A lof of words sould like Mr. Pizza. Misdemeanor. Mishap. Mistake. Miss me. Duh. Huh? The last one was the key takeaway since all we could think of after our meal was Huuuuh?!? (while scratching our heads and staring at our near empty wallet).
Mr. Pizza at SM North The Block is a Korean chain, to explain the “date” worthy price and barrage of Kpop patrons.
What brought us there were hunger and pizza, since nearby Gringo’s was jampacked and Tim Ho Wan was the usual kingdom queue.
The orders were plenty, though we knew deep inside that the bill will kill us later on. Little did we know that it’d be the chili.
The Potato Wedges taste the way they look. Triple carbo loading was the evening’s theme!
The Seafood Real Tomato Spaghetti was finished in a few bites. It was on the teeny weeny side and did not match our dire appetite. At least i counted 2 or 3 shrimps but that was it!
New York Style and Crema Pollo pizzas came in by batch. Actually the wait was quite long and so we did not enjoy the pizza and pasta at the same time – which is very important to us.
What I enjoyed about the Crema Pollo was its thin crust, so thin that I could finish the entire pie on my own. That’s how hangry i was. HANGRY!
The pizzas though (non Premium) are hmmmkay so if you’re on a date, you may be allowed to splurge on those special flavoured crust. However if you’re having a post football game dinner, quantity over quality!
Here comes the fun part. My dad asked for Chili flakes, and 2 strange things happened:
1. Apparently the place only has ONE cannister of chili flakes, which the waitress handed over to us. FINE. Matipid sila.
2. It was near empty so my dad asked for a refill, so the girl took the jar (yay!), opened it (OMG) and placed a dessert spoon for us to use (HUH?!).
The practice of illogical economy in an expensive pizza place is a marketing diaconnect for me. Sorry Mr. Pizza 😦
Oh 2 other things we disapprove:
1. Not very sanitary when handing out utensils. I am so OC when it comes to food handling and even our maids know better than nearly touch the tip of a spoon even with tissue paper.
2. Closing off half the store (with people still eating at the far end) and conducting general cleaning at 8pm when the store closes at 10pm? Reasoning: our boss is coming tomorrow. Hmmmkay. Boss > Customer.
The bingsus were okay and on a P80 promo. I liked the popping bobba on my mango bingsu!
Thankfully the spoons did not leave a salty after taste. That would’ve been finger licking good!
