It’s true! TEDDY’S BIGGER BURGERS is now in the Philippines!!!
The country’s burger scene just got a whole lot bigger with the arrival of Teddy’s Bigger Burgers. Founded by Hawaii-based Ted Tsakiris and Rich Stula, both burger lovers, Teddy’s Bugger Burgers is opening its doors to the Philippine market on August 23. (Oo, bukas na ‘yun!!!) This debut branch marks the first international franchise of the SumoBurger Global Inc., whose restaurants include Sumo Sam and Akira, among others. The group is owned by the trio of actor-businessman Marvin Agustin, Raymund Magdaluyo and Ricky Laudico.
Filipino burger enthusiasts can now get a bite of Teddy’s Originals — a burger made of 100% US ground chuck patty topped with the restaurant’s famous Super Sauce.
Other menu items of note from the global brand include the “more adventurous” Volcano Burger…
the Blue Cheese Bacon Burger..
and the traditional Hawaiian Style, which has grilled pineapple with teriyaki sauce.
Customers can also make their own burger creation by adding their choice of toppings from the menu of bacon, avocado, jalapenos, onion rings, peanut butter, pastrami, among others.
But what makes Teddy’s Bigger Burgers so special?
The cornerstone of any great burger is the patty, and Teddy’s stands by its pure meat patties.
Our patty is made from 100% corn-fed U.S. Black Angus ground chuck, shipped regularly from the US from the same supplier of Teddy’s Hawaii, with no binders or fillers. All patties are hand-pattied daily, with the special seasoning of Ted and Rich, and always charbroiled to order.
The patties have zero preservatives and are not injected with flavors. And because the patty is charbroiled, extra fat drips down instead of the patty swimming in grease.
Burger sizes also set Teddy’s apart, with “Big,” “Bigger,” and “Biggest” patties.
Size definitely matters at Teddy’s. Our burgers are bigger than the average burger. We start at 5 oz (Big) – that’s already a 1/3 pounder – and go on to 7 oz (Bigger) and 9 oz (Biggest) for our Original patties, and our Monster Doubles (double patty sandwiches) go up to 10 oz, 14 oz, and 18 oz.
Teddy’s Original Burgers are topped with a signature ‘Special Sauce,’ the burger joint’s own sweet and tangy creation and is basted with a sweet teriyaki sauce – a traditional recipe made from scratch — while the Western Burger is topped with barbecue sauce.
All sandwiches come with crisp lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and onions, but diners have the option to customize their burgers with a variety of toppings, including bacon, blue cheese, jalapeños, onion rings, and pastrami, among others.
Because all burgers are made to order, customers can also opt to reduce or remove seasoning, and use lettuce instead of bread as buns.
The crowning glory of Teddy’s Bigger Burgers is the potato bun, specially made for Teddy’s. Golden in color, the potato buns are soft and delicate in texture, with a slightly sweet note that brings out the savory, smoky flavor of the burger.
SIDES AND MILKSHAKES
To complement the burgers, Teddy’s sides include extra crispy fries and tots with a variety of sauces (cheese and garlic butter – GARLIC BUTTER ANG PAMATAY!!! So sinful, mapapa-confess ka!), and beer-battered onion rings.
Teddy’s is also known for super thick milk shakes, in flavours such as chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, peanut butter, rootbeer, dreamsicle or pineapple. Their shakes are 90% ice cream and 10% milk. Solid!
Teddy’s is set to open in the Philippines on August 23 at the 3rd level, Greenbelt 3, Makati City. To celebrate its Philippine debut, Teddy’s will treat its first 100 customers with free Teddy’s Original Burger (5 oz.) on its August 23 opening day, with the first five in line to receive one year supply of burgers, 6th – 10th customers get a 6-month supply of burgers and customers #11-20 get a 3 month supply!
