Living above Robinsons Place, I’ve been eating my way through the mall.  As far as I know, nobody has ever done anything like this, my unique contribution to the city’s food/blog scene.


A quiet Saturday night, I felt like watching a movie.  I decided on The Purge: Anarchy.  It was okayish.

Taters is an American-style snack shop chain.  Founded in the Philippines.  Over 20 branches throughout Metro Manila, most located in malls next to cinemas.  Offers varieties of popcorn, beverages, hotdogs, burgers, all cooked/re-heated on the premises.

The meal was miss and hit.  The Churkey Burger was crap.  The patty seemed to be comprised predominantly of extender, mushy, barely any discernible trace of either chicken or turkey – I’m assuming, on the basis of absolutely nothing, that “churkey” is a portmanteau of “chicken” + “turkey.”  The bun was too big.  I ordered the quarter pound version not because I wanted big but rather because it would come with “fresh vegetables,” which turned out to be a sliver of tomato and single leaf of lettuce. The burger came laced with a human hair.  However, the fries were quite good, thick and crispy.  Nevertheless, I’ll stick with the popcorn for future shows.
