In-N-Out Opens Pop-Up Store in ManilaSeptember 11, 2018

For quite some time, there have been rumors about In-N-Out coming to Manila. It seems that the local crowd has been longing for this famed burger joint to enter the Philippines, as seen in this community page, which has been petitioning for them to put up a franchise here.
And since nothing was really happening, there was more than enough reason to turn a blind eye on the rumors. Until yesterday. Because from 11 a.m.–3 p.m., In-N-Out catered to the salivating Filipino crowd via a pop-up store in Bonifacio High Street’s Clawdaddy.
While we weren’t able to sample the burgers ourselves, we were able to get a bit of feedback via Instagram and Twitter on how they tasted like, and if they were true to the ones in the States. While skimming through the photos, I was surprised to see that the secret menu items (Animal Style, Protein Style, etc) were displayed. But then again, it was probably necessary since the people behind this In-N-Out Manila pop-up store wanted its customers to sample the bestselling items (whether they were in the regular or secret menu).
Take a look at what we dug up via social media. Rumor has it, they’re opening here for good by the end of the year. For the meantime, you can recreate their Animal Fries through our recipe here. Patience is a virtue, indeed.
