Please excuse my gluttony if I tell you that my Motorino experience happened as a 2nd dinner one traffic-laden Friday night in Makati.
To add to the carbo load, I had a full height green tea Family Mart cone in between, that certainly added to the inches to my waist.
But a Friday night is certainly not complete without calling it a Pizza Night.
And so the (unexpected) Motorino (Greenbelt 3) was welcomed with open arms and excited fingers.
Quattro Formaggi and Salsiccia pizzas filled the table with their delectably chewy crust and cheesy splendor. The pizza was baked just right, that you look forward to biting on the center part the most. It’s the type of mindless munching that makes you forget about the week’s woes and focus on the pizza. Just the pizza.
There was something not killer-filling about the pizzas, that you can finish the entire pie, have a hearty burp and move on with life.
The Parmesan and Mascarpone Pasta was a different story but with unparalleled festivity.
The mildness of the flavor was a creamy contrast to the pizza, while the noodles can only make Linguini Fini hide in shame. The genuine chewiness of the noodles made me fork in pasta until the last drop of sauce came into un-being.
It was that homey, confident yet soothing Italian dishes that will make me come back for more.
