A New Look at Greenwich

I've always been a fan of the Greenwich Pizza Commercials. I can't help but laugh over the creative ideas that they had and mind you.. it works! Who cannot forget their famous line.. "ANG CHEESY!!!" and elegant looking Anne Curtis pushing that car. Eventually, those commercials got to me and I just HAD to drop by a Greenwich Pizza and Pasta store to check out  how "cheeeeesy" it was. Rache and I went to the brand new Greenwich Fast and Casual Store in Trinoma, 2nd Floor. I LOVE THEIR NEW LOOK! 

The Cashier looks like a barista in a posh cafe! :)

Love the interior look and lighting! Plus the posters are inspiring! :)

Now this nook definitely looks cozy enough to bring friends over to chat and eat!

The ambiance really drew me in! I loved the cozy feel to it. BUT I would say its the restaurant's furniture that was the real winner! It made me want to stay there for quite some time!!! 

ME totally luvin the red chair. Made me feel like a queen! :)

Rachie admires the interior design as well! She's an architect -- so yeah, she'd know!
Of course, besides the ambiance I ended up really enjoying the FOOD! Yes! The food! Ok honestly now, I haven't been a big fan of Greenwich coz I thought it was... well... let's just call it "another-random-fastfood-pasta&pizza-place-not-worth-my-money". BUT eating there just blew me away! Now, remember Anne Curtis' famous commercial or advertisement? 

I ordered the Lasagna Supreme and as a side dish -- Onion Rings (lol. I just HAD to taste it to compare other onion rings that I've tasted from other restos!).

New Crunchy Onion Rings, Medium Size, PHP 49.00

Lasagna Supreme - PHP 89.00 Snack Size Ala Carte

Ok and let me tell you -- YES IT IS CHEEEEEEEEEEEESY!!! I love LOVE LOVED IT!!! Personally, I like pasta more than pizza. And definitely this one is a winner in my book! Every bite was delicious! I love the whole combination.. especially the right amount of cheesiness in it. It was cheesy, creamy, meaty, and definitely deserved the title as Greenwich's "Best Tasting Premium Pasta Ever!" So check out the new and improved Greenwich Fast and Casual Store at Trinoma Mall--one of the few of this type of Greenwich store around Metro Manila.

i LOVE Frutti Froyo!

Taken from 
Summer is soooo here in the Philippines and because of this, I've searched  found my new snack/dessert addiction... FRUTTI FROYO! One of our friends recommended this to us, and once I tasted it.. I GOT HOOKED!

One of the amazing things that I love about Frutti Froyo is the fact that its a SELF-SERVE FROZEN YOGURT -- meaning I can make my own mix! Each time I visit Frutti Froyo becomes a unique experience because I can choose from a variety of flavored yogurt and awesome toppings AND I can choose how much or little amount of each yogurt or topping! I have the control! And I absolutely LOVE it! 

Yes those nuts are hidden somewhere under those other yummy toppings!

I've tasted the chocolate yogurt flavor (which my dad and brother is totally addicted to) and the typical tart yogurt flavor and those are my favorites! The toppings are sooooo awesome! Whenever I eat yogurt, it must have a lot of CRUNCH to it... and Frutti Froyo satisfied my craving for nuts! They have pecans, walnuts, cashew, almonds, and even hazel nut toppings to choose from. And yes, my frutti froyo MUST always have all of those nuts in it! hehehe.. of course, the usual yogurt toppings are available there. 

But I must say what makes Frutti Froyo unique is that they have GHIRARDELLI chocolate sauce (and also caramel I think..) available to make your Frutti Froyo experience so much more memorable for the chocolate lovers out there. :) love love love it!

One of the best part of eating at Frutti Froyo is that you have control on how much you will pay for your Frutti Froyo experience because the price is based on how much it weighs! Each ounce is Php 18.00. Not bad eh? And check this out, they also recently gave out a loyalty rewards card. For every 10 ounces single receipt purchase, you get a sticker.

Collect all 10 stickers and you get ONE FREE CUP up to 10 ounces with any flavor or toppings of your choice! 

I got my rewards card PLUS a 10% discount card on next single receipt purchase earlier this year as a promo for filling up their survey form. :) Thanks FF! Anyway, all this talk of yogurt has made my mouth water.. so why not drop by at the nearest Frutti Froyo branch near you! 

I want some more... :(

with Friends and Family at Trinoma Frutti Froyo Branch!
