Oh, you don't? Well it was five continents, fourteen months ago. I was feeling generous on my second blogversary.
Luna drew the winner from her ice cream bowl (video looks like it was edited by a ten-year-old) while we were at Tallow Beach in New South Wales, Australia. So who's the winner?
For months, the book forlornly collected dust at my mom's house.
This pizzeria got its name from an ancestral camalig (grain storage shed), a century old I believe, which its owners restored in 1980. It is housed in the resto's building, and customers get to gorge on crispy-crust pizzas inside it. We felt like we traveled back in time as we stepped through the door. Framed sepia photographs and antiques abound.The upbeat pop music didn't match with the Filipiniana interiors, but paired with our bottles of cold San Mig Light well.
We ordered Armando's Best which is topped with tons of ground beef, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, green pepper, mushroom, and cheese. It's available in one size, 13", and reasonably priced at P476. If you haven't had Filipino pizza, this hodgepodge may surprise you. The crust is not chewy. The tomato sauce has a hint of sweetness, the mushrooms from a can (at least I think so), and the cheese may not be the type you'd expect on a pizza.
But hey, it suits our taste. And it was a great accompaniment to our lengthy conversation about backpacking, volunteering, biking, parenting, music and... The old Multiply days. We could have gone on and on, but there was a meeting (first ever meeting of the people behind the Book Sharing Project 2012) in Manila that I had to attend. Our leftover pizza was packed for takeout, and we soon made our way to the jeepney stop for a ride back to Dau Terminal.
I bade farewell to Duni as I hopped on the bus, and smiled at the realization that I made a friend. The Historic Camalig Restaurant just became historic for me too.
