With tons of burger restaurants in and around the metro and with each of them claiming to offer something unique to invite customers, it gets quite difficult to know which of them actually stands out.
Fortunately, folks… being a burger lover myself and having been to a good number of these specialty food spots, pointing you guys to some of the places that serve great tasting burgers is hardly any problem. That being said, I’d like to recommend a fairly new restaurant that specializes in burgers that not only taste incredible, but are also very reasonably priced.
Right inside SM Supercenter in Pasig City (just beside Tiendesitas) is a quaint little restaurant called, “The Great American Burger Joint” but more popularly known simply as, “The Burger Joint”.
The Burger Joint at SM Supercenter Pasig is a haven for people who truly know their burgers.
Just recently, my wife and I, together with a few foodie buddies of ours visited The Burger Joint at SM Supercenter Pasig. With eager and ready appetites, we tried a good number of their offerings which, I must say, progressed and ended spectacularly well.
According to the owners of The Burger Joint at SM Supercenter Pasig, since travel is a major part of their lifestyle, they wanted their burgers to incorporate the various distinct flavors that span the East Coast to the West. The intention is to give each dish its own unique personality.
What makes The Burger Joint at SM Supercenter Pasig different?
There are many reasons why The Burger Joint at SM Supercenter Pasig is significantly different (and better) than other similar establishments. Their burgers are made “on-site” every single day. They use ALL-BEEF burger patties that consist of 1/2 sirloin and 1/2 chuck. The Burger Joint proudly makes their very own brioche buns on a daily basis. Sauces are made in-house as well. Absolutely no extenders are used for every dish. All their burgers are prepared using the “smash” technique which doesn’t just make the meat taste good, it actually makes the beef patty taste more meaty. Apart from that, “smashing” maximizes browning of the beef and gives it a delightful crusty texture while retaining all its flavorful juices.
