Burgers have a nearly universal appeal.
The way that ground beef patties grilled to juicy and delicious perfection, other fixins and sauces thrown in to add new dimensions of flavor, and the fluffy buns to encase all those yummy elements come together into that appetizing burger are sure to get many of us salivating.
Well, there’s a new name in burgers within the local foodie scene, and that’s Bored & Hungry.
The burger shop based in Long Beach, California is built around a cryptocurrency theme. Restaurateur Andy Nguyen bought three non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from the Bored Ape Yacht Club, one of which became the store’s official logo.
Initially opened as a ninety-day pop-up in Long Beach, its launch attracted over 1,500 customers, prompting Nguyen to make the restaurant permanent, offering a streamlined menu of smash burgers, veggie burgers, French fries and soda while accepting payments in US dollars and cryptocurrency.
Well, it soon made its way to Philippine shores, opening limited-time popup stores at the Marriott Grand Ballroom and at Powerplant Mall’s The Grid Food Market.
The good news is that the Tasteless Food Group and Hungry Dao brought it back and is giving it a permanent outpost at The Grid Food Market starting March 10, 2023, making this Bored and Hungry’s first Asian branch.
You know what that means: the metro’s foodies now have more opportunities to feast on the burger joint’s much-lauded Bored OG Burger.
Made with two all-beef patties smashed thin and grilled until crispy around the edges along with caramelized onions, slices of American cheese and house-made burger sauce encased in butter-toasted brioche buns, the Bored OG Burger is an experience not to be missed; it has even been cited by Good Morning America as America’s Best Burger of 2022.
At Php395 ala carte, it’s now priced Php200 cheaper than at previous popups, thanks to the group being able to source local suppliers for the burger’s ingredients.
I just love the rich beefiness of this juicy burger, along with its the deliciously crispy edges that explode with flavor with every bite.
Burger fans who want to complete their burger meal may opt for a Bored OG Burger Combo which already includes the burger, fries and drink for Php595.
They can also just choose to order the French fries ala carte for Php150.
So don’t miss the chance to savor Bored & Hungry’s celebrated burger offering as its available for a limited time only!
Bored and Hungry is located at Stall No 7, The Grid Food Market, R2 Level Expansion, Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Drive corner Estrella, Makati, 1200 Metro Manila. (A second branch is also coming soon at Public Eater, Fourth Floor New Wing, Robinsons Magnolia, Quezon City).
The Grid Food Market is the resident food hall of Powerplant Mall which offers a wide range of flavors to cater to various cravings.
