    And there was A&W opposite...and I do not believe there were macdonalds then
    I cant verify that too...But I am pretty sure it was most popular outlet. Particularly, we head to this outlet after movie at Hollywood cinema.

    orange julius at cathay cinema rings a bell? Drinking the orange juice was like a must have.

    A&W was the undoubted king of fastfood. There is something about its rootbeer which no fastfood of today can ever come close. Served with a cold beer mug, vanilla cream flavour in the root beer.

    How about the A&W that was near to the old IE, between Bukit Timah and Dunean Road?
    I hate to say this, that is probably one of the most missed fast food....always pack. wonder how they committed suicide when they used to be that great.

    Ya man.... I recall how they would freeze all the mugs which you can see over the counter and when you order you see them pour the Root Beer in....yummmmmm.... I think I spent the most time in an A&W outlet (at Kallang) then all the others fast food back then.

    Haha. Yes. A&W Dunearn Road, near the Novotel Orchid Inn? And all the plant nurseries along the big longkang. I used to study at Swiss Cottage @ Dunearn Road, so that whole stretch holds a lot of memories for me. Heavy rain + high tide = sure flood one!

    My earliest memory of KFC would be at Bedok, near where Oriental Emporium (another blast from the past) used to be.

    Cant to it, remember they always place it on the tray while the sizzle is still overflowing from the dispenser. In the olden days, KFC place their dispenser behind the cashier instead of front.
