i wouldn't have found out about charlie's delicious burgers if i hadn't been working in ortigas. so i guess, even though it takes me an hour to get to work, being here in pasig does have its perks.
located in east capitol drive in kapitolyo, pasig, charlie's stands beside a local carwash and internet cafe, and serves one of the best value angus burgers i know. the place, though small, is pretty clean, and the menu offers a variety of yummy treats:
the place was already full when we arrived, but the line still wasn't as long as when we left. unfortunately for susie and me, they ran out of fries last saturday, so we made do with their burgers. i got the black angus burger and vanilla milkshake, while 'sus decided to add smoked bacon to his burger, and pair it with a bottle of san mig light.
i think we waited just five minutes for our burgers to arrive. not bad, since they make them as you order. i was a bit disappointed that it didn't look that appetizing, and was actually worried that it might not measure up to my expectations.
but with just one bite, all my worries were gone. the patty was juicy and incredibly tasty, i really couldn't believe i only paid P150 for it (but to the owner of charlie's, please don't raise your prices!). it was topped by huge onion and tomato slices, and a humongous lettuce leaf.
the burger went well with my strawberry milkshake, though i wouldn't order their shakes next time. at P150, it didn't feel worth it. maybe i'll try one of their "american craft" beers when i go back. and their portobello mushroom, and their philly cheese steak, and their snap dawgz, and...
