There are a lot of good places to eat along Maginhawa St. in Quezon City. Since we live in the area, my sister and I have decided to try eat in at least one restaurant every week or every month or whenever we feel like having a good feast and because Burger Project is the one nearest our home, it became our first stop.
The place is really small, it can only accommodate 6 tables inside and around 4 tables outdoors. Judging by the look, it caters to the young with all the colorful chairs and graphics. The interior borders to a retro/vintage style diner which makes the place look casual and laid back. The menu of house specials – written on a blackboard is a good idea, catchy and easy to read and makes you feel like you’re ready to eat those burgers.
What I loved about ordering my burger is I can choose from a variety of ingredients I can put. The waiter hands you an order form containing a list of all the ingredients you need to make a good burger. First you choose your patty, they have Angus beef, beef and chicken, in 1, 2 or 3 patties. Next you choose which bun, poppyseed, potato or oatmeal – the poppyseed bun comes free with your burger, the other 2 are just upgrades. Then, you choose which toppings you want, from the basic (free) to premium (additional amount per topping) to cheeses and sauces. Name it, they have it. Surely no topping is left unlisted. And the last part – naming your burger. A surely custom treat.
For those who aren’t as experimental with their food and are afraid of having their burgers come out funny, don’t worry, they have designer burgers you can choose from though you cannot name it as you want. Aside from burgers, they also have a variety of sides and milkshakes and other beverages to pair with your burger.
And after what feels like eternity of picking out the best toppings – its time to give out the order form. Waiting time depends on how much you have put on your order and the number of customers they cater to during your dining. But I have to say it takes less than 10 minutes for your burger to get called. And alas, it’s time for a gastronomic feast – featuring Aleph Brgr with onion rings and vanilla milkshake. Bon appétit!
