CaliBurger has finally landed in Philippines! I wanted to try it ASAP because of the drool-worthy instagram photos they've been posting.
The Cheese, his friend Jam and I went to the CaliBurger Tomas Morato branch. The staff wears cute floral polos!
Wait for the light and buzz to pick your orders.
The second floor.
From second floor looking down. You will have the urge to run, jump and swim those turquoise water. Dang.
We ordered their regular Hamburger and wild style fries (you have to pay extra 100 to make your fries wild, a bit hefty in my opinion but no choice because I want to try what the fuzz is all about).
Honestly, there's nothing special with their burgers. I'm not sure if the Cali Double has something special on it or the Chicken Cheeseburgers. It's not something you write home about. It tasted bland and lacks that certain oomph (not sure if it's cos they're on soft opening yet or what). For the same price (or even less), I can enjoy a more satisfying and good-tasting burger from other burger joints scattered in the metro (Snack Shack, Charlie's to name a few).
For sure CaliBurger will have a lot of other patrons, those who don't mind if their burgers are a bit on the bland side but I seriously do hope they improve this. Personally, I don't think I'll have reason to come back for seconds unless they offer something new and really interesting stuff on their menu or if their wild style fries becomes less expensive hee.
