(Sarap ng Libre) Perfect Treats… Eat out!
When my cousin asked me to accompany her to buy a laptop, I agreed instantly because I knew she’ll going to treat me. She asked me some suggestions of good restaurants to eat to and I told her, Papa John’s.
Papa John’s (Better Ingredients, Better Pizza)
The first time I’ve known this restaurant was when they opened a branch in Robinson’s Galleria. I love pizza and pasta so I was really longing to try out this one when they branched out in Megamall. Their menu typically consists of Pizza, Pasta, Soup and Salad, and with Side items like cheese sticks, bread sticks, and potato wedges. To check out their menu, you may click this link.
Their pasta are already good for 2 so we ordered two pasta for the 4 of us, 12″ medium sliced pizza and potato wedges.
I like their pasta. The Carbonara (PHP 180.00) is usual but still a must-try. I love the Diablo Burst (PHP 180.00) pasta, my most liked flavor in my most liked Italian dish, astounding! The pasta is spicy and flavorful, highly recommended for spicy food lovers. 🙂
Papa John’s Potato wedges (PHP 90.00) are fried unpeeled wedges of potato seasoned with salt and spices. This is a variation from the common french fries and mojos.
For pizza, we had Simply Cheese pizza (PHP 360.00). I discovered something delicious here. Pizza is perfectly great when dipped in butter! Yes, the taste was so good, pizza and butter were perfect match.
All in all, our order costs PHP 891.00 (including 10% service charge). It was a great treat, indeed.
My cousin asked me again if it’s okay if her friend use my credit card to purchase an installment item. I thought about it at first but agreed after a while. She told me that her friend will treat us dinner in exchange of using my credit card, and I was delighted with the idea. My cousin can’t get enough of Papa John’s so we ate there once again.
It’s weekend and the restaurant is full of diners. It only shows that Papa John’s is winning a lot of satisfied customers.
So this is Papa John, the founder.
We ordered the same pizza, Simply Cheese (PHP 360.00).
Great when dipped in butter. Butter is refillable, so dip it all you want! 🙂
For pasta, we ordered Pasta Bolognaise with meatballs (PHP 195.00) for a change. I slightly don’t like it because it’s meaty.
For side items, we had Bread Sticks (PHP 70.00).
Papa John’s is my new favorite Pizza and Pasta restaurant. Not only because of its affordable food selection but the better ingredients that made its pasta and pizza better.
Peri – Peri Charcoal Chicken
Three months after graduation, finally my brother has work already. It’s a tradition to treat family on the first salary so I asked my brother to treat us for dinner. He agreed. He wanted to eat at Papa John’s but I told him I had just eaten there yesterday so I recommended Peri Peri to him.
Also known as Piri piri, is a cultivar of Capsicum frutescens, one of the sources of chili pepper, that grows both wild and domesticated. It is a small, extremely spicy member of the Capsicum genus.
We ordered their group meal cost (PHP 6++.00 – I forgot the exact amount). The meal consist of 1 whole chicken (garlic or spicy), large java rice and 4 side dish which includes 2 coleslaw and 2 corn & carrots.
I wasn’t able to take pictures of our remaining orders because the camera ran out of battery. The chicken is comparable to El Pollo Loco. It tasted good, but my craving still go for El Pollo Loco! I love the coleslaw. I wish side dish was included in eat all you want! For beverages, we availed their Soup & Beverage All You Want for PHP 49.00 per person. The Soup & Beverage are self service, so better get up from your seat and get all soup & beverage you wanted. No sharing and no left overs! 🙂
Soup choices are mushroom soup and corn soup. Beverages includes cold drinks, tea and coffee. I like the corn soup, much better than the mushroom soup.
I was eyeing to have a cup of coffee afterwards but we got no time. We still have things to do and go to afterwards. I wasn’t able to consume the all you want promo that much! Sigh… Anyways, thank you Brother for the treat! Finally, I have someone to share the expenses during family events and gatherings! 🙂
Truly enough, the best things in life are free. Food is more enjoyable when shared! Thanks for the treat, ’til next time! 🙂
