I've been away and back, back and away, away and back.
Would have been away still if I didn't have to fly home for this important one-day event.
Mayura Wagyu Burger Pop-Up by Pink Egg Episodes
Pink Egg Episodes is the baby of my cousin Frances and my sister Jamie.
As you can see, they both like animals, and they both like to eat animals.
This is them taste-testing their Mayura Wagyu burgers. I was at every single one of the tastings
to make sure they serve burgers that are up to my standards. OH, THE SACRIFICE!!!!!! :D
And then, June 29, The Big Cheat Day
It was held in a vacant house along Scout Gandia. The place is in the very early stages
of construction, therefore, no air-conditioning yet.
Sorry!!! But they had big Iwata units to keep everybody from melting.
Plus they played a funny Japanese movie to keep diners happily entertained
"This is our pilot episode, please refrain from screaming at us"
"Please enjoy your own #cheatdayburger but share a table"
Tickets were at Php1000 (Goes all out with foie gras)
and P800 (Hold the foie)
All burgers came with chips and a bottle of craft beer or Sola iced tea.
But first, some things you should know about Mayura Wagyu:
1. They stay in a 5-star cow hotel
2. They lay on soft sawdust-cushioned floor
3. They listen to relaxing music for a good night's sleep
4. They eat Cadbury chocolates and gummy bears
(5. I want to be a Mayura Wagyu!)
The game plan
Great burgers come to those who wait.
These guys made them as customers arrived.
Jamie pan-grilled the Mayura Wagyu patties. Each piece was a whopping 150g!
Frances pan-seared the thick slabs of foie gras
Can you say FOIE GRAS???
Scrimping is unheard of in our family
The assembly staff all wore mouthpieces (to ensure they don't drool over your burgers. Lol!)
What went into each awesome Pink Egg Episodes Mayura wagyu burger
The Devil Itself
It was a challenge to bite into the monster burger,
but it was a much bigger challenge to stop biting into it!
Mustard and ketchup. But really, there was no need for these.

The early birds:
I wasn't able to stay all day, but thank you from the bottom of my burger heart to all 218 people who came! :)
