    There are pictures on Twitter of queues stretching outside and around the block *

    The prices look horrendous. I know we can't expect Filipino prices in the UK, but neither did I expect Jollibee to price themselves at the high end of the fast food market.


    * I cannot verify the authenticity of the pictures so possibly fake news by Filipino Twitter Troll Farms.

    Yea when we arrived we looked at both restaurants then with a quick Bisayan conversation we seemingly opted for Lutong Pinoy.

    There were restaurants of various nationalities around there. As we walked past the Lebanese restaurant at the top of that road I did wonder what delights would be served in there.

    Those prices seem comparable to McDo and KFC albeit the buckets seem a little higher priced. If I had a choice of those 3 I’d opt for KFC.

    Your right,i always say theres a reason there are so many Thai and so few pinoy restaurants in this country :ninja: I have been spending quite a bit of time in Canada over the last 3-4 years,massive pinoy community,huge actually,and still theres not a great number of pinoy establishments in Ottawa or Toronto.Jolibee opened a store in Toronto last april,people queued for 17 hours,jollibees first Canadian store in Winnipeg? had to issue tickets for the first 2-3 WEEKS due to popular demand,I am in London almost daily but will give the delights of Jollibee a miss :cry:

    One of our friends did go there, it was terribly expensive and well below the usual low of an underaverage Jollibee

    We were in London recently getting a passport renewed. My only experience of JB's was in Surigao and it was terrible. I had promised Mica we would go... Luckily Mica's friends in London said that is was very busy in the evening so we had to downgrade our evening to a fabulous Thai in Soho.... Its very success saved me.
