    Surprised there isn't one already really. There is more Filipinos per capita in Canada than any of the western countries and Toronto is its biggest city.

    In Ottawa at the moment. Massive amount of Filipinos, I think they are Canada biggest immigrant group? Lots of Thai restaurants but still haven't seen a Filipino eatery.

    There would have to be a lot of Filipinos in the area for a jollibee to thrive, extra sugar on the spaghetti has limited appeal :sick:

    We were in Hong Kong recently, and naturally, the nearest Jollibee received a visit. :D

    Nobody is asking you to.

    If our families like them.... who are we to control their tastes ?

    I would add, that the Hong Kong version's food was a lot better quality than that I've tasted in the Phils.

    I've been into the one in Earl's Court. We occasionally go there to go to the Filipino Supermarkets so went in Jolibee one time, as much out of curiosity value as anything.

    When it opened, people were queuing out on the streets for about 8 hours just to get in, which is ridiculous really. By the time we went we could go straight to the counter, but the main problem is with getting a seat as it is quite small inside.

    It's fine for what it is. It's fast food. That's it.

    It is what it is and we all know the good points and bad points, if you don't like them stay out!
    Me I take them for what they are a fast food establishment that appeals to many for convenience.

    Fast food junk food, call it what you want. Jolly bee is on the bottom run when it comes to fast food at least in the Philippines. Can't comment about Jollies in Foreign countries as I have never visited one and never will.
