Greenwich is a Philippine pizza chain.  Established 1971.  Over, I dunno, a million stores throughout the country, 71 in Metro Manila alone, including 1 in Robinsons Place.  According to the corporate slogan, it’s “the Philippines’ Favorite Pizza Chain” – registered trademark.  Pizza variations are rather limited, just a couple American-style meat options, Hawaiian, veggie.  The local flavor comes from the Filipino spaghetti and fried chicken.

Marketing messages, especially on point-of-sale ads, all seem to emphasize quantity (see also 5.031 Baconator Mushroom Melt).

The Garden Fresh Thin Crust Pizza was okay.  The crust was nicely crispy yet chewy, though a bit salty.  However, the toppings included pineapple, which I hate – should’ve guessed from all the emphasis on Hawaiian.  The cheese and sauce were blah.  I wouldn’t go out of my way for a repeat visit, but I’d be willing to try a pepperoni if circumstances forced me back.
