I recently just went to Yvan Navy, since it's fairly new in our area of residence, and I tried their quarter pounder, nachos with beef, and Kebab pita. All were fairly priced. The nachos were a bit sweet and had a lot of ingredients like tomatoes, lettuce, and onion, but it needed more beef. However, it's not something I'd pay PhP80 for in a place like that. Other than that, it was really good. The kebab, on the other hand, was also fairly priced at PhP50 and had a thick strip of beef with lettuce, onion and tomatoes. It was a bit dry like the burger (I'm guessing all their dishes with beef are a bit overdone), but it was damn delicious.
There are three condiments and sauces that will be available at the restaurant: garlic/shawarma sauce, spicy shawarma sauce, and ketchup. Trust me when I say that the spicy shawarma sauce is spicy and that you have to put the garlic sauce in the kebab. You will thank me. With the sauce and all the other ingredients, the kebab pita will taste like a symphony in your mouth. This is something that I wasn't able to experience while eating the burger mainly because the patty itself lacked flavor for me. It had the same ingredients as the previous food, but with cheese this time. It was't bad, but it wasn't as good as I expected. It does deserve a price of PhP50, and for a quarter pounder, that's already very cheap!
