I’ve been working on a Battle Burger project with the Juice.PH team for the past few weeks. We tasted and rated all the best burgers you can think of in Manila, and we are about to release the Battle Burger results in Juice.PH.

As we’re about to close our quest for the Best Burger in Manila, we came across an interesting burger joint along the foodie street of Maginhawa — BRGR: The Burger Project! There, you can customize your burger based on your preference…

You can choose the type of buns, burger, cheese, fresh toppings and  sauces you’d like to use for your burger. It is a combination of Ristras’ concept of displaying the fresh ingredients coupled with the Fro-yo places’ concept of being able to choose your own toppings but, this time, applied to burgers.

It is self-service so you have to order and pay at the counter, and then you have to get the food when your name is called.

To customize your burger, pick up an order form and:
1.  Choose your burger:
100% Beef (P95/each), Tofu (P75/each), or Chicken (P95/each)
You can choose up to 3 pieces of patty.
2.  Choose a bun:
Poppyseed (FREE with Burger), Potato Bun (P15) or Oatmeal Bun (P15) for vegetarians
3.  Choose your Cheese: (add P35 each)
Bleu, Mozzarella, Gruyere, Cheddar

4. Choose your Premium Toppings (add P25 each):
Bacon, Chili con carne, Caramelized Onions, Canadian Bacon, Pepperoni, Onion Rings, Guacamole (seasonal)

5. Choose your Basic Toppings
(add P20 each)
Mango Salsa, Pineapple Slices, Jalapeno Peppers, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Egg, Sliced Onions, Sauteed Mixed Mushrooms

Lettuce, Tomatoes, and Pickles come FREE with the burger.

BRGR- The Burger Project!-20

6. Choose your Sauce: (add P15 each):
Wasabi Mayonnaise, BBQ Sauce, Teriyaki Sauce, Marinara, Pesto, Buffalo Wings Sauce, Special BRGR Sauce, and Garlic Sauce

I actually like the cozy college tambayan vibe of the place, where you can play cards and hang out with your friends over burgers.

If you don’t want to customize your burger, BRGR offers cleverly created designer burgers, too (they seem to be designed to increase the cost of the burger). We ordered two of the designer burgers below:

Western Bacon Melt

100% Beef Burger Patty – P95
Poppyseed Bun – FREE with Burger
Cheddar Cheese – P35
Premium Topping: Bacon – P25
Premium Topping: Onion Rings – P35
Basic Topping: Sauteed Mixed Mushrooms – P20
Tomatoes – FREE with burger
BBQ Sauce – P15

I like it. The patty is huge, very soft, and has a home-cooked feel to it. The buns are very soft as well, like monay. It is actually good for two (as long as you both aren’t extremely hungry). The only thing is that there is a sharp, salty taste that we suspect is due to the bacon, which ruins the burger experience.

The Sloppiest Joe

100% Beef Burger Patty – P95
Poppyseed Bun – FREE with Burger
Cheddar Cheese – P35
Premium Topping: Chili Con Carne – P25
Premium Topping: Canadian Bacon – P25
Premium Topping: Caramelized Onions – P35
Tomatoes – FREE with burger

This is the sloppiest-tasting burger ever, bordering on yucky territory already. We don’t recommend it.

You can also order very fat mozzarella sticks for the kids. πŸ™‚
