Celebrate your love for huge burgers by pairing them with equally awesome beers! Here are my top burger and beer pairings from the hippest dining places in Forbes Town Center, BGC.

Last May 28, we celebrated International Burger Day in true foodie fashion: by downing one heavyweight burger after another with a cold can of beer. Prior to our little food crawl, we didn’t even know that Forbes Town Center in Bonifacio Global City was home to various restaurants serving the best burgers in town. It was our friends from Megaworld Lifestyle Malls that walked us through the restaurants at FTC, and with the help of their restaurant partners, initiated us in the art of burger and beer pairing. We’ve done this before at The Perfect Pint’s The Perfect Match (with food and beer pairing), but this was our first time to match burgers with beers. Enjoying thick and juicy patties in between buns with cold beer definitely makes sense to me!

How many ways can you savor your burgers and beers at the Forbes Town Center? Let us count the ways:

Umami Teriyaki Burger and Asahi Beer at UCC Park Cafe (Php 538)

1. Umami Teriyaki Burger and Asahi Beer at UCC Park Cafe (Php 538) – If you’ve always been partial to Japanese food, then you’ll enjoy the Umami Teriyaki Burger from UCC Park Cafe. What makes this #1 on my list is the thick and juicy patty topped with cucumber, tomato, lettuce, and a drizzle of mayo and teriyaki sauce. The Umami Teriyaki Burger perfectly captures the flavor of takoyaki and teriyaki with their inventive mix of ingredients. What better way to feast on this burger than with an ice cold can of Asahi, the most popular dry beer in Japan?

Old Fashioned Burger with Bacon Jam and Stella Artois Draft Beer at Reserve Gastro Tavern (Php 730)

2. Old Fashioned Burger with Bacon Jam and Stella Artois Draft Beer at Reserve Gastro Tavern (Php 730) – Aside from the gigantic one-third patty served with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions, what makes the Old Fashioned Burger crave-worthy is the home-made bacon jam that is served with it. The bacon jam alone is a winning discovery. Imagine the possibilities of incorporating the flavor of bacon on any food item that you want! However, I don’t think they’re selling their prized bacon jams yet. At least you can savor the flavor by grabbing Reserve’s Old Fashion Burger. You’ll enjoy this even more with big gulps of Stella Artois Draft Beer – one of my faves!

Angus Burger and Sapporo Beer at L’Entrecote (Php 595)

3. Angus Burger and Sapporo Beer at L’Entrecote (Php 595) – Made with pure angus beef and caramelized to perfection, this humongous burger will haunt your taste buds. The tender angus beef oozes with juiciness (and not grease!) with every bite, which makes for a satisfying dining experience. The fries has a distinct flavor to it since it has been spiced up with truffle oil. Finally, a glug from the Sapporo Beer puts the final touch to this delicious meal.

Hornets Burger and Big Ass Rose Beer at Rue Bourbon (Php 510)

4. Hornets Burger and Big Ass Rose Beer at Rue Bourbon (Php 510) – I’ve had the chance to dine at Rue Bourbon Eastwood before, but wasn’t able to grab a bite of their Hornets Burger. So far, the burgers listed above have all featured burgers with beef patties, so here’s one for the chicken lovers. This light-tasting burger with a generous serving of breaded chicken thigh will surely fit your healthy diet. Topped with lettuce, honey mustard, cheese, and large slices of breaded onion rings, the Hornets Burger provides a satisfying chicken fix that’s packed with premium quality ingredients. What’s more, this burger goes well with Rue Bourbon’s Rose Beer, served in their famed Big Ass mug. If you’ve never tried the Rose Beer before, swing by FTC and find out what it tastes like for yourself! Hint: It really tastes like roses. To this day, I don’t know how they were able to craft their rose beer.

Bugsy’s Traditional American Burger and Brew Kettle at Bugsy’s Sports Bar (Php 355)

5. Bugsy’s Traditional American Burger and Brew Kettle at Bugsy’s Sports Bar (Php 355) – What makes the Bugsy’s Traditional American Burger appealing is not only its traditional American burger make, but its size that makes it a man’s burger (face it, ladies! Men can eat a cow with their usual appetites). The smooth-tasting Brew Kettle made me go for seconds. It’s so light, you can hardly feel it down your throat, which makes it perfect for girls who are not big fans of thickly-flavored beers.

Burgers and Brewskies’ Call the Nurse and Blue Moon Beer

Other noteworthy discoveries: Burgers and Brewskies’ Call the Nurse and Blue Moon Beer, Big Bad Wolf’s Bacon Cheese Burger and Mr. Wolf Brown Ale (Php 700), The Bowery’s House Burger and the classic San Miguel Pale Pilsen (Php 580), the Distillery’s Triple Burger and Paulaner Dunkel (Php 630), and The Farm’s Organic Farmers Burger and Hoegaarden (Php 590).

Despite this extensive list of burgers and beer pairings that can be found at FTC’s roster of popular dining and drinking places, I’m positive that there are more pairings to be discovered! But for those new to burger and beer pairing, the ones listed above pretty much covers which ones are highly recommended. Drop by Forbes Town Center sometime and find your perfect B&B pair!-HANA
