Don’t you just love pizza? Pizza is a staple food for kids and adults alike. It’s simple, it’s made fast, it’s customizable and it tastes good. That’s probably why it’s gained popularity over the years.
So What is pizza?
According to the Miriam Webster Dictionary, it’s an Italian dish made typically of flattened bread dough spread with a savory mixture usually including tomatoes and cheese and often other toppings and baked — called also pizza pie.
This dish’ origin goes back to AD 997 in Gaeta(Central Italy), where the word “pizza” was first recorded. Modern pizza, however, has their origins in Naples.
Pizza then gained popularity worldwide after world war II when soldiers from the war were stationed in Europe who would then bring this dish to America.
So what makes Motorino different?
Motorino first branch is originally from Brooklyn in NYC, since then it’s been able to establish its brand and create a global audience for their famous Neapolitan style Brick oven pizzas.
Their BGC branch is a 40 seater restaurant, with low-hanging light fixtures, wooden tables, and iron rods. It’s a nice place to have intimate dinners, or when you want to have some wine with your friends.
The first pizza we had was the mushroom and truffle pizza. The crust is light, airy and crispy but the tomato sauce overpowered the truffles.
The next dish we had was the Manila clams and bacon in olive oil.
We love the simplicity of this dish especially because they used fresh pasta it’s bouncy, and springy and is well complemented by the sauce. It elevates the flavor of the pasta, it’s salty yet refined from the briny clams and the bacon adds depth making it well balanced and complex in flavor.
The Calamari was served late, but the tender squid coated with this crunchy exterior with excellent with tartar sauce.
Insider tip: Ask for marinara and add spicy chili oil this elevates the dish even further.
The second pizza we ordered was the Parma ham and arugula pizza. You can see the thick slices of Parma ham complement the arugula that’s topped on the crispy crust and thick layer of mozzarella. This is definitely one of the better pizzas they have in Bonifacio Global City.
Our experience in dining in Motorino was truly a pleasant one, they have nice ergonomics with their interior, wonderful service, and excellent food. Ironically, what We ended up loving was their manila clams and bacon for your pasta as it’s one of the best oil based pasta we’ve had that’s oil based. For the pizza, you should try Parma ham and Arugula.
One of the things we love about Italian food is the simplicity of how they transform simple ingredients into refined dishes. Motorino delivers in terms of taste, quality and service.
