Ugh, another gross burger from Carl’s Jr. The beef patty is SO small that you can’t even see it! Remind me never to come here again!

I really do love Super Duper Burgers. The smallish burgers are packed with flavor and the beef patties are always cooked to juicy perfection. Noms!

Buffalo chicken burger – Holy Cow!

Buffalo chicken burger - Holy Cow!
Breaded chicken fillet with chili sauce and lettuce, served with barbecue flavored fries. 210 PHP
Holy Cow!, Manila PHILIPPINES

I don’t know where the béarnaise sauce fits in, but they gave me an entire gravy boat of it, lol! I’m not sure that béarnaise screams bbq to me, but whatever. I’m not gonna judge another country’s interpretation of foreign cuisine. This burger was decent but I wish it had more chili sauce and none of the béarnaise sauce. The bbq flavored fries didn’t taste very bbq-y either.

Champ burger meal – Jollibee

Champ burger - Jollibee
1/3 pound beef patty, lettuce, tomato, cheese, ketchup and mayo. Served with French fries and soft drink. 145 PHP
Jollibee, Manila PHILIPPINES

This burger tasted pretty similar to those in the States. I’ve found that sometimes hamburgers can taste drastically different depending on the country and the local ingredients used. This was one was decent and hearty enough. The French fries were pretty tasty too!

Special burger – Dick’s Drive-In

Special burger - Dick's Drive-In
Single 1/8 pound grilled patty with lettuce, mayonnaise and pickle relish. $1.80
Dick’s Drive-In, Seattle WA

We might have been drunk on this night and I might have fallen on my butt in the Dick’s parking lot, but those are all just rumors, lol! Being from Seattle, I absolutely LOVE Dick’s burgers. I’ll even go as far to as to say that I prefer them over In-N-Out, GASP! But it’s true. They have such a distinctive taste and texture, and they go down WAY too easily. Another reason why I don’t think I was drink was that I ordered a Special instead of a Deluxe! I definitely was sober enough to foolishly care about caloric intake. I’m an idiot!

McDonald’s, Boracay PHILIPPINES

OK, this is the last McDonald’s pic for a while, lol! Promise. This cheeseburger was pretty standard and very similar to those in the US. It did it’s job and kept us going between “real” meals. 🙂

Spiced whole chicken meat topped with lettuce and special mayo. 99 PHP
McDonald’s, Boracay PHILIPPINES

We caved in and got McDonald’s because it was close to our section of the beach and we needed an afternoon snack. I think this McSpicy sandwich is much better than the McChicken sandwiches back in the States. Hmm, screwed once again.
