It’s not often that we get to venture away from our comfort zone just to watch movies. But this last undas, we had time on our hands so we decided to watch a movie at the Central Square Cinema in BHS for a change. The GOppets’ passion, aside from eating, is watching movies.
Although a bit pricier, the spanking new movie theatre is a welcome change. It even SMELLS new! ;)
We made sure not to fill our tummies with popcorn & other nonsense because we were all craving burgers. And I knew just the perfect place for a big, fat, juicy, make-your-own burger that will fit nicely into Kap’s budget. ;)
8 Cuts Burger Blends
G/F Serendra, 11th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig (02) 631-4388
The name ‘8Cuts’ is a reference to the eight cuts of beef used in the 5 custom blends that only 8Cuts offers — chuck, rib eye, short rib, sirloin, brisket, hanger, flank and ox tail. All patties are made in-house from 100% pure U.S. beef. Their patties are also hand-pressed so no two are ever the same, adding to a unique experience! All freshly ground, custom-blended, and seared to order.
The newest Serendra branch, just like its sister branches, is always FULL. But lady luck was smiling at us that night when a table opened up & my kids quickly grabbed it before anyone else could. Good job, kiddos! Mommy has trained you well. :))
I loved how the menus looked like magazines. And there were so many burger choices & toppings available that it took the kids a good 15 minutes to decide what they wanted for their DIY burgers.
Because they dilly-dallied in contemplating what would make THE BEST DIY burger, Kap ordered appetizers to keep his hunger at bay while the kids chose generous burger toppings. Loaded Tex-Mex Ground Beef Nachos 295 php. For the price, I really thought we’d get just the basic nachos with cheese. So this OVERLOADED nacho platter came as a very pleasant surprise! <3
This Chinatown Shrimp Poppers 260 php brought the word “comfort food” to another level. I would have taken a photo of the plump shrimps inside except Kap & the kids popped them in their mouths faster than I could say W-A-I-T.
Skinny Fries 45 php. Pimp your Fries! Sub-Atomic Bacon and Cheese – add Php70.00, BBQ, Jalapeno and Mozzarella – add Php90.00, Truffle Parmesan – add Php100.00, Bacon Jam and Egg – add Php70.00, Chili and Cheese – add Php125.00
Another complete surprise was this order of GIANT yummy barbecued Onion Rings 65 php. The prices were UNBELIEVABLE! 65 php for the whole lot. AMAZING! I fell head over heels in love with 8 Cuts & I haven’t even started on the burgers yet! Crisped to a golden brown & spattered with barbecue flavor with big, crunchy onions inside. Noms!
I love my goofy girls! <3
Next time we’ll make sure to try the rest of the appetizers: Good Ol’ Hot Fried Wings 285 php & the Golden Cheddar Mozzarella Sticks 225 php. In case you’re not in the mood for burgers, 8 Cuts Burger Blends has other grubs guaranteed to satisfy even the pickiest eater:

Kap doesn’t drink soda. EXCEPT when there is a MUG root beer available. That, he can’t say NO to. So he had a Brown Cow Float 115 php, while Ate opted for the light german beer 165 php. Feeling turning-20 na kasi siya! :P
While I treated myself to a Lemonade Margarita 165 php. Forget FRIDAY’s. 8 Cuts Burgers is now my favorite burger (and drinking) joint! <3 If only they had one closer to home. Boo!
Because a burger is best paired with milk shakes, my babyson’s Strawberry Milkshake & my Lovey’s VanillaMilkshake. Sizes available: 12oz. 150 php | and this 16oz. 180 php
Finally, the kids came to a decision and ordered the DIY burgers of their choice. Kap & I, impatient old farts, just ordered the ready made ones on the menu. We are old. We don’t have time to dilly-dally. :P
At 8 Cuts Burger, everyone is happy. Even Kap. The price points are very Kap-approved! $ka$ching$
Kap’s The Q-Daddy. Serving: Tri-Cut 295 php | and this Double Patty 385 php. A quarter-pounder OX Blend patty of flank, oxtail and rib eye with yellow cheddar, onion tanglers, crisp bacon strips, iceberg lettuce, tomato, jalapeno ranch and sweetly spiced BBQ sauce all on a Sesame Seed Bun.
My Lamb Burger 385 php. 6oz. House-Ground Lamb shoulder patty with feta cheese, harissa, sliced cucumber, yoghurt, pickled red onions, house-made aioli all on a Brioche Bun (which I took out).
Ate‘s DIY burger -which is far too complicated for me to identify the toppings one by one.
Suffice it to say that it was so good she actually ate the whole thing!
My Babyson’s double patties DIY ultra-loaded burger! <3 I was super envious & wanted to trade. But of course, he didn’t want my single pattied bunless lamb.
My Lovey’s Burger 145 php. A single quarter-pounder house blend all-beef patty with your choice of sauce no. 3 or no. 4 on a sesame seed bun. She kept it simple & topped her burger with just an egg. She doesn’t like complicated things. ;P
