Written By clapalisoc on Thursday 16 March 2017 | 11:45

When Pound by Todd English opened in BGC, they went all out with their opening promo and people went crazy lining up for hours! #PayWhatYouWant on their burgers was the name of the game! As they opened their second branch in Mega Mall on March 13th (Monday), they rolled out the same promo all week long!!! Buy a burger and #PayWhatYouWant on your 2nd burger!!! They're not strict about the rules - you can buy 1 for yourself and get another for your friend. Great deal yuh? The Foie Gras Burger though is not included in this promo! 

Went to their VIP night last week through a sponsored invite - thanks to my friend Abe! Pound by Todd English x foodfanaticph = YAY!

Pound by Todd English, Mega Mall

Located in Mega Fashion Hall, 2/F, they have a 16 seater area where the kitchen is housed plus an open area right smack the middle of the mall. The smaller space was reminiscent of the BGC branch - dim lights, very private ambiance.

Pound MegaMall
Just look at all the details of the bigger dining area of Pound in Mega Mall!

The bigger area had a semi-open space that's hard to miss since it's aesthetically pleasing! Industrial and very modern in design, it totally changed the dull landscape of that section of Mega Fashion Hall.

Eric Dee, CEO of FooDee Global Concepts, had us order anything we wanted from their menu!!!

Crispy Goat Cheese Salad from Pound MegaMall
Crispy Goat Cheese Salad for 150Php

This was simple but definitely good! Crisp and fresh greens, onions, heirloom tomatoes, raspberry vinaigrette and about three packets of deep fried goat cheese ravioli! Loved the sweet and tangy vinaigrette and the goat cheese ravioli with that strong goat cheese flavor that I fancy!

Bacon Poutine from Pound MegaMall
Bacon Poutine for 210Php

Fresh cut fries x home made gravy x lots of cheese x lots of bacon chunks! The gravy was good and went well with the gooey cheese! Can't go wrong with bacon and fries!

Sides: Truffle French Beans and Truffle Risotto Tater Tots

Truffle French Beans from Pound By Todd English
Truffle French Beans for 120Php

This was one of my favorite sides! Crisp French Beans deep fried with this salty and truffle infused batter, served with a mayo based dipping sauce - loved the strong truffle kick!

Truffle Risotto Tater Tots from Pound MegaMall
Truffle Risotto Tater Tots for 75Php

Believe me when I say that one serving is not enough for 1 person! My foodsocietyph homies agree that this was THE BEST appetizer for the night! Creamy risotto bites that have been deep fried with a truffle infused batter giving off a nice truffle kick and a lovely crunch! Topped with lots of grated cheese and a side serving of dipping sauce, you must order this!

Since we were allowed to order our choice of burger, we got one of each to try ---

Foie Gras Burger from Pound  By Todd English
Foie Gras Burger for 700Php

THE ULTIMATE BURGER!!! For 700Php, you'll get two relatively big cuts of Foie Gras (50g total) on top of some Foie Gras Mousse, a thick and juicy all beef burger patty with lettuce, tomatoes, fresh onions, caramelized onions all in a toasted bun. Loved the creamy, luscious and very tasty Foie  Gras that was perfectly seared! Went well with the medium rare burger patty. 

TE Crispy Chicken Burger from Pound MegaMall
TE Crispy Chicken Burger for 225Php

A generous portion of tender and tasty chicken meat with a crunchy coating, TE Sweet Spice, pickled slaw, cilantro aioli all in a toasted Brioche Bun! Delicious Chicken Burger!

TE Burger from Pound  By Todd English
TE Burger for 195Php

This is signature burger, with a thick and juicy House Ground Beef Patty, tomatoes, lettuce, crispy onions, TE Sauce, Mustard Relish, toasted Brioche Bun. 

TE Burger Sliders from Pound MegaMall
TE Burger Sliders for 155Php (2pcs)

I must say that the burger patty was tasty and well seasoned!

Bacon & Eggs Sliders from Pound MegaMall
Bacon & Eggs Sliders for 200Php

Two pieces mini burgers each with thick house-cured bacon, quail egg, apple aioli in a Brioche Bun.   The contrast of the salty bacon and sweet aioli was good!

Amsterdam Burger from Pound  By Todd English
Amsterdam Burger for 280Php

I wasn't able to try this burger since I was too full! But this one had a thick house ground beef patty, pastrami, fried onion, Gruyere, Sauerkraut, mustard relish, TE sauce in a toasted homemade Brioche Bun.

TE Sundae from Pound MegaMall
Dessert: TE Sundae

Their only dessert with a hefty serving of chocolate and caramel sauces at the bottom x vanilla ice cream x Betty White Brownie Cubes x OMG Brownie Cubes x rock salt. This was just okay. The brownie cubes were a little hard and the ice cream was Selecta 😂😂😂

Definitely loved their burgers! Based on the quality and serving size, I can say that they were reasonably priced. Same goes with their starters!

Don't forget to drop by their Mega Mall branch from March 13 to 19 to take advantage of the their OPENING PROMO!!! Again, it's #PayWhatYouWant on your SECOND BURGER (except Foie Gras Burger)!!!!
