When we think of it, most people nowadays have been more adventurous when it comes to food. With the onslaught of new establishments opening left and right, and the rise of numerous ‘foodie’ blogs, people realized that it is finally time to let go of that blunt fast food diet, and instead try out other options with restaurants and food stalls that offer meals with a much better quality of the same price.
For this entry of Off the Eaten Track, we’ve taken a quick trip to the infamous Maginhawa Street, and decided to look further into the depths of this foodie haven for a burger place that will satisfy our cravings… and our budget as well.
Our itchy feet brought us to Magiting Street, where we were able to find one of the most interesting burger places in the area.
Stuff Over Burger Cafe, true to its name, will make you feel full and satisfied with their selection of stuffed burgers. Yup, you’ve read that right – their burgers are stuffed, not only with flavor, but also with cheese and bacon bits, among many others.
Currently they are offering three varieties of these delicious babies – the Chilly Dilly (cream cheese and jalapeño stuffing), the Hungry Daisy (smoked bacon, caramelized onion, and cheddar stuffing), and the Mushy Suzie (sautéed mushroom, caramelized onion, and cheddar stuffing) – all of which are served with a half-pound patty and a hearty serving of fries.
One of the best things about their burgers is the fact that it’s juicy and bursting with flavor. The stuffing is a surprise against the mouthful of meat and offers a contrast in texture. The melted cheese provides an extra savory flavor against the ground meat and bits of bacon and onion.
In case you don’t want to be overly stuffed, you may also buy smaller servings at Stuff Over. And if you’re not in the mood for a regular cheese burger they also offer other offerings like barbecue, fish, or chicken burger. Aside from burgers, they also have grilled frankfurters served in buns and drizzled with your topping of choice, rice meals, and other offerings.
They also have three different desserts to choose from, perfect after you’ve devoured that ginormous burger: milkshake, wicked Oreos, and their holy chip (deep fried chocolate chip cookies with ice cream).
However, the size of their burger might just be inversely proportional to their space. So if you plan on paying them a visit, make sure that you drop by a little earlier or a little later than the peak hours, so as you’ll be sure that you can get a spot.
Surprisingly, dining in at Stuff Over would only cost you around P350 – P400 for a full meal. Definitely not bad and worth going a little off the eaten track for.
Stuff Over is located at #51 Magiting St., Teacher’s Village, Quezon City. They also opened up a branch at Sapphire Road, Ortigas Center, last April 2014. They are open 12:00 PM – 10:00 PM, every day.
