[Update 10 November 2020 - A&W's 2 outlets at Jewel Changi Airport and Ang Mo Kio Hub have officially been halal-certified by MUIS! ? The announcement was made on their Facebook page and we're so excited. Read on to find out what you can expect at their stores.]A&W
fans, it's time to rejoice! ? We've been waiting for this classic restaurant to finally return to Singapore's sunny shores and with its brand-new outlet opening at Jewel Changi Airport
, we're so excited to finally get the nostalgic goodness we've been craving for! ? (Note: Since we first wrote this article, A&W has opened a 2nd outlet in Ang Mo Kio Hub too!)
Their menu is chock-full of classic American favourites, with everything from burgers and hot dogs, to fried chicken and waffles. And of course, who can forget about their iconic draft root beer floats? ?
We couldn't help but try a little bit of everything to celebrate the momentous occasion ? Check out the onions on that Coney Dog
(Chicken/Beef Ala Carte S$5.20), and the specks of pepper in the Curly Fries
(S$3.60, add cheese for S$0.60)!
Who can ignore how thick and juicy that beef patty in the Mozza Burger
(S$10.90 with combo set including curly fries and root beer) is! ? The rich and savoury flavour was definitely worth the wait, and worth a trip down to Jewel Changi Airport too!
The Waffle Ice Cream With Topping
(S$7.90) was the perfect dessert to end our meal, and the classic Root Beer
(S$2.90) topped it all of with its refreshing goodness!
The outlet is still pretty packed with people clamouring for their first taste of genuine A&W goodness in a long time, but we think it's definitely worth the wait. If anything, we can't wait to go back soon to try everything else on the menu! ?
