Leveling Up With Greenwich's Ultimate Hawaiian Overload

Friday, January 8, 2010

Okay so it's New Year now right? Time to turn a new leaf, a new chapter, and some use this time to do major improvements, or as we call it, leveling up. For me, leveling up means doing better with my work and to outdo myself last year. Yes. I'm very competitive. :P Me like to get my drive there.

Anyhow, so Greenwich also levels up a very famous pizza.... with twice the toppings.

So ladies and gentlemen, this chic box with a very mod black and white graphic design (designed by Team Manila) holds an upgraded version of an old favorite:So are you ready to see what's inside? Oooookkaaaaaiiii.... tadatadatdadaa......

Well hello to the Greenwich Ultimate Hawaiian Overload! Just when you're bored with an everyday ham-and-pineapple pizza, Greenwich brings to you something that's not your usual pizza. No it's not.
NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Macro settings states it's not.

Here's the thing: this baby has got twice more toppings than a regular pizza. Imagine this, thin crust, (get the Thin & Crispy! Get it!) then you get your slice.... the pizza just drips with melted cheese, ham, pineapple, and bell pepper. I like it thin crust since it's not too heavy on the tummy, so I get to enjoy more slices at a photoshoot (hinting.... hinting...hinting) and not worry about post-pizza bloat. With the price too, it's definitely bang for your burp buck. The thin and crispy Double is about Php225 and the family size is Php379. Party Square is Php455. Rolled edge double is Php265 and family Php419.

While at it, we got to try the Pizza fries, which are pizza-flavored french fries:Php89 for the big size and the dip. However, if you're a fry lover, the big size, which is the sharing size, could be good for just one person.

Arpee documents the pizza fries. :D This is the cheese and garlic flavor he took a picture of.

Anyhow, by the end of the day, I'm officially a happy and stuffed Bambi Duckie.
Nothing like Brazo de Mercedes to cap a good dinner with friends. :)

Post-Christmas Food-Tripping In Greenbelt

Friday, January 1, 2010

Just last Monday, I met up with my friends again and with a planned tambay mode in Greenbelt turned out to be a hell of a foodfest that drained our wallets thin yet left our tummies full. Yet, we all had so much fun that day. At least we had more time to really talk since the last time we saw each other, we barely had an hour.

Anyway, so here's the agenda... I had a meeting at Enterprise with Nix since I purchased her malette. After that, I walked to Greenbelt 5 to meet up Ram, Jho, and Bugsy. We were deciding where to have lunch and so, we walked to Pepper Lunch. While at the line (I told them the line's really fast and this is one of the most organized restos I have ever dined in, even at peak hours), we discovered one particular boo-boo : We don't have cameras. The photographers Ram and Bugsy forgot their dSLRs. Jho didn't bring her SLR either and she forgot also to bring her trusty digicam. I didn't bring my camera since it was low-batt. We didn't want to leave this day un-documented so we relied on our camera phones. And so our first shot was lining up at Pepper Lunch:

Please note that I was wearing a belt in that picture. We got our orders soon after and since we were hungry packs of carnivores (that day at least for me), we were eating our yummy hot food.

Bugsy and I mixing up our orders. How I finished my Curry Beef Pepper Rice down to the last rice grain, I didn't know.

Bugsy's friend Arhleen followed soon and she joined us with our food trip. :) Food was really hot up to the last spoonful. Everyone finished their food and was totally satisfied. I love my Curry Beef Pepper Rice with LOTSA PEPPER! These pictures were taken by Jho, who made sure that we document our stay there.

For dessert, we headed next door to Gelatissimo, the newly-opened gelato shop. They were so nice to let us try all the flavors. Wiiiiii!!!!!! We sure went crazy doing so.

Even at kooky pictures, Jho looks amazing.

Ooooohhh look at all the gelato! The chocolate liqueur actually uses real Bailey's. When they said liquor, I wanted to try it (heeheehee). It was really good, but I wanted something to wake me up. So you all know what I got? Coffee! Coffee for a non-coffee drinker. Price for a small cup was around Php 110. The medium cup (with two flavors) costs Php 160. So Ram got a medium cup in order to get two flavors. He got the Chocolate Liqueur and Tiramisu. We hung out there for a while until Arhleen had to leave for work. Yet we remained there to clown around, especially with the red seats.
Impromptu shoot. :P The dude at the store even fixed it for us and allowed us to have pictures taken there. Yay! Thanks guys!

After hanging out at Gelatissimo, we wanted to go to another hang-out. Of course, with food involved so we went to Jho's turf... i.e. Red Mango. Jho and Bugsy had yogurts, Ram had a waffle, and I got a cup of tea to ease my stomach from all the food plus I took out some white cheddar tofu chips from Chimara for us to share to have something "healthy" this time. However, I couldn't resist but get a cup of yogurt too. Green tea with double mochi balls.

Jho had to have a picture with her on the wall :P. Even if we already finished our snacks, we were still there to chat. We left around before 5 in order for Jho to get a taxi that would take her back to Eastwood.
How do I evaluate this day? Really fun. :) I really had a marvelous time with my friends and in fact, we're already planning a new food adventure. This time, we're gonna make sure to bring our cameras.
