Take the Zark’s Burger Challenge
Just one look at the towering Tombstone Burger and I could already throw in the towel and declare the burger the winner. Yes, it’s man vs. food when you visit Zark’s Burger, which is now open in SM City Bacolod. I was invited, along with a group of bloggers, to sample some of their food, particularly their Major League line-up of burgers, which are served with drinks and fries.
Never mind if the burger seems to bring out your wild side because, at Zark’s, the motto is “The Greasier, The Better”. Customers are invited to take the challenge on the Tombstone and the Jawbreaker, if they could finish one (with the French fries) within the allotted period of time.
The interiors is filled with frames of athletes and sports-related photos. And just like any sport, you must have a game plan on how you will attack your challengers. Before you consider the challenge, take a look first at the different burger dishes available at Zark’s Burger.
