In Search For A Waffle

The Daddy wanted to eat waffles two weeks ago, and off we went to Cheras to find one, one fine Saturday night.

Somehow, we ended up eating other stuff that night.
Coney Dog for the Daddy and Mommy & the Kiddo had Supreme Dog. We had wanted to eat something else but the only menu that was shown at the counter was the SenSavers (which was ONLY applicable on weekdays 12pm-3pm) and we were there on a weekend. At night.

The on-duty manager and staff weren't that helpful with suggesting the menu either so no waffles were ordered that night. It was either the value sets that we can't order or limited ala carte options. Weird...

Actually, what happened to their combo meals? Not offering it at Damai Perdana branch, I wonder?
Mommy decided to try their Cheesy Macho Nachos. Verdict? Look at it. Does it look at all appetising??? Then again, Son seems to like it just fine.

We had the other side dish that was on promotion too - the onion rings and fries. My advice. Save your $$$. Skip them.

But their "dogs" are good. That's what we always eat if we're at A&W anyway. The Coney Dogs and Supreme Dogs are unique too, as you don't get hot dogs at other fast food outlet, right? But that's about it lah...

Anyway, finally got our waffles last week, when we were en route to Shah Alam, at the Batu 3 outlet.
Again, waffles weren't featured in their menu and we had to ask whether they are still offering them. Got the waffles. The poor boys shared hard as board waffles between them but lucky Mommy had a newly cooked, soft waffles.

Well, for both visits we still managed to enjoy their A&W rootbeer in chilled glasses. Small pleasures there. Hur hur

  1. the nachos look ... erm, sad!

    you should buy a waffle maker la, save the trouble! or a waffle mould. I saw a waffle mould at Daiso the other day and contemplated it, but didn't buy it in the end. :D

    1. You know, I always have this suspicion... If I buy, then I probably won't have the craving anymore. LOL

  2. Still remember my 1st A&W waffle. I doubted that the plastic knife can cut thru the waffle. Tapi...memang la they've perfected the waffle. Just nice crispiness on the outside and soft on the inside.
    Waffle in last photo looks yummeh. Also noticed the tshirt. MWM kaa?

  3. When I was a kid in Penang, I remembered that A&W was the first and only fast food chain at that PJ State. My uncle always took me there when my family visited KL. I would go back to school and brag about it. Now that outlet is still there but much of their food in the menu needs HELP! Esp the fried chicken that was coated with some saw dusts and tasted like fried pieces of wood. I thought the Ayam Tua was like 85 years old.

    1. while many of their outlets have closed down, that PJ Drive-through outlet is still there and i guess many PJ people love going there too..

    2. I went to the PJ one a few times recently. Can't say it was nice. Rundown actually. But I guess it's still an easy place to hangout, rather than going into the nearby mall.

  4. I still love to eat waffles with jam and ice cream. We seem to have very similar interests and taste lah.

    2. I so long never tried the stall punya waffle. Last time, in front of Carrefour also got, right?

      Yalah, why we didn't just go and buy them at Petronas station? My housing area punya Petronas station also got sell! Hahaha

  8. Once I wanna make my own waffles, but I rather buy it easier because we don't eat it all the time. I love my waffles with peanut butter and strawberry jam - yumz.

  9. HeLLo Lina,
    Sometimes what we planned to eat didn't work. I experienced it. We wanted to eat pizza but ended up eating chicken wings and cheesy rice. Huhu!

    1. Perfectly normal, I agree to change.

      But when you change because of incompetence, then a bit sakit hati lorr.... :P

  10. The Coney Dog looks large to me. I wonder whether I can find that size here in Kuching. The Cheesy Macho Nachos didn't look appetizing but maybe the taste was fine. That's y your son loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  11. For your information, we don't have A&W outlet in Kuching. Sad isn't it?

  16. oh A&W.. i like their coney dog and root beer (float, but i think lately i just prefer plain root beer without the float).. their curly fries used to be nice, but then i prefer their fries now.. and oh, i like their fried chicken too, i think they are better than THAT chain at times..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We are opting for the plain root beer too now! Same!

      THAT chain - haish... sometimes, the chicken smell la... But I still go a few times. *gila*

      Delete
    2. eih, not good that your chicken smells like chicken meh?? muahahahaha.. but yeah, i still go sometimes albeit~~ :D

      Delete
  17. those are the few things, and only few things, that i would order when i go to A&W (actually seldom also, because they have not got a lot of outlets too huh??).. never had their waffle before, and since when they have the nachos?? haha, errrr, doesn't look appetizing to me at all - maybe only kids would like them~~ :p

    1. Nachos is a new promo la. Prominently displayed on the counter, at the expense of other "normal" items

      Delete
  18. adoi.. were you there when they are about to close?? why hasn't they have much choices on the menu, and when asked it was like "apa pun tarak"?? luckily, at least, you had the coney dogs, at least something that i think they are good at..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That one also got to ask. Ask menu, no show menu. Haiz

      Delete
  19. oh, they changed the packaging for the dogs!! now that seems a lot better.. i remember once they have this "thought very innovative" packaging, half cardboard half paper, but i really find that not ergonomic at all lah, the cardboard was suppose to support but then i find it obstructing me to grab the dog, and the paper should be used to wrap around the dog when i grab it, but because of the cardboard i cannot do that.. duh~~

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yalah, that errrm... unique packaging. This one easier. Less wasteful also.

      Delete
    2. i still like them wrapped in papers lah, no need boxes.. wrapped in paper more senang, just unwrap half to makan and hold on to the other half..
