You read it right- there’s actually a branch of S&R‘s famous New York Style Pizza restaurant at Puregold, Cubao where non-members can dine at! For those who don’t know about it yet, or rather, haven’t tried the place since you don’t have any friends who have membership cards- you’re in for a treat! A real must-try place.
Garlic Shrimp Pizza – P109 / slice, P599 / whole
For just P99, you can already get a quality-and-quantity combo meal of one big slice of pizza (Cheese or Pepperoni) paired with an equally big soda drink already enough to give the average person a bellyful. Pizzas with more toppings such as Combo and Garlic Shrimp are P109 per slice without drink and P599 for whole.
Pepperoni Pizza – P109 / slice, P599 / whole
Not sure how much ml their soda drinks have, but what I can say is that they’re definitely bigger than what any other fastfood restaurants here in Manila have to offer.
Big Soda Drink – P45 or free with meal
Another must-try is their chicken meal- chicken that’s soft and juicy on the inside, and very crunchy on the outside! To top it off, it’s paired with steaming hot white rice and their signature black pepper gravy. If you’re hungry just like I was, you can always have both pizza and chicken with rice! at the same time!
Fried Chicken w/ Rice – P89
I was also able to try their 100% all-beef hotdog- it was okay. For the price of P106, I’d rather go with the pizza or chicken first. You can go all out on the toppings on the counter though to get the best bang for your foodie buck.
All Beef Hotdog – P106
Topped up with relish and sauces from the counter
Like I said, there’s a counter on the side where you can spam their sauces and toppings alike- catsup, hot sauce, mayonnaise, mustard, onion, and relish all you can! Though their pepper gravy must be specially requested from their staff at the front. Well, it’s their treasured sauce, after all.
Best time to go here? Just try avoiding lunch and dinner time on weekends as the store tends to overflow with patrons around those times. But yeah, I guess it’s not entirely impossible since the place does have a lot of tables and chairs laid out. I was able to dine here 3pm on a Saturday and it was still jam-packed though.
Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy the place as much as I did (or more) should you decide to try the place. Happy eating!
