Foodtrip: Gino's Brick Oven Pizza

Friday is the last day of workweek for most of us, this is the day we normally have lunch out with friends and officemates. We spend almost or more than the accumulated lunch expenses from Monday to Thursday (Agree? haha) because we usually treat ourselves for the hard work we've for the whole week.

With the competitive Makati food scene, it's really hard to decide which is the best place to spend your hard earned money. Thank God for OpenSnap, a photo dining guide application utilizing the full OpenRice content from one million restaurant across Asia in just a simple click.

On that Friday, OpenSnap takes us to Gino's Brick Oven Pizza in Salcedo Village, a Neapolitan pizzeria with an authentic Italian taste but a product of Filipino entrepreneurs.

We arrived earlier than usual and we were able to choose a good seat. The place gets crowded when the clock strikes at 12noon. The interior is very relaxed and simple, I love their triangular lighting fixture and the red brick wall accentuated by plants in a metal pail is a nice home d├ęcor idea.

Among the pizza and pasta dishes we ordered, SMEGG and Salted Egg Pasta are my favorites. 


SMEGG Pizza (Php 370.00): Homemade Sausage, Mushroom, Eggs, Gouda, Cream


Their pizza are made from scratch and freshly served hot on the table. SMEGG pizza is a genius recipe, the toppings and the egg really compliments very well. I enjoyed eating the pizza with their spicy honey sauce.


Salted Egg Pasta (Php 180.00): Fettuccine, Bacon, Salted Egg, Cream, Parmesan


Their Salted Egg pasta is very tasty and creamy, bacon and salted egg is a good combination.

I can’t wait to go back to Gino’s and try their Burrata Cheese and Chocolate Chicharon. See you Gino’s very soon…
