From Ultimate Picks to Trending Must-Try, Here are the Winners of GrabFood Fan Faves 2023

MANILA, Philippines—In a recent announcement, Grab culminates Fan Faves 2023—the leading superapp’s flagship food and beverage recognition program—with the announcement of this year’s winners.

Spanning September to October 2023, Fan Faves amassed an astounding number of votes from the platform’s consumers, reaching into the millions across 19 food and beverage categories. 

Now in its third year, GrabFood Fan Faves 2023 celebrates the top picks of its highly active userbase by tallying total order as votes for each menu offering. This inclusive program extends its reach beyond Metro Manila as it also recognizes the merchant-partners from various regions across the country.

Under the national category, nine menu offerings qualified as Platinum Fan Faves after garnering more than 50,000 votes each – officially earning the title ‘The Country’s Ultimate Favorites’. Leading the way with an extraordinary record in three categories is none other than Jollibee, securing triumph in the Burger, Fried Chicken, and Pasta categories. Jollibee’s Yumburger, Chickenjoy, and Jolly Spaghetti each garnered hundreds of thousands of votes during the voting period, solidifying their status as beloved food icons. 

Other platinum winners are Mang Inasal’s Extra Creamy Halo-Halo (Cold Dessert) and Paa Large-PM1 (Grilled Chicken), Starbucks’ Caramel Macchiato (Coffee), McDonald’s McCrispy Chicken Fillet w/ Fries Medium Meal (Combo Meal), Angel’s Pizza’s Creamy Spinach Dip Double Deals (Pizza), and Chowking’s Siomai Chao Fan (Rice Meal).

Moreover, 39 food items have earned the title of “People-Approved Faves,” achieving Gold-Tier status based on a specific threshold of total votes. Finally, we have the Trending Faves, which – consisting of equally competitive menu offerings, have garnered a substantial number of votes, following in the footsteps of the Gold-Tier winners.

Lastly, legacy restaurants and culinary movers hailing from regions beyond Metro Manila also received well-deserved recognition through the Regional Faves program. This initiative brings the limelight to three restaurants in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
