If you’re looking for something new to try, or maybe just to celebrate a special occasion with friends and family, then Metro Manila has a lot to offer! Here are some of my own go-to places when I crave burgers, sweets, or some homemade cooking.
All fans of seafood know that if you want to pig out on the yummy critters of the ocean, Shrimp Bucket is the place to get ’em! Located at Ground Floor, Grand Hamptons Tower 1, 31st Street Corner 2nd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, this place has eclectic decorations and a comfy yet underwater-ish ambiance. It sure is quite a comfy restaurant. The place is perfect for family bonding and whatnots.
What I will show you guys though is one of their most interesting dishes, the Deep Fried Shrimp with Salted Egg and Roe. When you bite through, the shrimp is quite fresh as it is a bit sweet, not rubbery. And the salted egg gives it that interesting salty, eggy flavor. Also, it kind of feels like eating something velvety or sandy as what one would expect with salted eggs. All in all, a very nice dish to try out!
Charlie’s Grind and Grill
A hole in the wall place to chill out with the barkada, I got hooked with Charlie’s because of their quirky walls and paintings.
Even better though is the food. I recommend their Black Angus Cheeseburger, which was love at first bite for me.
The Black Angus Cheeseburger is the epitome of the perfect quintessential burger, with the flavorful juicy patty, perfectly cooked, and topped with fresh veggies for the ultimate burger experience.
Another awesome burger is their Five Cheese Burger, which has very tender and juicy patty, and five different kinds of cheese! These are: mozarella, gouda, cheddar, blue cheese bits, and drizzled with cheese sauce. With this burger packed with a lot of beefy flavorful punch and lovely lovely cheese, it’s sure to make your tastebuds sing in delight!
They also got sides to enjoy by the way, like the Dirty Fries, served with Igorota Idaho potatoes, bleu cheese, bacon bits, diced tomatoes, green onions topped with grilled chicken liver. If you’re up for an adventurous eat, with the tangy flavor of the bleu cheese, you should try this one. 😉
The place is situated in Greenbelt Radissons Condominiums, Aguirre Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City. Yeah, I guess even in Makati, if it’s in Aguirre it’s gotta be a great place! 😉
