Sweet Ecstasy (Sweet X Manila) Burgers.


One morning, on the way to work, T told me that we should list places we want to go to and make a day out of it.

"It doesn't have to be expensive or new," he said, "just something we both are interested in seeing or trying."

To be honest, I was pretty surprised to hear this from T.  Not that he doesn't like doing this but it's just that I'm usually the one with a list of places I want to go to.  I guess he noticed that I have been feeling 'blah' for quite a while now.  I had a break from that feeling when I went to Hong Kong in June and the US in July but it came back with a vengeance late last year.  

Unfortunately, it has even affected my blogging.  Like I always say, my blog is my diary.  I write about the things that interest me and about the stuff I love doing.  But the last few months, my posts have been sporadic and... different.

I think T noticed this as well and that's why he told me to make that list.  I thought we would start it next week but before I went down the car, T told me that he would take me somewhere after work.  That actually made my day and I couldn't wait until dinnertime.

When T picked me up later that day, I didn't ask where we were going because I wanted it to be a surprise.  T drove to Makati until we stopped at this place called Sweet Ecstasy or more commonly known as Sweet X Manila.




I love how laidback everything is in Sweet X!  No air-conditioning, random posters pasted on the wall, and just a few seats and tables here and there.  






T and I arrived around 9pm already and yet the place was still packed!  I guess it's because of Sweet X's burgers which they say are made fresh to order and grounded daily from 100% pure beef.  And believe it or not, they never freeze their beef!




Their burger menu is simple: Hamburger, Cheeseburger, The Double.

I got a Cheeseburger (PhP170/$3.85) with Caramelized Onions (PhP35/$1) while T got a Double Cheeseburger (PhP230/$5.15).   T and I love how juicy the burgers were!  T also commented that the toasted brioche buns were really good which contributed to the overall taste of the burger.




T also got Ecstasy Fries (PhP130/$3) which Sweet X calls THE fries covered in Ecstasy Sauce, cheese, and caramelized onions.  Both T and I like this.




On other hand, I got Kamote Fries (PhP100/$2.30) which is orange sweet potato french fries served with honey Sriracha dip.   I love how crispy the fries were and almost finish the whole thing even before my cheeseburger arrived.




T ordered half a dozen Sriracha Lime Wings (PhP220/$5).   Other flavors available were Soy Honey and Honey BBQ.




Despite the no frills environment, Sweet X has plastic gloves for those who don't want to get their hands dirty like me (sorry it's a pet peeve of mine!).




To complete the experience, we order Sweet X Premium Milkshakes (PhP160/$3.60).  T chose Nutella Oreo while I got Salted Caramel.  Both were good and went well with our burgers, fries, and wings.




Thank you for trying to get me out of my 'blah' phase, T! Excited to discover even more places with you in the days to come :)


Thumbs Up!
Really, REALLY good burgers.
100% pure beef grounded daily (never freezes their meat).
Plastic gloves for those who don't want to get their hands dirty.
Despite being self-service, the staff is still attentive to the customers.  After placing our orders, T and I found a table but no seats because it was taken by a group seated nearby.  A staff member saw us standing so he got some stools from the kitchen and gave it to us (thank you!).

Thumbs Down!
Limited seating capacity.

Verdict
It was such a happy tummy experience!  I'm glad T brought me to Sweet X.  We will definitely be back!
