Do you remember Singapore’s very first A&W outlet?
When it was announced that A&W would be coming back to the shores of our little red dot 2 years ago, it made Singaporeans everywhere excited. On the opening day, there were snaking-long queues that lasted for about an hour.
So why were Singaporeans so hyped about A&W?
This dates back all the way to Singapore’s first A&W outlet in 1966. Netizens whose schools were nearby the fast food restaurant recalled going there for either a before or after school treat, having the Coney Dogs for Tuesday specials. Someone also recalled the “Papa Burger, Mama Burger, and Baby Burger” – something that is no longer available in today’s A&W menu.
Unfortunately, A&W had to close down back then due to a canal widening scheme around the area where they’re located. Although that brought disappointment to many Singaporeans, that place definitely left many good memories for us.
