Food Trippin': Flamin' Grill

Jhet and I, plus the boyfs, went on a Saturdate at an old favorite resto - Flamin' Grill. We have spent quite a number of group dates here, and every single one of them is a wonderful gastronomic experience. I remember hearing about Flamin' Grill for the first time as that cool new place that sells the best burger in Dumaguete. What actually makes Flamin' Grill burger different and way, way better than that of the other restos in the city is its naturally grilled patty - that super tasty, pure meat patty that's grilled to perfection. It's not only burgers that the shop has bragging rights over, though. There's a whole lot more unique dishes on their menu that are definitely worth a try.

Service-wise, I'm impressed at how fast their service is compared to the other restos in town that serve similar dishes. So, for our Saturdate, these are what we got to try.

Flamin' Grill burgers are so uniquely tasty. It's a breath of fresh air amidst all those commercial fastfood burgers around. The secret? Aside from the ingredients and spices used, I believe it's the way it's cooked. Look!

For our starters, we tried their Mozzarella Sticks. It's crunchy on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside. The coating's a little thick and a little salty, though; but the tartar dip makes up for that.

We then tried their Garlic & Shrimp Alfredo. It's tasty and creamy, but it's a little on the salty side. The shrimps are perfectly cooked and the pasta's al dente. I'm not a big fan of garlic, though, so I can't appreciate the garlic bits on it.

Keith had the Buffalo Wings in Extra Spicy Glaze. Well, it's EXTRA spicy, mind you, so I recommend getting the mild glaze if you're not into spicy food. The glaze is really good. It's what makes the chicken have that yum crunch.

This is what Jheck had. We requested that the chicken wings on this dish to be mildly spicy, so, I got to enjoy it a lot. The rib barbecue was perfectly grilled and the honey dip's equally perfect.

This one's their raspberry iced tea. Well, it tastes like the regular iced tea, but with a raspberry after-taste. Too bad, their blue lemonade's not available.
