Last week, I was one of the bloggers who had the chance to dine at Triple-O’s by White Spot at The Atrium of SM Megamall. It’s the first-ever branch in the Philippines and I was delighted to see that the restaurant is not even open, yet we were there to experience what this burger joint has to offer. Along with the media, it seemed like we were taking part of their dry run, as we lined up and ordered our foods at the counter. It was a fun experience, but the foods served to us are definitely not your dry run quality. Now, it can be told that popular Canadian burger chain Triple-O’s in the Philippines is now open to serve everyone craving for quality food.
It was my first time to learn about Triple-O’s. If you’ve been to Canada, chances are you are familiar with this brand as it is said to be very popular in that country. It was established by founder Nat Bailey in 1928 as the first drive-in restaurant but became an iconic brand because of its burgers. The claim to have the best burgers around is backed by using premium-grade 100% Canadian beef patties, and that says a lot. Food connoisseur apparently agrees that Canadian beef is better than its American counterpart due to the country’s rigorous screening systems on beef.
Burgers are just some of the food offerings at Triple-O’s. Aside from ordering my Monty Mushroom, Strawberry Milkshake and Sweet Potato Fries, I also had my 2-piece Buttermilk Chicken with rice. Yep, it was an opportunity to try both worlds – burger and fried chicken. The chicken is crisp on the outside and really juicy on the inside with a hint of creaminess. It comes with a salsa as dip. After pausing for a while to chat with friends, I started on my burger combo. The burger is huge, with a pickle on top, a Triple-O’s signature way of serving their sandwiches. It has generous grilled mushrooms, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato, Monterey Jack Cheese over 100% fresh Canadian beef.
Don’t forget the milkshake which the counter staff highly recommends. I love milkshake and so I gave in wondering how pleasurable it would be. I was looking around the counter and noticed that there are tubs of ice cream and real strawberries, an indication of how wonderful my strawberry milkshake would be. Now that popular Canadian burger chain Triple-O’s by White Spot is now open, I will definitely go back to try their other burgers. Next on my list is the Bacon Cheddar or the Spicy Ultimate Crunch. It might probably the place to get some work done too as Triple-O’s Megamall looks cozy in it’s casual dining vibe.
