Happy 2nd anniversary Burger Geek! Can't believe how 2 years have passed so quickly! And along with their second anniversary, Burger Geek has also launched more menu items like ribs, nachos, a bigger order of their chicken, salad, etc!
For the month of October they had a promo where you can get 50% off any new menu item for every order of their burgers (except the geek and another one I forgot). This really being one of our fave places, we gamely headed over one night. Hubby had his usual Hangover while I had the Class President (shitake mushrooms on the side 128522). Instead of our usual French fries and fried pickles, we tried their new Muchos Nachos! While waiting for our orders, we were also able to catch up with George T and he was able to tell us more about the new menu selections.
The nachos arrived and I immediately noticed how the chips were a bit thicker and tastier than others I've tried. Although it wasn't drowning in cheese, the other toppings like the beef bits, tasty sour cream, corn, fresh tomatoes and olives made it super yummy!
Our burgers arrived and they were perfect as usual! If you like your burgers big, messy, juicy and flavor packed, this is really the place for you! A molito food crawl should be in order, yeah?

If anyone would ask me what my favorite burger place is, it would defo be burger geek. I just love the freshness of the patty, the taste of the patty and how it goes so well with the potato bun and other ingredients. However, I've met a lot of people who don't share the same sentiment - to each his own 128513
It's been a few months since our last visit so I was quite excited. Hubby ordered his fave hangover while I went for the class president, mushrooms on the side. Fries and fried pickles of course. Noticed though that were a lot of trainees? A few were chatting outside (and didn't help us move the parking sign 128529). But anyways food arrived on time and it was as good as we imagined. Juicy, fresh just basically delicious.
Less one star though cos the not writing down the order thing still gets to me. More often than not, there is something missing or wrong with the order. Negligible to a point but I dunno. Like I would request (all the time) for water in larger glasses but they would still serve it in those tiny dentist cups. They've probably gotten this right 50/50. Also when I was served my burger the server said 'here's your cheerleader mam'. Had to do a double take since I would never order a cheerleader (veggie patty 128516). Reconfirmed that it was actually the right burger before eating it.
Food is 5/5 for but service is always a hit or miss.

Burger lovers have to try this relatively new burger joint. They serve legit burger patties in a potato bun. My personal favorite is the Class President -- smashed patty with bacon, shitake mushrooms, onion rings and barbecue sauce. Really, really tasty. I also tried their umami fried chicken that comes with corn and kimchi rice -- this will definitely keep you coming back for more.

2 stars? Well because the portions are very small for the price, taste was ok, nothing remarkable, would have been a better experience if portions were bigger , let's say like the ones in Charlie's (kapitolyo) ..

this burger is pricey for their size, 128078128078

Knowing it's the molito complex, there are a lot of high end restaurants here and you're nit in the most d of going too classy and just want to have that hang out chill place, this is the place to go.

Let me commend the good service here first. The server is so approachable and ever so attentive to your dining needs. She offered me their complimentary nori kropek while you wait fir your order. She'd give you the menu and recommends their bestseller the hang over-- a super sized burger with beer sauce and egg. Server showed me a picture at Instagram and thought it would be messy to eat that order. Their next best seller in their menu is what i ordered.

128204128525 class president @310PhP
American cheese, smashed patty, lettuce, bacon, onion rings and barbecue sauce! I immediately smelled the barbecue sauce. It's a medium sized burger so i could easily eat it with my hands. By the way, it's a little messy to eat this too. Good thing the server will bring out a whole set of table napkins for your use. The bun is a little unique with the other burger joints. This bun is not your ordinary monay with sesame seeds. I cant tell it's a little yellowish and the taste a little egg-y.

Truly a cheaper option of hangout place; sodas and beers are being offered here. The crowd are a lot like millennials but a few foreigners and working age can be found here as well. They could have a problem on accommodating more customers because the place is only for about 40pax.

Oh. Your Parking will be free just ask for a parking ticket from the server. Good thing i read Chili G review! Whew.

Nth review and we're still loving it! In picture is our staple order:
- hangover cut in two
- b Mac cut in two
- French fries with cilantro mayo (don't forget the cilantro mayo!)
- fried pickles
- umami corn
This has really become one of our go to places and happy to say that the quality hasn't changed since they opened ergo maybe it has become even better. The service too!
Since molito has increased their parking fee, don't forget to
Ask your server for a parking stub so you only need to pay 20 (the old fee) instead of 40 128077๐Ÿผ

I was kinda bored spending my rest day at home when I decided to go south. I invited my friend nearby from Laguna and I was glad she came. Luckily, it's Sunday means no traffic going to and from Alabang. I left QC at 3pm and I arrived by 4pm. Living for a few months in Alabang, it quite help me going to my destination. Haha

I'm choosing between Yushoken and Burger Geek but we ended up going to Burger Geek since my friend wasn't a fan of Ramen ( say whuutt? I need to convince her!!!!)

