“Hello, welcome to Jollibee,” is what the cashier will probably say when you walk into Jollibee. And you’ll find those words comforting, at least after you eat some fried chicken here several times. This is a fast-food chain with a bee mascot in a blazer and a chef’s hat, and it has over 1,000 locations in the Philippines. They specialize in spaghetti with thick, sweet tomato sauce and fried chicken with big sides of gravy, and if you want to eat these things in NYC, there are only two locations to pick from: this one in Woodside and another Midtown. Stop by for a quick takeout meal, get your fried chicken spicy, and order a crispy, golden mango pie for dessert.
