This is a sponsored post.
February 28, 2018 Manila, Philippines – Hanging out on a Friday afternoon with my long-time food buddy, she invited me to drop by at the newly opened and first POUND by Todd English branch in the North. She planned this well though knowing I will not resist because proximity-wise I will pre-agree with her! Our foodie adventure that late afternoon also served as an instant push, ideally we define it as “a celebration of friendship, foodies and gigs.”
POUND has finally opened its last out of 7 branches at Ayala Malls Vertis North, its very first branch in the North. POUND at Ayala Malls Vertis North has two available seating areas, both inside and outside the restaurant.
Pound by Todd English is known for the signature grilled burgers made from premium beef patties. Treat yourself with an affordable luxury of rustic Mediterranean cuisine. Chef Todd English expands his culinary borders to international flavors, creating a true dine-around experience among the nine diverse food stations (Ocean Grill and Oyster Bar, Noodle & Dumpling Bar, Pasta Bar, Sushi Bar, The Grill, Taqueria, Pizza, Cheese & Charcuterie, Wine Bar and Patisserie.
When Todd English Food Hall came to the Philippines, the Filipinos’ mindset of dining greatly changed with the introduction of the first Celebrity Chef Restaurant and has set the trend for the food hall concept. On the other hand, From the burger station in Todd English, POUND come out as new concept focusing on delivering gourmet burgers. The resto’s marble tables, dim lighting, and plush leather couches spell luxe sophistication that completes the dining experience.

4. Todd English Poutine P180 (around $4) – dish is good for sharing, poutine is a meal itself. It’s made of ground beef mixed with fresh cut fries, caramelized onions, cheese, and topped with homemade gravy.
5. Crispy Goat Cheese Salad 150 (around $3) – also good for sharing, the usual green salad, baby heirloom tomatoes drizzled with raspberry vinaigrette and accented with deep fried goat cheese.
Pound recipes are mostly influenced with pleasantly relish flavours. Curious to know what’s behind the “secret menu?” It’ll be more fitting for you to ask the friendly staff from Pound and find out the what’s/why’s behind the recipe. But (yeah I will spill the beans partially so don’t fret?) It’s made up of double patties with caramelized onion without the sauce. All the burgers can be customized with add-ons from different kinds of cheeses, sauces and extras. Set up your burger according to your liking.
