Top 10 Gourmet Beef Burgers in Manila
More than just having premium patties, these buzzed-about burgers up the ante with bone marrow, foie gras, truffles.
(SPOT.ph) Back in the day, only burger joints served burgers, and they did so with less pageantry. Burgers were usually served on a plain bun, with a squirt of catsup (and mustard if you’re feeling fancy), some greens and a few slices of pickles. These days, both casual restaurants and fine-dining spots have upped the ante by using premium cuts of meat like Black Angus and wagyu, and adding some prime, out-of-the-ordinary toppings such as Portabello mushrooms, foie gras, and truffles.
For this list, SPOT.ph scoured the city for the most buzzed-about beef burgers in town. We’ve baptized the burgers on this list as "gourmet," and in this case, we've taken gourmet to mean burgers that use only the best grade-A ingredients, plus an extra special topping or two that make the experience worth your every hard-earned peso.
