We’ve been often dining at Burgerista, but I have totally forgotten to write/feature it. School off started so we now have some time to spend outside, also on the bed if they want to. ^_^ Since it’s a Saturday, we went out for a quick shopping trip to the mall. The kids only had bread after waking up later than usual so we went straight to Burgerista to have a small meal. (Dad is somewhere up north, that’s why he couldn’t be with us).
Burgerista’s drink-all-you-can feature is an effective attraction for the kids to choose it over any other food establishment. While they have in-house lemonades, iced teas, there’s also a selection of non-alcoholic beverages. We always tend to get lemon iced tea.
Love at First Bite
Some may argue that “it’s just a burger”, but a good burger is one that has juicy patties. Burgerista’s beef patties are not juicy, they’re cooked right and tender. Burgerista offers add-ons for a price and also reductions to their burgers. Their lowcarb burger essentially substitutes burger buns with lettuce. While there are still the usual ingredients with carbohydrates, you can opt to remove them.
Being Creative Not Just with Burgers
Burgerista offers notepads and colored pencils,so one can doodle while waiting for food to be served. These are then displayed on their corkboards, sometimes on their instagram account as well.
Kids had better burgers than these cheeseburgers for kids. The sizes for each burger is rather small even for kids. Not ideal if you are really hungry and there are 3 of you sharing. But since it was an after snack snack, there were no complaints. I guess they really just wanted the all-you-can-drink option. ^_^
Choosing Dips and Sauces
Burgerista’s table are loaded with sauces and dips you can choose from. For kids who like potatoes a lot, they have a wide range to pick one that matches your mood fort he day. Some of their favourites are steak fries and apple barbecue.
Here Comes Freshness
Burgerista cooks their burgers in the open, you can literally watch as the cook your burger patty. And because it’s a build-your-burger joint, you can easily pick out what to put in. For additional cents, you can include bacon slices and more cheese, and remove the tomatoes, if like me, you don’t want them in burgers. ^_^
You get a pager when you order, it will vibrate when your order as ready as with other restaurant pager systems.
Another interesting offering from Burgerista is the lowcarb option for all burgers. Instead of the usual burger buns, you can opt to have your burger in lettuce instead. I usually have this – with bacon, cheese, mayonaise, and no ketchup/tomatoes. Yeah, it seems boring to some, but it works for me. And the potatoes go to the kids’ trays. 😀
