Fast food corporations have there finger in nearly every corner of the planet, it’s all big business each one trying to compete and undercut other rivals.
In the Philippines we seen this everywhere, there are plenty of local and international fast food companies trying to get a slice and there foot into Asia.
I was actually quite surprised, the main player is Jolibee Philippines own food king, there food it was great and diferent to what were use to back home with mcdonalds.
The restraunts are always packed out and can be found everywhere. I was actually quite surprised seeing KFC and Mcdonalds, all selling rice with there meals this was the only way of having people come as Filipinos main food staple is rice.
There were plenty of other places we tried, were food was ok to excellent, ill add a small list here on what fast food is available and review each one of what we thought. We will update as we continue.
Chowking prides itself with its concept of quick-serve Chinese dishes, making it the pioneer. Noodles, dumplings and rice toppings were the dominant best sellers. Review 6/10
McDonald’s come into the Philippines in 1981. It quickly became a huge success and McDonald’s branches began sprouting up all over the major cities in the Philippines. With its continued success came innovations and some new products were introduced that are more flavorful to suit the Filipino taste as consumers are not very familiar with bland food that needs additional condiments and spices as you eat. Review 5/10
A modern Filipino restaurant, offering local fares with a twist. A little slow on the service, but food is good. I like their Kare-kareng Gulay and the Crispy Pata. It is here that I first tasted and liked Crispy Kangkong. Review 9/10
Two sisters and a sister-in-law were the brains behind the very successful Goldilocks when they opened their first bakeshop in 1966 in Pasong Tamo, Makati City.
Greenwich is considered the largest pasta and pizza chain in the Philippines right now. It started as a pizza store selling pizza slices over the counter when it opened in 1971 at the Greenhills Shopping Center. They sell thin-crust pizza, a major improvement from the other pizzas that were being sold during that time that almost resemble flat round bread with toppings because of the too-thick crust. Jollibee Foods Corporation acquired and own Greenwich. Review 8/10
Kentucky Fried Chicken.
KFC’s main focus is chicken and added rice like Mcdonalds to win over Filipinos. Review 7/10
Shakey’s is another foreign brand that is enjoying huge success here in the Philippines since 1975. Pizza is the main product of Shakey’s and has several product innovations to keep their loyal customers satisfied.
Pizza Hut, another foreign franchise, has also gained foothold in Philippine soil attesting to the fact the Filipinos love to eat. It was brought here in 1984. Pizza Hut not only serves pizza. It also offers casual dining, serving a mix of American-Italian cuisine. Review 6/10
