Me and my wife were on our way home after buying a box of Butter Ball Cake from “The Baker’s Table” when Bobo’s bright orange and yellow signage caught my eye. The place exudes a fun and casual energy that just makes you want to go in.
There is a short bar counter inside, while the rest of the tables and chairs are in the al fresco area. A tree sits right in front of the pizzeria which for me adds charm, specially for those sitting outside.
Bobo’s 10-inch brick oven pizza comes in the following flavors: Bobo’s Pizza (spinach, mushroom and bacon, PHP225), All-meat (Italian sausage, ham and pepperoni; PHP205), Quattro Formaggi (mozzarella, blue, white and parmesan cheese; PHP195), Quattro Stagioni (ham, mushroom, artichokes; PHP195), Margherita (tomato and basil; PHP175), Napoletana (anchovies, olives and capers; PHP175), Pesto (blue cheese and oregano; PHP165), Pepperoni (PHP175) and Hawaiian (PHP175).
We decided to try their Pepperoni Pizza (PHP175), and found it good. It was freshly baked and the crust was crisp. There were six slices and I ate three of them.
For pasta, they serve BOBO’s Pasta (like an-all meat version; PHP155), Pasta Al Nero Di Seppia (with squid ink; PHP155), Aglio Olio Tuna Pasta (with Spicy Tuna; PHP145), Puttanesca (PHP145), Carbonara (PHP145), Bolognese (PHP135) and Pesto (PHP125).
We have tried the Aglio Olio Tuna Pasta and enjoyed it. The tuna and anchovy taste was a good complement to the Pepperoni Pizza and it also had the right amount of heat. As I chewed on the pasta, the garlic and fresh basil leaves provided timely flavor zaps that kept things interesting.
Good food plus good service. Now that’s a recipe for success.
