Starting our feast off with a classic, the Arcy’s BBQ Cheese Burger, it was an instant taste of what might be one of the greatest hidden gems of San Juan, La Union. This burger features a 150-gram beef patty cooked to perfection, topped with homemade barbecue sauce, and some cheddar cheese, all sandwiched between flavorful brioche buns.
