On a whim my wife and I visited the newly opened Buffet 101 at the New Glorietta, we were enticed by the promise of an elegant and upscale buffet that they were able to deliver in their Mall of Asia branch. Their tagline of serving the same level of gastronomic experience as in upscale hotels is up for my judgment.
We went to Il Ponticello for their themed dinner, Couple’s Date Night, which happens every Monday evening and is suppose to be an enchanting evening of music, romance and dining. The place was all set for a romantic ambience with a piano man and dimmed lighting. The establishment has earned rave reviews including several awards as one of the better restaurants in Manila.
I was invited by OpenRice to review Papa John’s a pizza joint that has opened here in Manila. Good pizzas overall I must say. They served three pizza flavors to us, looked quite good and a feast for the eyes.
The ultimate combination of tasty pepperoni, Italian sausage, ham, freshly sliced mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and black olives. A legendary taste treat!
This was the first thing I grabbed, I think while people were chatting about the food I was already grabbing a bite. All the flavors were just right, no overpowering single taste. Perfect balance of flavors, I specially liked the cheese and the toppings though the overall taste experience was held back by the crust. The crust was just ok. Continue reading →
Wow! This was once part of my elementary and high school days. Domino’s was one great pizza chain, I love how perfect their pizza crust is. Just the right consistency. I think I was in first year high school when we would call in and have pizza delivered, my cousin and I love the deluxe, the potato tots and the apple pie.
I’m not sure but I’ve heard that the franchise left the country a few years back, but now it’s been here for quite some time and I’ve noticed that branches have been opening around town. So, I passed by one branch near where I work and out of the blue decided to buy and eat Domino’s again.
