Burgers-and-fries have become a quick kind of meal to many, something to grab at a fast-food outlet to-go and gobble down at your office desk or while on your way to work.
Burgers at Pound by Todd English are not that kind of burgers. They are meant to be enjoyed at leisure, while relaxed amidst swanky surroundings.
Having been introduced to this restaurant by Hubby when we dined at its outlet in Eastwood City, I grabbed at the chance to get a taste of another of its burgers at its branch at SM Mega Fashion Hall.
We each ordered an Amsterdam Burger (Php280). Pound’s house ground beef patty is flame-grilled then served in soft , lightly toasted buns along with fried onions, a generous slice of pastrami, gruyere cheese, sauerkraut, mustard relish and Todd English’ signature sauce. With so many unusual ingredients, I took my time to relish the different flavors that each bite of my burger brings.
We also got some Good Ole’ Fries (Php90) to accompany our burgers. These are made from real potatoes and seasoned well to go well with Pound’s burger offerings.
If you want an upscale take on the staple burger and fries, Pound by Todd English is a good bet.
