Jollibee's Nasi Lemak Chickenjoy Taste Test: Nice Or Not?
Lemak or lacklustre?
Remember the hype when Jollibee first landed in Singapore back in 2013? Today, the popular Filipino fried chicken fast food chain still draws lines on weekends (especially at their Lucky Plaza flagship), and loyal fans claim it is the best fast food chook on the island.
On October 1st, Jollibee launched its new $5 Nasi Lemak Chickenjoy — a fusion of their famous Chickenjoy (what they call their signature battered bird) and our local comfort rice dish. Available with either the Original and Spicy fried chicken, the Nasi Lemak Chickenjoy is now available at all 10 outlets for a limited period, as well as via Grabfood, Deliveroo and FoodPanda. We tapow-ed two boxes from the Suntec City Jollibee outlet to see if this hybrid falls flat, or turns out to be the best of both worlds.
