(SPOT.ph) The taste of Hawaii isn’t in pineapples or coconut or SPAM. Or, rather, not simply in those things. If we could have a taste of the Aloha State, it would be Ted Tsakiris and Rich Stula’s big juicy burgers that manage to convey everything good about Hawaii in a few big bites. Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, which has been topping burger lists in the U.S. since 2001, opened last year in Greenbelt, and now it’s showing Mandaluyong the way of Hawaiian-style chow with its new branch in Shangri-La Plaza.
Have the classic Teddy's Original Burger which starts at P248
The menu is a mouthwatering list that marries together breakfast favorites (pancakes and bacon-egg meals in varying forms) and classic comfort food (buffalo wings, extra thick milkshakes, fries, and sandwiches). But the proof is in their specialty-burgers: pure USDA ground-chuck patties, fresh potato buns, and their signature sauce. The Shang branch, in particular, has a new, specific three-burger-strong menu that will have even established Teddy’s fans intrigued.
The Elvis Burger
Elvis Presley had a love for a certain type of sandwich-a hollowed-out loaf full of a peanut-butter, banana, and bacon-which is reincarnated by Teddy’s into the Elvis Burger (starts at P297). The peanut-butter they used to glaze on the patty features a semi-saline kick beneath the initial sweetness, while crispy bacon and slices of banana plant themselves over the usual bacon fixings. This popular combination is a hit for both children and adults who love to reminisce about the flavors of their childhood. The union of the burger's key ingredients-all its sweet, meaty, crunchy, salty, chewy, uncanny goodness-is a delightful surprise.
The Bandito Burger
The adventurous palate would find the Bandito Burger (starts at P287) an instant favorite. The dripping cheese makes for a lustful sight, and an even more indulgent flavor. It’s packed with a generous amount of jalapeños which gives off an unmistakably feisty heat.
The Samurai Burger
A Japanese burger, you say? The Samurai Burger (P337) combines all those delectable Japanese flavors-well, as much of it as they can-in a bun. The strong zest of wasabi mayonnaise complements the teriyaki sauce's syrupy sweetness nicely. The elements make a good relationship, with sharp contrasts that somehow manage to balance each other out. The sweet potato and nori strips are crisped just right, adding texture to the burger.
This burger trio is exclusive only to the Teddy’s Shangri-La, which is the 20th branch worldwide. In 2015, seven more stores are set to open in the Philippines, with new items exclusive to each branch.
