Stackers Burger Cafe- Resorts World Manila

After a 3-hour prenup photo shoot in Paranaque, my friend and I headed to Newport Mall to grub on snacks at Stackers Burger Cafe. Both hungry and exhausted, we hiked to the 4th floor, dropped our bags, and called in the wait staff to get our orders. It took some time for me to browse the menu and decide what to order as it was my first time to dine in Stackers.  Being a burger cafe, the menu offers a wide burger variation; it’s quite confusing for me which one to get. I want to try everything!!!

On the table:

Caesar Burger Bowl (Php 148) contains a quarter pound Australian burger patty, fresh lettuce, bacon, croutons, and Caesar dressing.

It’s quite interesting to have both burger and salad greens in one dish. To date, Stackers has the most succulent and flavorful burger patty I’ve tasted. The Caesar dressing is light and runny. It didn’t overpower the flavor of the patty. I enjoyed every bite of  this dish.

Stackers Fried Mozzarella Sticks (Php 125) consists of 5 pieces breaded mozzarella sticks deep fried to golden perfection served with a tangy tex mex ranchero dip.

This crunchy outside -gooey inside deep-fried cheese snack has a fantastic crunch and flavor. The tex mex ranchero dip compliments the chewiness of the melted mozzarella cheese.

Philly Cheese Burger (Php 155) is made up of a quarter pound beef patty topped with sautéed red and green bell peppers, onions, mozzarella cheese, and ranch dressing on a long bun.

It’s like the famous Philly Cheesesteak using burger patty instead of the traditional thinly sliced pieces of steak. This burger variation is so awesome, I wolfed it down in no time.

For an additional (Php65) on top of the burger price, you can get crispy chips and a drink.

Vanilla Milkshake (Php 90) is one of the many flavors of milkshakes on the menu. Milkshakes otherwise known as thickshakes are smooth, thick, and creamy beverages that are ice cream based and mixed with flavors for that refreshing milky goodness.

Sipping on this deliciously thick and creamy vanilla milkshake can absolutely bring a smile to one’s  face.

Overall, I give a clap, clap, clap to Stackers Burger Cafe! The Auss’m burgers, lipsmacking sides, and thick icy cold milkshakes are to die for… yes, I am coming back for more!

Lateral Drift Championship- Round 8 – Parang, Marikina

Screaming engines and smoking tires of cars in maximum lateral acceleration ‘wowed’ the crowd as skillful drivers battled for the title— 2011 Lateral Drift Champion.

It was Round 8 of the Lateral Drift Championship held in Parang, Marikina. I was ecstatic when I found out about the event; I’ve watched drifting exhibitions from car shows but this particular event was different because I was able to watch it up close. Thanks to PLDT MyDsl for the invite. Big thanks also to Mon Rayos and the rest of the team who organized the event. I had a spectacular view of the track as I was seated next to the judges. Hehehe…

The announcers constantly reminded the audience not to hold onto the bars/barriers for safety reasons. Car drifting is an exciting sport but it can also be dangerous. Overall, it’s about the excitement… the adrenaline rush it brings… as engines revved up from the starting line up to the time it exits the track.

Congratulations to Round 8 Winners:

1st place: Gio Rodriguez

2nd place: Mike Tuason

3rd place: Pao Agregado

IL Mercanti – Metrowalk, Ortigas

Another food mecca for foodies can be found in Pasig City. IL Mercanti Food Bazaar opened last September 2011, catering to families and friends as well as employees from call centers/companies nearby. It operates Wednesdays to Fridays, from 7pm to 5am.

Metrowalk has a wide parking space but it may still be hard to find a place to park your car, with a lot of people coming and wanting to try out the food here in Il Mercanti…most especially on a Friday night. As for us, it took us 30-45 min from Greenhills to Metrowalk. Whatta TERRIBLE traffic we got there! We had to wait for 15 to 20 minutes before we were able to park. Luckily, we found a table right away. We cooled ourselves down with iced tea while waiting  for our table to be cleared.

We roamed around and tried to search for something new, something interesting. There’s a large variety of food choices and one will absolutely enjoy “exploring” – it’s delightful to the senses. At very affordable prices, one can sample products such as: Mexican food, Chinese food, Filipino food, Mexican food, Korean food, Roastbeef, Lechon, Tapa, Steak, Mixed Rice, Barbecue. For snacks and drinks they have Burger, Corndog, Pizza, Pasta, Shawarma, Fish and Chips, Ice cream, Cakes and Pastries, Empanada,  Churros, Crepe, Bubble Milk Tea, and Fruit Juices.

Whew!!! I could hardly remember all the food I saw. Here are some photos of what we had for dinner.

 

The Spaghetti with Pesto sauce with Chicken tenders and Garlic bread was okay. Same goes for the Baked Macaroni. The serving was just right but it lacks flavor.

Crispy liempo thinly sliced somewhat looks like crispy bacon. It’s crunchy and a bit salty. It would’ve been perfect if served with soysauce and calamansi or vinegar. Uhmm… just a suggestion.

There’s a number of people gathered around this stall. Hmmm… the sight of the pans make me wanna try ’em all. Deep dish pizza for pizza lovers!

The pizza looks inviting… enticing… but sadly, it failed to satisfy our palate. The crust was thick and has a texture of a tasty/american bread, that absorbed the sauce. The topmost layer of the pizza did not have enough sauce which made the pizza dry and a bit hard to chew.

Oh man! You will get some sugar rush with the huge selection of sweets in IL Mercanti. We tried Blueberry Cheesecake… one of my favorites. The taste was ok but not as good as the ones sold in some famous bakeshops in the metro.

This must be the best among what I had that night. This is… AMBURGER’s Juicy Lucy with Bacon Mushroom Melt. OOOHHHLALA!!!

The patty itself is stuffed with cheese making every bite oooozing with cheesy goodness. The huge cheeseburger has generous servings of crunchy bacon, lettuce, mushroom, blue cheese, cheese sauce, onion, relish, and the thick Juicy Lucy patty.

It was awesome!!! As much as I like to finish the entire burger, I couldn’t because I had little of everything we ordered and I’m stuffed. I find this the most delish burger in town. It’s OUTRAGEOUS, I tell ‘ya!

Hurry up and experience good food and fun with your family and friends here in IL Mercanti. I know the bazaar just started and a lot of improvements will take place as they settle. I will definitely go back for some more Juicy Lucy burger and try out other food they offer.
