Its finally been 1 year since I moved to Manila – which means its TIME TO CELEBRATE!
Today, I proud to announce the opening of my 2nd. restaurant here in the Philippines (July 31 Grand-Opening) – Salvatore Cuomo Café, at the Podium Mall, Ortigas, Pasig City, Metro Manila!
This newest café concept involves a more casual menu from the regular pizzerias I open, but offers some fresh new dishes, pizzas and desserts! Though I stand a firm advocate of my home town’s Neapolitan pizza (and you’ll definitely find them on our menu), that doesn’t stop me from playing around with different pizza recipes.
So we’ve added deep dish pan pizzas to our menu, that are slightly more rustic and filling than the regular Neapolitan pizza. And for those of you who are gourmands like myself, you even have the option of adding extra toppings – an opportunity you wouldn’t normally have in a traditional Italian pizzeria.
We have included a lot of hearty Neapolitan fare, like zeppole, arancini, fried squid and shrimp to name a few, with the addition of some other regional dishes from other parts of Italy, such as the Piadina (which slightly resembles a tortilla), that comes from the Emilia-Romagna region. And if you want a quick yet nourishing bite, try one of our Panini sandwiches!
Finally, as my wife always says, no matter how full she is, she’ll always have space left in her stomach for dessert! I’m not sure how she does it, but our desserts are definitely not to be missed! You’ll find not only the classics – like Tiramisu, Panna Cotta, Affogato and Zuppa Inglese, but also some mouth-watering southern goodies that I normally only have access to once I’m back in Naples – like Pastiera and Cannoli.
Open from breakfast (Breakfast start from end of August) to dinner, I can’t wait to welcome you to dine and relax in our modern, yet arboreal atmosphere of my newest venture!
Benvenuti e a presto! Welcome and see you very soon!
