If you’re looking for a new restaurant that serves good burgers, Pound by Todd English, is a good place to dine. Their menu is quite simple with burgers, fries, pasta and wine.

If you want something different, they have a Secret Burger that you can ask the waiter. The beef patty doesn’t scrimp on the size and isn’t dry. It’s served with crunchy french fries with ketchup.

T.E. Crispy Chicken Burger (Php225) are two sliders made of crispy chicken patty topped with crispy pickled slaw, cilantro aioli and brioche bun.
