Food Trip: BRGR Project Taft

There’s a new baby! No, not a real one – – not a human one that is. BRGR Project of Maginhawa Street, Quezon City has a new baby, and it’s located in Manila!


BRGR Project of Quezon City celebrated the birth of its first franchise in the Grand Towers, Vito Cruz, Manila. Bloggers, writers, and photographers were invited to its press launch last September 2012.


Going to Manila was an adventure in itself. I never knew that Vitto Cruz was same as P. Ocampo Street. Talk about renaming streets – – old names and new names, hence poor old QC girl me drove along EDSA, turned right at Taft, and realized that I should have turned left somewhere when I was in front of the Philippine General Hospital.


U turn here. U turn there. U turn everywhere for an hour. Another road adventure continued.


After one hour of u-turning at all possible u-turn slots, after an hour of enjoying my road adventure, my gastronomic adventure would soon start at the Grand Towers. It finally started when I realized that Vitto Cruz was same as P. Ocampo street.


Fast forward to the gastro adventure.


BRGR Project Taft also exuded the same cozy comfortable atmosphere of BRGR Project Maginhawa.
