"Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team. Everything is awesome! When we’re living our dream.” Those lines have been stuck in my head ever since I watched The Lego Movie. I still go crazy whenever I hear it and I just have to sing along! And I got crazier when I found out that a Lego themed burger joint opened a few months back, I just have to visit it soon!
Hello, Brick Burger!
The place was packed with families on a rainy Sunday afternoon but we were lucky to score the last vacant table.
We were quickly assisted to our table and were handed menu cards. There are not a lot of dishes to choose from as Brick Burger focused on comfort dishes such as chicken wings, pasta, hotdogs, fries, nachos and of course, burgers. After much thought, we went with Cheesy Mac (PHP210) and Fries (PHP65).
While waiting for our order, I took more photos of the adorable display and realized that they do not have Lego bricks for diners to play with. I guess it is also to avoid the headache of possible theft or having to clean greasy bricks. But I still think that having these colorful toys available for diners to play with is a nice idea and would entice kids to pester their parents to come back for more.
After a short while, the plate of fries was served and it looked sad, really sad. I could easily count the fries with my hands! And it was also a bit too salty.
The Lego-ed cheeseburger was served next and it did look cute and Instagram-worthy. I was a bit iffy with the bun’s bright red color but eventually took a big bite after several snapshots.
The bun was a bit chewy and the buttons (or brick locks) on top were quite hard. The patty was quite good as it was succulent and flavorful. However, I only got to appreciate it when I ate it without the salty mac n cheese and bacon bits. The cheesy macaroni was just too overwhelming and the bacon bits made the whole burger even saltier. I just had a couple of bites and had everything else wrapped.
I ate the leftover burger the following day and surprisingly, it tasted better! I’m not sure if it was because I was expecting it to be worse than before or if I’m getting used to eating leftovers; but I liked the leftover burger more than when it was fresh. Then again, it must be because I skipped the top bun which I accidentally burnt and that bun took out of the cheese hence made the burger less salty.
Overall, Brick Burger offers a refreshing and cute concept but do not expect food that’ll make you go wow. It may be Instagram-worthy but average at best.

2nd review... My friend and I super loved the Correa's Wings! (₱200). The wings remained crispy throughout and I personally liked the recipe, hindi ung usual na wings na more on the sweet and saucy side na na-try ko sa ibang restos. They had the nice bits of chili flakes, and had a lovely crinkly and "bubbly" skin.. Worth the price and the wait.
On my first review I took note of their buns that they were dry. Now they have improved somehow -- the buns were softer and that's better. We ordered the Cheesy Mac (₱210) and the Darth Burger (₱250), as well as fries (₱65). I liked this Cheesy Mac better than my first burger, the Wild Style -- yep, carbs on carbs hehehe. My friend thought that what was inside her Darth Burger (caramelized onions, bacon and of course the thick burger patty) should be partnered with rice instead (yep, she was the same pihikan food buddy I was with at Mad Mark's lol).
Still, it didn't have the shakes yet. Although they were included in the menu, not available pa rin. I hope sooner meron na.
Will try their other wings -- they must be good too! But really the Correa's Wings were the standout to our foodtripping at Brick Burger, I might order this again plus rice haha.
. We had fun there and of course, picture-picture at selfie-selfie din hahaha along with the display of Lego toys.

Whether you are a Lego fan or not I'm sure we have played these iconic toy blocks (or imitations thereof) at some point of our lives. You will be thrilled by this burger joint, arguably the first Lego-themed restaurant in the country.
I discovered Brick Burger on my Facebook feed as I had to go home from Crossing. I also learned that this is one of the newest joints in the Metro. Yes, this was a spur-of-the-moment discovery! So I wasted no time that I stopped at Puregold C. Raymundo, crossed the street and walked some blocks before arriving at Hampton Gardens Arcade, the location of the restaurant. You're going to see not just a "Lego burger" (I mean, the toy version, which is also displayed there), but also eat a real Lego burger!
As I stepped into Brick Burger, needless to say I was lit up, even though I'm not much a fan of Lego, I was still delighted nevertheless by what I saw. It was more like a toy store than a hamburger joint.
The overall design is just right on the money -- from the wall art and decor, to the furniture, even the salt and pepper shakers, down to the burgers themselves. Not to mention the thousands of Lego pieces and figures. Especially if you're a die-hard Lego fan you'll be most likely to act like a kid in a candy store -- or in a toy shop, more precisely. My most favorite is the Volkswagen trailer van (methinks), it was so cute!
I ordered the Wild Style (₱250): spicy burger topped with onion rings, and Sprite (₱45). Too bad their shakes weren't available at that time. Although the burger was spicy in itself, I wanted it spicier so I chose to add hot chili. Hahaha.
The taste of my burger? I think it was okay -- I liked the beef patty (although not as juicy as the other burgers I have tasted), I super liked the onion rings cause they were crunchy, flavorful, and not soggy. And the bright red Lego-shaped bun, I thought it was a bit dry for me -- but that's just my opinion though.
However, the burger was quite pleasing to look at, nakakatuwa yung bun parang ayaw mo pang kainin hahaha. There are other Lego bun colors too, of course, depending on the type of burger. I think I could have ordered the Darth Burger instead for the same price huhuhu (it has lots more filling, and has a black Lego bun -- oh well, first time eh. Next time when I come back there).
Brick Burger is a highly Instagrammable place, every nook and cranny! There were kids who were obviously delighted at this place, and they would say "gusto ko neto" thinking they were in a real toy shop! Hehehe. Next time perhaps I'll bring my nieces there. One extra star for this unique concept and geez... the toys!
