What happened to my Burger Culture and Moo Shake experience in Tomas Morato plus GC giveaway

Update: This establishment is now closed.

Note: No burgers were harmed in the making of this post.
They were only eaten in very careful and strategic portions.

Being the Quezon City baby that I am, I can easily spot a new joint without my eyes squinting (because I'm using my nose, that's why). Somehow, each new establishment excites me because it's either very good, very bad, or just in between both.

But it's been awhile since I passed by along Tomas Morato going to ABS-CBN, since I have been laying low on the alcohol, the bar scene, and eating late at night. However, it's not a valid reason for me not to try this new burger joint called Burger Culture, which is in between PRIME Bar and Imperial Suites. Beside Burger Culture is Moo Shake, which is a milkshake, waffle and candy bar rolled into one cute little shop.

If you are looking from outside, you wouldn't know that Burger Culture and Moo Shake are actually connected to each other. Only a glass panel acts as a division between these two different themed joints, each one which does not really occupy the biggest of spaces, but is still comfortable all the same. Here is a quick peek of Burger Culture from the inside:

From the Moo Shake side, I got really fascinated with this 'milkshake machine housing', with matching beep beep sounds! I'm having mixed emotions during that time, because it was feeling like a kid, feeling like I was in another planet, or I'm standing next to a milkshake time bomb.

I'm not really a fan of sweets and candies, but please don't arrest me if I 'accidentally turn' these knobs just to get 'em!

Since Burger Culture is a customized burger joint, you are given a checklist with cute clipboards paired up with colorful pencils. There's no limit to how you can make your own burger.

Sorry for being shallow, but I can't help but smile over these cute condiment bottles. I'm sensing that I'm in for something BIG.

Our orders at Burger Culture took about 15 minutes before they arrived one by one, starting off with my order, which is an Angus Beef Burger in a Kaiser Bun, with swiss cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, grilled onion and bacon with Truffle Cheese Fries on the side plus garlic aioli. I wasn't feeling that experimental on that day so I preferred this one.

My Angus Beef Burger
JV, who was feeling a bit healthy (yeah, a bit) that time, opted for a double patty of Burger Culture's Bacon Beef Lettuce Wrap with all the things he checked and did not ask about. He got the Chili Cheese Fries as a siding.

Low Carb Bacon Beef Burger
I also ordered The Works at Burger Culture which is actually one of their bestsellers, filled with a Ribeye Burger with lettuce, tomato, onion, swiss cheese, strips of bacon and mushrooms with garlic aioli sauce in a kaiser bun. It's not really different with my custom burger except for the type of patty and the mushrooms. This one only has standard fries on the side.

Behold...also MY burger...The Works
Burger Culture's burger are huge, and each bite was a struggle as the tip of my nose actually touches the top part of my burger with every bite. There's no sexy bites now...just monstrous big guy bites. I was just too bummed about eating it with a fork and knife (which is definitely a no-no for me when eating a burger).

He may have a double patty, but I have a TWO burgers!
Cool thing --- burger handles!! No, I'm not talking about the one you would notice hanging on the sides of my waist. Their burger handles are perfect for making burger-eating a while lot easier. Newsflash: no tomatoes slipped today! But I did get those juicy drippings sliding between my fingers though.

My only issue, though, was that their fries are just like the ones that you get from other fastfood joints and nearby supermarkets. Not really a big deal, actually, but if they can get wedges, then that would be something I can look forward to.

I loved how the ingredients were fresh, plus I did appreciate the kaiser bun - soft and not chewy, but still has the capacity to hold everything together. The rib eye was the tastiest for me compared to the angus burger patty. I did, however, loved the angus burger's texture more than the rib eye.

And what the...bacon beef? For real? Burger Culture does it by mixing rib eye with bacon bits, which resulted to an infusion of flavor and more flavor. Pretty neat, right? I tried eating a piece, but I think I'd appreciate it even more if I ordered another Bacon Burger...for myself....again. :))

And finally, what is a good burger without a good milkshake? It's like being Jughead all over again (kids, if you don't know Jughead, ask Google hehehe) To go with our burgers, we tried the Strawberry Milkshake and the Twix Coffee Milkshake at Moo Shake.

Both milkshakes are available in 16 oz. sizes so to buy them for takeaway is never a hassle. The verdict? I like it! It's actually my first time to try a milkshake made with frozen yogurt...yes! Frozen yogurt! It's thicker, healthier and yummier. My tummy thanked me real good with this milkshake. Would love to try their chocolate milkshake soon!

Burger Culture and Moo Shake is open from 11:00am to 12:00mn on Mondays to Thursdays, and up to 1:00am on Fridays to Sundays. I'm sure that party goers from nearby bars are thankful for this little piece of burger and milkshake heaven, since this is great place to have your before or even after party burger fix.
