I call this post –the Burger Battle Royale. I love eating burger in different resto and fast food, I also tried the burgers in hotels with expensive price. I also heard about the biggest burger in town, but I’m not convinced to try it because they just sell the size and not the flavor, there’s nothing special about those giant burgers, But in the future, I’ll give it a shot and try if it is indeed yummy. Burgers are introduced here when Americans invaded the Philippines during the WWII and the absorption of the style and American culture became a common and regular food meal in almost all local and international fast food and resto.
Its just a bun with fried patty meat with pickles,
onions, lettuce, mayonnaise and catsup, it’s a regular style and taste the same
in the past, but I still miss those old burgers sold in mini fast food joint
like Burger Machine, Pac-man, Tropical Hut Hamburger, Scott’s burger and also I
miss that P10 burger sold in our canteen in UST when I was in elementary.
I remember when I was with my Grandma Epang and mom during the 80’s and
we dined in to this mall in Makati, from the basement of the mall, they have
this mini restaurant in “sosyal” theme, the serving and style is like in a
hotel, I forgot the name of the mini resto but it’s not fast food joint, the
mall is still there but the mini resto is already gone.
My mission on
that year is to eat the biggest burger in town! My Grandma Epang is happy to
see me craving for the biggest burger, then she shared to me that the burgers in
the USA (she lives there) is so big!!, I started to imagine how big it is, but
then I look on the other side that the burger in the US is much bigger than the
Jollibee Yum that I know from their Carriedo branch. We ordered some food and
then I ordered a burger, it was weird that their burger is served in a plate
with lots of French fries, the fries are big and it places Jollibee and Mcdo’s
fries to shame and also the burger is big!!, it was my first time to eat a
burger using a fork and knife, my Grandma taught me on how to eat it, because I
complained that its too big and I don’t know how to eat it. I discovered from
there that the burgers comes in different sizes and has different way to eat
Transport back to our town in Sampaloc, Manila, there I discovered
the yummy burgers of Burger Machine, the only burger stand we know that exist
during the 80’s in the corner of Dimasalang St. and Laon Laan st. in Sampaloc,
Manila. People line up there just to buy a burger, there’s also an opening promo
that they gave out coupons and get a discounted burger price. It was chaos for
me and I felt that I was ignored by the staff of Burger Machine and then I
didn’t know that they are taking too many orders and my order is after 40plus
orders more. I stopped ordering and went home, I told my mom and dad that I want
a burger, there we went to Jollibee Carriedo after attending a mass in Quiapo
Burgers are already a part of my life, and they are evolving,
from yummiest form up to the weirdest form. I still hunt for the yummiest burger
in town, the most affordable and the rarest burger of all. Also joining Burger
eating contest is fun!!! but deadly hahahaha
Here I start my Burger
Battle Royale and this will be a new blog series. enjoy!
Chili’s Big Mouth Burger - Gourmet Burger
peppercorn crusted creation with fried pickets, gouda cheese and Dijon aioli.
This is my favorite in the line and I love the gouda cheese on it
Ultimate Mushroom Burger
With mushroom sauce, swiss cheese
and crispy onion strings, the winner in all sizes and heavy fillings, with the
title as the ultimate, we should respect this due to its size
Smoke Meatloaf Burger
The title says it all, the
meatloaf is like an embutido,but a lot more tastier. The burger is laoded with
shredded letture, tomato, pickles and onion strings.
obviously, I just lifted
this post from my old
Chili’s Big Mouth Burger is a big eye popping and mouth
watering delight, the bigger, the better theme will satisfy you. I encountered
this way back 2010, and I’m not sure if Chili’s still offer this. Hmmm I think I
need to visit Chili’s again.
Its my all time favorite burger for a fast food joint, I complained
years ago that their Champ is getting smaller, you can tell the difference if
you order this regularly, but when the burger battle started last 2011, I
noticed that Jollibee is honest that they make The Champ bigger again. I enjoyed
eating this and its my messy nature to eat as all the catsup and burger juice
flows from behind the burger.
