The Cheesiest Place on Earth is in Metro Manila

Dec 19, 2019

Who loves cheese? I do! But I only get to appreciate cheese when we have to cook spaghetti for a special occasion (kasi hindi titipirin ang cheese para sa bisita) or during merienda; having Eden cheese or Cheez Wiz as palaman. So when I heard there's a fast food that offer meals that has everything but cheese, I immediately grabbed the chance to try them out!

Everything but Cheese is a fast food restaurant serving meals filled with different kinds of cheese and not the usual processed cheese that we know of. They wanted the Philippine market to taste cheeses from different cultures and incorporated it with the kind of meal we love eating.

Their 5 Must-Try Cheesy Meals

1. Baked Bacon Mac & Cheese

I'm so in love with pasta and this is, by far, the cheesiest mac & cheese I have tasted! Which makes this my favorite from now on! Actually, it's amazing to find out how this pasta has three (3) kinds  of cheese on it, yet hindi sya nakakaumay at all. The cheese that were combined to make this delicious dish are cheddar, parmesan and colby jack. 

2. Beef Philly Cheesesteak Rice

This is my second favorite talaga! But a little trivia muna for others who are not familiar with Philly Cheesesteak...it's originally a sandwich. But since rice is Pinoy's staple food, EBC made it to a rice meal para mas mabusog tayo. It's my first time to eat rice with mozzarella cheese and it was flavorful! Having this for lunch would really keep you full and satisfied until dinner time.

3. Buffalo Cream Cheese Sandwich

Honestly, I've been avoiding spicy food as it triggers my asthma. I accidentally took a bite of this sandwich and tasted its spiciness. Pero ito na yung pagkain na may anghang na nakaya kong tiisin at kainin. Plus, hindi na-trigger ang asthma ko. I actually took a few more bites kasi masarap sya. Sinabayan ko nalang ng chocolate milkshake para medyo mawala yung anghang sa dila. This is ideal for those looking for a savory kind of merienda.

4. Chicken & Cheddar Cheesy Burger

I have tried chicken cheese burgers from other fast food chains and I would say this is different from the them because of the cheese they used and how the chicken was cooked. The cheese is overflowing and best consumed as soon as served. 

5. Classic 3-Cheese and Spicy Pimiento & Pepper Jack Cheese Fondue

These are the star of their menu! The Fondue! They have two options:  One is their Classic 3-Cheese Fondue which has, hence the name, 3 classic cheese: double cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. It also comes with french fries, nachos,onion rings and a chicken teriyaki!

The second one is their Spicy Pimiento & Pepper Jack Cheese fondue which comes with nachos, chicken teriyaki, mojos and bacon-wrapped mozzarella sticks. As mentioned earlier, I avoid spicy food so I gave a pass for this. But according to my friends who tried it, there was this distinct taste they can't seem to describe but it tastes good. They wanted me to try it because they think I can handle it. Maybe in my next visit I'll give it a shot but I'll bring some friends to share it. Baka hindi ko kayanin mag-isa. Hehe.

For drinks, we ordered their milkshakes. They have three (3) flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla and Mocha Caramel. They have other drinks like blue lemonade and iced tea but we opted for the milkshake which we believed compliments all the cheese we consumed.

◢  About Everything But Cheese 

Say hello to Sir Ben, the owner of Everything but Cheese. He's just 26 years old and he's able to put up this unique business concept. We were given the privilege to interview him quickly and he shared to use a few details how EBC Started.

Everything But Cheese started small, back in 2015, with just 7m² and was located in Plaza Hugo, Sta. Ana. Initially, they started serving sandwiches and sausage but as time goes by, they had to innovate to keep up with the market's wants and needs.

We initially thought that this was a family business. Turns out, it wasn't and it was his sole idea to up a business after college. He was an accountancy graduate and instead of taking the board exams, he chose to start a business with just about Php30,000 as capital. By 2017 they were  able to move to a bigger space in FC Square Plaza. By 2018, just last year, investors approached him which is why they were able to open branches in Sherwood Taft and Ever Manila Plaza. Actually, they will be opening a new branch in SM City Manila this month! So do watch out for it.

What an inspiration for other people with entrepreneurial mind, right?!


Simple answer: THE CHEESES! As mentioned earlier, they aim to provide the Philippine market with a variety of cheese from different cultures. Hindi natin basta matitikman yan sa ibang fast food who most likely use processed cheeses. So to have EBC serving different meals with different kinds of cheese at an affordable price, should be enough reason for you to visit and try them out:

📍 EBC Sta Ana Manila (2:00 PM - 12:00 MN)
2322 FC Square Commercial Center Plaza Hugo Sta Ana Manila 

📍 EBC Sherwood Taft (11:00 AM -11:00 PM)
2264 Sherwood Place Commercial Center, Taft Avenue, Malate Manila. Near DLSU Manila. 

📍 EBC Ever Manila Plaza (9:30 AM - 9:00 PM)
C.M. Recto Cor. Nicanor Reyes Manila, Near FEU & UE Manila


I'm definitely going back! I plan to visit their upcoming branch in  SM Manila or at least their Taft branch since it would be closer for me. I want to try their garlic parmesan wings because I heard that's one of their best-sellers.

I also wish they'd have one within Dasmarinas, Cavite para mas malapit na sa akin. Hehe!
