My Saturday was tiring filled with travel and meetings. I was back in Dumaguete City for an important meeting with AGLOW Philippines and meet a good friend afterwards whom I’ve not seen for quite awhile.
Roaming around downtown area gave me a good idea to try a local spa for their promo of an hour massage at P 185.00 only. After the relaxing massage came the idea of eating somewhere near the place where I was staying.
Who could have thought that you’ll find a pizza house somewhere in Burgos Street which is filled with local and international acclaimed restaurants.
I noticed that there was no one inside the pizza house which made me to decide to choose it for faster accommodation. There was no one at the counter at first but when the personnel saw me standing at the counter, she immediately came out and offered me their “specialties”.
Having a short conversation with her led me to know a few things about the store.
For one, they have more than 5 stores across Negros Oriental with 2 within the city area. There are 2 stores in Dumaguete City, one located near the city hall and the other one near the former mayor’s house.
Second, they opened a year ago and the stores in Dumaguete and the rest of Negros Oriental are branched-out from their main store in Manila. Their prices are quite the same from all their branches in Dumaguete and the neighboring cities.
Third, they specialize in home made pizza on a thick crust.
After sharing these details, we went through their menu and noticed that they have a lot of flavors to offer for a hungry man. To note, they have 4 major courses with all time fave,healthy cravings,gourmet and premium.
They have a total of more than 20 pizza flavors ranging from 6 in. (kiddie),10in. (medium), 12in. (large),15in. (party) for their supreme sizes which only ranges from P 65.00 to P 285.00 per order.
After getting dizzy choosing which one to pick, I settled with their latest craze“Shawarma Pizza” on medium size which by the way cost around P 185.00.
The Shawarma delight is “oozing” with cheese and tastes like your typical “shawarma” recipe minus the meat. There were only a few shredded meat on the thick crust pizza and a few onions and veggies that could have ignited the cheese and sauce to it’s full flavor.
The pizza can really satisfy an empty stomach,especially it’s hot sauce
(verde “something…”! I was able to finish 6 slices alone and can rate it at 7 out 8 for flavor and value. Although I was really hungry at that time but I think I really ate it out of the tasty sauce instead of being “hungry”.
The top pick for the month can make you settle for the medium size pizza since it’s 12 inches can satisfy one man’s fill with but if you’re ordering for a group (or a couple with a big appetite!), I would greatly advice to get their party size delight.
Picky or not, the price is above average from your typical pizza house in Dumaguete City. Not to be biased about it, the one in Piapi tastes better on a thin or thick crust pizza at a cheaper price.
But if you’re in downtown area and at the hem of local diners and restaurants in the vicinity, Dexter’s Pizza is one good choice for a laidback weekend without rice.
