I'm not usually a big burger fan. I have the mood for it. I might have said this a couple of times with my entries at The Pickiest Eater. But anyhoo... We were invited to a sneak peak before it officially opens to the public, TODAY, August 23. And so far, with what I've tasted, it's one of the best I've tried! And I'm glad it's now here in the Philippines!
The place looked like a cross between a diner and a burger joint, with surf boards hung in some places for that Hawaii touch. I love the feel. Very relaxed yet exciting!
The three surfboards on the wall you see here represent the international branches of Teddy's Burgers. Aside from Hawaii, they also opened up a branch in Japan, and now, in the Philippines! Greenbelt 3 to be exact! You can find more details at The Pickiest Eater's post here.
After a couple of minutes, the place was packed with bloggers and other media people. Time to order!
Here's the anatomy of a Teddy's Bigger Burger. First of all, their special sauce is amazing! Very Hawaiian! There's really nothing like it... at least as far as I know. Their buns are fluffy potato buns. I didn't even notice they were potato buns. Very soft, and doesn't crumble. And the burgers? 100% US ground chuck and hand-partied everyday, and then char broiled to perfection. (Ground chucks mean that it has no extenders. Created the hard way. No flavors injected. No soy, no enhancers. It's 100% pure!
My large Coke Zero!
We started with these Tiki wings which is an exclusive part of the Philippine menu.
It's really good. The dip really complements the sweetish glaze of the chicken. It's almost as if the glaze had some pineapple juice in it.
Teddy's Original Burger
Teri Burger. A burger based on teriyaki sauce.
The Monster Double. Get to choose two burgers in the patty size that you want, and stack 'em together!
And check out Teddy's Specialty Toppings!
And this is my Hawaiian Style Burger. It's a teri burger with a slice of grilled pineapple. Then I had them add cheese. Because a burger without cheese for me is a big no no. It was perfect especially with the oozing special sauce! Mmmmmm-mmm!
I ordered it with fries. And oh my goodness their fries are so good! The seasoning of their plain fries reminded me of the Pik Nik ketchup flavor for some reason. It's got a bit of sugar in it. A perfect sweet and salty treat! Next time I'm ordering LARGE fries!
Bacado Burger. An excellent burger with avocado, cheddar cheese, and BACON!
And Richie's Kailua Double Monster Burger. Another Teri burger but this time topped Grilled Mushrooms, Grilled Onions and Swiss Cheese.
Going back to the fries, it can be topped with bacon, cheese sauce, bleu cheese, or grilled mushrooms for an additional P45.
For the price? To be honest, I find it pricey. But because of the quality these babies, I would go back maybe once in a while because it's really delicious. Really hits the spot for me. It caught my love for sweet and spicy. I can't wait for it to open today because I can't wait to get my jaws again on one of those burgers, and order a good serving of fries! (Diet? What diet?)
Thanks Teddy's for giving us a sneak peak! We really had fun! (I guess it's obvious with our photos below hehehe. We're really feeling the Hawaiian theme!)
