I think until now, I am still busog from that big stuff I ate yesterday. It's a big burger called "Stone cold stunner", and indeed it stunned me. I am certainly not a food blogger (but I'm starting to sound like one)....
Finding this hidden burger house was not easy by the way, Zark's is located at Taft Avenue in front of De La Salle University in Manila. If you see Yellow Cab, and went upstairs on a steel staircase then you're on the right track. The place is comfortable, nothing so special. On the walls are pictures of the green archers. You will see on the counter naman, the pictures of the people who completed the 5 min challenge (i'll tell more about this later).

Here's their menu... I think the owner loves watching WWE, you can see on their burgers' name why.

The next thing we did, devouring the burgers. Warning!: Not for people with hypertension.

So I grabbed my burger, trying to eat it with my bare hands. Fist bite, yeah it's good. Second bite: ooh, the onion is falling. Third bite: tomatoes are falling too. The fillings and the heavy patty were dropping into my plate. I certainly am not an expert burger eater. So I used na lang the fork and the knife, turning the burger into a salad.

My friends were almost done with their burgers, but I was still half way through (at sa totoo lang, I was full already). Buti na lang I did not try their burger challenge.
The Challenge: Eat their jaw breaking Jaw Breaker burger, triple cheeseburger with spam, bacon and overflowing cheese sauce on top, in just 5 MINUTES, yup just 5 minutes. If you succeed then you'll get the burger for free, plus your face will be displayed on their wall of fame. According to them the odds are: almost 400 took the challenge, only 30 survived! less than 10% chance of winning.
