Das Bürgery

leave a comment »

The star of the monthly Weekend Souk, Das Bürgery offers up a variety of hamburgers that are arguably the best in the Bacolod City area. Unlike many food places that don’t always offer 100% beef hamburgers, Das Bürgery is unlike the rest, in that, they put some thought when it comes to something like a hamburger.

Found in the courtyard area of The District at Ayala North Point in Talisay, every month the shopping center opens up as a marketplace of local food and goods, with merchants offering everything from cultural treats, locally-produced apparel, fresh sugar cane juice, and, of course, Das Bürgery sets up a table there.

As mentioned before, what really sets them apart is the use of actual beef in their hamburger patties – in this instance, a good idea to avoid cutting corners. Yes, compared to contemporaries, they are pricier, but that comes with the territory. Alongside a quality bun and a variety of toppings, it’s a monthly treat enjoyed by many.

Unfortunately, (asked the proprietor on several occasions) they do not have a free-standing store.

Das Bürgery only serves burgers. The fries can be purchased from the local Tater’s franchise just around the corner – makes for a very satisfying lunch.

Chicken Ati-Atihan

leave a comment »

On another drive around Negros Occidental, it is always finding a gem on a random roadtrip.

Named for the famous Ati-Atihan festival of Aklan and boasting locations all across the Western Visayas, Chicken Ati-Atihan offers another variety of grilled chicken already so famous on the island of Negros. Throughout the island, various establishments off dishes like Chicken Tayasan, Chicken Inato, and the king of all recipes, Chicken Inasal.

Chicken Ati-Atihan is offered in two varieties, with or without rice, and ordering with rice will definitely save some cash. While other local chicken dishes are grilled or fried, this version is grilled but coated with a delicious sweet sauce and compliments the dish.

The restaurant offers a lot more than Chicken Ati-Atihan, but considering that is the namesake of the establishment, it’s almost necessary, especially if it’s a first visit.

This specific location is located in Kabankalan City, but the restaurant has branches in Aklan, Capiz, Iloilo, Negros Occidental, and Negros Oriental.
