I was never someone who did reviews nor was I open with my opinions on food establishments I love or hate. But do excuse me this time if I rant about something I current love. Took me a while to ponder whether I want make a post about it but I feel I needed to share this.
Just a few months ago, Jollibee opened it's first outlet in Singapore. My kids were elated. Ok, I must admit their fried chicken (in my opinion)is one of the best here in Singapore ( love the gravy) but I won't be dwelling on that topic. I'm not writing this post because of their fried chicken. I'm here to talk about their Jolly Hotdog. People reading this post might raise their eyebrows when I say Jolly Hotdog. Frankly, I'm quite surprised as well. First and foremost, I'm not into hotdogs. Nor do I like ketchup, mayonnaise and most importantly, I hate mustard and yet I really liked the Jolly Hotdog I've tasted. Every ingredient in the dressing worked harmoniously well that I wasn't able to detect any sour taste of the ketchup nor the overpowering flavour of the mustard. I was truly impressed. It was creamy and it has just the right amount of cheese without it being heavy. I have to admit the hotdog itself is nothing special but the dressing is simply praise worthy. Sad to say though, that not all Jolly Hotdog are created equal. The once I've tasted and loved were the one's made by Mr. John. The rest, they were forgettable. Call me fussy or picky but I am only being honest when I say I only eat Jolly Hotdog made by Mr. John himself. I only want to spare myself from the disappointment. Queueing for hours is no easy task and wondering when will be my next opportunity is pure agony.
My love affair with Jolly HD has just started and I hope it will continue to flourish which would solely be dependent on the consistency and adherence to their right dressing formula.
I used to wonder what would drive this people to queue up for hours and more than willing to wait for another more hour just to be able to get their hands on the HD but after having tasted the one Mr. John made, now I can totally understand. Not that I'm saying I would go out of my way to queue for hours but I would definitely like to find other means to get my hand on the ever elusive HD made specially by Mr. John.
