Jollibee is a fast food franchise that is very popular in the Philippines. It is one of the biggest competitor for McDonald’s in the Philippines. Jollibee has been establishing footprints here in the United States where there are a lot of Filipino populations. It is big in the west coast, specifically California. They opened in Virginia, New York and now in New Jersey.
They are well known for their chicken joy and palabok (this is the Filipino version of spaghetti). There are a lot of dishes to choose from and they not only cater to Filipino palate but to Americans as well. My kids and friends believed that their chicken is the best, but there is no way for me to validate that opinion since I don’t eat chicken (by choice and not by anything else).
It was an hour drive from Blue Army Shrine (Washington, NJ) to Jersey City, we decided to stop by Jollibee before heading home. We were lucky because there was not much wait as compared to its opening (I guess). We heard that during its opening through several weeks afterwards that there was a long wait. I would estimate that the place sits about 100, this is bigger compared to that in Queens, NY and a lot smaller compared to that in California.
I ordered Hawaiian burger (the slice of pineapple must be the reason why it’s Hawaiian), palabok and sago (beverage with simple syrup and tapioca and gel). As always, the food looks great in the picture but the actual food was no way near the picture representation, misinformation? For other pictures please click here.
