Backyard Burger’s Truffle Burger
PHP 215 – 1/2 pound mozzarella-stuffed beef patty, truffled shiitake mushrooms, and cheddar cheese on freshly baked hoagie bun
Simply put, if you see a half-pound truffle burger on a menu selling for just PHP 215, you don’t think about it, you just order it. Stuffed with mozzarella and topped with shiitake mushrooms on a freshly baked oatmeal hoagie bun, this burger, like most everything else at Backyard Burgers, is a downright steal.
Apart from the slice of cheddar you see on the burger above, the patty itself is stuffed with mozzarella, which oozes out with each bite. If you’ve never had a burger stuffed with cheese like this, it makes for a different, more fun experience. Though unpronounced, the flavor of truffle is indeed there, mixed in with the shiitake. You kinda have to hunt for it since they don’t put a lot, but hey, what did you expect for PHP 215? At that price, I was just happy to get a whiff of it now and then.
The burger itself wasn’t the best-tasting that I’ve had, Charlie’s is definitely better, but it was pretty good nonetheless, and still better than many other local burger joints. The patty was juicy, beefy, and substantial at half a pound, but it could have used a little more seasoning in my opinion.
What really made me love this burger though, apart from the price, was the bread. It’s my personal belief that a sandwich can only be as good as the bread that it’s on, and this chewy hoagie roll was killer. I loved it.
Verdict: 3.5 / 5
