The menu at the Jollibee in Anaheim, OC's unofficial Little Manila, is a hyper-realized collection of our own fast-food diet recited in a Tagalog-accented feedback loop. Burgers in sesame-seed buns are slathered with too much special sauce. Fried chicken can be bought by the bucket. And for dessert, there are old school deep-fried pocket pies that even McDonald's jettisoned decades ago. If you order the Fiesta Noodles (otherwise known as pancit palabok), sprinkle on a few packets of lemon juice, then mix it into a homogeneous mass. It will look like pad Thai, but taste nothing like it--palabok is porkier by tenfold, but just as delicious. On that note, Jollibee's spaghetti isn't going to taste like the corner trattoria's either. This is pasta and marinara for the sweet-toothed--a Willy Wonka merging of dinner and dessert with cut-up hot dogs, a melted layer of grated taco cheese, and a sugary tomato sauce that could prove lethal to diabetics.
