I have an upcoming top secret project with CJ the DJ of Magic 89.9, Gino Quillamor of RX 93.1 and a number of other guys. But that's for another post. Anyway, CJ texted me and told me to go to this place in Katipunan called Gino's Brick Oven Pizza. (Coincidence lang na kapangalan ni Mr. Quillamor)We had our dinner there.
Gino's Brick Oven Pizza is owned by Mr. Jutes Templo and his wife Cello. (She happens to own Cello's Doughnuts) :) Gino is the name of their baby boy! :)
So anyway, let's cut to the food!
We ordered 2 Pizzas. The first one was the Bianca Verde. It was a pizza with kesong puti and arugula leaves. That simple! But let me tell you, it was EXCELLENT! It was FANTASTIC! What made it so special was that Jutes and his team use the finest ingredients. It's authentic Italian Pizza my friends! The DOUGH! Ang lupet! The texture was soft and crispy at the same time! It's foldable, NEW YORK STYLE! I tell you, the combination of the Arugula and Kesong Puti is astounding! It's mind-boggling! ANG SARAP!
Next on the menu is the Buffalo Chicken Pizza. Now this is what Jutes is proud of. This is entirely different from the commercially produced buffalo chicken pizza. The Gino's Brick Oven Version has a lot of mozzarella, a lot more chicken, bleu cheese and spices!!! The pizza comes in sweet/salty/spicy. It's a terrific blend of flavors in my honest opinion. The spiciness is just right! Magnifico! I highly recommend that you guys try this when you visit the restaurant.
These 2 flavors are a perfect combo! It goes well together! Other flavors include Margherita, Prosciutto, Four Cheese, and Pepperoni. The Bianca Verde and Buffalo Chicken are signature dishes so I suggest you order what we ordered! :)
Gino's Brick Oven Pizza is located in Katipunan Avenue at the K2 Center Building. It's the building with the Mercury Drug across Miriam College and it's right above Figaro. To the Ateneans in College, have lunch here, you guys won't regret it! Trust me on this one!
