Mesmerizing the childhood memories at A&W Seremban.
When I was a kid, there weren’t much choices of fast food joints especially in Seremban unlike big city in Kuala Lumpur. There weren’t Mcdonalds, KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut & etc. I remember vividly there was only Grandy’s (not sure if you could remember this name. Its no longer exist here anymore. The cinnamon roll and mashed potato was good!), and A&W which hang on till today.
Other than ice cream in root beer, ice cream on waffle, A&W in Seremban used to serve ice creams during 80s and 90s. I could fondly remember that banana split and chocolate ice cream with chocolate syrup served in a glass cup! They were my favorite. Not forgetting the mint flavor ice cream! Unfortunately they are no longer having that ice cream kiosk today.
A&W restaurant in Seremban is a stand alone outlet located at the Lake Garden Seremban, its an iconic landmark in Seremban since year 1978. I also remember the playground which was demolished to give way for drive-thru. *Sigh…kinda sad though.
On year 2015, A&W Seremban made an announcement about closing its door to make way for renovation. It created a huge beeline patronizing the outlet for the last time.
The renovation took quite sometime. Which many of us earlier thought its gonna be closed permanently.
Year 2022, A&W with its new outlook! Apparently it is the first A&W in Malaysia having Jamaica Blue coffee together.
Let’s take a look on the interior. Looking so vibrant with the retro touch.
I’m gonna try the fried chicken. I heard some of my friends commented that it is nice!
Come to A&W, Root Beer is something you must order lor….
Be it with ice cream or without.
Ini macam barulah YES! The aroma and flavor is so fresh, that its different from those canned ones.
A&W has added rice on their menu to suit the Asian taste bud, its called Nasi Aroma, (with sambal on it).
I did not put high expectations on it. But since some of my friends said they preferred A&W fried chicken over the others famous fast food outlets. Hence I gave it a try.
A&W’s fried chicken (Golden Aroma Chicken) was surprisingly nice! The skin was crispy and not too salty. Meat was tender and not bland. You gotta dine in there to taste its freshest point.
Then comes to Coney Dog, which is one of their signature item since last time! Those days it was only available in Beef. I am very happy that now they’ve added chicken selection on Coney Dog, for non-beef eaters.
Not forgetting also the waffle! Its a classic item too. I still think the waffle is nice compared to some cafes which charge you at high price. Introducing the new flavor, Cendol Gula Melaka. Do you know that this waffle is now available in cup too? Its more convenient for takeaway orders.
If malam-malam mau supper, can opt for Drive-Thru too. 🙂

Thank you for the short trip to memory lane! 🙂 We also had A&W here in the Philippines, but the locations closed one by one in the 2000s — with the last branch shutting down in 2004.
A&W always brought back my childhood memories and it is because I grew up in PJ for a few years before going back to Labuan / Sabah. Having a big mug of rootbeer float really super satisfying but the price is not justifiable to have it weekly unlike KFC or McD.
Indeed bring back our childhood memories. Till now i still love their A&W Root beer with Float. hahaha
The first time I had A & W was in Singapore in 1969. I had the “chicken in a basket” – never saw it at any outlet in the more recent years…and of course, I had the root beer…and also the root beer float. First time out of Sarawak, never seen such things before.
