Burgoo at the Podium

The other day I didn’t know what I wanted to do for lunch. I had tons of work to finish but I also wanted to take a break. So I called up a couple of friends to see what their plans were. I talked to Reena who was feeling the same way I was. Kind of lazy, not hungry but want to eat, don’t know where to eat, although we really should work through lunch because we had tons of work to finish. We all have days like that. Eventually we decided to go out and eat, someplace comfortable and just be. We went out and ate the Burgoo at the Podium which is a short walk from our office.


Not many people were eating there, usually it’s full at lunchtime with office workers around the Ortigas area. We both liked the Seafood Caesar but then I saw something new on the menu. Maybe it’s not new, I haven’t eaten in Burgoo in ages. It was the Shrimp Popcorn Caesar Salad (P325).


I had the Clam Linguini (P345), my favorite pasta dish which I always have if it’s on the menu.


Reena had the Fried Calamari (P375).


Burgoo at the Podium is always a favorite place to eat. Loved my Clam Linguini although I prefer the Seafood Caesar over the shrimp one. We just sat there, talking, relaxing and before we knew it, it was 1:30 pm! Way beyond our lunch break but feeling lethargic as we were that day, we just could not move quickly. Back at the office, we were recharged and ready to work again
