Amare La Cucina: Woodfire Brick Oven Pizza

Yes, you read that right! WOODFIRE BRICK OVEN PIZZA!

Area was kinda warm coz of the oven just by the dining area and lack of ventilation but absolutely tolerable.

Finally my curiosity on what a brick oven baked pizza tastes like has been tamed by this fabulous restaurant.

Hand tossed dough, fresh ingredients, almost everything's from scratch, brick oven, a good location with chill sounds (not the FM thingy that would give you empacho), friendly crew and a BIG smile on my tummy. What else would I ask for? Not to mention it's not your commercialized tasting kind of pizza. Seriously, I can go on and on and on praising their pizza!!!

Bottom line: affordable, more than amazing palate and tummy happiness, all worth it. Pizza toppings has a lot of variety but only served in one size (approx 12 inches). Fast service, therefore fast eating :D

The Food

White Pizza. Plainly mozzarella cheese and some bacon.  No tomato base. FANTASTIC! Gone in no more than 10 minutes.

Sausage Pepperoni Mushroom.  As the name implies, those and mozzarella based with tomato sauce made from scratch, I can so taste the freshness. YUMMY!!!

Marianne's salad. Lettuce, cucumber, carrots, arugula, chopped nuts, and dried tomatoes drizzled with vinaigrette. REFRESHING!

Drinks were home brewed regular iced tea and mint iced tea. Not that impressive but WTH. Everything's so perfect so just savor the moment :)

We asked for hot sauce and they handed olive oil with crushed chilies and who knows what herbs are there. Not that spicy which I think is great coz it wouldn't ruin the taste of the food. Had a really great dining experience. Don't  forget to leave a tip for those who served you ;)
