I started my chicken-fish diet a couple of weeks ago and no, it wasn't because I wanted to lose weight. But it was upon the advice of my doctor who once and for all knocked some sense into me. For those who know me, I am a huge meat eater. But since my so-called "diet", I've learned to shun away from Crispy Pata, Sisig, lechon and other similarly oily dishes. Well for 6 days a week, anyway. On Sundays I have the liberty to eat whatever I want.
A few days ago we decided to visit the newly opened Johnny Rockets along Tomas Morato. My god, the 50s interior was just beckoning. If you are a burger & fries + milkshake kind of girl (or guy), then this place is definitely for you.
Johnny Rockets is an international restaurant chain that provides the food, fun and friendliness reminiscent of feel-good Americana. On June 6, 1986, the first Johnny Rockets opened on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, offering guests friendly service and great food in a fun and nostalgic atmosphere.The place just makes me want to down several burgers, a couple of milkshakes and a huge glass of iced tea. With rollerskates on. I'm glad we visited on a Sunday, otherwise I'd feel totally guilty.
Every original Johnny Rockets restaurant boasts great tasting food from a menu of favorites including juicy hamburgers, classic sandwiches, and hand-dipped shakes and malts. Guests also enjoy an all-American look and feel, tabletop jukeboxes and authentic decor.
The place also boasts of unlimited fries and fresh 100% pure beef patties which are never frozen. Don't we all hate pre-mixed and pre-packaged patties? I know I do.
And good news for my vegan friends, Johnny Rockets serves 100% Soy Burgers! Can you say awesome? The prices though, are higher than your average TGIF and Chili's.
The place features old, feel-good music much like what my parents listened to while I was growing up. You can also select your own music from the jukebox (no Lady Gaga here, doi) for only Php1.00. I personally chose "Im Into Something Good" by Herman's Hermits. It's such a nice song, isn't it?
|Entertaining dance numbers every 30 minutes|
|I got the Route 66 burger -- Swiss cheese, grilled mushrooms and caramelized onions. It was sooo good!!! This is an upscale version of Burger King's Mushroom Swiss|
|The Chicken Tenders were a bit dry and tough. Better to have a platter of delish Chicken Fingers at TGIF|
|happy faces :)|
