Foodtripping: Burgasm at Zark's Burgers-BF Homes

My hubby is a sucker for burgers. He likes to try and eat anything that is ground beef aka beef patty in a sturdy but light burger bun. He won't mind if it's seasoned with whatever or just plain beef patty, as long as it resembles a burger, he would eat it. I, on the other hand, am not really into burgers. Yes, I like them. I sometimes crave for it but not with such intensity as his.

Zark's Burgers is a different story though.

I begged and begged the hubby to take me there. Since Taft Ave (or Manila, in general) is not his most favorite place on Earth, he used delaying tactics on me. Since I don't own the steering wheel of our car, I didn't have much of a choice but to pout - and POUT I did. That was before Zark's decided to open a branch a little further down south.

I almost sang "Hallelujah!" when I heard they opened a branch in BF (that's BF Homes Paranaque, Metro Manila) You see, BF Homes is accessible via Alabang, pretty much making it very much accessible to me! So much for your delaying tactics, hubby! hah!

Anyway, it took us some more weeks to finally visit Zark's-BF homes. I felt really giddy when we finally got there - thanks to hubby's GPS-enabled phone. lol :D


The menu :)
Fear not, Zark's burgers are reasonably priced. Scroll further down to see what I mean.


The Jawbreaker 250Php
The Jawbreaker is an all beef triple cheeseburger topped with a slice of spam and strips of bacon smothered in cheese sauce. I tell you this, Zark's doesn't skimp on portions. This is HUGE. You don't get this huge for a 250Php price tag!

American All Star 120Php
I got the tamer American All Star just because I thought big baby R didn't want burgers for dinner (she said so) but apparently Zark's was just so hard to resist that she ate half of my burger in 5 minutes tops! -.- American All Star is just your classic bacon cheeseburger - just the way I like it :)

His and hers ;)
Cheese Fries 70Php
Cheese Fries is *love*! Just french fries, cheese and chopped bacon. This is baby boy C's favorite :)

..and now, the star of the night..

Deep Fried Snickers 120Php
Gahhhh!! This is heaven sent! deep fried Snickers chocolate bar with a scoop of ice cream is my kind of dessert. I swear I'm going to order this just for myself (read: for MYSELF only. read again:  NOSHARE) next time. They also deep-fry Mars for the same price but I like Snickers more because of the nuts in it :)

Zark's Burgers - BF Homes
If you hate the crowd, better visit during off-peak hours. We visited around 8pm on a  Saturday and the place was still packed. I wouldn't recommend this for a date with someone you are trying to impress but this comes highly recommended for foodies who won't mind waiting for a table and getting greasy fingers while eating just to experience the awesomeness of their burgers ;)

Shawarma place in front of Zark's Burgers
Hmm.. I'm eyeing this place too, this shawarma place. lol ;) looks authentic. hmm..

#seeyoutomorrowZark's!kisses! :)

Looking at that burger makes me drool.

Diet will be on next year's list. :)

Jessica Cassidy said...

Gil Camporazo | RandomThoughts! said...

Burgasm! What a term! Foods when taken appropriately or moderately as what our body needs are good, but otherwise or to the excess are not good! Me, I'm very careful in eating burgers. Anyway what your hubby's best burger trip support him, but it should be limited. Sorry for the unsolicited advice.

I am gie said...

no worries, hun :) we don't eat burgers everyday and like I said, burgers are not really my thing but my husband's so as a very obedient wife, I support him whenever I can. lol :) We pretty much maintain a healthy lifestyle but as foodies, there is an urge to try out places and be able to share them through this blog so we just do what we gotta do ;) don't worry, we don't eat that much, only what our bodies/blood pressures would allow. Thanks for visiting! :)

Lizzie said...

OMG! What a big stack burger! For sure I can't eat up one order. Lol.

sarah said...

As long as you do it in moderation and you find time to exercise it is okay !

zoan said...

WOW! UBER WOW! and sobrang laki ng burger na yan. infairness mura lang sya:)

I don't eat any burger if I can help it. And even before I became a healthy eater, I hardly chose a burger over a healthy meal. I've tried it all (Brothers, Burger King, New York, Boston burger, etc.) but the smell makes me dizzy. I'm sorry but I can't even look at it.

p.s. I wish I'm spared of this primeval captcha.

Miss `Chievous said...

Ooh, bigla akong nagutom. I wanna try this. Ang tagal ko na rin na di naka pag dine out. Tsk.

shadz said...

Yay, nice. Now there is one more reason to explore the south. Tho I'm not really into burgers, I could look for Zark's dahil sa deep-fried Snickers na yan. Hahaha. *snickers*

verna said...

Now I'm debating if I should or not bring my dad here. My dad, without a doubt, would love this. But this might just be too sinful for him. Anyways, thanks for this. I've never been to Zark's before. After seeing this, and not to mention drool, I need to try Zark's. :)

Btw, I'm visiting late for BC Bloggers. I hope you could drop by my page some time. :)

Jonalyn Quita said...

Im overwhelmed looking at the first burger. But it's good to try. As well as the second one and the FRIES and the fried snickers, GOT TO TRY THAT! Want to try them all hehe :D hope they'll have somewhere here in the south.

Gaylee said...

Am just a small town girl, my first time to hear Zark's Burgers actually. :( But surely would love to try its burgers when I go to Manila. :)

Lalah said...

My husband is going to love those burgers... Kaso I don't think we have this in Cebu

MommyLES said...
