V-Day this year although not the most romantic-ambiance one as I had the opportunity to celebrate it with my own 'bear' i.e. AP & had Rooty joining us as well *wheee*

Thank you, A&W Malaysia & the Kota Damansara branch's team for the lovely treat! We will certainly look out for the upgraded 11" cheesy coney dog to be included into the menu later this year *fingers crossed* Oh, the one thing that could certainly make this dinner more 'romantic' is the selection of songs played in the restaurant; they could have just put on some V-Day related songs/love songs instead of having the usual Malay radio channel.

How did you celebrate your V-Day this year? Haha...are you as practical as both AP & I or are you the romantic type of couple who prefers a fanciful meal for 2? Would you celebrate special occasions at fast food restaurants like A&W? It's not too bad an idea, really :)

Both too practical :P
