I finally did it. I went to Jollibee. Sure, sure, going to some only relatively new-ish fast food place that’s been covered before isn’t exactly daring, but it took me a minute to enter the Philipines’ greatest fast food success.
While I’d heard the Jollibee offered some odd things, I stuck to the relatively normal and standard yumburger and fries. Of course, I also grabbed a jolly hot dog because it was cheap and I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have some backup just in case the yumburger didn’t turn out to be so yummy. Wow, was that the best idea ever. I got back to the office with yumburger in hand and before long the hallways were echoing with people yelling “Ew! This is gross” before looking to their closet coworker and saying “Hey, try this.” The rubbery patty and indescribably weird taste it left me with were almost enough to ruin lunch. The yumburger was bad news, but then we jumped into the jolly hot dog. The jolly hot dog was awesome! It had some sort of tangy semi-cheese sauce on it, with some ketchup and cheese and it was great. It really salvaged the whole experience for me.
Ultimately, I’d go back in a second for that jolly hot dog, it was some good fun but that yumburger needs to be renamed the grossburger. Has anyone else braved the Jollibee? Tell me what you think.
