Okay, so A&W is confirmed to be coming back, and that has sent Singaporeans into a frenzy.

But let’s face it: A&W isn’t the only fast-food restaurant that we all miss like siao. There’re many more that has once stepped into our shores, captured our hearts and then broken them.

Do you remember any of these?



The fast-food chain opened in the 80’s then left in 90’s. It came back in 2009 with plans to expand to 35 outlets but has since quietly left Singapore again. Many of us, in fact, fall in love with it only when they’re gone…kinda of absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Their baked potatoes will be missed.


Taco Bell


This fast-food chain left Singapore in 2008 because tacos weren’t exactly suitable for the taste buds of many Singaporeans. Seems like we still prefer our cai png and lor mee after all.

But now, we all want it because because it’s starting to get boring when all fast-food restaurants are all about burgers and fried chicken.



The sister chain of Carl’s Junior also withdrew from Singapore’s shores several years ago due to the lack of success. Honestly, I have never heard of such a restaurant, but I guess if anybody misses the food from Hardee’s, you can still taste it at Carl’s Junior.

Milano’s Pizza


The franchise opened in 1984 and was a rival for Pizza Hut. However, they closed in the mid-nineties, when some of you weren’t born then. Several of the outlets were claimed by another of Milano’s rival – Domino’s, which is still standing tall today.

Big Rooster


Some of the uncles and aunties may know about this fast-food chain that opened in 1984 at Orchard Road but has also since left Singapore for good. In fact, unless you’re born before 1980, you might not have any memory of this restaurant from Papua New Guinea.


Well, at least we’ve got Chic-A-Boo now.

So, out of the five, which one do you miss most? Pretty sure 90% of you are saying “Wendy’s”.

Now, Wendy’s, if you reading this, here goes: We all miss you. Come back soon; we promise the only flood that comes to you will only be a flood of people.
