8 Cuts Burger Blends in Greenhills Promenade, San Juan City

"I want mah burgers!!"

That's my stomach growling from time to time. While I'm not really a big fan of meat, there are just those moments when I find myself craving for a good piece of burger. Nothing too fancy but one with a thick cut of juicy beef, nice fluffy bun and just the right condiments to go with it. Over the Christmas break, Paul and I went on a double date with my best friend L and her hubby T. It's just amazing to look back and realize that we actually have been double dating for close to 13 years as T and Paul courted both L and I almost at the same time. It's just so nice that L and I are always in sync in every big milestones in our lives. From dating T and Paul respectively to being their girl friends and later on, marrying them and being their wives. As for L, she's now a hot momma to two beautiful kids, one of which is my super smart godson and someday she'll definitely a godmother to mine too. That's one great friendship story, if I must say so myself.

We were supposed to meet at Cibo but with the holiday rush, the place was packed when L and T got there so we quickly decided to move to 8 Cuts Burger Blend which was inside Greenhills Promenade. I was so happy as I've been wanting to try 8 Cuts for the longest time! Yay!

While L and I are almost always in sync, one thing that sets us apart is our appetite. L has the smallest appetite known to man while I am totally the opposite. Well, I guess, that's why we love eating out as she would nibble here and there while I can eat like there's no tomorrow. So, I wasn't surprised at all when she told her hubby T that she just wants to share while Paul and I shamelessly went ahead and ordered one burger EACH. Not only that, we started our meal with the Loaded Tex Mex Nachos (Php. 345) which was delish! I love how it's piled with sweet mexican beef, tomatoes, sour cream and jalapenos. The menu says that it comes with smoked guacamole but either avocados were out of season of the kitchen staff totally forgot to put that onto our nachos. Oh man! It was good alright but I want my guac, please!

As for our burgers, I went for the Shroom (Php. 295 / Php. 345) which had baby portobello mushrooms, spinach tempura, anchovy dijonnaise and black truffle aioli. I love how the mushrooms gives the burger that extra meatiness and the condiments perfectly complemented the burger. It was simple, light yet totally satisfying to say the least.

Paul went for the Hangover 2.0 (Php. 295 / Php. 345) as it was highly recommended by our server. As soon as his burger was served on the table, we all let out a collective "WOW!" It's a 1/3lb burger patty topped with sugar-glazed corned beef, dijonnaise, fried egg, shoestring potatoes, fried tomatoes, fried sage and horseradish aoili. This is a good breakfast in a bun and Paul was so sweet to share some with me. This is perfect for all meat lovers with the combination of burger patty and corned beef in every bite.

How we wish that each burger order comes with fries or chips at the very least. Over-all though, we had a fantastic time at 8 Cuts Burger Blends and I want to go back real soon!
