🍽️Origin of Hungry Homies

Hungry Homies was founded during the quarantine days by a group of friends who shared a passion for food, particularly burgers. They wanted to create a place where people could enjoy simple yet satisfying burgers that were made with quality ingredients. Their menu is straightforward, with only a few burger options available, but each one is carefully crafted to perfection.

Interior of Hungry Homies in Makati

When we entered the restaurant, there was a retro-feel in its relatively tiny interior. The elements of red embedded in the design along with bar stools all contribute to this. My heart was just so happy because I always appreciate restaurants who put a lot of effort in making a cohesive concept that translates to the actual feeling when you are in the place.

I looked up at the menu shortly upon entering the restaurant, and I was surprised to see a very lean menu staring back at me. There were just 3 burgers to choose from, and the options for the sides are also limited. This actually further heightened my expectations knowing that they only have few dishes to master, and *spoiler alert*, those expectations were met! 

Cheese Fries of Hungry Homies

To further compliment your burger experience here in Hungry Homies, you may try their Cheese Friends Fries (P150). Very straightforward, yet good. If you like a lightly soggy fries (from the drizzle of cheese sauce), you'll definitely enjoy this one. Otherwise, skip, and go for the regular one instead.

What makes the burgers of Hungry Homies special?

What sets Hungry Homies' burgers apart is the way they're cooked. The patties are grilled to perfection, resulting in a lightly crisp layer followed by a juicy and flavorful core that's hard to resist. Their signature cali-style burger, the Hypebeef (P300), is made with a beef patty, caramelized onions, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, American cheese, and their special Hungry Homies secret sauce. It's a classic combination that never fails to hit the spot.

If you want something out of your usual burger, try the Run BMC (P350). It's made with the same beef patty, but with added pickle chips and mango-wood smoked bacon, and chipotle BBQ mayo which give it its unique character. What makes the flavor more unraveling is that there is shitake mushrooms that give it a combination of reinforcing flavors. Highly recommended! 

Purist Burger of Hungry Homies

If you are torn between the classic cheeseburger and the Run BMC, you may opt for what I call as the merger between these two, the Purist (P300). Somehow it shares characteristics of the first two burgers. From the Hypebeef, it got the fried onion element. From the Run BMC, it got the pickle chips and mayo-based sauce. However, instead of chipotle, it features mayo-mustard dressing. What's mystifying here is although it borrows elements from the first two burgers, it still has a character of its own!
