TROPICAL HUT : still one of Manila's Best BURGERS!!!
that used to be at the corner of Ortigas and EDSA,
circa February 1986:
During the Dark Ages,
before Jollibee, before McDonald's,
before Burger Machine, before Wendy's,
before Brothers, Hotshots, & Burger Avenue,
there was only one burger chain:
I guess the owners earned so much money
during the EDSA Revolution, they retired
and stopped their nationwide expansion.
because their absurdly tasty burgers
are still among the best in MetroManila,
perfectly spiced for the Pinoy's tastebuds,
(JB's "langhap sarap" recipe was based on the TH's)
their classic line-up has stood the test of time,
and although you have to make an extra effort
to find a Tropical Hut in the Metro,
burgers like the Rancho Ranchero truly make it worth your while!!!
