Most Filipino kids grew up eating at Jollibee, celebrating birthdays at Jollibee, and even as yuppies would eat at Jollibee.  And when these kids get married, the whole cycle starts again.  Jollibee is one of the most successful food venture in the Philippines that has created it’s niche not only in the market, but also in the Filipino culture.

I actually grew up together with Jollibee having the same birth year which I will not disclose here.  😀  So you can say, the Bee and I kinda grew up together. 😉

When we moved here to Vietnam, although I don’t eat at Jollibee a whole lot, it’s kinda comforting that something from home thrives in the Vietnamese arena — makes you feel that every Filipino can make it anywhere.

As most establishments here in Vietnam, Jollibee is located in a 3-floor narrow building — not spacious enough for kiddie parties. 😦  See how small each floor is?

When we got here in 2009, they were still serving gravy together with their famous Jollibee Chickenjoy.  Now it’s just ketchup or this chili sauce.

But as you can see, unlike in the Philippines, the Chickenjoy here is served with tomato, lettuce, cucumber, and rice topped with onion springs.  Looks healthy, huh?  I personally don’t like the onion springs on my rice so I carefully remove that.  However, the chicken is just like how they make it back home!  Yum!

If you’d like to know, my meal (with regular softdrink) cost me 32,000 VND which is roughly PhP 64.  How much is it now back home?

Jollibee serve sundaes here too and true to the Vietnamese taste, they have a coffee-flavored sundae which I have yet to try.

Jollibee in Vietnam serves Pepsi products only.  Is it the same in the Philippines?

So if you happen to pass by Vietnam and is craving for a taste of good ole Jollibee Chickenjoy, you’ll be happy to know that the Bee has a lot of hives here.

Find Jollibee in District 1 at 194D Pasteur St. or check out their locations here.  They do delivery BUT be verrrrrrry patient. 🙂  Call them up at (08) 38237000.

    Love Jollibee! Do they deliver to D7?? 😀

  2. I was just there 2 days ago and the price is way cheaper than in the phls. Lol.

  3. I was half asleep on the bus ride going to the Cu Chi Tunnels, then I saw JOLLIBEE! I was awake and wanted to hop off the bus. It’s nice to see Filipino things outside of the Philippines and even though I get lots of Jollibee back here, it just feels different.

    Coca Cola is still the king of beverages in the Philippines so they have that instead of Pepsi. 🙂