The place was small with it's typical burger joint interiors. What I liked about the place was the Periodic Wall which was cool and nerd. They should add more that kind of theme coz the other corners of the place was boring. No wifi and no power outlet - I'm about to faint because my phone was on the verge of dying which means no picture. Buti na lang pede magpacharge sa loob. I bought time to order so that my phone will have enough battery for food photo-op. Haha

๐Ÿ”นClass President, Umami Corn on the side as an add on.

Potato Bun, Fried Onion Rings, American Cheese, Smash Patty, Lettuce, Tomato, Crispy Bacon, Shiitake Mushroom & BBQ Sauce.

I loved it. Every bite was a burst of flavor inside your mouth. The price was worth it. The bun was soft not sloppy, crispy BACON!, tender and juicy patty and the BBQ sauce was really good. I just confained myself not inishing my burger within 2 minutes. Haha The Umami Corn reminds me of Bad Bird and it's good too.

๐Ÿ”นStaright AES with Fries on the side as add on.

American Cheese, Smashed Patty, Lettuce, Tomato, Shiitake Mushroom, Sauteed Onions and BBQ Sauce

My friend loved it too. Just like the Class president minus the onion rings and bacon. Fries was ok, nothing special about it.

Service was great. Staff were accomodating.

Definitely it's worth a try. My friend will be bringing her brother here soon.

There's a free chicharon or what while waiting for the order.

There's a new burger champion in town and it's called Burger Geek. Located in Molito, Alabang, I finally had the chance to try it out after my friend raved about it so many times.

I ordered the Straight AES which includes their smashed patty, American cheese and caramelized onions. I like my burgers simple because this way, you'll really get to taste the flavor of the meat. And can I just say, wow! The patty was juicy and flavorful. Whatever meat blend they are using, I have to say that I'm impressed. It also helps that the bun they use is soft as a cloud.

There's a lot of burger places popping out these days but there's always that one place that you want to go back to. In the last decade, it was Charlie's. Now, for me, it's Burger Geek. Funny that it's located next to my favorite ramen joint, Yushoken. The decision on where to eat when I'm in Molito just got tougher.

P.S. Don't forget to try their Umami Corn! I'd go back for that too.

Ordered the Geek with a side of umami corn. Interesting take on the corn and half a cob was pretty filling with its Japanese mayo spread. Tasty smashed patty but the bun was easily soggy. Pricey though as that, plus the Class President (with bacon and shiitake mushrooms) and fries was about 700-800.

after braving the traffic, we ended up at our destination which is at Molito Alabang. We chose Burger Geek among those different choices within the area. This was because of the recommendation I seldomn see in the reviews. Well, it was little pricey though, but I personally enjoyed the flavor! Juicy and not so salty. Fries were fine, umami corn was great but the onion rings was a bit oily... That was just okay for us!

If you're down south and looking for something heavy to try on, give this one a chance and see for yourself! yummy and heavy for your tummy!

Delicious!

We seldom go to Alabang thus when we had the chance, me and my friend opted to try Burger Geek. I had high expectation of this place because of the write ups and the reviews that I have been reading.ย  The theme of the place is consistent from the classroom style chairs, to geeky trivia placed in each table down to the name of the menus. ย 

Prom Queen (American cheese, Veggie patty, lettuce and tomato)
Mushy patty, unusual aftertaste not for my taste bud.

Fries
Well-seasoned not too salty, just the right amount of flavor and crunch.

Me and my friends opted for something non-rice for quick dinner and was really craving for a burger so we ate here. The place was nice and designed as if you're in a school of burgers and it was packed. I ordered the B+ or Bacon+ and it was actually good -- juicy and flavorful. However, the bacon was a bit too salty but pwede na. The serving is just right and was nicely presented.

