Just how much do Singaporeans miss A&W? Just look at the massive lines thronging the American fast food chain’s comeback franchised outlet in Singapore, which opened to the public yesterday (April 11) via a ticketed preview at Jewel Changi Airport. The mall officially opens on April 17.

Okay, it has been 16 years since A&W exited from our shores in 2003 after all. We’re guessing many of the customers who showed up did so out of nostalgia, like we did. In fact, we were the first ‘customer’ at the eatery yesterday, where a grinning Rooty the bear mascot statue holding a root beer mug stood gleaming beside A&W’s distinctively orange-hued ordering counter. Ahh, our childhood is back!
