Before watching Big Hero 6, we decided to have a quick snack at Teddy’s Bigger Burgers in Greenbelt, Makati. The place was a bit cramped but we declined to take a seat outside. Luckily, a table was vacated few minutes after we came in.
I ordered for a medium cooked Teddy’s Original Burger that comes with some french fries and iced tea (PHP 365.00). Given the price, I expected so much since I tasted really good burgers that were even cheaper. However, I would say that their burger was just okay. It wasn’t bad at all but it wasn’t really good either. It surely was big but it lacked taste and juiciness for me. Perhaps, if the price was lower, I would recommend it.
Indian food is one of my favorites. If you are looking for one, you better try Queens at Bollywood. I’ve been to their Greenbelt 3 branch and I am not sure whether they have other branches. The food and staff are really nice. It’s worth every penny.
The staff served us with complimentary Papadum first. It’s a crispy, round Indian appetizer. I have to warn you about the dip – lentil and tamarind dips are very addictive. They are very rich in flavor that you would find it difficult to stop munching the crackling with it. It could also be too spicy for some people.
Next in line is the Chicken and Vegetable Samosa. You have the option to have all chicken, all vegetable or a combination of both. I prefer the Vegetable Samosa over the Chicken Samosa. This is actually an Indian fried or baked pastry filled with potatoes, peas, etc.
Lastly, we got Butter Naan and Chicken Tikka Masala. Naan is a common oven-baked flatbread. I love dipping this on the tomato buttered and spiced sauce of the Chicken Tikka Masala. If I remember it right, they have three flavors of Naan – butter, cheese and garlic.
Overall, this is one of the best Indian restaurants I’ve been to in the Metro. Price would probably range from Php 400.00 – Php 700.00 per person.
Although Banana Leaf has long been existing, it was my first time to actually try it.
This one is the Baby Back Ribs. We were surprised how quick it was served. It’s a good order and will definitely try it again. The meat was partly tender to slightly tough but you’ll never go wrong with the taste! It is also good to partner with rice.
Second dish served was Pad Thai Banana Leaf Style. It was really different from a typical Pad Thai. Pad Thai’s I tried usually came with more noodles than veggies and meat. This one was the other way around as you can see in the photo. It had some ingredients on it that were unrecognizable to me. Another good dish.
This one was supposed to be an appetizer but it was served last. We even made two to three follow-ups for this one. We even planned to cancel this order because we were done eating and already full. Someone said that this is really good so it sortta built our expectations. Sadly, it is just an okay piece for us. Nothing to fancy, actually.
To note, Citibank credit card gave us some discount.
