We first saw Sweet Ecstasy at Cubao X, and one of their signs promised that they serve the best burgers. I thought that was a bit strange; given the name “Sweet Ecstasy,” I’d expected them to serve cakes and cupcakes and, well, everything sweet. We had always planned to check it out, but we can’t usually be bothered to make our way to Cubao.
And then a couple of months ago, I found out that Sweet Ecstasy was coming to Regis Center along Katipunan, occupying the space that was previously occupied by Saint’s Alp Teahouse, if I remember correctly. I monitored their movements and was even aware of the days when they had stress tests and served free food. I couldn’t make it on those days, unfortunately, so I had to wait for their soft opening, when they would be open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
TJ and I finally made our way to Sweet Ecstasy last week. The space looked a bit industrial, and the menu was nice and basic: burgers, wings, different kinds of fries, softdrinks, and milkshakes.
We kept our orders simple. TJ had a hamburger with caramelized onions (P175), I had a cheeseburger with fresh onions (P195), an order of Fantastic Fries (P80), a Coke, and a chocolate milkshake (P160).
It’s true. They really do serve the best burgers. The patties were truly beefy and nicely cooked and not at all perfectly formed, which is nice to see because they look handmade that way. The bread was lightly toasted and buttered, and the vegetables were crisp and fresh. Best of all, it was very filling. I would honestly go back to Sweet Ecstasy as often as I can, and I’m pretty happy that they start their regular hours this week, opening at 10 a.m. every day!
