Yes, American-style diners have existed in the Philippines for decades, with many of us having grown up dining at establishments like A&W Restaurant (root beers and cream sodas, anyone?) and Filling Station (iconic for its kitschy interiors).
The Nokal cheeseburger is our go-to for something filling and satisfying, especially after a night out of drinking in Poblacion. It holds 160 grams of USDA beef, grilled for a dark and slightly crisp exterior, and doubled up in a 2-stack sandwich. It is as heavy as it sounds, and is priced just under PHP300, for a decent meal that will tide you over past breakfast the next day.
