I’ve had the joy of eating at The Burger Project a few times already and I don’t think I’m ever going to get tired of stuffing my face here. I promised my cousins Christine and Angela I’d take them here, and since my brother Jeth is currently visiting us from Hawaii, I took it as the best chance to just take everyone there in one go.
Though the place is a bit small and parking is a bitch, we were lucky to get there while it was relatively empty. Pepito and I had to explain the ordering process: being given a checklist/order form and simply checking off what you wanted in your burger. At one point Angela sobbed and exclaimed “I CAN’T DO THIS, IT’S TOO OVERWHELMING.” I laughed. But I knew the feeling.

We also explained that there were template burgers that they could order but NOPE they were having none of that. Eventually we finally ordered and sat down to wait.
This milkshake is THE BEST. I saw the milkshake gods, when I drank it. And it’s only P150. I have dreams about this milkshake. /obsess
The chili cheese fries were pretty good, too, but merely served as a distraction from our burgers. Which, finally arrived.
Of course, my burger was the best. (Angus patty, sesame seed bun, lettuce, tomato, white onion, cheddar cheese, chili con carne, bacon.) We spent the next half hour or so applying these babies to our faces. Amazing.
In the end, all we were left with were mounds of used paper towels and the heavy feeling of satisfaction in our stomachs. The best part of it was that my brother paid for everything! Thanks bro, you’re such a bro. <3
This place is a definite must-try. For one, nothing beats the novelty of being able to ‘design your own burger’. Since you get to choose what goes into your burger, you also get to control how much you’re going to spend. The only thing difficult about eating here is table space and parking spaces. While there are tables outside, there are about only 5 tables inside. As for parking, there are only two slots outside the restaurant. If you’re planning on going, either come at an off-peak hour or get ready to hunt for a distant parking spot and wait for space.
