Every once in a while, you just want to let your inner carnivore out and indulge yourself with some tasty and protein-packed meal, right?
Well, that’s what Hubby and I did last Easter Sunday, not that we were heavily abstaining from meat during Lent.
However, when our original plan for lunch didn’t push through while were out on an errand in Makati, we espied a small branch of 8cuts Burger Blends along Leviste Street, and we knew we just couldn’t pass it up.
It had been years since we last had a meal at an 8cuts Burger Blends outlet, so we gamely entered this joint with a decidedly pub-like feel.
8cuts Burger Blends got its name from the eight different cuts of beef that are blended together into patties, then grilled to smokey and juicy perfection before being assembled into mouthwatering burger creations.
Needless to say, Hubby and I were quite excited to dig in to our burger meal which consisted of:
Onion Rings Bucket (Php215). Onion rings battered, deep-fried and seasoned until crispy and flavorful.
The Cheeseburger (Php230 for 1/4-pounder). Grilled quarter-pounder beef patty on lettuce, tomato and onions and topped with house cheddar and Sauce No. 3.
Q-Daddy (Php330 for 1/4-pounder). Grilled quarter-pounder patty on lettuce, tomato and onions, topped with peppered onion tanglers, sharp yellow cheddar, smoked bacon, jalapeno ranch, sweet BBQ sauce and Sauce No. 3.
Sodas (Php85 each). What’s a burger meal without some sodas?
Eating these burgers is not a neat affair. Being so meaty, juicy and packed with toppings, you can bet that there are some messes to be made. Plus, I also accidentally knocked over Hubby’s drink, which the staff helpfully cleaned up as they transferred us to another table to finish our lunch.
The place was cozy yet comfy and our quick meal here was a perfect side-quest during our errand-filled Saturday.
I don’t usually visit the Makati business district, but I’m glad that Hubby and I were able to revisit one of our old favorites here.
8cuts Burger Blends is located at the Ground Floor of Infinity Tower Suites, H. V. dela Costa corner L. P. Leviste Streets, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
