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?
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.
