Let me introduce you to..“Bypass Burger”

“Unclutter the Burger” as The Beef PH put it. According to them, you don’t have to add any crap to your burger to make it the best tasting burger because “THE BEEF” is all that matters. Which is damn straight TRUE!

In my previous post, I talked about my Top 5 bang for you buck burger joints in Metro Manila. This time, I’m going to share with you my Top 5 “No, Go!” burger joints in Metro Manila. Why “No Go” because of their ridiculously priced burger that tastes like your normal Mcdonald’s burger! Which leads us to number 5 on the list!
Caliburger is a California-Style burger franchise which was allegedly accused of copying In-N-Out signature burgers. They just recently opened branches here in the Philippines and I know you’ve seen them already. But if I were you, DO NOT bother to go to this place anymore. Their Burgers are ridiculously priced and tastes like your normal Mcdonald’s Quarter Pounder.
Here’s their menu to compare:
You can get 2 Quarter Pounder meal in Mcdonald’s with that price! and yes, I said meal! Php 295 CaliDouble is not yet a meal. It’s just the price of a burger.
Next on the list is another overly priced fast food burger joint from Canada. Continue reading

With the rising customize or make your own burger joints in Metro Manila, this Joint made a huge difference in the industry. Before you can only customize the toppings of your burger, more cheese! more bacon! Triple Patty! whatever happens is that you’d always end up making a burger making you fatter and the worst part is, the patty tastes like crap which makes the entire burger sucks.
The Burger Patty is the heart and soul of the burger, you won’t be able to get the best burger if you don’t know how to get your patty right! Continue reading
Not sure if you’ve heard of BIG B Burgers but if you go to Maginhawa St. a lot then you’ve probably seen this joint.

I’m a big fan of SPAM simply because it’s best paired with anything! especially BURGERS! Continue reading
