Jollibee began as an ice-cream parlor in 1975 in the Philippines. However, founder Tony Tan Caktiong soon saw that sandwiches and burgers offered more potential, so he studied U.S. fast-food systems and revamped his concept before incorporating Jollibee in 1978. Shares of the parent company, Jollibee Foods Corp., are traded publicly on the Philippine stock market.
Jollibee officials like to characterize the chain's menu as American fast-food favorites "prepared with an Asian-Pacific flair." What that means, is that many of the offerings feature more spices and a "slightly sweeter" flavor profile than that of their traditional counterparts.
Jollibee is to the Philippines what McDonald's is to America. They've since opened up quite a number of locations in the States. If I'm correct, this location in Daly City may have been the first one. Before they opened up one in Vallejo (which is no longer there for some reason)
Favorite Dish: Much of Jollibee's success at home and abroad is tied to the greater variety of foods found on its menu compared with the bill of fare at many quick-service chains, company officials have said. Along with soft drinks, fries and burgers - including the best-selling double-patty Champ and pineapple-bacon-and-cheese topped Aloha - Jollibee sells fried, bone-in chicken, all-beef hot dogs, spaghetti, rice-based JolliMeals, such as Salisbury steak, and a turnoverlike peach-mango pie.
Jolibee Hot Dog at $ 2.50, Jolibee Chicken joy 3 pieces at $ 6.00, Pearl Coolers Buko Pandan and Ube (Purple yam) at $ 2.99 each, Halo Halo at $ 4.99 (in the Philippines, pearl coolers are products of Greenwhich Pizza and Halo Halo is the Product of Chowking of which are sister companies of jollibee, I don't know why they mix their products here in the states in jolibee). Food is awesome (for a Pinoy palate). Place is good, usually loaded with free Fil-Am newspapers. Parking is very good since it's in Mission Plaza. Service needs improvement though.
Serves Filipino Ethnic and International kinds of Breads and pastries
this bakeshop has lots of branches in the west coast and hawaii and is a fil-am institution
you can buy Pandesal (salt bread w/ fillings) at $ 1 or a Bibingkas (rice flour bread baked in special oven) at $ 1 and a lot more!
Favorite Dish: the Pandesal bread with fillings inside (it is four times the size of a regular pandesal in the philippines) at $ 1. the assorted ensaymada breads at $ 1.20 and the Bibingka at $ 1.
This is old world restaurant atmosphere, where you will feel at home the minute you walk throught the door. The bar is dimly lit and inviting, and the restaurant will remind you of the first good restaurant your parents ever took you to for dinner.
Favorite Dish: Joe's Scramble, and the Steak a la Bruno.
This is one of the older restaurants in the area, but the quality remains high. There are always long waits at dinnertime, but if you arrive at 4-5 PM, there's usually hardly a wait. Two rooms to the restaurant, plus a bar. One room overlooks a couple boulevards, but no special views other than that. The food doesn't disappoint. Average prices, good food, good atmosphere. I'd recommend it if you're in the area.
nice place and convenient since it is located in my favorite sprawling serramonte mall
