Valentine's Day Shenanigans: Di' Mark's

We’re itching for some Italian. It’s been so long since we’ve eaten a good pizza. It’s Valentine’s Day and it’s exactly pay day (and since we also have to do our groceries), we decided to eat out instead. We haven’t tried Di Mark’s pizza yet. I’ve read good reviews about it. It’s a go.    
A little Di Mark’s History
It used to be a family resto which first opened on Menlo Road, Pasay City. Five decades of home cooked quality food, beat that!

Each Di’ Mark’s Pizza is made with our very own fresh dough, homemade processed tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, oregano and authentic olive oil – the big difference in pizza! (from their website)

Hubby’s vegetarian again for the night. It’s a meat-free dinner (except for his bacon bits!) So, here’s what we’ve ordered:

Tossed Green Salad
 salad greens w/ bacon bits, grated and cheese
 and Di Mark’s vinaigrette dressing

Normally, hubby would order a salad with a creamy dressing. It’s a first that he actually did enjoyed munching a salad with a vinaigrette dressing, so I’m guessing it’s that good. For me, all tossed greens tastes the same (well, it’s just me)

Fettuccini with Garlic and Olive Oil

This pasta is something. I haven’t tasted anything like it. Not too garlicky, pastas cooked just right, generous amount of cheese, has a distinct taste (I noticed it has roasted sesame seeds in it, hence the slight nutty flavor). Except for the excessive oil, overall it’s a WOW.

Menlo Special Pizza
Mozzarella, Native Cheese and Grated Cheese

What sets a good pizza apart? I believe it’s the crust. Di Mark’s Pizza crust is: thin, but not too thin, crunchy on the outside but still soft and chewy on the inside, baked just right and no excessive grease! This pizza is divine! And I love the earthy herbaceous taste of it!

I'm loving the old school picnic feel tablecloth! :)

The place is really small so expect it to be cozy. And I love their yellow walls (the color gives a warm ambiance)! We’re loving the cantina feel of the place. The sight, smell and feel of it. Yes, it’s home cooked quality food at its finest! Reasonably prized menu (we spent around P550 for our meal). The distinct food taste compensated its small serving size. The place was kinda packed that night, so I guess it’s to blame for the blah service.

We’re definitely coming back. Maybe after our long beach trip so I could chomp on more food. Oh my, this diet is killing me!