On the not so bright side, the service was bad. We had to call them several times for the menu and other stuff. So ang ending, sa bahay na ako uminom ng tubig. 128542

Nth review for burger geek but I don't mind 128522 this is really our go to place for delicious burgers and sides 128077๐Ÿผ
Doesn't that burger look like it's making a face at you? Ahehe! That's hubby's geek2 128513 tried something new and I ordered the class president but hold the mushrooms pls, the server suggested to transfer the mushrooms to hubby's geek2, good idea! Pat on the back for your initiative 128522 got the fries with cilantro mayo as usual and fried pickles too.
Orders arrived quickly and after snapping some pics, we gamely dove in! I know a lot of people are on th fence about the buns but for me, it really complements the patty very well. It's dense but doesn't interfere with the taste of the meat and other ingredients. Our sides were fried perfectly, no 'old oil' taste that we sometimes encounter. Btw this is to make bawi from our disappointing encounter at bread and botany 128516
We were supposed to transfer to another place for dessert but it started pouring! So we decided to get a strawberry shake for dessert. It was really good! Creamy and thick but not cloyingly sweet 128077๐Ÿผ
Thanks for anothEr great meal burger geek!

Wasn't a fan when i first tried it months ago, but wuw! Loved it this time around.

The buns weren't as soft as i remember (a good thing) and the smashed patty didn't fall apart! Thoroughly enjoyed my B+ burger, it actually deserves an A+ for the crispy bacon and whatever dressing they put in there. Props to their umami corn too! Not a fan of bonito flakes, but wuw again, i liked it!

Only thing i didn't like was the acoustics of the place. It was quite hard to converse. Also, i think it would be better if they provide each table a pitcher of water or maybe bigger cups so we don't have to call the servers so often. Still coming back though. Yummy!

I've been craving for burger for the whole week, and checked lots of restaurant menus and reviews and this place was the most popular and highly suggested.

We arrived the restaurant around 11:45am on a Sunday, and we were shocked to see that customers are already occupying almost half of the restaurant. In my experience, usually around this time restaurants don't get too much customers yet. The place is a bit small, so we're thankful that we arrived a bit early, since more customers, some in large groups, came in just a few minutes after we did.

We ordered the Class President (because I wanted something with onion rings and this is one of the recommended items in the reviews I've read), and the Umami Chicken with Kimchi Fried Rice. After ordering, we were served with chips that seemed like "cropeck" drizzled with seaweed bits. Personally, I didn't appreciate this too much. There were times that I liked it when snacking on it, but most of the time it just felt a little off. But it's free, so I'd rather not complain about it! 128518

I had to order extra sides since I wanted to have fries with my burger, and the burger orders don't come with sides. The burger I had was good. The combination of the ingredients - onion rings, mushrooms, barbeque sauce, to name a few, well balanced out each other to create a flavorful dish. The burger patty was delicious, too. I enjoyed this a lot.

The umami chicken was okay as well. The skin was crispy and well seasoned. The chicken itself was juicy and didn't lack flavor. You would't be able to taste too much of the kimchi in the kimchi rice that was included in the dish. It was just fine for me. The real winner in this dish was the corn. I loved it!!! I really can't explain how much I loved it and why, but let's just say that all the elements in the coating of the corn plus the corn itself made a great combination.

Their service was good. Servers were nice and quick to attend to your needs and requests. Ambiance of the place is nice, too. There is a made up table of elements on one side of the wall, that's one thing I can remember.

Overall, I liked my experience with Burger Geek. My advice, come a bit early if you want sure seats, especially if you want to go in a group (for around more than 6 people) for you to get easily accommodated, as the place, as mentioned, is a bit small.

Our burger cravings are always easily solved by burger geek 128513 having more choices now along molito, it still remains to be one of our faves.
Hubbybear and I split a B Mac and a Hangover. I got their fries (with cilantro mayo yum) while he had the fried pickles. Food was delicious as usual but service was a bit off that day. Having dined here so many times already, I requested for bigger paper cups for our water and I guess the server was new so she said they can't actually use that for water 128563 so I said that I've eaten here like a dozen times already and we were able to use those bigger cups.
Food serving was also oddly timed, our sides arrived at the same time but the b Mac arrived like 7 minutes ahead of the hangover. Would've been better if they arrived at the same time since they were also ordered at the same time.
Nevertheless, both were awesome 128077๐Ÿผ

Been craving for burger so we decided to try something new and because Molito, Alabang have a lot of newly opened restaurants and store, we give it a try.
I ordered The Principal (Php185) while my companion ordered The Geek (Php210), fries add-ons (Pho65) and unlimited softdrinks for (Php85). What's special about their burger is the smashed patty and their potato buns which freshly baked everyday. It tastes good! Wtf 128076๐Ÿป Their regular burger is actually big, while the fries is crunchy. They have lots of choices for add-ons like; Onion Rings, French Fries, Pork Bits etc. My only concern was they only offer softdrinks and shakes, they don't have any juices available while they served free water.
