Papa John's - Makati branch- great pizza place

Recently, I attended the Eat's a Date event of Open Rice. For your information, Eat's a Date is a social food tasting event wherein you get to try the food (mostly bestsellers and specialties) for free and all you need to do is blog about it, and enjoy-plus point is that you get to meet a lot of people.

The venue is at Papa John's - Jupiter, Makati branch. The place is clean, simple yet modern, American-themed, and has the overall feeling of a pizza place. It is a nice place to have dinner or snacks with your friends in the middle of a busy day.

We are served several dishes- and all are yummy!  For appetizers, we tried Onion Rings (129 pesos), Potato wedges, and Mozarella sticks (129 pesos)

All of their appetizers are reasonably priced,and delicious. It will truly prepare you for the upcoming heavy dishes. Just prepare not to overeat. If you are on the healthy side, they also have Green salad with chicken.

Their pizzas are hand tossed so it really has that chewy oven baked texture that you will adore.

So what's special about Papa John's? One of the trivia that I can share is that every pizza comes with a butter dip and chili. You can simple dip the crust in the butter while biting the chili to add the spicy kick.

We tried 3 pizzas- and all of them are great! First is Super Papa, 14" Large, 580 pesos- thick crust

Super Papa is their ultimate flavor- topped with pepperoni, ham, italian sausage, mushroom, onions, green peppers, and olives. even though the crust is thick, it is still super tasty! one slice can indeed make you crave for more! here is another close-up shot-

A perfect cheesy treat!

Second pizza is the Fisherman's Catch, 14" large, 555 pesos, thin crust

This is my personal favorite. Instead of using normal pizza sauce, it features a garlic sauce as a base. It is then topped with plump shrimps, calamari, green peppers, and onions. One super white pizza! Yummy!

The thin crust version of Papa John's is a nice option for people who are not fond of breads/crust. It is  cooked evenly without burning the edges.

The last pizza, is the Bacon Chicken Ranch, 14" Large,555 pesos, thick crust

From the name itself, it is topped with Bacon and Chicken spread with Ranch dressing. I also love this pizza and was able to eat 2 slices of it. The chewy thick crust is just right for this flavor. Here's another shot:

Aside from pizza, they also offer several pasta dishes. Of course, they won't miss offering the famous Carbonara, 180 pesos, serves 2-3 people

Their rendition is good but just like any other carbonara. No special kick that makes it worth ordering again. Nonetheless, it is heavily topped with bacon and sauce which will make you like it.

Next is Diablo Burst, 180 pesos
From the name itself, this pasta is quite spicy, topped with sausage, mushrooms, onions, garlic, and red peppers. If you love red sauce, then go for it.

Last is the Meatball Bolognaise, 195 pesos

Even though I wasn't able to try this one, their meatball pasta  sure looks enticing, topped with big and juicy meatballs. Great for meat lovers out there! 

For drinks, we had Green Apple, Passion, and Pink Grapes Soda, 

These drinks tastes like a normal soda with a touch of flavor. It's refreshing and not too sweet which pairs well with the pizza and pasta.

Last, and my favorite part, is dessert time! I truly super love their Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream!

This dessert is lethally yummy! Aside from the very rich chocolate flavor, it also has a moist texture! The cross section is filled with chocolate! here's a shot- warning: deadly delicious

Actually, after tasting their chocolate cake, this now ranks as one of my favorite cakes. If you are curious, then better try it! You'll feel super happy after for sure!

Aside from good food and ambiance, Papa John's truly provides great service. The crew are very friendly and ready to answer the inquiries about their menu. They are staffed  well, so you can call for help or assistance anytime you need it. 

That's our Papa John's date. Will i come back? definitely - YES. Papa John's was able to prove that it is a new pizza place which offers unique and delicious food for all. Here's our memorabilia picture! Again, thanks Openrice!
