The Burger Project
For our 6th anniversary, Dio wanted for us to have lunch somewhere we rarely go to. And since we heard of several great restaurants in the QC area, we decided to try one out.
Unfortunately, we got lost inside UP Village.
We just randomly told the tricycle driver to take us to 122 Maginhawa Street. Much to our dismay, we discovered that the restaurant we were looking for was on the other side of that street. But since we were there already, we decided the restaurant currently standing on 122 – The Burger Project.
Dio and his friends have always wanted to try that restaurant since it was well-known for it’s awesome burgers. And so we did.
Once inside, we instantly became fascinated with the “Designer Burgers” posted on a blackboard on the wall. It had funky names like “Bleu Buffalo” and “Tokyo Pop“. And at once, we wanted to try them all.
At 200 pesos, the Bleu Buffalo was money well spent. The burger was huge, the patty was Angus beef, and best of all, it had Bleu cheese. Not only that, but their fries were real potatoes just for the cost of 60 bucks!
Their menu was funky too! You will to fill it out for yourself, with the burger ingredients you want to have. From the bun choices to the patties to the toppings even until the sauces, you could have a burger custom made just for you. And not only that, you could name your burger with whatever you want!
As for the ambiance, the place was probably designed for the students living nearby. It was cozy and relaxed, enough for you to talk to your friends, have a little get-together, or plainly just hang out.
Our date at The Burger Project was just the way we wanted it – relaxed, fulfilling and fun. We might go here again if we do get lost around the area looking for the vast array of restaurants inside UP Village.
