.

When the Jollibee fast-food franchise began in the 1980s it was marketed as the Filipino answer to McDonalds. The TV commercials pandered to Filipino nationalism and to say that you didn't care for the food was tantamount to treason. Sadly, the food is disgusting, but in the Philippines you won't find anyone admitting that out loud. To be Filipino is to love Jollibee. The thing to remember is that this is third-world fast food. You may ask: Why is the spaghetti so sweet? Because the ??sauce? is actually ketchup made from bananas. No joke. They dye it red to make it look like ketchup. The brand is called ??Jufran? and you can google it if you don't believe me. Now, if they??re making ketchup out of bananas you got to wonder what unspeakable horrors constitute some of the other ingredients. Don't ask.

Anthropology students who want to know how people eat in poor hot countries ?? this is the place for you. Otherwise, give Jollibee a wide, wide berth.

Jollibee is one of those places you HAVE to go to when you go home to the Philippines and the U.S. killed it. The American version is just not good. Sometimes things are just better left where they are. Why ruin a good thing?

This place is the McDonald?s equivalent in the Philippines. There was one in every corner of Manila, so it was quite a shock for me when I saw one here in the states. Though it doesn?t have the best (or healthiest) food, this food brings upon a wave of nostalgia. I remember their macaroni soup was surprisingly good~ but beware if you ever order coke there, last time I went, it tasted like black licorice.

Where else can you find fried chicken and white rice served together?!!
I grew up in the Philippines and we eat everything with rice. I now live in Chicago and miss eating at Jollibee. I was visiting a childhood friend in the L.A. area and she asked me upon my arrival whether I wanted to get tacos or Jollibee. Jollibee of course! You have to try Chicken Joy, it's served with rice (as mentioned) and gravy! Yummy!

Pros: Chicken Joy

.

A popular Filipino fast food restaurant that offers unusual burgers like the "Aloha Burger" (that has a slice of pineapple on top of a teriyaki-flavored patty) and items like the "chicken joy" (fried chicken with rice) and bihon noodles with shrimp sauce. I always eat at Jollibees when I'm in the Philippines (it's their number 1 fast food chain) and was delighted to know that they also exist in Southern California. Definitely a great alternative to the usual McDonalds or Burger King, especially if you would like rice with your meal.
