If we learned anything in high school, it's that it's good to be popular. Oh, and, like, math and stuff. ANYway, these eight international restaurant chains take the whole being popular thing to the next next level -- they were sooooo well liked in their respective home countries, they expanded all the way to LA.
What you're getting: Fiesta noodles and halo-halo
In the Philippines, this chain's nearly as ubiquitous as McDonald's, but in LA it's pretty much known for the ridiculousness that is the sign promising "crispy chickenjoy" and "juicy yumburger" -- and inside, you will find both of these things, plus a slew of oddball rice and noodle dishes and extremely colorful, chunky, dessert-like drinks. In other words, it's as strange -- and worth visiting -- as the outside would suggest.
