Jollibee has been serving the people tasty and affordable Filipino favorites since 1978. From its first five branches, it has grown to be a leading food retail company in the Philippines with a total of 5,827 restaurants. Jollibee Corporation’s roster also includes Chowking, Burger King, Red Robbin, and Panda Express. Jollibee‘s menu includes a lot of Filipino staples like Jollibee Chickenjoy, Jollibee Fries, and Jollibee Burger Steak.
Of course, we always welcome new favorites. Recently, the fastfood leader resurrected an old dish called Jollibee Honey Beef Rice, and based on our experience with the offering, we feel like it has the potential for a long-term niche fanbase. Here’s why:
Our order through Food Panda arrived hot and on time. Feeling the warmth at the bottom of the container is always an encouraging thing for food deliveries. Also, the food was neatly packed with no sauce spills. Good job on the packing and handling!
Jollibee Honey Beef Rice: Thoughts on the Taste
We ate it for two dinners straight. The meal comprises of nicely cut sukiyaki beef, onions, and a sweet-savory sauce, with the beef having much less fat than we expected (Yay!). We weren’t so sold on the taste the first time around. It was like like a mix of gyudon and Filipino beef steak, which made it confusing for our palate on what to focus on. The next night we had it and had already been familiarized with its flavor, we quite liked it. It’s safe to say that for some people like us, Jollibee Honey Beef Rice is a learned taste. Once you’ve acquired it though, you’ll crave for more!
For Php 149 (ala carte), and Php 169 (with drink), it is definitely a worthy choice for days when you feel like eating a lot of rice. Yes, the meal does include a big chunk of rice, which made us wish that it had more beef and sauce for a more satisfying gustatory experience. It is also available in Family Pan sizes for Php 825 (good for six) and Php 1,056 (good for eight).
Will we be buying again? Definitely!
