Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza – Salted Egg Pasta vs Burrata

Simple and Straight to the Point – Salted Egg Pasta

When talking about food and restaurants, my sisters and I usually complain that most reviews are exaggerated. Someone will say that this restaurant is the bomb or this dish is to die for but in actuality, it is just normal. Fancy plating with good photography is the lifeline of online food/restaurant craze.

It is seldom that I encounter something that excites me, or makes me smile (strawberry basil from Merry Moo, hehe), or even confuse me. In this post, the star is the Salted Egg Pasta from Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza.

Salted Egg Pasta

Made from fettuccine, salted egg, bacon, cream and Parmesan, this pasta dish doesn’t wow you with its ingredients. It might even look unappetizing as there are no contrasting colors.

The first time I tasted this, I nodded. This is good. Something new for my palate. Very different from Marinara (of course) and deviates from the usual Alfredo. The salted egg is present but not in your face. The saltiness doesn’t overwhelm the dish and you can still taste the bacon. The pasta is also good. I’m assuming this is made in house as the consistency and bite is unlike the off the shelf kind.

If you’re looking for a different kind of pasta, I highly recommend Gino’s Salted Egg Pasta; and at less then P200, this is a dish I will always order when dining there.

Burrata

Hijacking this post because for me, Gino’s burrata dishes take the cake, and is my go to order whenever we dine there. Burratas are heaven-sent (not exaggerating). It’s fresh cheese made from mozzarella and cream. As you get a slice of it, it reveals its creamy soft center (mozzarella+cream) enveloped in the chewy mozzarella cheese its outer “shell” is made of. In our most recent visit to Gino’s, I ordered the Burrata with House salad–burrata plus lettuce, caramelized walnuts, dried figs, drizzled with balsamic dressing, and generous shavings of Parmesan cheese. The sweetness of the walnuts and the figs is balanced by the acidity of the balsamic dressing, and complemented beautifully by the creamy burrata. YUM.

Gino's Pizza

We love the pasta, we love the burrata, but what about their pizzas? Obviously, from the restaurant name itself, Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza pride themselves with their artisan pizzas. I’ve tried most of them, and they’re good. You really couldn’t make a bad choice among those they offer. Nothing over the top, just pizza done right. While they have the usual chili flakes for a little more kick on your pizza, they also have a bottle of spicy honey on every table if you’re up for a something a bit more interesting.
