What to do on a gloomy, rainy Saturday afternoon? I have a few in my mind, but I prefer to go on a short food trip around the city! Besides the famous foodie hub known to many as Maginhawa Street, Visayas Avenue and Congressional Avenue Extension are slowly opening more and more establishments. Various cafés and restaurants offering delicious food with great ambiance can also be found throughout those areas.
As mentioned, it was a gloomy, rainy Saturday. We were looking for a place emitting good vibes and great food. So, how does burger and fries sound?
If you are looking for a new place to hang out complete with delicious food, I suggest Chunky Sam’s Diner located at the newly opened Chimes Square in Congressional Ave. Extension.
Experience the diner’s homey ambiance. As you enter, you’ll be welcomed by the friendly staff and a huge chalkboard that blends well with the diner’s setting. The diner is also well-ventilated and clean complete with beautiful chairs and tables. I always adore places with beautiful and comfortable chairs and tables neatly aligned. As much as possible, I would like to enjoy my meal no matter how short or long it is. Not to mention, a soothing background music perfect for that afternoon.
Sink your teeth into Chunky Sam’s Certified Angus Burgers. On the right, you’ll see the different burgers they offer while on the left side of the large chalkboard, you’ll read about the Certified Angus Beef® brand, the USDA inspection and a note at the bottom:
Chunky Sam’s burger patties… 100% Certified Angus Beef®, absolutely no extenders, prepared in front of your very eyes. Chunky Sam’s also make their own buns fresh daily, whip up their own mayonnaise and use only the freshest organic veggies.