Cheese on Top burger
I like to give KFC an award for innovating an original
style for their chicken burgers, 1st was the Double Down and the Tower
Burger, now they have this kind of burger with cheese on top and they placed the
cheese on top of the burger and instead of inside the burger. They re-cooked the
burger again in an oven just to melt the cheese. It was a disappointing look
when you saw the actual burger, and when you compare it to the poster ad they
have, the cheese on top burger on the ad is much yummier. But then, I found the
KFC Cheese on top burger delicious!! thanks to the cheese that melted on top of
KFC Tower Burger
watch my video that I ate this in 2
minutes - http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com/2011/08/az-video-blog-2011-demolish-tower.html
Big N’ Tasty burger
It’s a late offering to us to have this Big N’ Tasty
burger, its one of the most popular burger in McDonald’s, I still prefer the Big
Mac, Double Cheeseburger and the Quarter Pounder burger, I don’t know why… maybe
because the 100% pure beef didn’t sink in too deep to my taste buds and prefer
the regular burgers. They say its big, but there are some parts that are tasty.
It is still small for me, but not messy to eat it. I still enjoy the Big Mac
with lots of lettuce, tomato, pickles and cheese, but here for the Big N’ Tasty,
I can eat it in 5 bites only.
Tokyo Baa-gaa - Godzilla burger
Tokyo Tokyo launched the very first burger
line of this Japanese fast food. I tasted their 5 kinds of burgers, the 1st
three burgers are available in the market, but the other two are not yet
available, I think they just did a taste test to us that time during the launch
of Tokyo Tokyo Baa-gaa burger line. I believe that the last two burgers will be
a hit, just watch out for it. As for this Godzilal Burger, its my new favorite
burger of the generation, its 100% pure beef, with lots of cheese and check out
the thickness of the burger patty..its really a Godzilla burger!, its tall and
it can match the size of that small catsup in tetra pack. Did you know that I
ate this after I got disappointed when I ordered Mcdo’s Big N’ Tasty. It’s the
yummiest burger for me, but I just wish that Tokyo Tokyo will also offer catsup
for their burgers, I just don’t like teriyaki sauce being poured on my burger,
its messy and makes the burger salty.
2nd order of Godzilla burger after two weeks
Tokyo Tokyo - Shitake Burger
Shitake burger is
one of the 1st burger line that comes along with Shogun burger and Godzilla
burger. I like the taste of this burger with shitake mushroom on top of the
burger beef patty, I think I need to eat this again because I forgot the taste
Better Burger – Double Dare with Cheese
I read online about this new burger
joint in SM North EDSA Annex, I visited it after a month and then I ordered the
biggest and most expensive burger from their menu. The Double Dare with Cheese.
I didn’t expected that it is big and heavy! Its like meeting a saint and you go
out with them and play golf or bowling for the entire day. I thought that I
can’t finish this, but I’m glad my iPhone 4S keep me company and as I update my
Twitter and Instagram, then check my emails…and do lots of mobile internet jobs,
I noticed that I finished this burger around 20-25 minutes. Its heavy because of
the thick double dare patty and I love the melting cheese, I think next time
I’ll try to have an additional cheese to this burger.
my version of Darth Vader Burger
The concept came from Quick
fast food in France, in line with the promotion of Stars Wars movies back to
the big screen in 3D format. Here in Manila, I re-heated my Johnny Rockets
burger in the oven and it turns black.
Son of a Baconator
I thought that the Son of a Baconator will be bigger than
the regular Baconator, but then it was like a medium version of the Father
Baconator. I’m not sure why they call it the “Son” and the Baconator maybe the
father of it. I heard that there’s a mother and I can’t spill the details here
because it will come out really soon in Wendy’s. Kudos to Wendy’s for battling
head to head with other burger joints.
It’s a 100% pure beefy burger double patty top with lots of
cheese and some bacons. The Baconator reigned the burger throne during its 1st
launch, and it dethrones all fast food who serves The Baconator. It’s a dare
burger, because you might have an heart attack when you eat this. Its one of the
best burger that was ever made. Big….and crazy! I still love this,but its so
pricey for me. But what the hell… I always enjoy this when I ate it.. omg.. I’m
going to buy one now.
So that’s the end of our Burger Battle Royale party
1, expect more burger battles here in my blog. I like a head to head battle
between the Godzilla burger vs. The Baconator and see who will win. But for me,
the Double Dare Burger, Godzilla burger and Baconator burger stands
Watch out as we will try new burger concept and new burger
then..I’ll be waiting for this…..
