It's a long weekend, what do you do? Well, go on a food trip! Allow FHM to entice you with our burger special. Here, we chop it down geographically so that you can use this as a map as you eat your way around Metro Manila.
[firstpara]MAKATI/BONIFACIO GLOBAL CITY/PASAY
108 H. V. Dela Costa St., Salcedo Village, Makati
Why you should visit: “Wagyu beef is genetically predisposed for intense marbling, meaning there’s more fat around the meat,” says Malcom’s chef Lawrence Briones. Such a mouthwatering declaration should be enough reason to brave Makati traffic for a visit. Know also that at first bite, as with all “cooked the right way” Wagyu beef, the patty melts in your mouth.
What to order: Wagyu Burger (P400, 170 grams)
Pair it with: Malcolm’s has a wide array of red wines. Or, if you’re really that hungry, you can try their other specialty: the Wagyu steak.
Contact them: (632) 844-0000
A. Venue Mall, B. Valdez St., Corner Makati Ave., Makati
Why you should visit: Earned significant buzz and media mileage from an interactive gimmick: Finish a burger in five minutes and it stays in your tummy for free! Only that burger is the premiere one-pound, all-beef triple patty they call “the Ridiculous Burger.” Rhian Ramos is one of only a handful of girlies to complete the challenge and not shell out P255. Eating that sandwiched cow in an industrial-themed, diner-type setting says they mean business. A new branch with a bigger menu is set to rise in Bonifacio Global City by September.
What to order: Crispy Bacon Melt (P165, 113 grams), Cheese Steak (P175, 113 grams), Ridiculous Burger (P255, 454 grams)
Pair it with: Fries or onion rings
Contact them: (632) 729-9108; for a minimum order of P250 and delivery charge of P35 within a 4-km radius.
