Drive out to these burger joints and bring back what you were missing.

With the extension of the lockdown from April 12 to April 30 now implemented by our government, we would have to sit back and do what we can at home. As of April 16, 2020, the Philippines has a total of 5,453 COVID-19 cases with 349 death cases.

The least that we can do to contribute is to stay at home. With that being said, we can’t just help but to miss the outside world.

If you don’t have a plan just yet as to where you would go after the lifting of the lockdown, then we recommend you dropping by a burger joint – which is something that we miss ourselves.

Here are 10 burger joints we can visit after the quarantine.

1. Shake Shack

Shake Shack pretty much introduced itself to us. This renowned and hyped burger joint that started in Manhattan is adored by many. In 2019, Shake Shack finally arrived here in the Philippines. You might want to get in line early as Shake Shack all over the world is known as a burger joint with long queues – especially now after the quarantine.

2. McDonald’s

We know that McDonald’s delivery is just one click away. But, don’t you miss the place where we all wish to eat when we were still kids?

Those late nights in college when we were undecided where we would eat with our friends? If you say yes, then this is definitely a place to visit after the quarantine.

3. Pink’s

Despite known as a great hotdog place, Pink’s still managed to make its burgers stand out to people. Some even claim that they prefer Pink’s burgers more than its hotdogs. To find out, go and try it yourself after the lockdown.
