Restaurant Discovery: Burp

I get so excited every time I get to read a list of new restaurants near my area. Well, aside from being excited, I get frustrated too as there are times when I hardly know any from the lists. It means that I don’t get to explore that much and it makes me wonder what I do on weekends. Anyway, one list covers the restaurants in Mandaluyong and I was surprised that out of 20 or so, I was only able to visit 5. FIVE. It made me a bit disappointed with myself as a foodie. I must bring back the foodie the explorer in me. And so on my anniversary with work I decided to visit…

I’m not exactly sure when this restaurant opened but it was part of the list I “reviewed” a few months back. It was pretty small but it could accommodate around 20 diners. Parking though is very limited.

The menu had a handful of choices from appetizers which are mostly soup and salad, sandwiches, breakfast meals, mains such as ribs and pork chops, pasta and desserts. There are a few shakes and frappes as well.

I decided to go for the Truffle Mac and Cheese (PHP245) and Stuffed Chicken with Garlic Cream Sauce (PHP245) while R went for the Roast Beef with Red Wine Sauce (PHP345). For drinks, I opted for the house blend iced tea (PHP55) while R got the Dulce de Leche Frappe (PHP125). We also ordered a slice of Blueberry Cheesecake Frost (PHP125) for dessert.
First served were our drinks.
My iced tea tasted like tamarind candy while R’s frappe was quite light (rather than thick) and milky.
Next served was the Truffle Mac and Cheese and it was pretty good. It was creamy and there was a slight taste of cheese. You couldn’t really smell the truffles but for the price, it was a pretty good deal.
The stuffed chicken was pretty good too. I loved the crunch of the breading and the creaminess of the cheese. The garlic cream sauce also made it addicting. R actually liked my meal more than his.
And speaking of R’s dish, the roast beef was pretty okay though it was tougher than expected.
The dessert on the other hand was decent. Nothing spectacular but pretty okay given its price.

Overall, it was a good and filling dinner. But I’ll probably have dessert elsewhere next time.

Burp is located at Pioneer Highlands, Madison Street, Mandaluyong City.
