Burger Project is a hole-in-the-wall place located in Teacher’s Village, Quezon City. It is reputed to have one of the best burgers in the Metro. One of the things that make them unique compared to the other burger places is their make-your-own burger.
The cashier immediately knew that we were first-timers the moment we stepped into the store and stared blankly at the blackboard containing their menu. She was helpful enough to explain that we can either order one of their six designer burgers or create our own burger.
We decided to order the Western Bacon Melt. The cashier recommended it and said that it was their best-seller. The burger was huge! (It was larger than Brother Burger’s designer burgers.) The 100% beef patty was topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes, onion rings and barbeque sauce. The burger patty was thick and juicy.
We were feeling adventurous so we decided to create our own burger. The process is simple. All you have to do is request for an order slip from the cashier and fill-up the form by choosing the toppings you want.
Your order can range from a plain burger in a bun combo to a burger with everything on it. (We entertained the idea of a burger with everything on it, but we decided not to go through with it because of the price and the odd combination of ingredients.
Our burger was 100% beef in seasame bun with the following toppings: mozarella cheese, caramelized onions, egg, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and wasabi mayonnaise. Obviously, the taste depends on the combination of ingredients; so make sure that you actually like the toppings!
We also ordered some fries and a tall glass of Vanilla Shake. The fries was seasoned with salt, pepper and a mild spicy powder.
The vanilla milkshake was smooth and creamy. The sweetness was just right.
Overall, the food was good and was worth every centavo spent. The staff were all nice and helpful. The only problem we encountered was the lack of parking space. Be prepared to park 1 block away from the establishment.
(From Malingap, turn left to Maginhawa street. The place is located 1.5 blocks away from the Bayantel building.)
Take a jeep to Philcoa. Go to the Ministop located at the corner of Masaya Street. There’s a line of red tricycles
