When my son is still in my tummy, I crave for pizza a lot. I would try any kind. Even those that you can buy from the streets. We even prepared a DIY at home several times.
My friends were telling me that when my baby grows up, he would definitely love pizza too.
And I was able to prove it, he was a pizza addict. You could just imagine the grin on his face each time he discovers that we’re ordering a box or two of pizza. It really spells h-a-p-p-y all over his face.
There’s this one pizza parlor at Uptown Mall which I find really cute, there’s a signage that says: “All we knead is love.” Upon reading it, I instantly thought of pizza, and yes they sell pizzas. Wood fired pizzas. The store’s name is “Peperoni Pizzeria”.
I heard that they originated from Singapore. Their first branch here in the Philippines is located at Greenwood and this one that we visited is at BGC (Bonifacio Global City).
What’s best to pair it are pastas right? So we tried two kinds. Carbonara with its’ creamy white sauce and tasty bacon, and we all like the red sauce since the taste of tomato sauce goes well with our pizza.
On a day like this, as simple as it is, I knew in my heart, that in our own little ways, we were able to make my son happy as I catch glimpses of his smiling face looking at us in random.
We have a very limited time to go around this mall but it was a generous amount of quality time that we spent together since we do not go out as often.
By the way, my son can consumed an entire box of pizza with 10-12 slices of his favorite variant all on his own. =) We don’t mind, as long as he is happy. As Peperoni Pizzeria’s principle says: “Appetite for Life”.

One of the good things I like best in my country is the wide choices it can offer when you wanted to give in to your cravings.
I have been postponing a trip to Enchanted kingdom (heaven knows I only wanted to eat Chimichanga there and meet my old friends) for several reasons.
Luckily, I found the nearest option at SM Aura. Foodie buddy and I found “Andale by Agave”literally on top of this faddish mall in BGC (Bonifacio Global City) which honestly I haven’t gotten around yet the whole of it since its’ conception a few years ago.
We found Andale from their touch-screen mall guides and the name itself denoted that I finally found what I’m looking for. Yey!
So off we headed to the Sky park. There are other choices of course, there’ s Lugang cafe, Coca and Mesa. Foodie buddy asked me if there’s a slim chance that I changed my mind and showed me the other places. As she herself didn’t have any cravings at that time, all she knows is she’s hungry. And we just had soft pretzels (coated in cinnamon sugar) a few minutes ago! =)
Be that as it may, the chimichanga won’t stop rocking and rolling in my mind. Oh, cravings!
The place is quite puny, probably just over a dozen can be accommodated on peak hours. We had ours on the corner, with bench on the side of the wall and single seaters fronting it.
And yes, I ordered for my chimichangas. I had it called in advance as Jen is still determining whether she will get burritos or quesadillas or both. Lol!
And both of us are contemplating on getting nachos, when the attendant brought us a tray of it as complimentary. Wow!
Besides as my order arrived, it is quite big and I might not be able to consume all of it if I’ll get another like the Nacho grande that is I guess good for more than 3 pax.
For the drink, we both enjoyed each of our preferred variants, Jen had yellow mango shake and I had the avocado shake. As expected: “Hi, simple syrup for my shake please.” And wish granted right away.
I asked Jen how is her quesadillas, she enjoyed it that much becausethe cheese inside are mozarellas. There are 3 degrees of spiciness forthe salsa which they will ask you to choose and it fits my palate andhers. I got the mild one and she got the second one, the one with “budra” spice (which originated from India), that pungent spice used for curries. The third one? It is super hot! And I didn’t dare to try it.
I like the sour cream. I like the mozarellas inside my chimis too. I like the baked beans (there’s a lot!), and I like the mild salsa. I wasn’t forced to eat something I don’t really like but I have to because that is just the way it is. Here, they provided me options.
I’m really happy with my chimichangas. I can now delay another visit to the park.
Plus, they’ve got a wide array of spirits too!
Andale by Agave is located at: Sky Park, Fifth Floor, SM Aura Premier, C5 Road Corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. They also deliver, you can contact them at: 828-0355.
Those colorful chips reminded me of the violet nachos from Enchanted kingdom. =)
