Today, November 25, the largest branch of Popeye’s in Southeast Asia will be opening right here in the Philippines.
The fried chicken chain, which started in Louisiana, United States 47 years ago, will be opening the doors to their biggest branch in the region at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) in Pasay at 1 PM Philippine Standard Time (PST). The new branch is located on the first floor of the South Entertainment Mall.
Many are excited about the opening of Popeye’s in SM MOA as they are looking forward to eating the world-famous fried chicken and delicious cookie treats. But did you know that Popeye’s Philippines has some items on their menu that were either launched here in 2019 or are Philippines-only exclusives?

That’s right. Just like other food chains that were brought to Manila, Popeye’s also has some exclusive meals that are made just for Filipino customers!
Popeye’s Exclusive: Filipino-Style Spaghetti
We Filipinos love the sweet, cheesy taste of Filipino-style spaghetti—made with sweet spaghetti sauce or banana ketchup, and with lots and lots of cheese. And Popeye’s also has their own version of the Filipino-style spaghetti, specially made for Filipino fans. It pays tribute to the childhood staple we’ve all grown to love and crave.
Popeye’s Exclusive: Hazelnut Biscuit
Popeye’s is also known for its biscuits which can be purchased together with their meals or on its own. And for the Philippines, the popular fast-food chain launched two new flavors—one of which is the hazelnut flavor. The semi-salty taste of the biscuit and the chocolatey goodness of the hazelnut chocolate is just the perfect combination! (Read: 5 Saints to Pray to if You Are a Certified Food Lover)
Popeye’s Exclusive: White Chocolate Biscuit
This is the second of the two exclusive biscuit flavors that Popeye’s launched for Manila. The white chocolate was sweet enough to make the chocoholics like it, but not too sweet that you’d get umay from it. It’s a great snack or side dish, nonetheless!
