Charlie’s Grind & Grill’s BLACK ANGUS Cheeseburger with Shrooms

PHP 415 – Cheddar cheese, butter leaf lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, mustard, and mayonnaise on a butter bun with portobello mushroom.

First off, I have to be honest and say that this wasn’t my first choice today. I actually wanted the wagyu version of this burger, but they were all out of wagyu patties, so I had to “settle” for this one. With that said, I wasn’t the least bit disappointed.

This black angus version, served with a generous, breaded hunk of portobello, was a burger and mushroom lover’s dream. I’ve enjoyed several Charlie’s burgers before, with both black angus and wagyu patties, but the portobello in this one really took it to another level. Thick with crunchy breading, it was more than just an accent, it was like being gifted with a second patty in your burger. Substantial and delicious, the portobello was earthy, juicy, and almost meat-like in texture. Couple that with one of the best-tasting, freshly ground beef patties that you can find here in Manila, and you have a burger that’s quite honestly, one of the best I’ve ever tasted.

If the black angus version of this burger was already this good, I can’t imagine what the wagyu must taste like.

Verdict: 4.5 / 5
