Guests entering a restaurant three minutes before it closes is technically okay. But this situation is one of the most hated circumstances by that of the waiters and cooks. This is especially true when the kitchen has started to do its cleaning and sanitizing. Cooks would not have the choice but to gloomily re-grease their pots, pans and griddle and degrease it again later on when all orders of the oblivious close-to-being-late customer has been dispatched.
This is exactly what I did! And in the above scenario, I was the customer. Since it’s almost closing time, I expected that my orders would be nothing spectacular. I was actually expecting the food to be unmeticulous, negligent and haphazard.
But all my worrying expectations were all false! I was served, what could be considered one of the best gourmet burgers in Manila! Congratulations to Hunger Buster. This burger joint located at the 2nd floor of University Mall in Taft Avenue gave me what I never expected.
It was so delicious, I wanted to drag other folks dining at a nearby restaurant and tell them “what the hell are you doing in that measly resto when an awesome gourmet burger joint in Manila is just under your freakin’ nose!?”
It was the type of burger that I love. Hunger Buster provides disposable plastic hand gloves because their burger is a gloriously messy creation. All elements I wanted for a burger was there: tender and flavorful meat, crispy bits of savory bacon, provocatively dripping greasy juices and gooey cheese! And despite the dripping juices, the soft and tasty bun never turned sad and soggy. For me it was one surprising burger!
I will definitely be back at Hunger Buster and on that time, I will step in 2 minutes before it closes! Hahaha!
An-ekspekted and sarap!
