Burgoo - Burgers and More!

Looking to satisfy my craving for a great meal, hubby decided to bring me to three different places last week.

Here's the first restaurant that we went to - Burgoo in Gateway Mall, Cubao, Quezon City.

From their long list of food items, we ordered the steak and shrimp platter.


What's on the platter:

Ribs
Spicy Shrimps
French Fries

option: corn cobs or rice, we chose rice

The food:

Taste: The ribs were tender and juicy, the marinade was just right. It tasted good even without condiments. The shrimps were small and not so spicy as one expects it to be. The fries were made from real potatoes, it was filling.

I suggest to not go for the rice, especially if there's more than two of you sharing the meal. The serving of rice was so small that it wouldn't even be enough for a single person.

The service:

We got there during the off-peak hours. The crew members were courteous and always had a smile on their faces.

It's good that the service was personalized, meaning there's only one person to serve you throughout the dining experience. Our server was fast and efficient. The drinks served in Burgoo are refillable, and our server did not wait for us to call him when our glasses were empty.

The Ambiance:

Do not sit near the windows by the mall side. I felt uncomfortable because people had the nasty habit of looking at our plate and what we were eating while they were walking by.

Aside from that, Burgoo still had crayons available so that their patrons can doodle on the manila paper spread on the table while waiting for their food. A great way to pass the time away. Our food was served within 15 minutes and we didn't notice the time passing by.

Cost:

We paid a little over Php700 for the meal. Acceptable.

Overall:

The food was good, not exceptional, but good. The serving size could have been good for three people had we not been so hungry that day. Service is something that you would expect from a place during off-peak hours (I still have to go back there during the weekends or peak hours to see if the service is still the same.)
