jollibee buzzing in the big apple!


just saw this on angryasianman.com:

"New York, rejoice. You're getting a Jollibee. Over the weekend, Filipino Americans in Woodside, Queens welcomed its very own Jolllibee, the Filipino fast food chain restaurant -- the first location on the East Coast: Fast Food for the Filipino Soul."

the only times i've ever eaten at jollibee were with family in some enormous mall in manila between shopping and ice skating. i know. random!? and i remember being shocked that my grandmother's spaghetti was a knock off of the jollibee recipe. :) ma sarap!

personally, i hope chicago is the next stop for jollibee. and hopefully, jane and john q. newyork like the menu items better than these folks. eek.

btw - is it just me or are those four caucasian kids (twirlie, hetty, popo and yum) in "jollietown" with the pilipino accents??

I had tossed this up on Twitter earlier this week because I was eccstatic over Jollibee's coming to the East Coast! Now if only they were to open a location in Cleveland...

Scratch beneath the surface, the image - sometimes what you will find is a surprise - sometimes not.
Scratch away . . .

Hi, I think the correct spelling should be Jollitown!
