Army Navy

In our search to find a good foot/hand pump for the new Quickie Q7 wheelchair that was purchased recently, my parents and I chanced upon (again) a small restaurant we frequently take for granted whenever we visit SM North EDSA. So I invited them to take the plunge and have a taste (finally) of what our hungry brains were craving for at that moment.


Starving sailor. Thinly sliced rib eyed steak topped with jalapeno-cheese spread, green bell peppers and caramelized onions in an 8-inch sourdough bread. (P235)


Classic single quarter-pound.  Beef patty topped with fresh crispy letuce, tomato slice and onions, mayo and ketchup on a toasted sesame seed kaiser bun. (P155)




Above is the self service counter of  Army Navy located at the Sky Garden, SM North EDSA.


Verdict:
We were happy with our orders. My mom and I shared the 8-inch starving sailor which was exceedingly flavorful! I was glad we did this because it was surprisingly filling and satisfying. I personally loved the sourdough bread that was chewy or leathery and the rib eyed steak was so tender. Me on a diet? I burned the added calories in the gym the following day.


My dad on the other hand ate the classic single quarter-pound burger. He adores burger since he was a kid and all he muttered was, "This is good..." while savoring every bite.


Oh and there's more! My mom used her senior citizen discount card. To our surprise, the total bill was discounted a generous 20% off when most establishments only subtracted the food ordered by the cardholder. Let's patronize this place!


Disclaimer: I am not encouraging you to eat this kind of food in a regular basis due to its high calorie content. I blogged about it to introduce this find to those who may want to experience what I have enjoyed.

  7. Yum---both of those meals look delicious, Farida. Looks like you had a great outing... Hope you also found the pump for the wheelchair while you were out.

    By the way, all of the pictures on my blog post today were mine --except for one (which was my hubby's)... My pictures have the watermark of betsyfromtennessee and George's have the watermark of Photo by Senior Hiker.

    1. Yes they are both delicious. We were not aware that the tires had double lock and found it difficult to pump air when we were trying the pump in the shop. We thought that a different adaptor was need so we did not buy it. We brought the chair to the vulcanizing shop and the double lock was discovered there! Next visit to the mall, will surely get the pump :D
