After a fun-filled Saturday (bowling + movie), our family was hungry and it was dinner time. We entered the nearest restaurant from the cinema which was Burgoo. On top of our tables were crayons and our platemat was paper where we can draw, scribble or do anything we want while waiting for our orders to arrive. I liked this idea because our orders took some time to arrive (around 15 minutes).
Burgoo Seafood Jambalaya – PHP 595
A combination of mussels, calamari, and shrimps with ham, chorizo, green peas, green bell pepper, and white onions with long grain rice with Cajun spices.
I initially thought this was paella but they’re different (although similar). It had a strong distinct flavor (spicy but not hot) which you can eat on its own.
Burgoo Shrimp and Ribs Platter – PHP 995
Everything I would eat ribs, I would imagine the juicy, tender and falls-off-the-bone (or even just easy to remove from the bone) feeling. Their ribs failed on the third one. They have already chopped it for you so we can simply pick up a bone and start nibbling on it. It had a bit of fat here and there but you wouldn’t notice it especially if pour some steak sauce on it. The shrimps were just so-so but I enjoyed the ribs
Burgoo Seafood Combo – PHP 595
Fried shrimps, calamari and creme dory in one platter with two dips for you to choose from. The shrimps were delicious while the creme dory and calamari was normal.
Burgoo Country Chicken – PHP 475
Seasoned chicken, deep-fried to golden.
I think this was over-fried as it wasn’t juicy anymore. Aside from that, their serving of chicken was small. I expected more from it :(
We had our stomachs filled after our Burgoo dinner. However, since it didn’t have that “wow very delicious” feeling, I would say that we ate an expensive dinner.
Till next time,
