If you are looking for something new in Serendra, you should try the latest gourmet burger place — Murray & D’Vine. Its tagline says it all: “Burgers, Sliders & Damn Good Wine”.
Brava closed down, and Murray Hertz bought it from the Balducci owners. By just offering exclusive gourmet burgers in the menu, this wine place is buzzing again. It has a wide range of Gourmet Burgers — from the healthy burgers (Turkey and Ostrich) to the seafood burgers (Pacific Salmon, Sea Scallop and Tuna).
You could try the Ostrich Burger, which is lean meat that tastes like beef. But you need to order it Medium Rare so that it is not dry when served.
It also offers a sliders version of the burger for kids, which is essentially three small burgers on a skewer put on top of a conical container filled with french fries.
Murray Hertz has been living in the Philippines for 30 years and is a part owner of New Orleans in Boni High Street. I like his single-minded focus of serving just gourmet burgers and partnering them with wine. (What a strange combination, but it works!)
There are three dining areas: the al fresco area, the bar area on the ground floor, and the second floor dining area. The second floor is quite small (with around 6 tables). It could probably fit up to 15 people max.
The waiters present the gourmet burgers menu on a blackboard.

That night, we were craving for beef burgers with our favorite blue cheese. We prefer our beef cooked medium-well instead of well-done, which is usually dry.
The bestsellers in Murray are the Beef “n” Bacon and My Son-in-Law’s Spicy Beef Burger. Because of my Bicolano heritage, I love anything spicy, including burgers. It was good — except that they served it Medium Rare, where the insides are moist and mushy, which ruined the experience for me.
The burgers come with a serving of french fries and fresh vegetables (lettuce/tomato).
On a personal note, we were surprised and happy to see Syoti Joshua serving us french fries to eat. It was the first time, and it was nice to see a little kid appreciating the value of sharing.
