Few months ago, a new burger joint called G-Spot Burger Bar in Sta Mesa, Manila made rounds online and took the public by storm. The students from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines and people of Sta Mesa were among its first patrons but due to word of mouth and the social media, in the blink of an eye, everyone goes gaga about it. In few weeks time, this burger joint was inundated by customers from around the metro eager to know what fuzz is all about. I, too, want to know why.
The place is a garage. There are around 9 tables which can accommodate approximately 50 customers at a time. They are open Monday-Saturday at 3:00PM-10:00PM. They said there is always a queue so we went there at around 3:00PM and luckily customers are still few but before we finish eating, the place is already full and people outside starts to queue.
What makes G-Spot Burger different from other burgers like Zarks, Yvan Navy, Army Navy and the like? This was the same question I have when I first saw it in pictures. Well, reason is simple, it tastes as good as it looks. Shout-out to those colorful buns!

My friends on Facebook be like, "We found the G-Spot!" and I thought of something else (if you know what I mean). I messaged the bar's Facebook page and found out that "G" stands for Germaine (the owner) and also means Gourmet Burgers. The Spot stands for a place. So basically it's a place of Germaine and Gourmet Burgers. Just like that!
How to get there?
If you're from Mandaluyong or Pasig area, you can ride a Pasig-Quiapo jeepney and ask the driver to drop you off at Pureza.
If you're from south, you can take MRT and drop off at Shaw Blvd Station then ride a Pasig-Quiapo jeepney. If you're from Pasay area, you can ride the LRT1 Edsa Station and drop off at Doroteo Jose Station then ride the LRT2 Recto Station then drop off at Pureza Station.
You must be hungry by now so from Pureza St, go towards the direction where Jollibee is located. This will take about 7 minutes of walking or you can ride a tricycle or "padyak". Now walk straight ahead until you pass by the PUP College of Eng'g campus, and turn left. You're now at the Anonas St and walk for few minutes until you reach the PUP College of Communications. The burger joint is in front of it. Congratulations, you're good at finding the G-Spot!
So if you're looking for an ultimate foodgasm experience that doesn't hurt a wallet that much, then G-Spot Burger is a must try. Hashtag foodporn! -Jon-
