My daughter celebrated her 19th monthly birthday yesterday. We were just at home the entire hot day watching Team Umizoomi and Ni-Hao Kai-lan when the home phone rang. It was my mom. She wanted us to eat out for dinner.
Nobody wanted rice for dinner so we just let my dad decide. He said he wanted burger for a change. Our first choice for a burger restaurant is Zark’s (for their Jawbreaker) in Taft Avenue but it was quite far from home so we dropped the idea. Next thing we know is we were already at The Burger Project in Maginhawa St. Teacher’s Village, just in time for dinner.
The Burger Project prides itself for the “make-your-own-burger” menu that they have. When you enter their restaurant in QC, this huge chalk board will greet you. You won’t get overwhelmed as long as you know what you want in your burger.
This is their “ingredients” bar. You’d see here most of the stuff that usually “composes” a burger–lettuce, mushroom, pickles, tomato, etc.
Now on to the sauces and cheeses. They have bleu, mozarella, Gruyere, Cheddar, etc.
So, how do you start “making your own burger”?
Firstly, get this order sheet from the restaurant attendant. I told you a while ago that as long as you know your burger, you won’t get lost with this sheet. There are 6 yummy steps in this choose-your-own-burger adventure.
- Choose your patty. They offer Angus, Beef, Chicken, Tofu, etc. You can stack your patty as high as you can, of course you have to pay for every patty that you order. Patties start at Php75.00 each.
- Choose a bun. The sesame bun is for free, obviously, that’s what I got. :p
- Choose a cheese – I got cheese sauce this time. 🙂 (I thnk I am imagining a baconator while making my burger.)
- Choose you premium toppings – BACON! BACON! BACON!
- Choose your basic toppings – I got sliced white onions for a change. :p
- Choose a sauce – I did not check this. Hehe :0
- Name your burger! (This is just me!) I named my burger Noa’s 19th Baconator! HAHA!
This is my clean sheet. I have to tell you that when I finished signing this up, sobrang dami ng erasures (talk about knowing your burger?!)!! Just like the elementary days when you were checking your classmates’s test paper, as you put √ instead of an X. Who can relate? :p
And my daughter “pretends” to be reading the menu. Nagmamarunong ang peg! 🙂 But I ordered a Chocolate Shake for her.
Our fries and buffalo wings were the first ones to arrive. We put-all-you-can mayo, mustard and tomato ketchup for the fries’ dip while waiting for our burgers.
And then, Noa’s 19th Baconator Wanna-Be arrived! Wee! I’m happy! Beef patty, bacon, cheese sauce, lettuce, tomato with a little bit of mayo, mustard and tomato ketchup.
My poor daughter did not enjoy the burgers much. Her attention was on the fries so we ordered the Good ‘Ol Choc’lit Shake for her. When her shake arrived, she “scrutinized” it a bit and next thing I know is she’s drinking it non-stop!
So her day ended up with a big smile and a messy sailor dress on our way home.
Happy 19th, Kulit!! 🙂
If you’re looking for some food adventure and a break in your typical burger experience, The Burger Project is the right place for you. I really felt satisfied after I finished eating Noa’s 19th Baconator Wanna-Be.
Moreover, I like the fries, really crispy and not dry on the inside. Noa’s Good ‘Ol Choc’lit is also a winner. I just find the beef patty I got a little too bland in terms of its taste. The buffalo wings were a little sour for my taste. I usually go for sweet and spicy wings.
You can go and visit their shops for your own satisfaction. 🙂
