I’ve tasted one of the best roast beef in town two Fridays ago!  I still can’t get over that roastbeef plate meal at DAYRIT’S BURGERS AND ROASTBEEF HOUSE in Tomas Morato.

The experience led me to research about the place and found out that Dayrit’s Burger and Roastbeef House was a famous establishment way back in the 70s.   Their old branch in Taft Avenue (near DLSU) has gained quite a following due to their famous roastbeef and delicious home-cooked food.  They quickly branched out to Buendia, Greenhills, UST, Alabang, Timog and Katipunan.  Unfortunately those branches are gone now.

However, Dayrit’s Burgers and Roastbeef House has relocated to the ground floor of Paseo De Magallanes in Makati City.  A second branch was also establish at the ground floor of the JSG Bldg in Tomas Morato cor. Scout Delgado, Quezon City.  This is where we had our lunch last November 23 with celebrity couple Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado.

Dayrit’s Burger and Roastbeef House is the brainchild of Wilfredo “Freddie” Dayrit Sr., a casino owner in the 60s.  A native of food-loving Pampanga, Freddie diverted his attention to cooking and started making tapa (dried marinated beef) and chorizos (seasoned sausages) to give away to friends and neighbors when the Casino closed down.  The first Dayrit’s restaurant was born from this humble beginning.

I’ve tasted their house special Roast Beef Plate which is really a mouth full for only P300 a plate.  My friends tried their Bulalo Rice (P295.00) and Fresh Corned Beef (P285.00).

Roastbeef Plate – yummy!
