A Taste of Italy inthe Heart of Mandaluyong City

Leave a comment Standard

I always love Italian food since I was a child.  I  always have spaghetti in every birthday celebration and in my shopping and mall sessions, I always go for pizza.  The explanation to this is–probably in my past life, I was born Italian 🙂  I know that there are already many restaurants that offer Italian cuisine, but I am already sick and tired of the same brand and taste.  I thought of trying something different and I was lucky to have an opportunity to taste an authentic Italian food @ BURP RESTAURANT.   The restaurant is located in Uptown Pioneer (near Legend Villas) in Mandaluyong City.

The place looks small but it can accommodate up to 40 people inside and 12 more pax outside.  It is very cozy when you enter– you will feel at home.  In fact, while waiting for your food, you can read their books in their mini reading nook, watch TV or simply have a casual chitchat with your relatives/friends.  The staff are also very polite and friendly.

Upon entering, you will be greeted by one of their staff and will be given a menu for your orders.  The glasses and refreshments will be prepared as well while waiting for the meals.

They have ala carte food in the menu but they also have exciting promos ideal for those who will come in groups.

The group meals (good for 3 people) can be availed for only P410 with a choice of fish or chicken and 1 pasta in the list.  For this, we have tried both fish and chicken and two of their pasta meals.

THEIR FOOD:

Fried Mozarella Sticks

This is one of my favorites @ Burp because I loved the cheesy taste.   I knew that it’s not yet the main course so I controlled myself in eating all of the mozarella sticks, hehehe!  Oh, well, it was served with the Pomodoro sauce that made it even more yummy!

Chicken is a must in all my press trips that’s why I am very particular with it.  It’s not a shame because their chicken is crispy and I liked their honey mustard dip as well.   I was kinda guilty because I ate the last piece that was supposed to be eaten by our youngest child.  I didn’t know that he only liked chicken that time.

I’m not much into seafood but my family especially my father and hubby loved the breaded fish served with pesto mayo.

Of course, our visit at BURP won’t be complete without tasting their pasta.  I prefer the Creamy Mushroom Pasta but I also liked Spaghetti  Pomodoro.

Spaghetti Pomodoro

The kids didn’t like the Spaghetti because they’re used the usual sweet Filipino style spaghetti that we cook at home.  What they have at BURP Restaurant is an authentic Italian spaghetti.  Spaghetti Pomodoro is  actually one of their bestsellers.   Its main ingredients are:  spaghetti, onion, garlic, butter, tomato, basil and pomodoro.

Cremy Mushroom Pasta

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

This is my favorite!  Even the kids love the creamy taste of the pasta.  The main ingredients are: penne, shitake, button mushrooms, garlic, bechamel and cream.  One plate (to share) isn’t enough for a family of 6 members because I’m sure they would be requesting for another plate.

DESSERTS:

Burp Restaurant has been in the food business since 2013 and for 5 years, they have served customers who craved for authentic Italian food.   The restaurant is managed by Ms. Ara, who worked as a manager for Italliani’s for 5 years.  She is currently helped by her siblings, Dan and Ms. Sofia, who accommodated us during our visit.

Too bad, I wasn’t able to taste the pizza and their coffee– probably next time 🙂

For Italian food lovers, BURP Restaurant is open from Sundays to Saturdays from 7:30am to 10:30pm.

Wait, do you think that their food is only available at the restaurant?  It’s good news because they also have catering services for different occasions or events.  For catering, the food isn’t limited to Italian cuisine as you can customize your own list.  You can avail their catering services for as little as P15k for 20 to 30 pax.
