Teddy’s Bigger Burgers lands in Manila!
As previously announced, Teddy’s Bigger Burgers from Hawaii has opened in Manila…in Greenbelt 3, to be exact. There were long lines for the free burgers and lots of Instagram photos. I was excited to meet the founders – Rich Stula (right) and Teddy’s himself, Ted Tsakiris – a big, muscular man..woohoo!
First impressions: the burgers are awesome! I think it’s in the quality of the beef – corn-fed chuck or something. You really get to appreciate the meat without all the frills and fancy toppings. Here was the 9 oz. Monster Double with onions and cheese as I saw in the posters. Oh my…food coma indeed!
I appreciate Teddy’s because they offer a Lettuce Wrap option for their burgers, instead of just wheat or potato bun. Less sinful calories that way, LOL.I love their flavorful onion rings and super-thick milkshakes too!
It was my first time to slather peanut butter on a burger … okay pala There are a number of choices for the toppings like bacon, bleu cheese, hash browns and avocado.
The cheapest burger, Teddy’s Original 5 oz. , is priced at P265. This combo cheeseburger meal, with sides and drink, was P399. It’s usually fries but they ran out that night so we got a free upgrade to tater tots. The pricing can compete with other gourmet burgers around but it was really so filling and those who don’t eat a lot can share an order.

Mahalo Teddy’s! It was just like going to Hawaii 😉
