For the past two months, I have been intrigued by a digital poster circulating through Faceboopk about THE ULTIMATE BURGER Challenge in a new place called BUDDIES. There were 2 things that caught my attention. First, THE ULTIMATE BURGER Challenge. I am a big burger fan and I would love to try the challenge out (and hopefully succeed and not pay for that humongous burger on the poster) and second, WHERE the hell is Buddies?
I get too lazy at doing researches so I ended up forgetting about the challenge and Buddies. Until the opportunity came to visit Buddies. Little did I know that Buddies was just located in Piazza Elesia, corner Cabancalan street, Talamban, Cebu! The place is just roughly 1KM away from where I live!
BUDDIES was opened May of 2012 and in just 2 months in the market, they have gained popularity among Cebuanos and have some followings among families and students wanting to try some burgers, tacos and burritos.
So here is what we had.
Buddies’ Chili Cheese Fries is a “surFRIES” to my ignorant palate. The cheese complementing very well with the crispiness of the fries while the chili was not too overwhelming. Maybe if they could up the chilliness a bit or maybe have some chili topping as an extra for those wanting some chili overload.
Don’t forget to pair the Soft Shell Tacos with the sauce on the right side. It complements really well with it. Unfortunately, I forgot the name of the sauce.
Sold at around 89PHP, this burger is worth every buck. As a big burger fan, I can recommend this to anyone dying to satisfy their cravings to munch on a good burger. It’s patty is thick and tender. I had to set the tomatoes to the side while I munched on it as I don’t eat tomatoes. (Again, my palate is ignorant!).
This has got to be one of the best dishes Buddies can offer. If you must, please I beg you to try it. Words will never give justice to how it tastes and I’ll leave that as is. When you get the chance to visit Buddies, please order this and tell me if my assumptions are wrong.
The best of the all (in my own opinion of course with the help of my ever-trusted ignorant palate), Buddies’ Philly Cheese Steak. Upon tasting these, I wanted to order 5 more, bring it home and make love to it. That is how tasty this was.
For now, I’ll name this Steak Burrito as “The Disappointment“. Buddies’ fans (and to the 3 owners), relax! I name this as “The Disappointment” because I was not able to taste it. It was served last, my stomach was full and no matter how hard I try to convince myself there was still little space left on my tummy, I felt like I just couldn’t hold it in if I forced it (if you know what I mean). So, it was better safe than sorry.
OVERALL, if you crave for Burgers, Tacos, Hotdogs, Burritos (and some Silogs), Buddies is the place to be.
BUDDIES, I’ll be back next time to conquer the THE ULTIMATE BURGER Challenge and hopefully be donning this shirt after. I promise.
