I was pre-occupied with reading up about hard drives, as I’m intending to buy an EHD, when I remembered to check on something at the online portal of New York Mag and discovered this good development.
Was I thrilled for my husband when I read the news that Jollibee, the fast food chain based in the Philippines has finally found its new home in Woodside Queens: Woodside, is touted as the little Manila here in New York.
Jollibee is an American-style fast food resto where you’ll find Filipino- influenced foods that range from burgers, spaghetti, chicken and several local Pinoy dishes. The mascot, as pictured above is also aptly named as Jollibee: the large bee wearing a blazer, shirt and a chef’s hat.
With this latest development, we might find ourselves driving more often to Queens. If you ask me though, I’m not that comfortable going all the way there , but knowing how my husband fancies their food (palabok), it may be difficult for me to always say no.
I’ve heard of long lines since its opening last February 14, and that a lot of Filipinos can’t even bear to brave the long lines. When I say long lines, it is really out the door, which means one has to wait outside. I guess, my husband has to wait a lot longer before he gets to taste his palabok, a Filipino pasta dish that I have never made in my entire life. I’m not quite sure why he loves this dish, because a lot of other restaurants make a better version of palabok.
