GRANNY'S BURGER... VERY BIG AND VERY TASTY


      I've noticed that my past few posts have been of bigger brand named restaurants, and that I've seemed to have gone astray from my original mission of helping out small, fledging businesses. There are literally hundreds of hole in the wall restaurants in the metro just waiting to be discovered, and I happened to chance upon one that- with its 1/3 Pound Australian beef patty burgers and other classic menu items, immediately caught my attention:

     The name said it all: Granny's Burgers.. Big and Tasty! 




               Granny's Burgers is a small nook Located on the ground floor of LPI building along Capt. Henry Javier street in Pasig (The road going to the motels.. umm.... So I heard there are motels there.. Not that I would know.. I mean.. err... What are "Motels", anyway?). It's really just a small corner of space that offers about four tables inside, and a few more at the al fresco area outside. 

THE FOOD

STARTERS


           Forgive me for a second, but I need you to allow me to show my age for a second - Do you remember the brand "Presto Ice Cream"? No doubt, their most popular item in the market was the "Tivoli" an ice cream bar way ahead of its time. All the hype went to the Tivoli, but something that seemed to be overlooked by consumers, was Presto's Chocolate ice Cream, which to me, still ranks as one of- if not THE best chocolate ice cream I've ever tasted. 

       Memories of that smooth creaminess came flooding through my mind as I took my first sip of Granny's Chocolate Milkshake (P119). It was simple yet delicious. Rina ordered the Cookies and Cream, which was also really good. In fact, I couldn't decide which one I enjoyed more..



So there was only one way to settle this once and for all. 

(Needless to say, it still ended in a tie)


                Rina and I shared a little basket of Potato Wedges (P59). I don't usually like Potato Wedges, as I prefer thin cut fries, but I made an exception to this because it was still crispy, despite it being a thicker cut. It had great flavor on the light coating, and an awesome partner for your burger.  


             Although we asked for the Allas de Pollo aka BUffalo Wings (P190 Half Order/P350 Whole Order) to have only mild spiciness, the heat on it still packed a punch. I'm not too big on Buffalo wings, because of the flavor of Cider Vinegar, however Rina enjoys it, and liked this one in particular. It came with a duo of Blue Cheese Dip, and Honey Mustard. 

THE BURGERS


            As soon as I saw the Mamu Burger (P189 Single Patty, P299 Double Patty) on the menu, I knew Rina would want to order it. Not that I blame her. If you tell me you can resist ordering a 1/3 Australian Burger Patty stuffed with mozzarella cheese, than you're a stronger man than I. 
    

        You take a bite out of this juicy burger, and you get a burst of mozzarella oozing inside of your mouth. The meatiness of the patty mixed with the cheese perfectly. 



                 As good as the Mamu Burger was, I was there for one reason- The Triple Decker Starving (P347). The three layer burger was filled with a pound of beef, slices of bacon, cheese, two fried eggs, and a smearing of sweet and tangy BBQ Sauce . 



        I think my love for burgers has been apparent in the existence of my blog. I'm constantly on the lookout for the next big burger joint that I can add to my list of favorites. I think I may have found yet another one!

  1. Dude, the way you described it brought back memories of my long beloved Boulevard Diner. Oh how I wish they were still around :(

    But this is waaaayyy easier to got to :-D ! They probably got a target market out of motel goers. Not that I know why people may come out hungry from there :-P

    2. Ate here yesterday, and you're right - the food was delicious! The potato wedges are particularly outstanding. The burger is juicy and flavorful (and inexpensive! hehehe) and can definitely compete with the best out there.
