No, we didn’t try the 36-inch pizza. There were only 3 of us in the group so eating a pizza that humongous is just impossible. A group of students near our table ordered one though. At that time, there was a promo at El Buono. A group of 10 can order a 36-inch pizza and if they finish it in 5 minutes, it’s free. We had a great time watching them stuff their faces with pizza. Too bad they weren’t able to finish it in time. They looked like they had fun though.
We ordered the Mexican Nachos, a 10-inch El Buono Special Pizza, Pasta & Chicken, and beer (San Mig Light).
While we were eating, 2 of the wait staff started setting up a beer pong table for the students. To be honest, I haven’t played that game yet. I find it… I dunno, dirty? Unhygienic? My friends need to get me drunk first before I play that game.
The food was not bad for the price. A budget of 150-300 PHP or 3-7 USD per person would be enough. The pizza was ok. It was great with beer, even though I had to remove chunks of pineapple off it (I do not like pineapple on my pizza). I didn’t like the chicken that much though. It’s as if it wasn’t cooked enough. I like my friend chicken cooked super crispy yet tender. The bolognese pasta was so-so. I liked their nachos.
I’d give the place 3.25/5 spoons.
