So for the past few weeks, I’ve been getting some serious burger cravings. And I don’t mean those ones that you buy from fast food restaurants, or the ones from food carts. I’m talking about those burgers with thick patties, yummy toppings, and giant sesame seed buns, paired with a plate of thick seasoned wedge fries and a milkshake. Well, today I got lucky… We ended up eating here at The BRGR Project, since the restaurant that we were supposed to visit in Makati was too far away.
What’s great about The BRGR project is that you can customize your own burger to your liking. You can choose from a whole variety of different types of cheese, sauces, toppings, and even the buns—You just need to fill up a form. You can even name your burger too! In fact, a lot of famous celebrities have created their own burgers here, and as far as I know, most of them have ended up being on the menu.
So yes, we did exactly that—We filled up our forms, and handed them over to the server. Our orders came really quickly. Probably because there weren’t any customers around… It was late in the afternoon.
Here’s my burger consisting of a thick and savory 100% beef patty, not-so-caramelized onions, bacon, a scrambled egg, ooey gooey mozzarella cheese, and wasabi mayo, sandwiched in a brioche bun. Just staring at it made my mouth water. And after taking the first bite, I felt like I was floating on cloud 9. One of the best burgers I’ve had (so far). Probably because of the fact that these were all my favorite toppings, and I didn’t have to pick out the ones that I didn’t like, such as lettuce or tomatoes.
Mom’s burger had a chori(zo) patty, garlic cream cheese, caramelized onions, a scrambled egg, and their special BRGR sauce in a sesame seed bun…
… While dad’s burger had a 100% beef patty, sliced white onions, caramelized onions, tomatoes, special BRGR sauce, and bleu cheese, also in a sesame seed bun.
Truffle Fries. These were yummy too! The mayo dip balanced out the saltiness of the thick-cut fries.
… And for some sweetness, I had a Choco Peanut milkshake. Hoho.
I think there should be more places where we can customize our own burgers. It lets everyone explore their creative side, plus diners can create new, unique and exciting flavors too because of these burger combos. The BRGR Project is a must-try for creative foodies out there!
