Gastronomical Adventures: Pomodoro Pizza

Pomodoro Pizza | Kapitolyo Food Trip | www.jhanzey.net
Mark and I are the type of people who loves to eat and values money a lot. So imagine our joy when we actually found a nice place at Kapitolyo that offers delicious pizzas for a really affordable price.
Pomodoro Pizza, located at San Rafael, Kapitolyo, is a hidden gem. With their hole-in-the-wall ambiance and alfresco type of set-up, the place is unexpectedly photogenic and provides tasty treats that would actually satisfy your cravings for pizza.

I am not the biggest pizza fan, so trust me when I say that their food is A+. The selection is quite good as well, with a hefty number of pizza flavors and pasta styles to choose from. Mark and I have yet to try their pastas, but from the looks of it, it is quite promising.

12″ Amanti della Carne (PHP 229.00); House blend Iced Tea Pitcher (PHP 99.00)

During our previous visits, we were already able to try a variety of their pizza like the Amanti della Carne (PHP 229.00 for 12″), Carne Y Fungo (PHP 189.00 for 12″), and their Hawaiian pizza (forgot the prize, sorry, but I think it was PHP 189.00 as well for a 12″), and so far, they did a pretty consistent job of serving quality food. All pizzas are served on a thin crust, so it was definitely a heaven for me because thin crusted ones are the only pizzas that I adore.

Freshly made pizzas!

One thing that I liked the most about Pomodoro is the fact that everything is freshly made. Pomodoro definitely makes it above the cut by creating your pizza as you order. It would require you to wait for a good 20 to 30 minutes, but at least you know that it’s going to be worth it.

House blend Iced Tea (PHP 99.00 / Pitcher)

I also particularly liked their house blend iced tea, with just the right amount of sweetness to quench your thirst. They also serve the usual beers, but I do hope that they start serving craft/draft beers to go along with their delectable pizzas. I think they also have wines for those who appreciate a nice vino to go along with their meal.

Indeed.
The place also have the nicest staff, who are pretty accommodating and friendly. Their kitchen is quite restricting, though, and if the place gets crowded, there’s a huge tendency that the service would flail, and you might end up waiting for your food for a long time (which is understandable).
All in all, I am definitely in love with Pomodoro and I would highly recommend the place if you are looking for a decent Italian dish for a very reasonable price. Mark and I totally adores the place, and I can’t wait to finally try their selection of pastas! One of the best pizza places in the Metro, I must say.
Estimated Budget: PHP 500+ for two pax

  1. I'm glad I had pizza for lunch today, otherwise your entry would make me crave some! The pizzas you guys got look good, and the crust looks well made. That's nice plus that it's a good price too. I agree that beer goes great with pizza. Hopefully they'll add a beer menu later!

  7. That pizza looks delicious!

    So, I did some calculations and PHP 229 equates to about GBP 3.00. WTH?! That's supeeerrrr cheap over here. I miss the Philippines and how cheap it is – I could live like a queen over there. T_T

    I love thin crust pizza, too!

  11. Will try this! Always looking for something new to try in Kapitolyo, and there's always room for pizza. I'm a fan of thin crust over thick, so it got more appealing as I read further. ๐Ÿ™‚
