Jollibee - Selling Fried Chicken Instead of Honey @ Changi City Point [Singapore[

Jollibee, a fast food chain from Philippines said to be more famous than McDonald's, had branched out to Singapore since 2013 but last weekend was the first time i stepped into its premise, welcomed by a life-sized bee mascot!

Having heard so much about Jollibee's fried chicken, known as Chickenjoy, i instantaneously ordered a 3-piece meal (original) as i was so deprived of oily, deep fried chicken for the past few weeks. p.s. there were indeed three pieces even though the box indicated two. 

Alex had requested for no wings and it was extremely kind of the service staff to give me two pieces of drumsticks instead! Now's the time to slowly savour the fried chicken! 

One bite and i knew for certain crispiness wasn't its strong point. There was a crisp to the skin but it just wasn't crunchy enough and it didn't help that the skin was also rather fatty. 

Key selling point was more the freshness of the chicken (no dark-stained bones too) even though i bet some of you would lament on the lack of spices / seasonings common in KFCs. I did notice the two small bowls on my serving tray and wonder why they were there as i have a dislike for whipped / mashed potatoes.

According to Alex, they were sauces for us to dip the chicken into. Thinking this would be the key determinant to dramatically improve the taste, i soaked the chicken meat immediately and took a bite. Honestly, i think the Thai chilli sauce from Kimball would do a better job.
