Wednesday was a "blue" (get it, as opposed to red) letter day for us, Obama had just won the election and we were feeling pretty good about everything. We went to the victory parties that were held by members of Democrats Abroad, needless to say that there was drinks and just good times, first at a house party and then at Myron's at Greenbelt Mall. Needless to say that by the time we left the parties I was feeling very little pain.
But back to the burger, after Myron's I thought it might be a good idea to pick up at least a snack since we hadn't eaten much so far and decided to go to Bubba Gump's also at Greenbelt. We've been there a couple of times before but always had gotten shrimp or fish; (Tina, don't know why you never wanted to go there when we were in NY :-) ) but this time I noticed that they had a burger on the menu so had to give it a try.
When it came out it sure looked good, medium, with lettuce, tomato, not sure about onion. Asked for some mustard and with that and ketchup I dug in. After the first bite, I thought that this might be it and by the time I'd finished I was sure. So, although I want to try it again it so far has my number one rating for the Great American Burger here in Metro Manila. Friday's bacon cheeseburger was also good but the cheese just didn't make it to the number one spot.
But we're not done yet, they are opening a Chili's here soon and have just heard about a place at the Shangri-La Mall called "Tender Bob's" which describes them having Homestyle great American burgers. So stay tuned and we'll keep you informed.
