Caliburger Philippines, one of the newest and hippest food spot in Manila, introduced three new products this month. These are the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger, Onion Rings, and Cali Sweet Wings. Luckily, we were invited to try these out at their Century City Mall branch in Makati.
Although Caliburger just opened its doors last Febuary here in the Philippines, they have become a popular food trip destination among the youth. I guess it is the feel good vibes that one gets by just being inside a Caliburger joint. The benches and seats, the crew's get-up, and the design of the area itself, particularly the little details, remind me of the beach. Californian, indeed!
At their Century City Mall branch, they have this huge screen where they show some of the happenings during their grand opening in both the Century City Mall and Timog branches. Anyway, here's a copy of the clip where you could see their Cali Girl, Carla D.:
Food at Caliburger is very limited. It's either you want to eat at Caliburger or not. But basing on the crowd when we went there, people still flock the area proving that it their dishes are definitely something!

Of course, Caliburger believes that fresh tastes best. Their made-to-order meals are always prepared in open kitchens by experienced chefs who carefully monitor quality and adhere to strict standards for processing, cooking, and sanitation. These all add up to a difference you taste in their products.
The first one that we tried is the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger. It is a mouthwatering cheeseburger layered with 100% USDA Prime Angus Beef patty, double smoked bacon, and sweet and tangy house-made BBQ sauce. I liked this one a lot because the veggies are really fresh and I just love bacon so much. I have a sweet tooth so I appreciated the sweet BBQ sauce as well. The patty was really juicy and so good that I wanted it to be larger in size. :p

The Onion Rings, on the other hand, are hand-battered with a touch of thyme. I'd never eat fresh, uncooked onions my entire life, but I liked this one a lot. The onions were cut very thinly. Thus, it is more flavorful. The batter is very crispy while the onions remain soft and yummy!

My favorite would definitely be their new Cali Sweet Wings! These are juicy chicken wings with soy honey glaze. They're best eaten when still hot. The chicken were just as tender as I expect it to be and the soy honey glaze won't let me stop eating. It's just that good!

I have to commend Caliburger's staff though for being the most cheerful and the most accommodating bunch of people I have met. They were all smiles for the camera and were greeting everyone. They're just happy people sending good vibes to their customers.
Thanks Caliburger for inviting me to try out your latest dishes! I can't wait to go back and have more chicken wings and perhaps try the milkshakes. :D
