I do not know what’s with Burgoo that I always go back to it. I remember whenever I go to Robinson’s Galleria or Powerplant Mall, Burgoo has always been my choice of dining place. It’ll most probably be because it has great ambiance that we can stay there for a long time just to chit-chat and enjoy good food.
There was a short time that Burgoo was closed in powerplant mall for some renovation. Well, the finished product is okay. They just changed the look of the place. It became a bit darker in my opinion but change is something we always welcome.
I noticed as well that Burgoo knows the importance of customer service. There were servers scattered around the place to ensure that whenever any of their guests would need them, they’d surely see and be able to serve ASAP. I appreciate that, even though there was a male server who stood there and his mind was wandering somewhere else hahaha!
I was starving and my friends were too! I checked the menu and browsed through all the pages before I decided which dish to order. We ordered several appetizers but I settled for a main dish. Here are our orders:
- Lemon Iced Tea (Php 69)
Don’t we love bottomless drinks? They also have Coca-cola products & lemonade.
- Cookies & Cream (Php 145)
If you want a more ‘exciting’ drink, then this cookies & cream is for you. I’d much prefer iced teas or sodas though, I believe our food were rich enough for me to settle for simpler drinks hehehe.
- Gambas al Ajillo (Php 325)
If Sharleen didn’t order this, I wouldn’t have known that Burgoo’s gambas is good! I know now that the next time I visit the restaurant, Gambas will definitely in my must-order list. Burgoo’s version of Gambas has the prawns sauteed with olive oil, garlic, tomato sauce, cilantro & chili flakes with bell peppers & mushrooms. I believe the flavors blended perfectly and definitely perfect for our taste buds. I was really impressed!
- Buffalo Chicken Wings (Php 295)
buffalo wings with bleu cheese dressing served w/ 2 pieces of celery sticks. When I saw this dish, I was weirded out. I think w/ just 6 pieces of wings they could put it in a smaller plate. The buffalo tasted great but I guess they need to improve on the presentation.
- Extra Supreme Nachos (Php 295)
Terrific presentation! Tons of ingredients put into the crispy nachos: beef, pico de gallo, jalapeno slices, chicken breast and black olives. Salsa & cheese sauce were also served, we can ask for refill of the sauces too!
I don’t know if it’s just me but I enjoy eating nachos without anything but the sauce. I guess I’m different that way
- Grilled Pork Chops (Php 425)
Can I just say that Burgoo cooks the best porkchop dishes? I was really impressed at how tasty and how delicious and perfectly cooked their porkchop were. If you’re not fond of fried dishes then you can order their version of juicy grilled pork chops.
- Breaded Pork Chops (Php 425)
I ordered 2 pieces of pork chops instead of 1 piece as the difference is just minimal (Php 100). I tried a bite of their grilled pork chop and I was already impressed. When I got to try my order of breaded pork chops, I was more than ecstatic. It was delicious too! It was marinated perfectly as even without any sauce, it was tasty! The pork chops were very tender too. I was only able to finish 1 pork chop and I brought the rest to my mom. She loved it too!
So friends, that was my lunch & dinner that day. 2 meals in one shot haha! I also thoroughly enjoyed the company of friends. Whenever we meet up, it’s always at Powerplant mall. I wish we can meet at other malls next time but if we meet and it’s at Powerplant mall again, I’ll try to have a conscious effort to try other restaurants or else, we might be dining at Burgoo again.
