Tropical Hut Hamburger celebrated their 53rd Anniversary last February 7, 2018, Wednesday with a 50% off discount on their Classic Burger with Cheese and a large glass of Coca Cola product. They used to reign the Fastfood scene before Jollibee and McDonalds came into the picture. It shows from their clientele that only those who remember them during their hey days come to visit and avail of the promo. No lines, no widespread marketing campaign online. Just banking on word of mouth and customer loyalty. The place too needs a major upkeep. It looks like i just stepped back in a small time machine because it looks exactly the same as it was during the early 90s. Their BF branch did fare better with a couple of renovations since they opened. The burger tastes, well, Classic. No fancy flavors. Just your good 'ol beef burger with tomatoes, cucumber and slice of cheese. For 88 pesos it is a trip back memory lane worth visiting.

Tropical Hut got my taste buds screaming again for more with their Hawaiian Glee burger which I got for breakfast the other day.
Tropical Hut's burgers have become my ultimate favorite for years and years and has become my benchmark for all burgers at this price range. Smell the beef and you'll know immediately what I mean.
At first bite, your teeth would sink into the soft, sesame seed topped-bun which doesn't feel dry (like other fastfood chains). The thick pineapple slice complements the beef and gives your mouth more adventure as it starts to sync with the burger's tastiness.
Biting into the Hawaiian Glee burger is one experience i wouldn't want to end soon. It's great to know the quality of the burger hasn't changed (it's been like this for years already).
Service is very good at this branch, parking is quite a challenge as that there is very limited parking (only 1 vehicle can park in front).

Tropical Hut has been missing from the burger limelight for quite a long time. We've tried out this burger joint recently and it not only completely satisfied our cravings but zapped us back to memory lane to recall our long lost connection with this burger joint. Bear with me as I narrate my love story with this burger joint.
I recall my younger years when me and my dad would buy a burger from the Alabang-Montillano branch after our Sunday pamamalengke at the Muntinlupa Public Market. I didn't eat burgers (burger patties in particular) until I was in high school. In my kinder/prep days, my dad would always separate the beef patty from the sesame-seed topped bread, leaving only the cheese, coleslaw and some pickles. What I do like about burgers is the smell of the burger joint, and Tropical Hut tops the fast food choices as the yummiest smelling joint, even better smelling than Jollibee and Mcdonalds. Yes, back then, I raided burger joints for coleslaw and pickles :-) and the oh so good smell of burger.
Come high school and the Tropical Hut branches started to disappear (or nasapawan lang sila) and Jollibee + McDo took the burger industry by storm. The first burger (yes, patties now included) that I officially ate was a McDonalds cheeseburger. Jollibee was next. Tropical Hut came in a few years later but it did not become an instant favorite until I started working. Back then (and until now?!?) the nearest Tropical Hut to our office in Makati is the Crispa/Gil Puyat branch right beside Mercury Drug.
That's when I started to revive my relationship to Tropical Hut and savor the sweet smell of the Tropical Hut beef patty. Sadly, my connection with Tropical Hut stopped when I was assigned in our Sampaloc office and doon ko naman nakikala si BK, who became my favorite for quite sometime, until I was transferred back to Makati.
Amidst the flourishing food outlets in the area, Tropical Hut was not even in our daily 'San tayo kakain?' map for years until one of my colleagues suggested that we ordered burgers from Tropical Hut. Upon opening the bag, I immediately smelled what I have missed for a long, long, long time.
After this short reunion, we (now with Espie and Kandyce) started to get burgers from Tropical Hut again, from this same branch as it remains the most accessible (and still the only) branch nearest to us. The burgers are the same - in size, in taste and in smell :-) :-) :-) They use the same big bun as they had years ago - filled with sesame seeds on top. Oh and you will be zapped to the eighties when you visit this branch as it barely changed all these years ;-)
So is Tropical Hut my favorite burger? Nuff said...!
