We Pound Love in Ayala Vertis North

Pound by Todd English is now open in Ayala Malls Vertis North! We couldn’t be happier to welcome this well loved burger joint to the North! Congratulations to the Foodee Global Concepts team for continuously bringing their brands to more places to reach to more audiences.

The grand opening event was graced by none other than their Marketing Head, Ms. Ariane Valinton along with Pound’s brand manager, Patty. The restaurant was packed by mixed patrons. Most of them were foodies in that room, but there were also paying customers since they were already fully operational then. I take that as a really good sign.

As with all Pound branches, they kept the interiors very similar. They had an open kitchen and used the same tones and hues. Seating capacity wise, it was more intimate than their other places. It’s still new, so there’s a lot of time to improve, as we observed they also needed to work on the ventilation of the venue.

We were treated to a grand tasting wherein we could go ahead and order whatever we want. Our hosts were just amazingly generous, and we couldn’t complain at all. We were able to sample some of their best sellers and even new items.

Their consistency in food and service is highly commendable. Even as there a number of points to work on, Pound by Todd English in Ayala Malls Vertis North is definitely worth a visit and a great new place to dine in Quezon City.
