So how is Jollibee Singapore? Everybody I have spoken to about the new Jollibee warned me that the best course of practice would be to avoid the place for the next six months until the queues had calmed down. News reports and rumours from friends confirmed that the crowds at Jollibee were extremely high and approaching levels only seen before in Singapore when Ikea discounted its meatballs one day to ten cents. However, unable to contain my curiousity for six months, I found myself braving the hordes of chickenjoy addicts and joining the throng just ten days after its opening day.
At first glance the queue was not so bad – no worse than some chicken rice places in Raffles Place at lunchtime. Then my eyes followed the queue into the waiting area that snaked around the side of the restaurant and knew that I was going to be waiting for quite some time. A huge line of people triple-backed on itself in the waiting hold which was composed of mainly Filipinos, a handful of Singaporean families who were excited about joining such a long queue (“Look how many people are queuing! It must be good!”), and one very obvious white guy (myself). I joined the carnival-like atmosphere of the queue and settled myself in to a long wait. For everyone’s information, I joined the queue at 18.11 on a Thursday evening and ordered my food at 20.11 – EXACTLY two hours later. The shutters to join the queue were closed down at about seven o’clock, but I have heard rumours about people still queuing late into the night and forcing the store to stay open till 2am in the morning. The general consensus seems to be that the crazy queues are only going to die down after 3 – 6 months, and that Sunday (when Singapore’s large Filipino maid community enjoy their day-off) is a definite no-go.The Food Verdict?
Jollibee is actually a Filipino fast food that just came into the country in the last few years. The taste of the meal is quite interesting. They Have fried chicken, spaghetti and even a beef patty. All except the spaghetti is topped with the gravy of a mash potato. If u are someone who enjoys spicy food then you have to know that all their food is not spicy at all so just take chilli sauce and enjoy them with your fried chicken! Or maybe, just try and enjoy ur meal without chilli for once.

Jollibee always has a long queue, and that had always put me off eating there. But, when I was there at an off timing I decided to give it a go. The queue was not too bad, and the chicken did not dissapoint at all! Pretty good chicken, enchanced by the gravy. I have to admit though that it was not exactly very filling. If you were very hungry, you'd definitely not be satisfied with a meal here. Overall though, pretty good fried chicken. Check it out.
