Tagaytay Food Trip: Mushroomburger

Our recent Tagaytay weekend spent in a beautiful and serene place called Las Ventanas wouldn’t have been complete without a visit to Mushroomburger Tagaytay. We found this fast food place that serves the blog-famous mushroom burgers filled with diners on a late Sunday morning. Of course, I had to order a mushroom burger! A mushroom sandwich, actually, which I’d found out later, contained no beef patty but 100% mushroom filling.

You dine at Mushroomburger just like how you dine in most fast food restos. You queue up and wait for your turn at the counter. You tell the girl at the counter what you want and you are given a number right after. You then wait for the food to be served on your table.

Mushroomburger's space in Tagaytay was pretty big. It had a separate room that serves as a dining area, too. The place was a little dusty and humid during our visit but it couldn't be helped since it was fronting a busy national road and relied only on ceiling fans for ventilation.

While waiting for our order, I saw some framed photos of various species of mushrooms (all edible I supposed!) and the famed mushroom burger in its full glory.

I just loved my burger as it tasted so fresh and healthy! Basically, it had oyster mushrooms, mayo and some tomato and cucumber slices on a warm bun. Each bite was filled with the earthy and juicy flavors of the mushrooms. At one point, the meaty texture of the mushrooms even made me believe that I was eating real meat patty! The cucumber slices, pickle and mayo provided the needed crunch and sweet-tangy flavor to the sandwich to complete the burger experience. It was so good I'm sure my vegetarian friends would love it.

these mushrooms sure look like chicken chunks!

I partnered my burger with a plate of Pinoy-style spaghetti. The pasta was a bit soggy and the sauce quite watery but the overall taste was okay. It reminded me of Tropical Hut’s version.


The fiancé, on the other hand, ordered a rice meal and he got this:


I tasted his beef patty (mixed with mushrooms, I guessed) and it was delish, too.

We were surprised to learn the food items at Mushroomburger Tagaytay were very affordable. Their burgers were priced at less than P100 each. The drinks were under P50 per glass.

I had a Sago Gulaman drink while the fiancée had regular Coke.

gulaman, anyone?

All in all, our bill amounted only to just P268. A good deal, if you ask me.

what a cheap but delicious lunch it was!

Mushroomburger is a bit far from Tagaytay Junction but if you’d like to taste delicious mushroom burgers from where it originated, then a trip has to be scheduled pronto. Just drive straight the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road and soon you’ll see the big Mushroomburger signage on your left. The place has free parking and lots of parking spaces so feel free to bring your car.

'till my next visit, Mushroomburger!

If you don't feel like driving all the way to Tagaytay for this, Mushroomburger has branches at West Avenue and Katipunan, Quezon City.
