Last May 21, 2014, I was invited by Jonas (my fellow Davao Blogger who blogs at www.davaocityguy.me), to taste the new product of the Backyard Burgers which is the Pineapple crumble. With regards to this, we also have an opportunity to meet Dan, the baker, who is behind this innovation.
Dan shared his experiences with his family and how they came out with the idea of selling this pineapple crumble. He said that he revised the ingredients and the taste to achieve his satisfaction and perfection.
As a dessert lover, my tongue was enticed as the group talked about this food. What makes this pineapple crumble unique is that the pineapple used is fresh from Bukidnon and the butter used is from Mindanao. The pineapple crumble from Mercedes Breads and Cakes actually originated in Cagayan de Oro City but is now available at the Backyard Burgers, Ecoland, Davao City. The pineapple filling is so sweet and luscious. You could taste its freshness as you give a bite. The crust so creamy and it complemented the juicy velvety filling. You won’t hesitate to eat the crust. Everything is just perfect!
One serving is equal to one slice which is for only Php 90. I recommend you to have a try! This dessert can be eaten for merienda, for breakfast or for dinner. It can be eaten anytime of the day you want. This dessert is worth a try and another try and another try! I shall say that you have to get one now!
As to my surprised, they let us try their new burgers in the menu (hurray!). This Korean Burger is served with a kimchi, a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. It is spicy in way but tolerable by the tongue. Its thick patty is very flavorful and has been brought to perfection because of the creamy yummy cheese.
Another burger that is new to their menu is this mouth watering Spicy Bacon Burger. It is basically a Backyard Burger thick patty plus bacon strips. To avoid the dissociation of patty from the other ingredients, a stick is needed to hold these in place.
