We were supposedly to try out the Lechon Pizza at Pizza hut, but sadly, it was out of stock and it was only around 8PM. It was disappointing, the waitress told us that it was their best seller, so we opted to go somewhere else. We found Piadina at the 2nd floor of Robinson’s Galleria. It wasn’t our first time to eat here, but it seems the better choice at that time. Here’s a look of the ambiance
It was an open space area, just wished it had comfy couches.
Food we ordered:
For appetizer we had the Grissini – bread sticks with cheese dip
For this order, we both rated it 4/5 spoons. It was really good! the cheese was not overpowering nor the umay kind. It was M who chose this and we sure weren’t disappointed. The bread was crunchy, good for sharing.
M and I loved Joey Pepperoni’s quattro formagi and we had to compare it with Piadina. This is waay different, Piadina’s formagi was not cheddary, but the cheese was very light and creamy (creamy light). This was a winner for our taste, we both rated it 4.5/spoons. We weren’t able to finish it, so I had them wrapped which will be my food for work tonight.
I didn’t like their chili oil though, it tasted like the kind they use on siomai’s, so I skipped the chili oil and ate it as is.
On to pasta…
This was my order, there are 3 kinds of pasta dishes; meat, veggies and seafood. Because I was craving for salad, I went with the veggie pasta. The servings was big. The San Giorgino had tomatoes, fresh sun dried tomatoes and mozzarella, really yummy. Maybe a hint of lemon or olive oil and a little more garlic would definitely make this even yummier, to have a contrast of taste so to speak. But regardless, I enjoyed my order.
M ordered this, it wasn’t in the menu but they said they can make one. Well, M is not into Italian pasta’s since it has a thin base. He likes a thick sauce (yung tipong kumakapit sa noodles), I don’t know how this tasted like, but he gave it a 2/5 spoons. That’s him, hehehe..
Lastly, we had bottomless ice tea’s, and I was really happy about it because it was always refilled and cold. But that’s because there were only a few diners that ate at that time.
Here’s the chili oil I was talking about earlier
Overall, the BF and I enjoyed our dinner, the pizza was good, the grisini and my veggie pasta. Total bill cost us P1,100~ we were definitely surprised, it was like we ate at a posh restaurant already (well almost). But it was because of the VAT.
My verdict: 4/5 spoons I definitely recommend the Grissini and the Formagi pizza.
Oh, and here’s a picture of us with my new hair cut, I just added some bangs and a simple layer
