Mall Trippin’ feat. Lelai Part 2: Wham! Burgers Pack a Punch

I’m talking about “Wham!”, a small burger shop located at the 3rd floor of SM Marikina. It’s just a teeny, tiny stall in the corner of the mall, but looks can be quite deceiving.

This tiny shop offers some of the biggest burgers ever served to Filipino food lovers. Our bill reached around 350 pesos (for 2 people), but boy, it was worth every frickin’ cent.

This is pretty much our order… 2 cheeseburgers, a side of bacon (huh?), one of those crisscross fries and iced tea (my stomach gets upset when I drink soda ~_~).

One thing I love about the Wham! burgers is that they’re flame-grilled. Meaning some of the flavor gets retained in the meat of the patty, unlike frying. Unfortunately, being a chubby person that I am, the side of bacon is just, well, over-kill. It’s already a burger… why do you need to have a side of bacon as well? Oh well… I guess some people just want to add an additional flair to their food, kinda like my sister. XD

I just wish that there would be more stalls of Wham! in other malls… so I can give myself a little reward once in while… XD

Of Filipino Fastfoods

Okay, normally I wouldn’t be mad about things concerning food, (unless you shove a plate of bitter gourd on my face), but this made me pretty mad today.

My sis and I met at a local mall, and her immediate invitation was “I’m hungry”. Naturally, being food lovers that we are, we immediately embarked on a quest to find a decent place to eat without breaking my sister’s wallet. (Man, I love my sister’s salary XD).

Anyway, my sister is picky (and I mean REALLY picky) and she was hankering for some spaghetti. She’s said that maybe she’s pregnant and her “baby” was hungry for some spaghetti, but I don’t know, I still say it’s her tummy that wants it.

So we settled on a restaurant that’s famous for their chicken, and I reserved a seat for us. When she came back, she had a bill worth 300 hundred pesos, and a plate of what looks like a piece of pan-de-sal with chicken on it and some fries for me. My reaction?

O_o

I was so mad! My sister paid almost a hundred pesos (for my meal, not including hers) for a burger that looks like I could finish it in two bites? I’m not a glutton, but the burger in front of me looks like it won’t even reach my esophagus or something.

I took a picture of my meal with a hundred peso bill I borrowed from my sister for comparison:

See that? My burger is not even the half of the bill!

*for my foreign readers, a peso bill is pretty much the same size as a dollar bill*

Seriously, I envy the other countries who have thrice the size of this burger. My sister said it’s because of the recession. I say it’s b*******. If the recession is the other fastfoods’ excuse for minimizing their food, then I’d rather eat my brother’s chili-infested concoction, even if it means getting gas from all that chili, or ruining my stomach.

If the recession is really affecting the sales of fastfood restaurants, I don’t think they should resort to stupid tactics such as these. You still want to sell your food without your sales being affected? Then price your meals in accordance to their size. I’m sure the consumers would greatly appreciate the fact that they can still eat their favorite meals without busting a hole in their wallet. I know I would.

It seems like all I’m paying for in restaurants like these is their name. It’s annoying. What’s up with the name anyway? If it’s food then the name shouldn’t be important right? It’s like buying a pair of jeans for 5,000 pesos or a brassiere for 4,000. What? Are you telling me that my bra costs like that because it’s 2,000 per breast? Geeze. >_< Meanwhile, after experiencing this, I think I’d rather rush home after work and eat there than eating out. My mom’s cooking of beef-and-mushroom asparagus would be more welcome to my tummy than a meal where the sandwich can’t even reach my stomach.
