I don’t know about you, but my family and I give our thumbs up to one of our favorites : FAZOLI’s in Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City. Since the day it opened in the Philippines more than a decade ago, we have been frequenting this fastfood for their combo meals, mostly pastas and chicken and their eat-all-you-want soft garlic BREAD STICKS :D Our 5-year-old son, Gabby can eat more than 3 of these bread sticks in one sitting!
Yes, there’s nothing special about their beverage line of usual sodas, orange juice (which I usually have) and (the not-so-good) iced tea but they also come in drink-all-you-can for only PhP 50+ and diners are free to self-serve to their hearts content!
Italian food has never been this affordable! A true value for money; good-tasting too! And did I say the ambiance isn’t that bad? There’s a mini-bridge between a koi pond at its facade. The pay-as-you-order counters are manned by friendly staff. The wrought iron and tiled stairs will take you to its second floor which has a walkway connecting the dining areas. Lighting is subdued; entire place is apt for family dining and chit chat with friends although it can also get packed especially on pay days. Fazoli’s is just a best alternative to noisy fastfoods.
After we heard mass at St. Pio Chapel near Eastwood City (view earlier post below), on a Sunday afternoon following 2 typhoons that badly hit the Metro and the Northern parts of the country; not to forget it’s a day before our son turns 5 years old; I became excited again to eat at Fazoli’s; thanks to my wife’s suggestion.
Where else can you find a delicious combo meal of PESTO and 2-PIECE-ITALIAN CHICKEN for only PhP 165+?
The pasta was just right for me, not too moist, not too dry. I LIKE PESTO so much and Fazoli’s version is one of my favorites for its simplicity and for being budget-friendly. The Italian chicken also doesn’t disappoint. One can easily appreciate the herbs and flavor well infused to its bones.
My wife, Tina and Gabby shared this plate…
BAKED ZITI, PhP 150+. Simply flavorful. I always like melted cheese on tomato sauce. Our son even dipped his bread sticks on this serving.
Then the three of us also shared…
PEPERRONI STROMBOLI, PhP 110+ It comes with a dip of stewed tomatoes and herbs.
So much for our late Sunday lunch!
Fazoli’s also serve other pastas, salads, submarino sandwiches, pizza of course, minestone soup, Italian rice.
Fazoli’s is located at Eastwood City Cyberpark, E. Rodriguez Jr. Ave., Bagumbayan, Libis, Quezon City, Metro Manila and also available across America, check HERE.
