So off we went to check it out. We still couldn't quite believe that such a promo was in place so we reconfirmed with the server. Basically, you choose three of the four pizzas being offered for the promotion and then pay P499. The four pizzas included in the promo are: Margherita (P275, pictured above left), Neapolitan (P285, pictured below left), Vegetarian (P275, pictured below right), and Hawaiian (P305). There is a tiny little catch though -- you have to order three DIFFERENT pizzas.
We decided to go with the Margherita, Neapolitan, and Vegetarian pizzas -- which normally would've cost us P835. There were five of us in the group and a total of 24 pizza slices to share so it was all good. The Hawaiian Pizza seemed interesting since it was the most expensive one on the promo but a couple of people in the group disliked pineapples so we didn't get it.
Gourdo's did not disappoint. We could see the pizzas being baked in their wood-fire oven and wow, they were served really hot and fresh. Of all the variants we tried, we liked the Vegetarian Pizza best. It was topped with eggplant and zucchini slices, onions, and fresh tomato. The combination was astoundingly good and incredibly aromatic. Even my hubby who would normally steer clear of eggplant and zucchini was impressed. Margherita was okay, for the usual tomato-cheese-basil basic Italian pizza, it was great. Neapolitan is on the salty side since it's topped with anchovies, but still yummy nonetheless.
After gorging on the pizzas, we just couldn't leave without trying out Gourdo's gelato, which came in all sorts of flavors like Almond Roca, Nutella, Irish Cream, etc. Nutella is the undisputed bestseller but hubby and I decided to go the fruity route and ordered Cherry Marble Swirl to share instead. Gourdo's gelato is very rich, milky, and creamy, but it melts fast so it's best to eat it as soon as it gets to your table. The Gelato is a whopping P100 per serving, which is double the price of Caramia Gelateria's. One order is very small too. It's good to experience nonetheless.
Our group of five people spent a total of P200 each for everything we had that night -- authentic Italian pizzas and heavenly gelato. Not bad at all.
Originally, Gourdo's Pizza Promo was slated to end by July 31, 2009 but we were told that it has been extended indefinitely. Still, if you want to avail of it it's best to call first and make sure it's still ongoing. Thanks to Mark for the heads-up!
