Grandy’s
user posted image
They were around for a while.

Grandy’s, also known as Grandy’s Country Cooking, is best remembered for its fried chicken. It was marketed as an American fast food chain and featured many typical southern favourites.

Apart from the usual burgers, Grandy’s had a Country Fried Steak meal consisting of a slab of crispy boneless chicken, with sides of boiled corn and mashed potatoes. Many also remember their chicken porridge and refillable soft drinks. Another unique thing they had were cinnamon rolls.

There was an outlet open at Subang Parade in the early 1990s, and another one at Ampang. Apparently there were plenty of outlets all over Malaysia, but they slowly disappeared as the new millennium came around.

One of the lasting marks that Grandy’s left was probably their TV Commercial, which has been preserved on YouTube.

White Castle

Just in case you were wondering how small the burgers were, here are some drinks for scale.

You may be thinking “ Hey! I’ve heard of this name before in some movie”. You may be thinking about the show Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. The thing is, way before the movie was released, Malaysia had its own chain of White Castle restaurants, serving their signature sliders.

user posted image
(If you’re wondering what a slider is, it’s basically a really small burger and you’d have to eat a whole bunch to feel full.)

There was definitely one in Jalan Raja Laut, at the intersection with Jalan Chow Kit, which is currently occupied by a KFC restaurant. Some also remember one opening at Aeon Taman Maluri.

In case you were wondering where White Castle was in KL

Those growing up in Malacca will remember that one outlet opened up along the same row as Great Wall shopping centre, near Soon Seng Plaza.

There were some complaints that their burgers were too small and consumers seemed to prefer the standard palm-sized burgers all the other fast food places were offering, so this might have contributed to its decline.

Shakey’s Pizza

user posted image
One of the last Shakey’s outlet left standing was at The Summit, USJ.

Shakey’s is one of the first foreign pizza brands to make it to Malaysian shores, and at one time in the early 1990s, there seemed to be one outlet everywhere you turned in the Klang Valley. The first Shakey’s outlet actually opened in 1978, way before Pizza Hut even showed up.

Shakey’s pizzas were delicious and many mentioned that they were very generous with their toppings. They were also known for their pastas and fried chicken. However, one of their sides that was a fan favourite was their Mojos, which were deep fried potato discs.

They survived quite long, but were bought over by another pizza chain. The last Shakey’s outlet closed in 2009.

Hartz Chicken Buffet

user posted image
The last Hartz Chicken Outlet was at Sunway Pyramid, and we sure miss it.

Hartz Chicken Buffet is an American brand. They introduced a new dining concept to Malaysian in the mid 1990s. When they started out, they offered a huge variety of dishes cooked according to authentic American Recipes. Basically, you pay a flat rate of about RM15 (when they first opened) and you could help yourself to all the chicken you wanted: fried, roasted, grilled and more.

There were also a bunch of interesting side dishes, like mashed potatoes, pasta, fried potatoes, coleslaw, casseroles and salad. The highlight was definitely the dessert, where diners could choose from a whole lot of pies, cakes and ice cream.

user posted image
Just look at that roasted chicken. Doesn’t it make your mouth water?

In Peninsular Malaysia, the menu changed somewhere after the early 2000s, and they included local dishes like fried rice, steamed veggies and white rice. However, the quality of food and service began to mysteriously decline after that, leading to them closing their last branch in Sunway Pyramid somewhere in 2013/2014.

If you’re curious, there one last Hartz Chicken Buffet left standing in Kuching, which apparently still offers dishes straight from the US franchise without localisation.

McDota

user posted image
Some of the McDota outlets of yesteryear. Do you recognise any?

Before KFC ever made an appearance in Malaysia, locals would hang out at McDota for their fried chicken fix.

Surprisingly though, McDota still has one outlet left, in Segamat, Johor.

McDota is a home grown brand, and their menu offers all the basics of fast food like fries, fried chicken, nuggets and burgers. According to their website, they started operating in 1978 but failed to sustain their business, most probably due to heavy competition with several foreign brands trying to set up shop here during the same time.

When they started out, their menu items were really simple. A McDota snack plate consisted of one piece of fried chicken, two buns and a drink.

user posted image
McDota’s menu when they first started.

The fact that at least one branch survives in Segamat is a real testament to the brand’s tenacity to hold on throughout the changing decades. It should be noted that they’ve added some new items to their menu since the 80s, like rice and roasted chicken, so head on down to Segamat for a taste of nostalgia.

Fast food brands come and go in Malaysia, but certain brands definitely make us more sentimental and nostalgic, especially if you have a pleasant memory related to it.

Used to work for peanuts at shakey's pizza

I heard they bought domino's but not the another way round

Domino's was so good in their delivery service compare to shakey's

Maybe the owner thinks domino's is better thus closing shakey's to avoid competition

Both A&W and Burger King is trying to come back, but not doing that very well. I think Carl's Jr is the next one to exit first.

Actually A&W fried chicken is the best (after Shakeys) compared to kfc & mcd. But their quality is freaking inconsistent. No idea what chicken they used, so small its like chicken infanticide.

Kuching still got two Hartz Chicken branches, both still going strong. The one in Sarawak Plaza is already 20+ years old, and another one at Jalan Satok, more than 10+ years old already. Last time I went to SP branch earlier this year, the price is RM23.50.
