Restaurant Review: Angel's Pizza Pasta Combo

First of all, I see the looks on your faces. Why would I blog about a fast food-esque pizza joint, you may ask?

Well, to be honest, it's because they sent me a whole lotta food to try, and I thought, well, I'm not a food snob and will eat anything from a ten peso stick of fish balls and 15 peso dirty ice cream to a multi-thousand peso slab of premium beef, so who am I to stick my nose up on a place just because it's a franchise?

Pizza is one of my favorite go-to foods, whether to order if I'm too lazy to think or make when I'm too lazy to cook but need something fast, easy and still good. The beauty of pizza is that unless you are a purist and a snob, you can actually top it with whateverthehell you like. Pinoys have contributed to the pizza world by making crazy concoctions like Laing Pizza, Sisig Pizza, and now even Lechon Pizza!

Anyway, with only 3 people at my house at the moment, we were overwhelmed by the amount of food we were sent, but first order of the day was to try everything out. We would decide what to do with leftovers later on. There were 4 pizza boxes sitting in front of us, 4 rice meals (chicken and pork) 2 calzones and 2 desserts. Where does one even begin?

I have my preferences when it comes to pizza toppings, but I am generally open to new ones as well. One thing I really don't like on my pizza though, or any cooked, hot, savory dish actually, is pineapple. One of the pizzas had pineapple so I completely skipped that one, but my parents enjoyed it.

This is their Fancy Aloha Pizza. Aside from just ham and cheese, it also has green peppers. I'm sure this is good for people who love pineapple and peppers on their pizza but those are the two toppings I like least, so I went for the next one immediately. I know at least 3 people who would thoroughly enjoy this though. Needless to say, we don't have the same taste in pizza hehe!

I honestly was not sure what flavor this was. On the list there is one called Angels Style, so I'm guessing this was it. This one had shredded barbecue chicken, onions and mushrooms topped with cheese. It was a bit on the sweet side from the barbecue sauce, but I honestly liked it. I like chicken, I like onions, I like mushrooms and I like cheese. What complaints could I possibly have? My mom found it a tad too sweet, but for a barbecue chicken pizza, I thought it was just right.

I think this was my favorite one- The Cheesy Melt Double Decker. It's like a pizza sandwich with a cheese pizza on top of a pepperoni one. It had a slight buttery taste to it. I think we collectively agreed this was the best one for all of us.

Lastly I tried the Cheesy Burger Pizza which is pretty much like an all-meat pizza with beef and bacon and lots of cheese. This will hit the spot for more traditional pizza lovers.

In all honesty, the chicken and breaded pork meals were good. They had really crispy skin and had lots of flavor. Unanimous opinion though: too salty. Very good flavor but please tone down the salt if possible.

Dessert: Brownie with chocolate sauce. Heat before you eat. :)
