MANILA, Philippines - You may know Hotshots Burgers by its famous gourmet burgers. With its wide range of burger options to choose from, it’s definitely a delight to always come back to Hotshots Burger and try a different one on the next visit.

It has the most interesting bunch of buns and patties in town, from the quarter-pound triple treat in the form of Burgeritos, to the classic quarter-pound Burger Deluxe.

It also has that kind of Cheeseburger that will definitely spell creaminess in the mouth, while its Garlic Cheese Burger will surely leave that tangy sensation on the taste buds.

Diners can also opt for sweet tickles from their burger with Hotshots’ Caramelized Onions Burger or feel that Latino beat of fresh homemade salsa with their Chicano Burger. They will also definitely get a kick out of the Kamikaze Burger with its wasabi sauce and feel their tongue tingle with the creamy Real Bleu Cheese Burger.

Better yet, take on the challenging heart-stoppers from Hotshots like the Crispy Burger Melt, generously topped with mushroom, bacon bits, and creamy cheese sauce, or you can have the Ultimate Burger, that half-a-pound of all-beef goodness-in-a-bun. But if you’re feeling a bit cheesier than expected, go for the Ultimate Cheese Burger option.

All these great burgers from Hotshots, however, don’t come alone to whet your appetite. They may take the lead role on the table, but their supporting cast should not be ignored any less. Fries go well with burgers, but they can also be paired up with other options like the fish fillet, chicken fillet and Hungarian sausage, or even with Hotshots’ very own Tachos.

But for those who can’t take a meal without rice, Hotshots has the answer. Enjoy fish fillet strips with tartar sauce over a cup of rice, or if say burger patties are just for buns, think again. Hotshots Burgers also offers patties over rice with generous amounts of melted cheese on top, or get hot on its chicken fillet smothered with buffalo sauce. All rice meal options — fish, burger patty and chicken — come with thick gravy sauce for that oozing and delicious goodness.

Pasta lovers will also definitely enjoy their stay at Hotshots Burgers with its diverse offerings of spaghetti, even the classic type with its rich and meaty tomato sauce plus hints of various herbs and spices. There’s also Pasta con Tuna that’s perfectly cooked for those who love the taste of the sea.

The Hot and Spicy Pasta is sure to challenge everyone’s courage to “take the heat.” Enjoy this pasta offering with its generous amounts of chicken chunks, fresh tomatoes, plus herbs and spices slowly simmered in cream.

Get pasta with a Filipino twist, on the other hand, with the “Pastanisa,” a simple spaghetti pasta recipe tossed in garlic and olive oil, with the famous Vigan longganisa thrown in for good measure. And kids will surely love the sweet tomato meat sauce pasta with hotdog and ham once they have tasted Hotshots’ Pinoy Spaghetti.

Hotshots Burgers also have good-to-share bar chow platters. Its Pinoy-inspired Fish Fritters, or simply cream dory fillet lightly seasoned and wrapped like spring rolls then fried to crispy perfection and served with fries and wasabi-mayo dip, will surely play with your taste buds. It also has the Hungarian Sausage Trio, sausage slices that rest on top of a mayo-mustard dressing over garlic bread, then topped with olives and also served with fries.

Meanwhile, cocktail-sized Hungarian sausages and German franks served with fries and chili beef with beans are what Chili Wee Dogs is made of. Hotshots’ Sausage Hotties, on the other hand, will make you dig in to an assortment of five specially selected savory sausages, with non-spicy variants like BBQ Griller, Kielbasa and Hungarian and some spicy variants such as Creole and Spicy Hungarian.

Health-conscious diners need not worry as well about their diet because Hotshots also offers healthier options with fresh green like Garden Fresh Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette and Asian Salad with Roasted Sesame Dressing.

All these flavorful varieties make up Hotshots’ appetizing menu because at Hotshots Burgers, having a complete dining experience is not just about the burger, it’s also about the variety of choices that complement each other.
