Jollibee Filipino Burger Chain report

Alexandra | Mar 4, 200306:30 PM

I pigged out at Jollibee Union City yesterday, and wanted to share what I had (maybe that'll make me feel better).

I got the Aloha Meal, which came with fries (standard fast food fries - pretty much the same as McDonalds or Burger King), a fountain drink, and the Aloha Burger, a super high calorie and delicious burger (as fast food goes). The Aloha featuers a fried beef patty (not grilled, unfortunately) with cheese (standard), a pineapple ring (from a can), tender bacon, and some special creamy sauce (mostly mayonnaise). Very tasty burger, but don't go there on a diet.

Also tried a Peach Mango Pie, just like McDonalds Apple Pie (same shape, same packaging), but not nearly as good. The filling was all right, but the crust tasted HIGHLY deep fried. I couldn't finish it, but it's good I couldn't because Krispy Kreme was right next door.

The other thing on their menu that seemed interesting was the Palabok Fiesta (rice noodles with a shrimp/pork sauce over top, garnished with shrimp and hard-boiled egg). Things that did not seem interesting: Spaghetti Special (I can't figure out what's special about it, since it looked like Chef Boyardee with grated cheddar on top), the fried chicken (with various pretty standard sides to choose from), and the Regular Yum! burger (just a plain burger on a bun with some of their special sauce).

Jollibee is a Filipino chain that now has 8 locations in California (SF 4th and Folsom, Union City, and Daly City, to mention a few), as well as outlets in Vietnam, Indonesia, Guam, and Brunei.
