Jollibee has been receiving a lot of buzz overseas recently.

More foreigners are getting curious as to why hundreds would line up in the cold and drive up for hours just to get a taste of the Filipino fast food chain’s eats.

Famous restaurant and food website, Eater New York, tried to discover why Filipinos and even foreigners are obsessed with Jollibee, which it dubbed as “the world’s premier Filipino fast food chain.”

Eater NY news editor Serena Dai stopped by at Jollibee’s branch in Woodside, Queens, New York, and brought along Fil-Am celebrity chef and Dale Talde to taste its “langhap sarap” meals.

The two foodies gorged themselves with the Pinoy food chain’s famous chickenjoy, Jolly Spaghetti, Champ, classics like Pancit Palabok, pandesal sandwiches, chicken sotanghon soup, and for dessert — the toothsome peach mango pie.

“I can see if, you know, if I grew up on Jollibee and then I didn’t have it, and it showed up in my town. I’d freak out. It’s that specific kind of texture and flavor you cant get,” Dai said upon tasting Jollibee’s crispy chicken.

Besides chickenjoy, Dai seemed to also love the peach mango pie. “The pastry’s almost savory,” she stated.

For Chef Dale, who’s a self-confessed Jollibee lover, what makes Jollibee meals special is that each of it “feels like something homemade” despite it being served at a fast food restaurant.
