TEDDY’S BIGGER BURGERS
“If bigger isn't better, then why am I so popular?” This question, lit up near the ceiling of Teddy's Bigger Burgers, is far from down-to-earth, but it has a point. The restaurant is packed, even on weekdays, and not without reason. It began with a sudden shower. Raymund Magdaluyo was vacationing in Hawaii when he got caught in the rain, and quickly took shelter in the closest establishment: a burger joint fashioned like a '50s diner. Upon trying one of its signature burgers, he was blown away by the taste and realized that it was something that he could bring home. And so, he did just that. Last August saw the launch of Teddy's Bigger Burgers' first branch in the country, which will be followed by nine stores around the Philippines— talk about going big!
What to expect:
Teddy's combines the '50s diner style of the original store with Hawaiian accents and music, transporting you to a mini-vacation of sorts. Its burgers really are huge, with the largest burgers boasting a whopping 18oz of ground beef chuck. All the burgers are made-to-order, and are best enjoyed fresh off the grill.
Try its Kailua Burger (P415+), and top it with some Peanut Butter (P35), which might sound strange, but once you try it, you'll wonder why you had never thought of it before. Teddy's Bigger Burgers, 3/L Greenbelt 3, Makati. Open from Tuesday to Saturday (5 p.m. – 1 a.m.) and on Sundays from 11 a.m. – 3 pm, and 6 pm – 10 pm.
