THE ULTIMATE LIST: Our 3 Best Tasting Burgers And Hotdogs In The Metro

The Burger Top 3

If like most people nowadays, you’re counting calories and making cheat days count, you’ll want to go straight to these burger joints around Metro Manila for your bite of something truly worth it.

1. Raging Bull Burgers

Just its location alone boasts a premium goodness that you don’t just get anywhere. Raging Bull Burgers sits along the side of Shangri-La at the Fort and has some pretty awesome burgers, specifically this Mighty Beast.

Mighty Beast (P275)

Inside the Mighty Beast is 1/3 pound Angus beef patty, griddle maple bacon, aged cheddar, spicy beer mustard, lettuce, tomato, and dill pickle. Make sure to open wide to get a bite of all the elements that make this burger oh-so-good.

Snack Shack

If you’re looking for the most bang-for-the-buck burger without cheapening the experience, head over to Snack Shack and you won’t be disappointed.

Quarter pounder with chili con carne (P120)

They have a pretty straightforward menu with only two basic burgers (quarter pounder or half pounder) which you can dress with all kinds of cheap but good add-ons such as chili con carne, bacon, cheese sauce, BBQ sauce, garlic sauce, and jalapeño. For just P30 more, you get a small serving of fries too!

La Creperie


Yeah, you read that correctly. Even though it’s obviously a crepe place, this French café offers so much more—like a good burger.

Le Hamburger (P395)

Don’t snub Le Hamburger because it boasts a hefty serving of Angus and Brazilian beef patty with lettuce, onion, tomato, pickled cornichon, and potato wedges on the side. While it may offer additional fancy add-ons like caramelized onion, Gorgonzola cheese or mixed mushrooms, this one is actually quite tasty off the bat.


The Hotdog Top 3

Burger not your thing? No problem! We also took the liberty of checking out some of the tastiest hotdog digs around town and found out which ones are top notch.

 Lazy Bastard

Located in one of the side roads just off Jupiter Street in Makati, Lazy Bastard is a place you would want to seek out, not just for its swanky speakeasy behind an old rustic door, but because they have the best hotdog.

Honey Parmesan Dog (P240)

The Honey Parmesan Dog packs the best flavor combination known to humans—sweet and salty. But an unexpected taste joins the mix in the form of arugula. The bitterness of the arugula cuts through the sweetness just right.

Warning: You might go for seconds.

Nathan’s Famous


















This native New Yorker has found its way to the Philippines’ concrete jungle in the form of its iconic hotdog—and Filipinos have embraced it. Aside from its food truck that makes the rounds in popular malls in the city, its new branch in Vertis North has a nice ambience too.

Jalapeño Cheese Dog (P230)

Order the bestselling Jalapeño Cheese Dog for a cheesy treat you won’t get elsewhere. You won’t find any scrimping where these dogs are concerned. Just look at those toppings!

Mr. Franks

If you’re an avid moviegoer, chances are you’ve seen Mr. Franks everywhere and probably munched on several of their tasty offerings. They’re not your average movie food stall. They have nachos, corndogs, even fishballs! But if you’re craving for a meaty snack to take inside the cinema, try the Jersey.

            Jersey (P195)

The Jersey is an Italian sausage topped with onion, tomatoes, jalapeño, bacon, and cheesy mozzarella goodness. Just be careful when you eat this in the theater because you might just find the stranger beside you creepily staring at your hotdog.
