I Tried The New Jolly Hotdog And Burger Steak And I'm So, So Sad

All in a day's work.

Posted on

Jollibee is, no doubt, one of Filipinos' favorite fast food restaurants. And why not? They're responsible for pieces of heaven like Chicken Joy, Jolly Spaghetti, Burger Steak, and Jolly Hotdog.

So when they recently came up with new versions* of the Burger Steak and Jolly Hotdog, I was like, "SWEET. MOTHER. OF. GOD. I gotta try that."

My thoughts? Well, let's start with the BBQ Burger Steak.

When I first opened the packaging, I was like, "Da fuq are these sad ass lookin' patties and bits of corn???"

But then I remembered I ordered it to go and the sauce was on a different container, so I poured it in.

And everything was right in the world again. Sorry I ever doubted you, Jollibee.

The sauce is more on the spicy side than sweet, and that kinda threw me off at first. Maybe because I wasn't expecting it to have *that* amount of spiciness. If you're the kind of person who'd eat spicy BBQ sauce right out of the bottle, then you'd like this, but I'm the type of person who eats gravy like soup.So to me, I thought it was *gasp* nothing compared to the original Mushroom Gravy Burger Steak, which I was thinking about THE WHOLE TIME I was eating this lmao. I'm sorry, BBQ. I thought it was okay, though, but there isn't really anything special about it.Will I eat this again? Sure, but I'd still choose my original bH3bh3 q AKA Mushroom Gravy any day.

Now for the Chili Cheese Jolly Hotdog. I had such high hopes for this because 1) the older version of Jolly Hotdog is MAH SHIT, and 2) it looks appetizing as fuck.

But boy, was I disappointed.

Okay, first of all, it tasted more like tacos/nachos than Jolly Hotdogs. Where the hell is the Jolly Hotdog taste? I CAN'T FIND IT!!! I'm okay with tacos, but if I wanted one, then I'd get one at a freaking Taco Bell.Now, I know some people who like it, and I wanted to, but I wanted a fucking Jolly Hotdog with some meaty and cheesy topping and it didn't deliver. Me no likey. :( #NeverAgainMy two cents? STOP 👏 TRYING 👏 TO 👏 IMPROVE 👏 THINGS 👏 THAT 👏 ARE 👏 ALREADY 👏 PERFECT 👏.
