Believe it or not, our first meal in Canada was from an A&W Drive Through. They carry completely different things from their counterparts in Malaysia and Indonesia – all kinds of burgers and fries, although they do also have root beer floats.
We were famished at the time, having been laid up in Chicago for 4 hours eating rangoons from Manchu Wok and deep dish pizza from Reggio’s:
and that was all we had to tide us over until 10pm, which was when we saw the lovely inviting lights of A&W before turning into Benjamin Drive, where the hotel was located:
Hands up if you knew what A&W stood for:
Their sweet potato fries were amazing. Excellent seasoning, and they served them with this chipotle aioli which went perfectly with the fries.
The burgers were also good – I had mine with mozzarella and I think L’s one had provolone. There’s something to be said about beef in countries which actually have cows.
