Arjho, on hamburgers in the Philippines I do agree they do taste differently. I will tell you this they are beef meat and it is good quality beef. What the difference is the cuts of meat that are used. In the United States organ meat is not used in ground beef. I notice a slight gamey taste in hamburgers in the Philippines. They are using hamburgers made with heart, liver, kidneys, and I don't know if the lungs are used. If the animal was healthy when slaughtered the meat is fine.

If you are an American go into any major supermarket and look at the price of ground beef. Then go look for beef liver or hearts in any major American supermarket. It is very difficult to find, since most Americans do not eat organ meat anymore. If you go into a grocery store in an area made of predominant ethnic group that likes organ meat it will be no problem to find. I hope that answers your question. The reason I knew this an American supermarket was selling prepackaged hamburgers for $5.99 for a 4 lb box. I was curious and read the label on the back. It was made of predominantly hearts. I looked up on Wikipedia about beef heart, it has a strong flavor. I would bet this venue is buying frozen cattle organs and grinding into ground beef, there is nothing wrong with meat except the taste. I know Jollibee sells hamburgers made with cattle organs. At this time I don't buy beef for the last two years because it is so expensive. Imagine the cost of beef for the average Filipino family? Beef is not raised in the Philippines so it is brought in frozen to keep it from going bad. My in laws live in the Philippines and don't have a freezer to store frozen meat. I hope this helps.
