When you're living in the Philippines, one has the tendency to take things for granted. But when you're already in another country, you'll realize that you miss a lot of things that's "Pinoy". A typical example is Jollibee. You see it everywhere in the Philippines but here in the U.S. you'll just see it in big cities. Thank goodness I live in the Bay area.

Hubby didn't know it was a Filipino owned franchise until I told him. He was amazed. sengihnampakgigi

This Jollibee is located in downtown San Francisco (200 4th St.). We went there last Friday for some "lasang Pinoy" food.

I know that all the food there is not super-fabulous but I don't care. Just give me pancit palabok and "chicken joy" and I'll be happy. Filipinos flock there because it's comfort food for us. There's also a Red Ribbon beside it and that's an added bonus.

I just love ordering food speaking in Tagalog.

Pancit palabok, fries and burger. It feels like I've visited the Philippines. Yey!
