Sango! The Burger Master! HAI!

...and so our beefy love affair continues..

To celebrate our 63rd monthsary (I have a strong feeling we'll continue to celebrate our monthsaries till we're old and gray Ü YaY!), Paul and I had dinner at one of our favorite casual dining restaurants. We love it so much that we used to travel all the way to its first branch in Mile Long along Amorsolo street in Makati. Thankfully, they have opened a second branch along Pearl Drive which is way closer to home and the office.

Sango! The Burger Master is one place that never cease to tickle my fancy. With its brightly-lit store setting to its origami give-aways and of course, it's good Japanese burgers and cornflakes shake, my Sango experience continues to get better and better with every visit.

I also love the fact that the service is always very good. Upon entering the restaurant, you'll be greeted by the head server with a warm "Irasshaimase!!" which means "Welcome" in Japanese.

Choosing what to order is always difficult because I want to try a lot of things but eventually, I always go with my favorites. *sigh*

Sango's Yakiniku Rice Burger (Php. 109) has a generous serving of not-so-lean beef strips sandwiched in between the best tasting rice patties (of course, it's made of Japanese rice), fresh crispy lettuce and a spread of Japanese mayo. It's so tasty and filling that one sandwich is all you need. Be careful though with your first bite as they cook this on a per order basis so the rice burger is served piping hot.

Meanwhile, Paul got himself a Teriyaki Burger (Php. 98) which he enjoyed very much as well. We ordered the Master Fries (Php. 109) to share which is a platter of thick-cut fries topped with their signature beef sauce and cheese. Aside from this, the fries are served with minced onions and ketsup on the side. It reminds me of a Sloppy Joe sandwich minus the bread and the hotdog.

A meal, no matter how filling it may be, will never be complete without dessert. I love Sango's Strawberry Cornflakes Shake which unfortunately was not available last night. Shucks... It's actually a cup of vanilla soft serve ice cream topped with sweet strawberry jam with real strawberries too!

I hope Sango! will continue to branch out and spread the good japanese burger news!

Sango! The Burger Master is located at the Ground Floor of the Pearl Drive Plaza, Pearl Drive St., Ortigas Center. They also have a branch in Makati and in Alabang. You may call them at 636-1991 for deliveries.
