Army Navy Burger + Burrito Dabawenyo
So, where's the air force? I was kiddingly asking my wife when we arrived at this recently opened restaurant at Abreeza Mall here in Davao. It was recommended by my wife's co-workers that the place was a must try, especially their burgers. Already hungry and curious at the same time, we never had second thoughts in trying the place out.
There was no vacant table when we arrived at the place... hmmm, that's a good indication that the food might be really good or it might just be that a lot of people was, like us, looking for something new. So while waiting, I got to look around and observe. Sizing up the place, it may just have 25-30 seating capacity. They had this arc trademark, resembling a Quonset hut which was used commonly in barracks during WWII. And they had these signs on their wall, same as that on the road but with a twist that it's for food.
Before I memorized every corner of the place, we had a table for 2. We ordered their single quarter-pound patty burger and "FreedomFries". And just like Yellow Cab Pizza, you pay then wait for your priority number or name to be called, then get your order in the counter.
So, hows the food? The burger looks appetizing with its bun topped with black and white sesame seeds. Personally loved the crunch of fresh (crispy) lettuce with the beef patty and all the dressings. It also had this slight peppery taste that added to its appeal. And the fries, well, just like how they described it; seasoned and thin-cut, making it crispy and zesty. It's just like KFC's fries, only thinner.
How about the prices? The burger costs Php 155 each, fries Php 65, and soda in can Php 40. More expensive than most value meals but cheaper than most buffet meals. Well, it really depends on how deep is your pocket.
So, will we return? Definitely, our tummies and taste buds were satisfied, but I guess, not that often though... LOL. Yahweh bless.
