All The Unique Jollibee Dishes All Over The World
More reasons to travel and eat!
A lot of us grew up with Jollibee being our favorite pasalubong from our parents when they get home from work. For some, it's the ultimate comfort food we treat ourselves to after a long day.
If you're traveling around the world and craving a taste of home, Jollibee has now expanded its horizons and opened branches in international shores (to the delight of overseas Filipino workers everywhere)-from the Middle East, East Asia, Southeast Asia, all the way to Europe and North America. You might be surprised to see some unfamiliar Jollibee items on international menus that aren't available in the Philippines. Game to try them all? Here are some of the unique Jollibee dishes all over the world:
1 Vietnam: Chili Chicken, Fish Nuggets, Squid Rings, Milk Tea, and Ovaltine drink
Did you know that Vietnam has the cheapest Chickenjoy out of all the local and international Jollibee branches combined? For Chickenjoy to suit the palate of the Vietnamese locals, they needed to change the flavor of the Chickenjoy (without completely losing its signature taste), and the side dishes served along with it. Instead of the original and spicy Chickenjoy, Vietnam glazes it with sweet chili sauce, served with salad and chicken soup on the side.

Jollibee's Chickenjoy is paired with Biryani rice instead of the usual steamed white rice in UAE.

3 Kuwait: Spicy Chickenjoy with Kabsa Rice
Jollibee Kuwait, another branch in the Middle East, serves the Chickenjoy with Kabsa rice. The Kabsa rice is usually made with long-grain rice (almost always Basmati!), meat, vegetables, and a blend of spices. Black pepper, cloves, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, black lime, bay leaves (or what we usually call as
4 USA: Chicken Dippers
We all enjoy stripping Chickenjoy to the bone, but sometimes it's just too much of a hassle. If you're planning a trip to the United States of America, make sure to drop by one of their Jollibee branches and try the chicken dippers. Basically, these are boneless Chickenjoy fingers you can dip in their gravy!
5 Macau: Chicken Tenders
Similar to Jollibee USA's chicken dippers, Jollibee Macau also has their own version! Jollibee Macau's chicken tenders are also boneless Chickenjoy fingers. The only difference between the two chicken fingers is that you can dip the Chicken Tenders in garlic mayo or sweet chili dip. This is also served in Hong Kong, which pairs it with a mayo dip or a sweet chili dip.
