Sango Master Cheeseburger (P98)
There is a new burger place in town which provides an alternative option for all burger lovers out there. I would not immediately associate japanese food with an american burger concept, that is why the first time I saw this I was skeptical. The Burger Master name sounded like a title from an anime cartoon, so the concept sounded weird at first. I was waiting for some people to rave about it and whipsmart’s review was enough for me to try this out. The difference is in the special sauce (like a spaghetti sauce with too much onions) they put in their master cheeseburger which blends well with the thick tomato slice and the soft bun. It is deliciously addicting especially with the slice of cheese. We only tried the burgers but there are other options in the menu. It feels like a japanese version of Jollibee that caters to the taste buds of a japanese.
The verdict, the burgers are very good and you’ll get it with a free origami! My only complaint is the poor exhaustion system inside the restaurant where if you stay too long inside, the aroma of the burger sticks to your clothes. This is similar to going to a fast food area in the malls where you would hate smelling as if you haven’t put on any deodorant for the day. An option for those who doesn’t want to smell would just to eat it outside the restaurant or just take out the food and hopefully, the food would still taste the same when you eat it at home.
The single beef patty looks like it was too small so you better opt for the double master burger (P128) or the with cheese version (P148). I know it is expensive but it is worth to try specially the master version.
Also, we tried the goboh salad for P58 and it is very small, taste ordinary and it is not worth it. If you opt not to try the goboh salad, they also offer the usual salad for P48 with the same size.
The place really caters to the Japanese community so there are a lot of Japanese reading materials instead of your usual inquirer newspaper and other magazines.
Interesting concept of having an LCD screen showing Japanese shows or anime cartoons to attract the family.
Can you go wrong with a japanese burger place frequented by japanese? The restaurant has a simple interior design accented by origami.
