MANILA – Want to know what Atom Araullo wants in a burger?

A homegrown burger restaurant introduced on Wednesday a burger named after the ABS-CBN News reporter, who became popular among Internet users across the globe last year for his daring coverage of super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).

Also known as the Meat Cuddler, the newest offering of BRGR The Burger Project is crafted by Araullo himself using his favorite ingredients.

It contains a double Angus patty, mozzarella, blue cheese, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, egg, lettuce, pickles, steak sauce and wasabi mayo.

BRGR said the burger is now available at its branches at Maginhawa St. and Scout Rallos in Quezon City, and at Jupiter Street in Makati.

Owned by chef Ed Bugia, BRGR is known for letting guests design their own burgers – from the bun and the type of patty to the dressings, cheese and other fix-ins.

Aside from Araullo, other celebrities who have crafted burgers for the restaurant include “It’s Showtime” hosts Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz, basketball player LA Tenorio and author and comedian Ramon Bautista.
