Makati City is blessed with decades-old residential villages like Salcedo and Legazpi Villages wherein one can wander and find a spot where you can sit down and experience gastronomical delights.
We were out just last night for dinner and decided to go to Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza in Tordesillas Street in Salcedo Village. It was my first time at Gino’s but I heard many good feedback about their food and their pricing. I’m very easy to please with food, its either I like it or it’s not in my preferential taste.
Here’s what we had, get your drools on because it’s mouthwatering!
Burrata with House Salad
For appetizer, we had Burrata with House Salad. A quick google search and you’ll know that Burrata is a mix of mozzarella and cream served with crunchy green lettuce. What I liked about this is the gooey texture of Burrata that compliments the crunchy leaves.
Salted Egg Pasta
Expect a few seconds of silence on the first forkful of pasta, totoo yan. As in. First try of Salted Egg Pasta and I was thinking how is this made? Why am I tasting the Salted Egg and yet I can’t see them? First bite is true love. Instant favorite!
Bacon and Sausage Pasta
Long, flat pasta ribbons mixed in a delicious bowl of homemade sausage, bacon, cream and cheese. This is more meaty than the other pasta we had.
Four Cheese Pizza
Four Cheeses. Mozzarella. Blue Cheese. Ricotta and Parmesan. Based with Tomato. Not exactly my type, I’m more savory I guess.
Gino’s is now classified as pizza heaven in my book because of Bacon Gouda. I literally stopped at first bite with a delighted shock in my face and said ” Lasang Pasko!” (“Taste like Christmas!”) Goudda and Bacon go perfectly together and the fact that Gino’s pizzas don’t concentrate on thick crusts, you get to focus on the taste and quality of the food without overeating. I will definitely be back for this!
Drink of choice for that night is Dalandan. It’s more sweet than citrusy which is what I had in mind. It was a cool cleanser of all those meats and cheeses.
I love Gino’s! The food and the vibe just worked together for me. Siya yung kind of restaurant that can be the go-to restaurant ng barkada niyo and magpi feeling cast kayo ng Friends or How I Met Your Mother. Ganun. So if you’re reading this and you want to try Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza…
