“This burger was an absolutely delicious bite, but of course you can't really go wrong with the old trusted avocado + bacon combination. I got it from the cook at Liquid, ( ) a Diveresort I stayed at for a week in the Philippines. After a long day at sea this just hit the spot together with a San Miguel beer! The beer is optional by the way.”
