While most of the burgers I encounter tend to be on the laidback and downhome in terms of ingredients and aesthetics, every once in a while, I get to encounter a few of these which are more of the trendy and stylish variety.
The burgers in Pound by Todd English are of the latter kind.
An offshoot of the burger station of the Todd English Food Hall in Bonifacio Global City, Pound by Todd English, follows brings a simple menu of reasonably priced burger hits that are sure to interest burger enthusiasts out there, while offering a cozy and stylish nook in which to indulge their burger cravings.
Its branch in Eastwood City Mall, in particular, follows the Prohibition Era aesthetics of of its other branches. Distressed white bricks on the walls provide a gorgeous backdrop to dark brown-upholstered seats, marble-topped tables and brass mugs. Copper lanterns and tea lights provide warm lighting for the diners and the food masterfully presented in wooden trays.
Hubby recommended going to Pound by Todd English branch for dinner during our family #Saturdate at Eastwood City with #ExhibitA, having already tried out its MOA branch with his officemates.
Our stylish burger dinner consisted of:
Onion Cube (Php90). Crispy battered onion rings shaped into an Instagram-friendly cube.
Amsterdam Burger (Php280). Pound’s house ground beef patty accompanied by fried onions, pastrami, Gruyere cheese, sauerkraut, mustard relish and T.E. Sauce.
Portobello Mushroom Sliders (Php280). Juicy mushrooms accompanied by caramelized onions, fried onions, lettuce, tomato and cilantro aioli. I don’t usually go for a resto’s vegetarian options but I found this quite flavorful and quite a welcome break from the heavier meals I’ve been indulging in lately.
Backyard Double Cheeseburger (Php380). Two ground beef patties accompanied by cheddar cheese, crisp iceberg lettuce, tomato and onion.
All the burgers were sandwiched inside Pound’s lightly toasted, soft burger buns which were marked with the resto’s signature pound sign (or should I say hashtag sign?). 🙂
I wouldn’t mind returning to get myself more of these luxe burgers.
