KATIPUNAN Food Trip: Healthy Dining at Gino's Brick Oven Pizza

I highly recommend the food at Gino's Brick Oven Pizza. It's healthy, fresh and full-flavored. I'll share with you my two favorite meals that I always order every time I go there. No matter how determined I get to taste the other food on the menu, I always end up ordering these two meals. 

These are my two highly recommended meals:


This salad is made up of greens, prosciutto, sliced parmesan and pine nuts with dalandan dressing.
You can order the salad alone (195 pesos) or with burrata (440 pesos)
My tip: Make sure to order this salad with the burrata. This salad becomes unique when you eat it with burrata.

Cutting open the burrata with a knife, you see all the mozarella and cream oozing out of the mozarella shell.

What is a burrata?

Burrata, meaning "buttery" in Italian is a fresh cheese made from a mix of mozzarella and cream. The outside thin shell is a pasta filata curd made of buffalo and/or cow's milk mozzarella while the insides contain a soft, doughy, stringy, mixture of curd and fresh cream. (source: cheese.com)

This is how I eat the salad


This thin crust pizza is made of tomato sauce, prosciutto, kesong puti, and arugula 
and cooked in a brick oven.

The size is around 9 inches, cut into 6 slices, and cost 420 pesos.

My tip: Make sure to try this pizza dipped in Gino's spicy honey shown below. 
The unique taste of sweetness and spice adds another dimension to this dish.

It's a great idea to combine honey
with the flavor and spice of red pepper.

The restaurant is small and is almost always filled with people.
