Lusso has been a long time favorite of mine. I've been a fan of this place ever since it opened. I even remember celebrating one of my birthday lunches here. Last year (I know, late post, sorry!), Mom and I were wandering around Greenbelt 5 at dinnertime and we found ourselves outside Lusso. The fond memories here urged me to go in, and Mom was all-in when I suggested the place. Good thing too, because they brain has already conjured a mental image of what I'm going to order from them. Foie gras burger, anyone?

Ah... The smell of truffle in every bite. We can't get enough!

What happens when you put eggs and truffle cream together? It's a match made in heaven! Weight watchers beware though, it's not very diet friendly.
And now, Lusso's signature burger, the demi pound burger!

I'm sad... look at the cross-section of their demi pound burger, there's hardly a trace of foie gras. I distinctly remember tasting a huge chunk of foie gras when we dined there about a year ago. Oh well. Guess I'd have to find my foie gras burger fix somewhere else.
So how would I rate it? Aside from the disappointing demi pound burger, the others were pretty good. But since there are quite a few places which also offers the foie gras burger, I think Lusso have to step up in able to stay in the game. 3 out of 5 stars.
Lusso is at G/F Greenbelt 5, Legaspi St. Legazpi Village, Makati
