Garden Fresh Thin Crust Pizza
-Ermita, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place (15) (see also TERRP)
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.
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.
