First slice at Project Pie

We finally had a chance to drop by Project Pie, a much-talked-about restaurant that offers make-your-own pizza.  We ordered two kinds of pizza, one savory and one sweet: the No. 7 and the Strawberry-Mango Nutella.

The No. 7 (Php 285) has cheese, prosciutto, and caramelized onions.  All these ingredients were on top of a thin and crispy crust.  How was it?  It was delicious enough.  There's a good balance of salty (from the prosciutto) and sweet (from the onions).  The cheese was mild enough to highlight the aforementioned main ingredients.  The crust was light, crisp, and fresh, although a tad burned.  It also became cold and tough fast.

The Strawberry-Mango Nutella has small pieces of mango and strawberries and generous drizzles of the famous hazelnut-chocolate spread.  There's a good marriage of flavors: the strawberries were tart, the mangoes were saccharine, and the Nutella was semi-sweet.  The crust's hints of saltiness tempered all the sweet, fruity goodness of the toppings.

Honestly, we found the food here overpriced.  Considering that the tastes of the pizza we ate were not mind-blowing, and that the pizza was small (4 slices), we figured that much of the price was for the hype.

We went to the Eastwood branch and we found the branch cool, with its modern decor, wood and steel furnishings, and its full blast A/C system (literally, cool!).

As for the staff, well, they were friendly enough.  But at times, they were unnecessarily noisy.

All in all, it may take a while before we go back to this place. If ever...
