Healthy burgers

Up until a few months ago, the space beside National Book Store along Katipunan Avenue (see yesterday's post) was occupied by a branch of Jollibee, one of the biggest and most popular fast food chains in the Philippines. But Jollibee moved to a bigger space a few buildings down the street and its old space is now occupied by Mushroomburger. For the longest time, Mushroomburger's only branch was in Tagaytay City in the province of Cavite, where it has its mushroom farm (the restaurant was just a side business—its main business is supplying mushrooms to restaurants and hotels in Metro Manila). It was always a treat to be able to eat mushroom burgers during trips to Tagaytay and now it's available so near us. During the rare times when I get a craving for burgers, you know where to find me now. And the best part is, this branch also sells packs of raw mushrooms.

Reminding all CDP bloggers about our next theme day: the theme for August 1 is Bright Colors. That should prove to be another fun day to go visiting. The voting for the September theme is also ongoing. Aside from the poll in the authors-only forum, all CDP members—not just bloggers—can also vote in the poll on the portal's home page.

With time being close to a quarter to four in the morning, surely an alluring sight ;) Nice detail as well, seeing the kid, maybe dreaming of a burger as well. Please have you all a great Tuesday.

That's bright! I have no entrepreneurial gifts, so I always admire the folk who set up their own business. I don't think I could do the juggling! I must remember to include more tributes to local companies on JDP.

I love mushroom burgers! There was a place here that specialized in them, but they recently closed.

I love mushrooms period. So it follows I'd be crazy for mushroom burger. Good you can get it more frequently now and you don't have to go all the way to Tagaytay.

Do they use portabella?

Are mushroom burgurs popular in the Philipines? I remember eating one when I was there ;D
