Win A Supply of Burger from Teddy’s Big Burgers on It’s Opening Day!

August 21, 2014

Aloha! We got a taste of Hawaii’s best burger last night care of Teddy’s Big Burgers!


Awarded multiple times as the best burger in Hawaii, Teddy’s Bigger Burgers takes pride in its signature 100% cornfed ground chuck made-to-order burgers which is hand-pattied daily and charboiled to order! We got to meet the men behind this new “big burger” craze – Ted Tsakiris and Rich Stula who started the business because of their love for good burger (they couldn’t find in any quick service restaurants!). They brought the BIG burgers and fun crew from Hawaii to Manila, and some good milkshakes too!

Philippines is the second international location of Teddy’s Big Burgers (following Japan). It’s first store opened on April 15, 1998. They now have 11 stores in Hawaii, Washington, Iowa and soon on California and Texas.

I know you are silently praying for me to stop talking and lay the burgers.. but wait, big surprise first, to celebrate Teddy’s Big Burgers opening in the Philippines, they are treating 100 customers on its opening day!

Here’s during a little introduction from the team. They are so fun and cool, you see them here in front, but they also do help in the kitchen!
Operations Manager welcomed us to the real Teddy’s Big Burgers experience!

I love the ambiance of the store. You would see surf boards, flashy marquees and just the usual diner resto vibe. Add a fun crew who does table visits and speaks good English, it makes you feel like dining in a burger joint somewhere near the beach, or at least not in the Philippines (hmm.. I smell Hawaii..!).

 Let’s check the Menu..

Teddy’s Big Burgers Menu
At Teddy’s, they have special burgers that you can order.. very much like the same ones that the other burger joints are offering (but then, they say their secret is the patty!)
Or, you can make your own with the bestsellers – Waikiki Burger, Hawaiian Style, Cajun Burger, or Kailua Burger. I felt kind of confused with the MYO burger menu, because I thought you can pick from the different toppings and fillings to create your own. Basically, you can just choose from those 4 burgers and add toppings.
I had Waikiki Burger (as suggested) and added a Pineapple Slice to give it an Hawaiian touch.
You can add additional to make it a combo (with fries and drinks).
You can choose from two flavors of Fries – Garlic or Spicy
Kindly translate! 😉

The shakes are highly recommended!
They say patties are prepared and charboiled per order.. so it might take a while for them to serve each order. You can request how you want your burger done (medium rare, medium well, or well done) – but by default, they serve it medium well.
Here’s #Kumagcow’s Cajun Burger which was gone in 3 minutes!
Here’s my Waikiki Burger which was served with generous serving of fries!
I have never had a spicy fries before, so this one is a revelation.
Check out the layers of toppings..
It does need a BIG bite!
The milkshake is thick and creamy as expected. I recommend the Peanut Butter!
It tastes like Snickers chocolate! Yum!

How do I love the Teddy’s Big Burgers?
I love the combination of spud (hash brown), cheddar cheese, bacon, burger patty and pineapple (add-on) in teriyaki sauce. The flavors are bursting, I missed tasting the burger patty – just the burger patty. But one thing is for sure, it is not oily, and it is BIG and FILLING! I might go back to try the regular burgers. I was expecting for a bigger serving of cola too (just like how big they serve it in Northern American countries – our biggest is their smallest!). I find the serving a little too small for the BIG Burger. 🙂
Wondering how much you need for a date?
The 5oz Original Teddy’s Burger is at Php 265, and the smallest milkshake is at Php120
Bring Php 1,000 for a safe fun date budget.
