Success, at last!

We did it, we did it, WE DID IT! After tw0 failed attempts, ricky and i finally made it last night to the Amici di Don Bosco (Friends of Don Bosco) eatery!

ha! last order is at 8:30, she said! well, we got in at 8:15. actually,
I got in at 8:15 and immediately ordered, and ricky followed suit after parking the car (aaaah, strategy...) . and so, to celebrate our success, i ordered two pasta variants: one of their specialties, Lasagne al Forno (baked lasagne with bolognese sauce, bechamel and mozzarella cheese) and my favorite, Linguine alla Puttanesca (linguine with tomato sauce, capers, anchovies and olives),
and one specialty pizza, Tutta Carne (tomatoes, mozzarella, sausage, cooked ham, spicy salami and olive oil).

as with our previous foiled visit, the cafeteria was packed, with more groups still coming in. aside from the food itself, the whole experience of eating there is quite unique. as it is with (most) cafeterias, everything is self service.

indeed, once we tasted the food, we understood why the place is popular. in one word - okay, two: truly del
icious. the pizza, in particular, was perfectly crisp in the crust, and everything that went into it we could just savor. the pasta, of course, did not disappoint.

by the end of the evening, we were so full that even if i still HAD TO try their gelato, i just could not anymore. the damage for everything? P540.00/$11.00. not bad, right?

definitely coming back. and we'll make sure to come before 8:30 pm every time!

(Amici di Don Bosco is open Mondays to Saturdays, 10:00 am to 9:00 pm - or make that 8:30, just to be sure. It is located along Pasay Road, corner of Pasong Tamo. Parking is available at the church or school area)

Those Don Bosco Brothers like to eat!
I think they got the best gelato in town!
They even organize cooking lessons so that you can make your own pizza at home !
