Happy year of the bunny, you guys! I have to get my hands on some tikoy before the day ends. Know where I can get some on such a short notice? In the meantime, I’m gonna tell you all about that thing I tried at that place somewhere along that street some time ago. Confused? That was my intention. Read on, kiddos.
I found myself at Bonifacio Global City early in the morning a few Saturdays ago to check out the now famous weekend market called Mercato Centrale. We’ll cover the market in a later post, but for now, I shall regale you all with a story of an unusual burger that I discovered from this magical place.
|Offbeat’s famous Donut Burger (p180)|
Nearly every other booth sold burgers and none of them looked particularly interesting to me until I spied a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts in one of them. I approached their booth to take a closer look and saw a burger with its patty sandwiched between two Krispy Kreme doughnuts instead of regular burger buns. Yep, it was a Krispy Kreme Donut Burger.
I watched in amusement as the guy from the booth prepared one, piling on a thick slab of fried beef patty, bacon, and cheese on top of a doughnut and then topping it off with another doughnut. Although amused, inside I was horrified at all the unhealthiness combined all in one sandwich. I wanted to try it.

And then as I was about to order, the guy behind the booth mentioned that on that day, he had a new item on the menu called the Ensaymada Burger. I don’t think I have to explain what it is (but I shall). Like the Doughnut Burger, the Ensaymada Burger has the same thick burger patty with all the works sandwiched inside a giant ensaymada. I got one and it was awesome.
The meat was juicy and tasty, with just enough bacon and cheese to round up the saltiness and the ensaymada provided a contrasting sweetness which surprisingly went well with the meat.
|Where the weird burgers are|
I asked the guy behind the Offbeat booth how many calories his burgers have. He paused, chuckled and said, “We don’t count.” It’s probably best that you don’t know. That way, you can savor the sweet, juicy, and salty combo of Offbeat’s sinful burgers.
