Indeed, the better fresh dough...
Instead of the usual 911-1111 or 77-777 or 789-9999, we now have a new number to call to get our pizza fix. For now, you can call Papa John's depending on the branch nearest to you. According to their staff, though, they will have a unified delivery number soon.
My hubby was in the mood for pizza one weekend, so we drove to Papa John's in BF Homes after mass to try some of their menu items as well.
Cream of Mushroom (P49)
I love mushroom soup, and this was okay. Submerged were pieces of mushrooms and croutons for texture. It was creamy, albeit I would have loved it to have that hearty trait.
Mozzarella Sticks (P129)
I wasn't satisfied with the Mozzarella Sticks. I really love these breaded cheesy morsels, and so I usually expect much from places that offer them. I felt there was way too much dough than cheese. On the other hand, it being a bit rubbery may be more due to the fact that we weren't able to eat it right away.
I'm not sure why they call this cheese sticks, it looks more like a pizza blanketed with cheese. Garlic and cheese is always a nice combination so if you're just hankering for something to munch on, or a filler to your meal, this will do.
Caesar Salad (P99)
The salad was pretty decent. The bacon strips were crunchy, the greens were at least crisp still, and not wilted, and the dressing had a nice tangy taste. The powdered parmesan cheese was of course a nice, sharp touch. I was hesitant to order this at first because fast food stores usually had wilted greens in their salads, while all the other elements were dry and unappetizing. Fortunately, this wasn't the case here.
Their Carbonara was surprisingly good. There was something distinct in the flavor, it's much closer to the authentic carbonara than what other similar stores carry.
All the Meats (P340 9 regular; P470 12 family; P575 14 party)
I found a great alternative to our usual Pizza Hut/Shakey's/Yellow Cab pizza night pig-out sessions. True to its mantra, Papa John's pizza has better fresh dough. Every bite made me feel like I'm eating a rustic, Italian slice; powder falling from the crust littered my plate as my mouth closed in on that meat-covered mozzarella.
If you're in the mood for pizza and pasta, Papa John's is a good choice. You can also have them deliver everything to your house, then go put on some movies, and bond with the whole family.
