My brother and I were supposed to eat at Green Wok Deli & Cafe in Matalino St. We changed our minds and decided to go to BRGR: Burger Project instead. Apparently, I am discovering all these restaurants really late because I never tried exploring Maginhawa St. till recently. Burger Project opened last August 2010, by the way. Their main attraction is that you can, as the owners say, “Build your own burger!”

Shot of the interiors first. Hmmm… Next time our foodtrips should be in the morning so the lighting is better.
After looking at the blackboard for guidance, we placed our orders. Below is Chito’s order form
OH THE ANTICIPATION.
And now for the moment of truth! At this point we were practically salivating.
Chito customized his burger. His order had Gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and wasabi sauce on an oatmeal vegan bun.
I decided to try out their designer burger recipes. So got a Bleu Buffalo which consisted of bleu cheese, buffalo wing sauce, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.
We also had two tofu patties in each of our burgers. 2 BIG, JUICY PATTIES. Again, whenever Chito and I eat out, the “theme” is always vegetarian. (My brother isn’t a vegetarian but is open to trying out new types of food.) And hey, we were hungry.
We topped of our dinner with sweet potato fries.
I really don’t remember how much our individual orders cost. We spent Php 500 on our burgers alone. One tofu patty cost Php 75 (times 2 per burger), and Php 15 (times 2) for oatmeal vegan patties. The fries cost Php 60.
I forgot to add that they have chicken, regular beef and Angus Beef patties. :)
If you want to check out the restaurant which I highly recommend for their hefty servings… A word of caution, don’t get too carried away with the choosing the toppings. Chito and I were slightly shocked at our total bill.
