Have a slice of Sbarro

You know what? I've been here in Makati for close to 18 months now and only recently did I realise that there is good pizza to be had outside the Pizza Hut-Shakey's duopoly.

The pizza place in question is called Sbarro, which serves pizzas unlike anything I've tried before. When I visited the branch at Glorietta 2 last Friday to buy two slices (yes, they sell it by the slice), a long queue had already formed. Using typical Singapore logic, I arrived at the conclusion that the food must be good.

True enough, the stuffed pizza that I ordered was a bit like a pie - chewy on the outside with the tasty ingredients nicely wrapped inside. It would have been better had I consumed the pizzas while they were piping hot, rather than taking them along on a last-minute Christmas shopping tour.

By the way, the pasta that Sbarro also serves didn't look too bad either. Must try it some other time.

When you're in New Zealand, I'll take you to Gina's for a Real Pizza. You'll never eat at Sbarro or the other chains again though.

I'll certainly hold your word to it.
