Jollibee’s Pancake Sandwich has got to be the most unappetizing thing I’ve seen in a fast food restaurant in quite a while. I fully expected to bite into it and get a heart attack because of all that grease (look at the photo, you can actually SEE the grease).
Anyway, it was 4AM after a night of beer pong and everybody just wanted something deliciously greasy – besides, Jollibee is ALWAYS a good option for drunk food. Seeing that they had something different on the menu, I just had to try it. It was probably the best and worst decision I made that night. Best because how can you go wrong with pancakes, bacon, egg, cheese and maple syrup? Worst because it’s pancakes, bacon, egg, cheese and maple syrup all in one bite.
The egg is cooked in that weird way where the texture tells you it’s probably boiled but it’s also flat so you know it’s probably not boiled – it’s the worst way to cook an egg, in my opinion. The bacon was cooked just right but it wouldn’t hurt if they made it just a little bit crispy for an added crunch in every bite you take. The way it was cooked worked to their advantage though because the pancake was able to soak up all that delicious bacon grease! The pancakes were a little bit sweet for my taste but worked surprisingly well with the rest of the sandwich because it had the salty taste of the cheese and bacon to balance it out.
Overall, this new item on the menu isn’t a horrible idea, it’s actually a pretty brilliant one if you’re one of those people that aren’t so conscious about what they eat (or if you’re drunk). It may leave you feeling guilty enough to work out once or twice but not guilty enough to sign up for a gym membership! For P50, it’s worth a try.
Just once though.
