Here’s H.I.D Burgers! With H.I.D. meaning healthy, irresistible and delicious, they’re somewhat a make-your-own burger joint that offers a wide variety of options to choose from. It’s nothing new in the industry, but I guess what they offer, how they taste and how much makes the difference!
Directions: their burger joint is hard to miss- it’s just located along the Antipolo side of Marcos Hi-way between AMA Computer College / Filinvest and Wilcon Depot / Kingsville Village right before SM Masinag.
There’s ample parking space shared by the entire commercial compound, not to mention enough seats for everyone. They have seats outside for those who want to smoke and they also have two floors indoors containing a number of tables for customers.
Ordering is simple: they have pre-made recipes of burgers which cost P105-125 for single patty and P125-145 for double patty. They also have hotdog versions of the recipes for P105-P125. Add P45 for potato wedges and P10-20 per add-on. Here’s what I had: Premium Bacon Mushroom Melt with Garlic Chili!
Besides the hotdogs and burgers, they offer other specials such as Hungarian Sausage Slices, Hot Asian Wings, Chicken Nuggets, Cheesy Bacon Wedge Fries and Classic Potato Wedges.
The Verdict: Good burger place with a twist. The patty meat is tasty, juicy and tender although a bit small in terms of diameter. But I guess that doesn’t matter if it’s the weight of the patty we’re talking about? H.I.D’s P145 1/3 lbs. vs. McDonald’s P150 1/4 lbs, not to mention their unique add-on relishes and sauces!
There’s supposed to be nothing out of the ordinary on what I ordered, but that P10 Garlic Chili Add-on made quite an impact! I might sound like I’m over-exaggerating, but it was nothing I’ve tasted on a burger before. The taste was like that of the garlic chili you find in Chinese restaurants- having that on a burger sounds weird but tastes so right! This will probably be my mandatory add-on every time I dine here.
The Hot Asian Wings were okay. They were more sweet than hot. The skin is really crunchy though!
