Foodtripping in Maginhawa QC #1: The Burger Project

The Burger Project

While we were cruising around Maginhawa Street in Teacher’s Village looking for the Korean restaurant that was recommended by another blogger, Nina’s friend called her and told her to try this newest burger joint in the area, The Burger Project. Since we really can’t find the Korean restaurant (because it wasn’t in Maginhawa Street, it was in Malingap), we decided to try The Burger Project out since we’re already hungry. Again, we’re with the foodtripping gang: Juned and Nina.

It’s a new place, just opened last month. They don’t have an actual menu yet. Basically the customer will create their own burger however they feel like having. We were asked to fill out the form with prices so that we already estimate how much you will be paying before the cashier rings it up. The best thing of all is that you can name your burger and when you come back, you can just tell the cashier the name of your burger. I named my burger the  Foodtrippings Burger while Karla named hers as Burgerella.

Foodtrippings Burger at the Burger ProjectThe Foodtrippings Burger by Sharlyne Ang @Php 210

The Foodtrippings Burger is made of 100% beef patty, Canadian bacon, caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, mozarella cheese and Wasabi mayonnaise.

The Burgerella at The Burger Project

The Burgerella by Karla Redor @ Php 190

The Burgerella is made of 100% beef patty, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, mozarella and Special Burger sauce.

All of us agree that the burgers were really good. The patty’s size is 1/3 pound, similar to a Quarter Pounder of Mcdonald’s or a Brother’s burger. I would say that this can be compared to Brother’s Burger and definitely not like your typical tasteless Mcdonald’s burger. The best thing about their patties is that it’s not overcooked. They’re very generous on the add-ons and these only cost from 25-35 pesos.

Onion Rings at The Burger ProjectOnion Rings @ Php 65

We also tried their Onion Rings. It seems that they dipped the white onions in a batter which resulted to a smooth form. One order of this can already be shared by 3 – 4 people.

Fries at The Burger Project

French Fries Php 65 (?)

Their French Fries are served in generous proportions. It has a salty taste, seems to me that the evident taste is Paprika (not sure though). Same as the onion rings, this can be shared by 3 – 4 people.

Buffalo Chicken Wings at The Burger Project

Buffalo Wings @ Php 165

While we were there, we got the chance to talk to Ruben, one of the owners of Burger Project. When he learned that we’re food bloggers, he gave us free Buffalo Wings. Even though it was shameful of us to accept this, we still did, as a courtesy for his kindness (Thanks Ruben!). The Buffalo Wings were really spicy, if you’re not a fan of spicy wings, this isn’t for you. I can compare this to the Buffalo Wings of Buffalo’s Wings and Things in Ortigas Home Depot, although this is much cheaper.

The place is fairly new but they already have a regular crowd. They just recently opened for lunch; previously they only opened 6 – 11 pm. They will also have designer burgers which will cater customers who don’t really like to experiment.

As mentioned earlier, they will keep the order forms of burgers created by customers for future orders. I just hope that they can have an electronic database of all the burgers so that they can easily find the burger and customers can just customize it more if they have other add-ons.
