One fine Sunday afternoon, you find yourself craving for some fast food classics (thanks to the show you were watching late last night). You can’t seem to narrow them down, but one thing you do know is that there are a plethora of famous fast food chains within Sunway City Kuala Lumpur – ranging from Korean fried chicken to classic burgers and fries.
You were still deciding on which to go as you slowly drifted off to sleep…

Speciality: Hotdogs and their Signature Root Beer Floats
You are greeted by Rooty the Great Root Bear’s welcoming smile. “Looking for a fast and easy place to eat?” he asked with raised eyebrows.
As if on demand, your mouth drools over the aroma of root beer and delicious coney dogs – triggering memories of the past where your parents used to bring you here as a kid. You take a seat and order a beef coney hot dog covered with their signature coney sauce and of course, their waffles and ice-cream!
Fun fact: A&W Root Beer is older than sliced bread! The first glass of A&W Root Beer was poured in 1919, while sliced bread was introduced to the world in 1928.

The realisation hits you – this is a battle of the fried chicken!
Jollibee introduces their fiery breaded Spicy Chickenjoy, perfectly marinated and breaded to perfection. It’s not a complete meal without their signature Jolly Sweet Spaghetti, served with a sweet tomato sauce.

Last but certainly not least, Jinjja Chicken tears your attention away with a menu of classic Korean cuisines such as their best-selling Korean fried chicken and Jjajangmyeon. They even have dishes like tteobokki and bibimbap, prepared with traditional methods to preserve the authenticity. In the moment you were about to make your pick, you disappeared.
