So when I get to the Jollibee branch at The Fort, we were directed to the Jollibee Room where a table for me and another blogger (Ferdz Decena of ironwulf.net) was waiting:
It was so cool, it even had our names on it and it was all gussied up and personalized!
Notice how even the coaster has the letter “C” on it and Ferdz’ had the letter “F” on it. Wala lang, it was a nice touch, small details that gave me the impression that it was really prepared just for us. It was the boys’ turn first. Later that day, was the girls’ turn – Saab Magalona, Chuvaness and Jenni Epperson. This was the menu:
They also served us Jollibee’s new University Floats (they let us taste all 4 new flavors):
Then of course the time came to reveal what the mystery is all about, as the star of the event was brought in with the rightful pomp and pageantry. Up to the very last minute, it was shrouded for a more dramatic reveal:
Finally, I lifted the cover and it was — the new Jollibee Hash Brown Burger!
I’ve seen the box, now it was time to let my taste buds get acquainted with this new dish. Basically, it’s a burger that has, instead of bread, hash browns!
So it’s the same Jollibee burger patty sandwiched between 2 crispy baked hash browns. That for me spells the difference, the word: BAKED. So it’s not as greasy as you’d expect from hash browns, given that it’s baked instead of deep fried. So I was right, based on the gifts, it did involved potatoes (the 2 hash browns), beef (the beef patty) and cheese (the slice of cheese). That was a fun romp! Thanks to Jollibee for that little puzzle-mystery trip they took us on, till the next adventure!
