Army Navy: To Enlist or Not to Enlist, That is the Question

Captain’s Log, Monday, 2011-08-08.  Karla was coming home for a visit from Manila.  At that time, Army Navy had recently opened a branch in Camp John Hay, so we decided to give it a spot check. =D

*tsk pitiful bunker. I was expecting to run into a real Quonset. Oh well.

We got various items from the menu like the steak starving sailor, steak burrito and steak soft tacos (We have a food theme *harhar) and washed these down with liber-tea which was the only drink worth ordering there (refreshing and ‘healthy’ besides water).  We got some freedom fries to pick at too.  When Race arrived a little later, he got himself the three-patty bully boy burger.

Sunny day at Army Navy

After being MIA for so long, the sun decided to make an appearance.

We had a good time at Army Navy.  That was mostly due to the idea that P3 was complete again.  The food was okay.  I found my starving sailor a bit dry.  The salsa from Beth and Karla’s tacos and burritos didn’t help.  I particularly liked the burger – juicy, flavorful with a bun studded with sesame seeds.  I like their fries too, reminds me of the crispy crustiness that the twister fries from McDonald’s has.

A few months later, Army Navy opened another branch in town.  Race and I went on the mission to tinker with their extras.  The salsa and the guacamole were flavorless when I used it on my starving sailor before and I was dying to know if a little more salt and lime would do some good.  My advice, make your own at home.  =D  This time, however, I was wiser to order the Army Navy burger, so all was well on that front.

When my brother had a burger craving, I joined him in the restaurant so he could try the heart stopping goodness that is the bully boy burger.  We ordered milkshakes with that and it proved to be a good choice because it was milky and creamy.  Strawberry milkshakes normally tasted like medicine to my brother but with this Army Navy concoction, he loved it.  (The soldiers didn’t scrimp on the ice cream there; hip, hip, HOORAY!)

Another thing that deserves commendation is the side door to the Session Road establishment.  The first time I was there, I tripped and fell over the door sill that led to a step and I twisted my ankle really bad.  (Good thing, this isn’t the States because if it is…lawsuit *sing song tone. =b) Today, that hazard of a sill is gone. *shyeeewww

UPDATE 11/15/2012:  (Still BE VEWY, VEWY CAREFUL – Elmer Fudd tone – passing through that door, the step can still be slippery. Better yet, just pass through the other door.)

Enlisting for Army Navy

Enlisting for Army Navy

So should we enlist for Army Navy?  Yes, if only for the juicy heart stopping goodness of the burgers, the crispy crusty fries and the milky creamy milkshakes.

X marks Army Navy for good food in Baguio.

Food: 3 treasure chests  overall but talking about the bully boy burger, the fries and the milkshakes, it’s 5 treasure chests

Service: It’s self service so might as well give yourself all the treasure chests! =)) 5 treasure chests

Ambiance: 2 treasure chests  (I still want to see a real Quonset. *heeeee). UPDATE 11/15/2012: Zero treasure chests for the Session Road branch for their hazard of a second entrance. How can you enjoy your meal when you’re writhing in pain or rushed to the hospital for a broken leg or a twisted ankle?

Price: 2 treasure chests   (The steak starving sailor is too dry to be P165.  The extras are too bland to be sold for P25 and P20.  The freedom fries have too small a proportion to be P65. Better get the bully boy. (“,))

    Apparently, taking the door sill out of that particular entrance to Army Navy Session Road is for nothing. The step is still slippery and so it’s STILL A HAZARD! Careful passing through those doors, guys! I think you should so something about this entrance again, Army Navy Session. =(
