This is probably a sign that I don’t eat enough fast food. I never knew there’s a secret menu at every restaurant. Not until I learned of this secret menu item at Triple O’s, mentioned it to Mr., then I finally realized the power of customization at restaurants. You mean, I could’ve ordered two pieces of chicken in my McChicken this entire time? I have missed out a lot all these years!!
In celebration of White Spot’s 85th anniversary, Triple O’s has introduced a secret menu item — the Triple Triple Burger. I was offered the opportunity to give this a try, but knowing that it’s one decadent item, I invited TC to come along and split a combo with me.
Off its regular menu, one can order a Double Double at Triple O’s: two beef patties, two slices of cheese, and two pickles topped with its famous Triple “O” sauce. Then what is the Triple Triple? It’s Triple O’s biggest burger yet. It’s a 3/4lb burger made with — you guessed it — triple beef patties, triple cheese, lettuce, tomato and Triple “O” sauce topped with triple dill pickles. You get why I had to split the burger with TC now?
Boy, this burger really isn’t for the faint of heart! The two of us shared a combo, which came with a Triple Triple Burger, yam fries and a soft drink, with an extra soft drink on the side. And that was it. I initially contemplated the idea of ordering a milk shake but decided against it. There were plenty of calories to last us through the afternoon.
I admitted to this before; I’m not a burger person. But I know when I have an awesome burger. We had to order it to-go and bring it back to the office. When we got back, ignoring the strange looks from our coworkers, we dived into our burger. It was still nice and hot, patties were juicy and moist, and the cheeses, though American processed cheese, were melted perfectly on the patties. I really enjoyed it – finished my half in lightning speed! I thought I’d be all grossed out afterwards, but not at all. Mind you, I only had half of the burger (which probably contains the same amount of calories, fat and all the bad stuff that a full-size regular burger has, if not more), but still. It was freshly made. I think they make pretty good burgers!
It’s not a cheap burger, though. Burger alone costs $9.99, the combo costs $13.49. Overall, pretty good for a fast-food style burger.
This is really a new menu item, and a secret one. When we walked up to the cash register to place the order, the cashier hesitated for a few seconds before realizing what is going on. So, go try one before it becomes known to the mass public. Make it a treat for yourself — and please, share it with someone!
